I hope this doesn't get buried, it can really help you. I fucking love my mini flash light. You would be surprised at how much you will use one. You whip it out when you need it, and fucking bam, you can see the world. This is the one I have, I keep it on my person 24/7 and it is very durable. Don't let the small size deter you, it is fucking legit. On a dark night in my back yard, this thing can go out for maybe 60ish yards. I'm not even a delivery person, and it was one of the best investments I've every made. I just keep it on a lanyard that I always have on me. Usually in my pocket.

I don't want to come off as an internet jerk, but this seems to be more of a teenage survival-fantasy kit than an EDC kit. I would like to offer a couple of friendly take-it or leave-it suggestions.

  • A small lighter (Zippo or disposable Bic) would get far more use than a firesteel in day to day life.
  • For $9 more you could get this great flashlight. Cheap Chinese tactical flashlights are fun. The first thing I carried around was a cheap 2AA chinese light like that one. That has long since broke. So have the next few lights I bought. But I've been carrying this Streamlight for 2 years now (bought back when they were only 24 lumens). The difference in size between a 2AA light and a 3AA light is huge, you don't notice you have it on you until you need it.
  • Leave the caffeine and water purification pills in your bug out bag and replace them with ibuprofen and Tylenol (Acetaminophen). I run into sore joints a lot more than contaminated water.
  • Next, and it really hurts me to say this, but I agree entirely with goretsky: drop the knife. If you have a leatherman you will already have a knife on you. You're in school, getting caught with a knife is a hassle. At least with the leatherman you could feign ignorance.
  • One more thing. You're 16, you have a wallet. Go directly to your bathroom and put about 4 band aids in your wallet. I'm completely serious. People get cuts and scrapes all the time. Offering a band aid always makes you look good.
u/Everinyourfavor · 11 pointsr/EDC

25 dollars won't get you too far, but each of these is around 25 dollars or less.

Flashlight: Stylus Pro

Pen: Lamy or 701

Lighter:Zippo

Multitool:Wingman

Watch:Weekender

Wallet:Mighty

Shard: Schrade

Handkerchief:Plain

u/Subara · 7 pointsr/EDC

I recommend the Streamlight Stylus Pro. It's durable, thin, economical, and easy to carry around. It puts out really good light for its size and you can activate the light by doing just a push-press, if you prefer, rather than a full click-press.

u/PattonMagroin · 7 pointsr/EDC

If you aren't looking for something super fancy or "tacticool" I would suggest either the:

StreamLight MicroStream

or

StreamLight Stylus Pro

They both run on AAA batteries. I have the Stylus and it is fantastic.

u/recreational_usage · 7 pointsr/EDC
u/crispyscone · 7 pointsr/EDC

A few things I would probably get.

  • Flash light always comes in handy. I noticed you didn't say anything about one. I streamlight is a great brand with nice seemingly durable lights. You will probably lose it before it shits out on you or breaks. I prefer the stylus pro or the microstream (difference between the two is microstream is shorter. It's penlight size makes it easy to slip in and out of your pocket.

  • Always carry a good pen. Zebra makes decent pens. If you want to stretch your gift card further, you could get the f301 but I really prefer the f701, it's just a nicer pen. There is also the space pen if you ever feel you need to write something in zero gravity. If "tactical pens" are more your thing, you have plenty to choose from

  • saw you were looking at a cheapo fixed blade. If you were to get any "cheapo" fixed blade at all, seriously consider mora. You can read more about mora in this post, but I assure you that you will not find a better fixed blade for the price.

  • You have anything to carry your beverages in? Nalgene bottle or camelbak for water, thermos for hot beverages.

  • Get you a nice rum cake or whiskey fudge
u/EDCandmemes · 6 pointsr/EDC

Flashlight my dude, you won't be able to go back after carrying one.

Going by the rest of the stuff you carry i'd say a small AAA light that you can either attach to your keys or clip inside a pocket.

A couple of recommendations:

To clip on to keys: The Olight i3 EOS. 1xAAA 90 lumens, 45min runtime. Simple twist on/off, one mode, plenty bright for most daily stuff. If you want something multi-mode still good for your keys, the Thrunite Ti3 and Lumintop AAA Tool are honourable mentions too.

To clip to your pocket: The Streamlight Microstream. 1xAAA 45 lumens, 2.5hr runtime. Solid pocket clip and push-button that lends itself to be a really good momentary light but can be clicked on for continuous use. Really solid light, inexpensive, Tried and trusted by a lot of the EDC community. Honourable mention goes to the Streamlight Stylus Pro. Almost the exact same light but longer. 2xAAA, 90 lumens, 6 hour runtime if you don't mind the weight of an extra AAA on you.

Before anything else: Someone else said jack stands - get them. Don't die under a car. I almost did, it's easier to fuck up than you think.



I have the 1.5 ton HF aluminum jack, I wish I had gone for something a little bigger. It doesn't really have the lift height for bigger jobs.



Another thing I don't see mentioned: LIGHTS. I keep two of each of these in my garage:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06W2HTGFL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015UC17E/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Plus I have the Braun (HF) flexible work light:
https://www.harborfreight.com/390-lumen-magnetic-slim-bar-folding-led-work-light-63958.html
This thing is great, but I have the typical HF complaints about quality especially around its willingness to charge all the time. I put a washer on the battery and that seems to have solved the issue for now.



I wouldn't mess with a pneumatic impact unless you find yourself in a situation where you really need one and can't afford an electric. Your compressor flow rate has a lot more to do with its ability to run air tools than anything else, and unless you really have a shop quality compressor you won't run a pneumatic impact very long.



I'd wait until you really need an impact and if you find you do, I'd suggest this one:
https://www.lowes.com/pd/DEWALT-XR-20-Volt-Max-1-2-in-Drive-Variable-Brushless-Cordless-Impact-Wrench-1-Battery-Included-and-Charger-Included/999947862



Now it's not the best electric impact you can get - the Milwaukee and Makita versions are both marginally better - but it's available at every big box store, and when you factor in the cost of batteries it's WAY cheaper.



For hand tools, I'd go 100% harbor freight (pittsburgh). Most things can be done with 3/8" and a lot of extensions, but having 1/2" is really helpful. If you use it enough to break it, upgrade then. I use 1/4" for lots of things but it's a luxury for the most part. Get metric deep and standard depth sockets. I also consider ratcheting box wrenches nearly a necessity. Again, the pittsburgh set is a great deal for what you get. Get all the lengths of extensions you can.



If you find you want (or need) nicer hand tools, my next step up is generally gearwrench. This set is one of the few things I might consider a splurge on out of the gate:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BTEXPDK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1



You need a torque wrench. Someone else suggested the tekton 1/2" drive and I 100% concur if you had to pick one to start with. Make sure you learn how to use it and how to properly store it. A deep lug socket (19mm or 21mm usually) is your friend, figure out what size your lug nuts are.



I can't live without a couple pairs of vice grips. They're by far my favorite tool for grabbing spring-loaded hose clamps.



You need at least one dead blow hammer. They're cheap as hell at harbor freight (noticing a theme?)



Magnet trays are usually free at harbor freight with a coupon and purchase. Get a nice stack of them, they're priceless.



Other Odds and ends that I use a bunch:

  • I keep a 10mm T-handle which makes my life easier disassembling little crap under the hood

  • The $20 set of t-handle hex wrenches from harbor freight gets used more than just about anything in my garage

  • telescoping magnet

  • telescoping inspection mirror

  • Oil filter socket that fits the things you will work on. Will save your hands and knuckles.

  • 9 mil (black) harbor freight rubber gloves

  • you'll probably eventually need an O2 sensor socket. Get the crowfoot kind

  • 5/16" nut driver gets an absolute workout on screw-type hose clamps.

  • With the age of things you're working on, you're probably gonna need a mapp gas torch too

  • pumice soap, like fast orange or something of the sort

  • I get a lot more use out of my punch set than I expected, but not a must have

    Finally, abuse www.hfqpdb.com - there is often a coupon for whatever the hell it is you're gonna buy at harbor freight. If not, use the 20%.

    I'm sure I'll think of a bunch more stuff later on

    Edit: I told you I'd forget some stuff.

    Prybars are a must have

    A pick set is nearly a must-have

    One of my favorite things I've done is get a big bulk food scoop from GFS and put it in a 5-gallon bucket of oil dry. You end up needing it a lot.
u/Virisenox_ · 5 pointsr/EDC

> Any suggestions?

Anyone on /r/flashlight will tell you to go for a light that uses 18650 Lithium Ion batteries. They're better than alkaline batteries for a number of reasons, including rechargeability and greater capacity.

The go-to cheap 18650 light is the Convoy S2+. It's fairly small, bright, it comes in many colors, and it's cheap, but still a good light.
If you get a light that uses 18650s, you'll need a charger too. This one is by a good brand.
You can get that flashlight and that charger for about $25 (free shipping too!).

If you want a really specific flashlight, put all of your requirements into this flashlight search engine website, or post on /r/flashlight.

Some other favorites are:

u/doomrabbit · 5 pointsr/CCW

I know this is different than OP's criteria, but I love my Streamlight Stylus. The light in your pocket is better than the one on your dresser.

It's pen sized and aways fits in a pocket, can be clipped to pocket edge. 65 lumens is just enough to not blind you from reflections, but more than enough for target ID. Only downsides are you can push the button in your pocket and kill the battery but it's uncommon, and you lose it because it's so damn handy and constantly being used.

u/[deleted] · 5 pointsr/pics

31 lumens is pretty bottom of the barrel light for something nearly 40 bucks (closer to 30 for some models). The streamligh pro is much more portable (think pencil) outputs 26 lumens 5 inches long and runs off 2 triple As with only a single LED. It uses aircraft grade aluminium and is ~20 bucks. If you want high end its Preons S2 its quite expensive at 50$ but its rated at 120 lumens, still manages to be smaller than the streamligh pro and have more features. My cellphone's dual LED camera flash outputs more light than your light. Just saying.

u/gedden8co · 4 pointsr/CampingGear

I am poor, so these are my budget suggestions.
You can spend less and get a great knife, the Condor knife and tool Rodan. $30.
I bought it and a Condor Kumunga because I could get both for the price of a BK2 or Izula. They are very utilitarian. Not pretty at all.

For that I have a #2 style Mora $15. There are many Mora knifes under $20 and any would be great for you. Stainless or Carbon steel, and Wood or Plastic for the handle.

Buying a compass you don't need anything fancy. Get a Brunton compass for again, less than $10. That exact compass has lived in my everyday backpack in an outside pocket, and shows no damage after 5 years or so.

As far as flashlights, that is a whole new world. I'd do some looking because you have a lot of choices these days.

I'm using a Streamlight Stylus Pro, again $20 and AAA's. And a few smaller streamights, the Nano at $8. My nano flashlight get's paired with my last hope knifes. A CRKT RSK MK5, at $16 and a Spyderco H1 $39 fully serrated ladybug3. Also I use a keychain Swiss Army Knife.

u/jeanjacques_rousseau · 4 pointsr/medicalschool

I can endorse this one.

Very bright, and very useful for checking wounds for morning rounds on whatever surgical clerkship one might be on.

u/400HPMustang · 4 pointsr/EDC

Discreet and light weight are also subjective. Do you carry a bag on you every day? or are you wearing cargo pants every day? or does all this have to get stuffed in the pockets of your jeans?

A lot of these things are completely personal choices and as such you might take a step back and evaluate what you have and consider what you find wrong with your current choices.

You might start with an Altoids tin FAK or Altoids tin survival kit

Knives...small, inexpensive, discreet, unassuming. A few come to mind

CRKT Squid

Keshaw Shuffle

Wallet. What's wrong with the one you have now? or do you just want a fancy new one? All my life my leather bi-fold wallets have served me well. Only had two in over 20 years.

Flashlights are good. You can go knock off or Streamlight.

Pens. People recommend Fisher Space Pens such as the one I linked. They're quality pens, durable, stylish and refillable. I personally carry grey Bic disposables because people steal them or I lose them.

Multi-tool...I suggest Leatherman. Again it's subjective based on the tools that you need. Take a look at the Leatherman website. They have a good tool selector based on size and number of tools you want/need. My Skeletool CX has always served me well.

A way to carry keys? What's wrong with how you carry them now? If you're stuffing them in your pocket traditional key rings are still fine. Carrying them of body? on a bag? Then some sort of carabiner works, like the Keybiner or some variation. Don't want something rattling around? The Key-bar is nice if you don't have giant keys.

u/rturns · 3 pointsr/livesound

Practice this!

Buy This or something similar.

Make sure you can do This!

Also, a good cable tester, a Behringer CT 100 will suffice.

If you can wrap cables in a hurry, have a flashlight, know how to troubleshoot and repair cables then you will be pretty valuable.

Also, re-read what /u/PM_me_guinea_pigs had to say above, he hits the nail on the head!

Don't be late, don't drink, don't do drugs, you will be ok!

u/iowamechanic30 · 3 pointsr/MechanicAdvice

A good reliable flashlight is invaluable when you need it, get a good one cheap flashlight tend not to work when you need them most. I recommend these pen lights they're compact, very bright and durable. http://www.amazon.com/Streamlight-66118-Stylus-Flashlight-Holster/sim/B0015UC17E/2

u/lholladay · 3 pointsr/nursing

I grabbed this one over the holidays, and it's been great so far.

u/BarkWoof · 3 pointsr/EDC

Not bad. A few items from my EDC if you're interested:

My pen light.

My trauma shears.

Edit: a few more.

Hip clip. I've gradually come to prefer wearing my stethoscope this way. And for goodness sake, DON'T leave yours on the rearview mirror of your car. Ever. Repeated heating/cooling caused my Cardio III to crack at the point where it hung from the mirror.

Reflex hammer. Mine isn't as cool as this one...

u/m0nday · 3 pointsr/flashlight

I love my Streamlight Stylus Pro. It's about the size of a Sharpie. I keep mine in a pen pocket on my uniform, and it's a great "quick draw" light. It pumps out 48 lumens, which is all you need for up-close and smaller areas. Best part is it's only twenty bucks.

u/twoshotracer · 3 pointsr/EDC

my flashlight came with a small holster I carry on my belt in front of the second loop going clockwise (about 2:45) I keep my knife clipped to the inside of my jeans so that the holster is covering the clip, the clip sits on my jeans and the knife is pressed against my underwear (makes pulling my pants up difficult but ive gotten used to it) ive been pulled over by police twice while carrying this way (in NH and FL) and have never been told what i'm doing is wrong, that's how I carry, but rules may be different by you

u/my_man_krishna · 3 pointsr/EDC

Your pricing figures are a bit off.

20-30 will get you one of several different models of Streamlight, Terralux, or Inova flashlights. All of these significantly outperform the Maglite and come from reputable manufacturers with lifetime warranties. Inova and particularly Streamlight flashlights are popular with service personnel due to their reputation for tolerating rough treatment.

I wouldn't pay significantly more for flashlight nowadays. In the last few years, technology has progressed to the point where even the low-end lights can reliably do the job for the vast majority of applications.

u/phobos2deimos · 3 pointsr/techtheatre

I'm a sound guy, I can help:
-Six pack of plain black tee shirts
-Pack of black hair ties for his pony tail
-Gift card to Old Navy (so he can restock on cargo shorts)
-Nice beard trimmer for his goatee
All kidding aside, a simple but often appreciated gift would be something like a nice small flashlight. You can never have too many. I like this one.

u/3danman · 3 pointsr/flashlight
u/grumpy_lump · 3 pointsr/ems

I have my own stethescope; I'm not a fan of other peoples junk in my ears. It's easy to go down the path of having all the gadgets, but honestly, most of the stuff you'll cary will be ambulance/company stock. Things like pens, penlights, trauma sheers, extra gloves.

I always have a small folding blade on me (I'm in NH so no clue whats legal there). As far as essential supplies I keep on hand all the time, a bottle of 5 hour energy for that 3AM transfer, a pack of gum and a zippo. Multitools are pretty standard fair, as well as a beefier penlight. I like mine cause It beats the giant maglights we keep on the truck and it's useful for probing into pockets (You told me there weren't any needles on you, and yet what's this in your breast pocket?)


Remember it's less of what you have and more of how it is presented. Dont be this guy

u/SofaKing_Dope · 3 pointsr/EDC

I`m sure you'll get a lot of great responses with suggestions but I was in the same position recently and I found the streamlight stylus pro fit what I was looking for. It has a metal body so it's really durable, 48 lumens (brightest I could find), and produces a really good stream of bight light. It was also about 20 bucks. It works really well for me and idk why it wouldnt for you but at least give it a look. Below is a amazon link. Im posting from my mobile so sorry for any formating errors.

u/vehementvelociraptor · 3 pointsr/EDC

I have both the Streamlight stylus pro and the Streamlight Protac 2xAA. Both are solid.

The protac has three modes, high -> strobe -> low. Pretty useful, but it takes some getting used to to actually select the one you want. The button on the stylus is very stiff at first, as well.

u/iLoveLamp83 · 2 pointsr/EDC

I just picked up a Stylus Pro by Streamlight. You get good bang for your buck, and I like how slim it is.

It's probably not bright enough to blind an attacker, but it's great for rummaging through saddle bags, lighting up the sidewalk in front of you at night, etc.

Additionally; venom is transported through the lymphatic system, not the blood. If you "open" the patient up, you'll just have a snake bite victim who is now bleeding.

u/poundifzero · 2 pointsr/EDC

Concur, great light. Very popular on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Streamlight-66118-Stylus-Flashlight-Holster/dp/B0015UC17E. A cursory search of the reviews suggests that some have had issues with the switch and/or the clip. No issues in my case - I'll confess that I've bought two. One for work and another for my travel bag. Used to EDC with one, but found it too large to carry on my person for my personal tastes. FWIW, for EDC, I now use a Fenix E01 on my keychain.

u/JimmyTheFace · 2 pointsr/msu

I didn't have the dorm experience, but I lived far enough from campus that I would hang out there all day most days.

Quality shoes - you will be walking quite a bit. Depending on your style, consider something like a waterproof hiking shoe that will last through some like snows.

Reusable water bottle that will fit in your backpack well. Sparty's will fill it up, or you can use the drinking fountains.

I'm a fan of some of the /r/edc stuff as well, a small flashlight can be very useful, and shouldn't run over $20.

A small plug splitter, would be very useful. I have a more complicated one, but if I did it again, I'd get this. A lot easier to charge your laptop/phone when you don't have to convince someone to unplug theirs.

Either a collapsible umbrella or packable raincoat.

Extra headphones. I'm lucky enough to have accumulated several pairs of iphone earbuds, so if I lose/break one, I'm still okay.

  • Pen. Not sure of the brand, it was a gift.
  • Littman Cardiology III stethoscope.
  • Scissors that came with a pair of Rooke boots. I was sad to find out they don't include them anymore. Nice scissors for free.
  • Name badge.
  • K11 Bumper for iPhone 6+. Not super happy with it. It doesn't fit as well as I had hoped, making the buttons awkward to click sometimes.

u/enternets · 2 pointsr/TalesFromThePizzaGuy

if this is your first delivery job make sure you get a good small flashlight and buy some good pens to keep in your car at all times. I also bought a mini clipboard for a few bucks and had the credit card receipts on it. It increased my tips by a lot because when someone didn't fill in the blanks I handed it back to them and told them "You need to fill out the entire receipt" and 80% of the time would add a tip. Also, countless comments of "Fancy/Convenient!" as it is hard to sign a receipt when you have to find somewhere to do it at.

If you drive a older car MAKE SURE you have:

  • a good jack
  • 1 full sized spare in the trunk (junk yard sells these for under $20)
  • lug wrench - it makes it much easier
  • jumper cables
  • rain coat/poncho

    use the maps as much as possible and use google maps in a pinch. This gets you used to learning the lay out of neighborhoods and what not as google maps just tells you where to go.

It is nice and bright, but only about the size of a pen so it doesn't take up much space in my pocket.

u/dnphpf · 2 pointsr/nursing

I'll try not to sound like an advertisement. I've needed to use various ways to visualize patients at night for a long time, and I'll give you a couple of suggestions. This is an excellent one if you need a white light. It has a rather narrowly-focused spotlight which can help you keep it out of the patient's eyes and is also waterproof and very durable. I've had one for years. This smaller square flashlight may also be useful - it has both a white and red LED (with low and high modes for each) and recharges via USB.

Red is best for keeping night vision and not blinding the patient, but green can also work (but it tends to be brighter). If you're just checking for respiration, reflecting the light off the ceiling or wall can give you enough light in the room to visualize the patient (and the room as well if you're doing safety/security checks). I've found it useful to carry a flashlight(s) that can handle both red and white in both low/high power modes. Red usually does a good job illuminating the room, but sometimes it's necessary to see colors, and then the white beam is needed. Rarely does it wake them up, and I need to check on the patients four times an hour.

It’s under budget, lightweight, takes common batteries, and has a simple push button at the end.

I carry one around all the time. It’s a great light for nighttime walks.

u/tindercd · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Not from REI but I love this.

It's part of my EDC, keep it clipped in my pocket next to my knife. I don't use it every day, but every time I've needed it is more than capable of lighting up whatever I need.

Hard to go wrong with a Streamlight Stylus Pro for $20.

u/AlwayzPro · 2 pointsr/flashlight

[The stream light stylus pro runs on 2 aaa batteries and has 48 lumens all for around $21.] (http://www.amazon.com/Streamlight-66118-Stylus-Flashlight-Holster/dp/B0015UC17E/ref=pd_bxgy_hi_text_y)

Heres to hopefully winning

My brother in law has been wanting a penlight for low profile EDC

Thanks for the giveaway! You're too good to this community lol

> What addition would compliment this EDC?

You could always add a portable battery pack to keep your devices charged in case of emergency (there are lots out there, that was the first one that popped up on Amazon). Other than that, maybe a Clif Bar or two and a hand sanitizer pen. Lastly—because I recommend them to everyone—a Streamlight Stylus Pro would be redundant, but a very sturdy and bright alternative to your two smaller lights (which I'm assuming get lots of use in your line of work). The Streamlight and MicroStream are much more ergonomic and function using only one hand (having an end-cap clicky switch).

If you're willing to pay $20 for a badass pen light, here's what I have.

This has a multiple modes (low for checking pupil response, high for searching a house).

Comes in Neutral White, which you want.

Takes AAA batteries.

And is under $20... or pay an extra 10 for the shiny version


Or if you want similar, with single mode, simple on/off and 'momentary on' (this is where the light turns on when you half press the button, and turns off as soon as you release it) then the Streamlight Stylus Pro is just good at what it does.

I have a stylus pro and like it, but will replace it with the Thrunite when the time comes.

I use a Streamlight Stylus Pro - The momentary-press function of the switch is really handy.

My wife is hazard prone, so any knife I get her has to have a locking blade. So there's that - if she's haphazard. As far as a flashlight, I picked mine up a Streamlight Stylus as a stocking stuffer.

u/nickstricks · 1 pointr/sysadmin

I'll give you a run down on how I carry all of my stoof:

I carry a Leatherman wave, bit extension, and 1 of the bit trays in this. The cases clip is really sturdy, so it stays on, but since it slides on and off, I only pick it up off of my desk when I think I'll need it (which has been really often as of late).

I carry the driver for the iFixit kit, usb OTG cable, 128gb flash drive, micro SD usb reader, short micro usb cable, a spudger (I do almost all of the mobile repairs in house), the bits/extender from this kit interchanged with some of the iFixit bits, and two zebra f-701s in this.

That, plus a standard 1/4" bit extender sit in my front left pocket with this kits nifty little thumbwheel.

Then I just have a decent pen light clipped in my back pocket with my wallet.

Yes, I'm an EDC whore.

u/ToGoFurther · 1 pointr/EDC

Here is the link for the stylus pro. I've used both the regular and the pro, both are really nice, but I do like the pro a little better.

Uses 2 AAA batteries which are easy to find in a pinch.

It's like a large pen, fits in pockets designed for pens, though tightly. Carried a lot of different flashlights and I can safely say that out of all of them if I only had to have one it would be this one. I've lost one before and I didn't even consider any other options when it came to replacing it. Which is rare for me considering the amount my EDC layout changes.

u/SockMonkeyLove · 1 pointr/EDC

I carried a G20 for a good while then upgraded to a Stylus Pro by Streamlight. $20 And comes in a few different colors. It's been a great light, puts out a good amount of light for it being so small, and it fits very nicely in my pocket next to my knife.

u/martyring · 1 pointr/EDC

It's is an LED light, and it can be found here.

2xAAA LED flashlights:

u/Sterling_____Archer · 1 pointr/flashlight

I think that this light is the perfect go-to light for almost every "EDC'er." Compact, functional, and durable, with a solid 90-lumen output.

Thanks for running this giveaway!

u/Kulumatic · 1 pointr/flashlight

I've wanted a stlyus like light for a while... so I'd take a Streamlight Stylus.

u/thatotheritguy · 1 pointr/techtheatre

Small

Powerful light


Long battery life



Survived 2 washes

u/markagrippa · 1 pointr/emergencymedicine

My Stuff:

  • Surgical marking pen

  • Streamlight penlight

    Back pocket:

  • Trauma shears handle down

    Other pocket:

  • Rolled up bougie
  • Scalpel

    Neck:

  • Stethoscope. Maybe I'm just bad at the physical exam, but this is probably my least useful item
u/GoodOlJonesy · 1 pointr/EDC

It is a handy, well-sized little light. I carried a Fenix LD10 for a long time until it finally wore out on me. I just ordered a Sofirn SC31 over the weekend for a bit more brightness and functionality, but the Stylus Pro is a great addition to any EDC. Not sure whether it’s the pro or 360.

Here’s the link my Amazon order history gave me. Streamlight 66118 Stylus Pro LED PenLight with Holster, Black - 100 Lumens https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0015UC17E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_NCcDCbPF69QP2

u/Sneeko · 1 pointr/EDC

Haha, yeah. I've been eyeing a dedicated, lightweight flashlight such as this. As far as the SP3, I carry it in a Wenger Swiss Gear backpack when I need to take it with me (which is daily, to work.. even though I own the SP3, not my employer)

u/oh100 · 1 pointr/TheBrewery

Carried a Kershaw Select Fire for a year or so. Handy little bugger. Treated myself to a Spyderco and havent looked back
https://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-Knives-1920-Select-Knife/dp/B00GVJJW2G

My light of choice is a Streamlight Stylus Pro. Damn near every brewer/cellarman here runs one.

u/PabstyLoudmouth · 1 pointr/flashlight

Well, what I carry for everyday is the Streamlight Stylus Pro, small, pretty bright (90 lumens) and uses 2 AAA batteries. I have had mine in my pocket for well over 2 years and I love it. only complaint is that I wish they sold pocket clips for this at a reasonable price. If the clip breaks or bends it sucks, and new clips are like 12$ and you might as well buy another entire light at 19$.

u/BrandMuffin · 1 pointr/flashlight

I personally enjoy the Streamlight Stylus Pro. Its the perfect size to carry in my pocket. It's affordable and super bright.

u/AltoidPounder · 1 pointr/EDC

Came to say this. I've been carrying the Stylus Pro for a few months now and, I love it.

u/The_Flying_Dustbin · 1 pointr/flashlight

Oh. Well, you might like the Streamlight Stylus or ProTac.

u/Chasethelogic · 0 pointsr/EDC

This is the one that I have. It fits perfectly in my pocket, it's very easy to use, it doesn't come on by itself very easily, it's flipping bright, and it's quite affordable. Just my recommendation
