    I carry a streamlight Stylus pro. Its bright enough to use as a tactical light but it doesnt scream mall ninja either. It also makes a very good kubotan for pressure control on small joints. For SD purposes it is small and light, fits easily in a pocket. I want to say it is around 45 lumens...they make a newer model that is around 80 lumens. A good light and knife is a hard combo to beat.

    Sounds like a great light.

    I have several SureFire lights...great quality, and SureFire stands behind everything.
    Need a broken part replaced (i.e. Tailcap, etc.), no problem/no extra cost.
    I have tried other lights, but always come back to my Surefire lights.

    My last purchase was the P2X Fury Defender... http://www.surefire.com/p2x-fury-defender.html
    I can land planes with it...

    This began life as my duty backup light and has transitioned to retirement with me.

    I carry a Streamlight ProTac HL2 (600/200 lumen w/ strobe) regularly. I've been looking at the new Fenix PD35, although I'm generally not a big fan of the company.
    The Streamlight is fantastic.

    Nice light!

    IF you like the LX2, The new EB2 is pretty similar it just uses Surefire's 500 lumen TIR set up.

    Surefire EB2 Back Up with Tactical Switch

    Personally, I carry a Surefire back up. The EB1 is 200 lumens, it fits in my pocket better being that it runs on one battery.

    Surefire E1B everywhere i go. add a larger Leupold MX-221 or Surefire L5 Lumamax carried if i have a pack or bag to carry stuff in. these are now slightly old and under-powered by current standards at 80-100 lumens. i will upgrade to a 300-500 lumen light at some point.

    i might add that i don't have a modern weapon-mounted light, so the handhelds would be used, along with my handgun, in any SD situation that occurred in low light.

    I carry a Quark 123 any time I am out and may not make it back before dark.

    My main concern before purchasing anything is to check and make sure it isn't too "mall ninja" :what:

    I carry a Streamlight Scorpion X and a little no name as a back up

    Those of you that EDC a torch care to elaborate on your preferred method of carry? I.E. Pocket carry, belt sheath, pocket clip, etc...

    99% of the time I wear Carhart pants and on the left side there's the mini pocket with the hammer loop next to it. That seems to be the best place and leaves room for the normal pockets to hold the phone and stuff

    Depends on what I'm wearing. Usually pocket clip or belt clipped.

    Scorpion rides on duty belt, or in my man purse. No name light clips in slash pocket of 5.11 uniform pants, or in jeans pocket.
