I would carry it clipped in the pocket of the dockers, the area where it was clipped would become a little lighter and wear on the seam. When carried loose in the pocket it wouldn't wear anything at all. When carried clipped in jeans it would wear, but no faster then anything else I carried would. With the dockers though I usually never carried a knife clipped very long (as it would be frowned upon if seen), but the light was okay since I did stage work so I carried it that way often. So I guess I didn't really have equel time to do a good comparison either.

Note however that these lights are substaintally larger than the E2e and the poster was originally looking at a 1x123A cell sized light.


Yes, for EDC use, pocketability means everything to me. I always carry a laptop bag or a murse (= man purse), which contain random gear, but my EDC stuff goes directly in a pants pocket and is always with me.

So, getting the 2x123A E2e was something of stretch, but it's only an inch longer than my current Nuwai Q3, and it's so damn bright, I'll need sunglasses! <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

What about the Streamlight TL Xenon light? Everybody seems to be hooked on the Surefire lights, but they are so expensive -- anybody carry any Streamlights?

Cheaper Than Dirt apparently sold out of this light on the link I posted. There is another priced at $7. They claim light is marked down due to mislabeling on package. <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
The link is:

Oh, I'm on a budget in theory. I'm just not very good at sticking to it.

I have an “older” SurFire G2. I have heard rumors of the G2 having a lockout cap. It is not listed on the SureFire web site or on any packages I have seen so far. How can you identify the new lockout cap while the light is still in the package? I might buy a new G2 if it had the lockout cap. Now if I could only find a pocket clip for one!

Check this thread for details on telling if a package has the LOTC. I thought I also saw that the LOTC is slightly longer than the normal tailcap, but I couldn't find the reference.

I have an Orb Raw on order, primarily as a toy because of its 12-minute battery life. However, I am wondering whether it might in fact be worth having in a smokey disaster. It's certainly bright, and 12 minutes might be enough to get out of the smoke. (I also carry a Photon Freedom, which would be fine if there's no smoke.)

I haven't been following the Orb stuff, so I can't directly comment, but I think carrying something as large as that for such a limited runtime and for such a narrow purpose isn't optimal considering we can only carry so much. I think you'd be much better off with a SF E2e or E1e which have much more generic applications.

I bought my G2 a little over a year ago and it doesn't have a lockout tailcap. Sure would be a nice feature if they are incorporating it!
