Over at his everydaycarry.com profile page, SoCalEDC calls himself a “problem solver.” The problem his loadout solves . . .
how to carry the absolute minimum of stuff. SCEDC solved it by opting for a teeny weeny little light: the Olight S1 Baton Cree Xm-l2 Cw LED 500 Lumens Waterproof Flashlight with Olight Rcr123a Battery and Battery Charger and SKYBEN Holster. And a Kershaw Link 1776 knife.
Right answer? What’s more important for self-defense: a “proper” (i.e. larger) flashlight or a proper (i.e. not a penknife) blade? [Note: you might want to click here and read Jeff Gonzales’ flashlight defense posts first.]
Which of the two is more likely to see everyday use? Which one would you carry if you could/do only carry one? Click on the box below to see just how many people carry a flashlight. More than you’d imagine, I’d wager.
