Re: EDC... What do you actually - Carry On Your Person - every day?

People who responded to this thread carry single CR123 or smaller lights as their EDC's.

I'll respectfully have to disagree on that. I can't speak for others, but for me it's most certainly not an issue of size but weight: the light I carry 12-14 hours on a daily basis takes less space and weights less than my wallet and probably gets used a lot more too. Carrying method also matters a lot, since bunched up in the pocket the width becomes obvious a lot faster than when carrying it on the belt. (Am I the only one who liked the belt pouches for cellphones when we used to carry phones that resembled Snickers bars instead of the current smartphone slate look?)

EDC... What do you actually - Carry On Your Person - every day?

A Preon Revo SS and P0 are on me 24/7 as my back-up keychain light and spare battery container, respectively - don't think you can do much better than these.

For my primary, I usually carry a NW Quark AA-X, Pro or Tactical UI, on 14500s or 3V lithium primaries (CRAA/14505). I'll also rotate among a NW D25A clicky, SC52, and L10 N219, which I consider roughly equal, but only on batts they fully support (I don't like lower modes bumping up).

At the moment, however, I'm kinda smitten with the Preon Hat-Trick:

Re: EDC... What do you actually - Carry On Your Person - every day?

This thread asured me that for the most part, the people who post in this forum are "NORMAL" and are not flashlight freaks.


Certainly we can see that for the most part. People who responded to this thread carry single CR123 or smaller lights as their EDC's.

I guess I am in the "flashlight freak crowd" but Im proud of it! I have a logic to what I carry. I would have it limited to three lights but somehow ends up being 4.

Thanks Bill.

The ongoing "What's in your pockets?" thread is an excellent thread. My intention was not to duplicate that thread but rather to get clarification on the term EDC. For example, every day, wherever I go, whether I am in a suit, or jeans, I carry a pocket knife, and with my car keys, a Nano. Also everyday on my belt in a holster, I carry my cell phone. These, to me are EDC items.

However, despite the fact that pretty much everyday, I use other flashlight(s), and literally, carry it to perform a task, (search the garage, walk the dog), but I put it back, under my work-bench, or on my desk when I am done. And despite the fact that I'll sometimes shove one into my pocket, I don't really consider any of them EDC lights. They are... 18650, 2D, 3C, or whatever... flashlights.

I don't want to derail this "What do you carry in your pocket(s)??" thread with a discussion of what is the definition of EDC, I just wanted to explain.

Thanks for merging the two threads, I was starting to feel guilty that the latter was getting so many posts that were similar to the original.

A Fenix E11 in my bag and a Xeno E03 in the car.


...whoops, just realized this was "on your person". In that case nothing right now. But I plan on getting a Streamlight Nano.

I always carry my EDC Eagletac d25lc2 and my voctorinox camper.
I would love to have a Victorinox trailmaster/trekker, but recently lock-knives were banned here, and the non-serrated version is really hard to find. (Netherlands)
