I have not count. I carry a right angle flashlight with adjustable clip (SL Protac 90).
It works in most situation. Handheld/ clip onto hat or clothing/ set to different angle with the clip.
Oh no... we're going to need guidelinesDoes a flashlight clipped to a cap count as a headlight? If yes my use ratio changes
Great report, thanks!I like manker lights, and I am glad that you are happy with your choice.
While your Manker is a small light, it is too big for me to EDC. Mine is the little CooYoo Quantum, attached to my keys.

Shamefully, more and more I am using the light on my iPhone. I know... hang head in shame.
I am surrounded by flashlights at home and in my car. Not so at the office, but there I am never more than 50 feet from an exit.
Lights for me are tools, and I grab the most convenient one (ie the nearest one), or I walk a few steps to get the one that is best for the job at hand. Just as I don't EDC a hammer, but I go get one from the tool box, when I need one. Sometimes it is a big one, sometimes a small one. Sometimes, I need two!
Today the headlamp was the Sofirn D25L

I like the "always prepared" mindset.Great report, thanks!
Me, I'm more of an "always prepared" kinda guy and so I tend to carry with me most of what I'd need, specially for emergencies.
Great story again, Poppy! Thanks for sharing it.I like the "always prepared" mindset.
During the winter months, I am sure to put a long handled shovel in the trunk, with a length or two of 1/2 inch line. I have a tool box, some emergency blankets, a Sleeping bag, duct tape, an emergency commode, big black garbage bags, and more.
A few years ago, before covid, a few of us were sitting around in the office chatting. Somehow, it came up that someone was pulled over, and when they popped the trunk, there was a shovel, rope and duct tape. Wouldn't you think that is a little suspicious?
I laughed, and said... I have all that and more!
I was on an outing with my son, and he needed a big black garbage bag. His girl-friend said... ask your dad, I'll bet that he has one! LOL... she was right.
A few years back I was on the first winter camping trip with my grandson and the scouts. The men of the troop were very much set on... "This is a Scout run troop" "Sometimes they have to fail in order to learn"
I was new to the troop, so I didn't know exactly what the rules were.
The boys were trying to build a fire, but there was 10 inches of snow on the ground. They were supposed to learn that there is DRY wood on the inside of a log. Oh yeah they were struggling.
In the trunk of my car I had a

As I approached the scout master, to tell him, and offer it. I heard him say to another father/leader... "I see that Poppy has a duraflame in his trunk."
With that and some wet wood, they got a good smokey boy scout fire going. They told their stories, and ran their skits, and life was good once again in the park.
