    I need a SMALLLLLL Pocket light

    So I am finally starting to get all my carry gear in order. I've got my shiny new glock 19. A very nice Pure Kustoms Black Ops Pro Holster. My next 2 purchases are a new knife and a pocket light. Since I have knife that functions well enough I am concentrating on the pocket light for the moment. What would you folks suggest for a very small tactical light. I carry a lot of stuff in my pockets already (Front pocket wallet, keys, knife, blackberry) so I am looking for something as small and light as possible.

    Any suggestions?

    Those look like nice lights. Are the T10 and T15 the same? I definetly like the idea of using a easy to find batery like a AA.

    Thanks for the info!

    Get a Quark. From 4sevens.com. Quarks are designs by Mr. 4Sevens himself, and have garnered really good reviews on candlepowerforums.com and edcforums.com. Mine is the AA model.

    0.2 >> 3.5 >> 18 >> 70 >> SOS >> Beacon >> 90 lumens >> strobe.

    All lumens measurements for the Quark series are OTF (out the front), much like surefire measures theirs. Its hard to believe the little AA battery can put out that much light. Im running lithium (L91) AA's in mine. Got mine for $57 shipped free from 4sevens.com. Im getting another soon.

    EDIT: The Quark series is Type III aluminum too. Good for a tough work environment.

    around 65 bucks.

    Save some $$ in shipping charges - go to WalMart or Target. They have plenty very small LED's to choose from. Here in Mobile Alabama - Target has the better selection.
    Also, might find an ankle holster to hold the flashlight & maybe pepper spray or extra mag to keep pockets from being too cluttered.

    Fenix LD10 takes a single AA and has several different brightness levels and a strobe.

    +1...they may be more in the initial $$$ invested, but they just do it more right more of the time. They are the industry standard for LE and military.

    The difference is the bodies - one for CR123's and one for AA's (lumens are less with the AA's, but still 120 lmns). If you get one, you can get the body for the other battery type for about $15. Strobe, SOS (2 light levels), and 5 light levels. Make sure you get the 2008 version.

    Thanks for the suggesting Target. Just came from there and just picked up a pretty nice one for 25.00. I think it's offbrand (River Rock) but is small, has a clip and puts out good light. I'll probably get something a bit higher quality a bit down the road.

    Thanks for the suggestions all!
