I always carry a flashlight. Sometimes more than one (What happens if I drop my flashlight in the dark?). I also like the little Tracer glow rings that are hard to get here in the states, as it makes digging keys out of a bag or the grass a snap.

The length needs to be brought down to something smaller (I can manage with the QT2A-X’s size, and for prolonged use it’s actually pretty comfortable, but at 5.8 inches I have to use the pocket clip, as it won’t sit right in my pocket unless it is clipped to it. On that note, with the standard pocket clip it rides a wee bit too high to be comfortable when I am sitting and standing frequently (I am constantly getting up and sitting back down in my job, so this became apparent pretty rapidly).

So how do we make it better?
