    Longest run-on sentence ever.

    I have a Little Ed on the coat, as well as a garrity on the lid.

    Default cheap & functional

    I carry a Garrity on my lid with rubber band mounting kit...

    It proved it's durability yesterday. It fell off of my lid and bounced off the road after a car fire. I then proceeded to step on it (nice, eh?). When I picked it up, it was almost completely split in half. I gave it a nice whack to pop it back together, and it works like a charm.

    It's also nice that if it would have stopped working, I'd only be out about 3 bucks! I do want to add another small lights to my jacket pocket though. Any recommendations on a good smoke cutting light?

    Fenix P3D. 160 lumens in less then the size of a mini mag.BTW those who think led are not as bright as incans need to be brought up to speed . The new leds and the Cree ones like in the Fenix are blinding.Mine is several times brighter then a full size maglite. Mags btw are looked at like a model T would be on todays roads.

    I always carry a back up because one is none and two is one .

    Also great for ems, inspecting etc. no need to lug some big heavy out dated thing around.

    Heres a good start for those who are interested. www.candlepowerforums.com
