    I EDC 3 different flashlights.

    The TerraLUX TT-5 is clipped into my front right pants pocket. With 650 lumens it handles the heavy lifting of chasing away the darkness and blinding potential threats (but hopefully not me.) The crenelated bezel allows it to double as a weapon if necessary.

    A Streamlight ProTac 1L rides in a belt holster at 10 O'clock. This one covers medium duty work.

    For light duty, a Streamlight Nano rides along on my keychain.

    Streamlight Polytac HL. with a Camelbak belt sheath. The price isn't hateful, and its pretty tough. I'm a heavy equipment mechanic for a living, so this thing has it rough. Just shy of using it for a hammer. Plus its a drop in tac light for my AR carbine

    And my AK

    I carry three lights typically.
    I have a AAA mini-maglite that fits in the case for my leatherman.
    I have a AA mini-mag pro LED that I keep with me.
    I have a Harbor Freight freebee that I loan out when someone asks to borrow a flashlight.

    i do not understand why someone needs a umpteen bazillion lumen light for every day carry.
    small package and one handed operation is key to myself.

    300 lumens is perfect for EDC and great as a defensive tool for blinding.

    kinda depends the usage.
    my 9 lumen AAA mini mag works good if its dim and I need a bit of extra light without loosing your acclimation to the dark.
    my 274 lumen AA mini mag is used when I need to see in a dim area with lots of detail after being outside. Some NDE also requires a certain level of light.

    I guess it does depend on usage.....more is not always better but usually comes in handy. ... IMO

    That's why I like the Fenix PD35 I linked above. It does have a simple tail-cap on/off switch, but the side buttons lets me choose between 14, 50, 180, 460, or 960 lumens, as well as strobe.

    As far as size, my EDC knife lives clipped inside my right front pants pocket and I forget it's there. The PD35 lives clipped inside the left pocket and I forget it's there too.

    Normally I have it set for the 14 lumen mode, but being able to turn it up does come in handy.

    I'm not an expert... nor do I consider my self proficient. But I did take an 8 hour low/no light pistol course which changed my views on how to utilize a flash light for EDC.

    1980's vintage USN Issue two-D Cell Light I got when I was in the Navy. That is the one I end up using the most when I need a light. Also have a small Maglight that takes two AA Cells that works great as well.
