That's a refillable butane lighter. It's made by Solo. It has a nice strong jet flame, good in windy conditions, and it has a little heft to it, because of the metal case. It's been dropped plenty of times and still works! A couple other nice features are the mirror inside the cap (small, but, it would attract attention) and a compass on top. (Again, just a small button compass, but it is liquid filled and surprisingly accurate.)

I think I bought it at West Marine actually, a few years ago. Wind is a big problem on boats, I bought it for fusing the ends of lines when doing splicing on the boat, but, it has become a regular item for me now, rather than just on the boat.

Here's the latest. I don't carry both the Benchmade 707 and Charge Ti at the same time.

I carry a .32 Seacamp semi auto in my rear pocket in a small leather, suede side out holster to hide the profile. I have a CC permit. Plus wallet, knife, leatherman, mini bic lighter, pen and paper, and sometimes a mini first aid kit, but not religiiously.

My Seacamp might sometimes, rarely, be swapped out with a .38 snub revolver, but so much more conspicuous, and uncomfortable that I prefer the .32 and it has never been needed, nor noticed, but has been a source of great comfort on just a few occasions.

The .32 colt hammerless that I occasionaly carry is great at 15 feet or less and is comfortable to carry in my back pocket. It makes a great secondary (hidey) gun as well, in the field.

Is that the Strider SMF folder? If so, is it worth the price tag?

EDIT: never mind, I saw the rest of the threads on it.

I have an OMC (pre-AMT) .380 Backup that I have carried in a hip pocket holster off and on for years. I like it just fine, but it is a single action semi-auto, I have always been interested in the Seacamp for its size and action...

Just drop it to one of your pockets. It's already in rugged, dust and water resistant container. smile
A little better option is to attach a piece of elastic band in some rarely occupied spot in your pocket to eliminate bulk. The very nice spot (Ok, - for me) in the jeans-like pants is the space near the fly, at the very top spot of the pocket. A lighter, battery, or something like that - wouldn't be noticeable, not from inside, not from outside. It's not that much of a work to upgrade most of you outdoor clothes this way.

By the way, I'm carrying my EDC in the Scott eVest Tactical System 4.0 fleece jacket (in Vest configuration). Check it out - a lot of innovative clothing modification ideas for us: http://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/40_Tactical_System.shtml

I love it. Perfect for every day carry, not overly accurate beyond 20 feet, no sigts to snag on clothing. A little picky on the ammo it likes, but there are a lot more options available now. When I got mine, almost 10 years ago, silver tips were about it, and it likes em. Well made, and easy to conceal.
