Finding your perfect EDC

No doubt at some point during your professional ventures – or even personal for that matter - you have found yourself in a situation where you wish you had a flashlight on you, and that’s where Streamlight’s everyday carry lights come in. They are always there when you need them most. As such, here are some of Streamlight’s top EDCs

Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting devices, offers a range of high-quality products built with precision and performance, especially for law enforcement, military and outdoor enthusiasts. From the beginning, the company has been defined by their innovation, delivering effective, efficient lighting solutions featuring the latest technology, unmatched performance, durability and incredible value. 

Wedge® XT

Streamlight’s brand new USB-C rechargeable ultra-compact Wedge® XT, is the latest in its line of high-performance everyday carry lights. This pocket-sized option delivers up to 500 lumens for two hours on high, and measures just 10.8cm! The new light features a flat, low-profile design that allows for concealed carry in either pocket and a tactical push-button tail switch for easy, one-handed use. 

“Like the popular Wedge® EDC light, the unique, ergonomic design of the Wedge XT makes it the perfect concealed carry light for patrol duty, tactical manoeuvres, and automotive, industrial, or DIY uses,” said Michael F. Dineen, Streamlight’s Chief Revenue Officer. “It’s also perfect for outdoor uses, including hunting, camping, boating, or just about any activity where you need a dependable light on hand for instant, bright illumination.

The Wedge XT balances durability with performance, made from rugged machined aluminium. The new light features an intuitive tail switch that provides tactile control over the light’s momentary or constant-on operation, and a FIVE-TAP™ lockout feature of the switch also prevents the light from turning on inside a pocket or bag. A sturdy pocket clip provides comfortable deep pocket carry.   

MacroStream® USB

Similarly, to the Wedge XT, being a pocket-sized option, the MacroStream® USB is ideal for everyday carry because it is portable and powerful. The MacroStream USB offers up to 500 lumens, a 90-metre beam, and 2 hours of run time – more than enough power to find your way in the dark. It is also USB-C rechargeable, making it a great grab-and-go option. 

“The MacroStream® USB is small enough for everyday carry, yet packs a punch with its lumen output and convenient USB charging,” said Streamlight’s Chief Revenue Office, Michael F. Dineen. “It’s the ideal pocket or cap light, whether for patrol duty or tactical maneuvers, outdoor uses, or automotive, industrial, and DIY jobs.”   

ProTac® 1L-1AA

The ProTac® 1L-1AA is another great everyday carry light. This multi-fuel, ultra-compact flashlight accepts a single lithium or alkaline battery, providing you with ultimate flexibility in the field. It is packaged with a removable pocket clip and holster and is IPX7 waterproof to one metre for 30 minutes, 

Two-metre impact resistance tested, and the TEN-TAP® programmable switch allows user selection of one of three different programs.

Other features include an anti-roll head and a removable and reversible pocket clip that attaches to things like visors for hands-free use. It also has a multi-functional push-button tail switch, dual fuel use, a durable anodised machined aircraft aluminium construction, and an impact-resistant lens.

ProTac® HL-X USB

You may want to consider also carrying at least one larger flashlight with a strobe feature, like the ProTac HL-X USB. This light will illuminate a larger area when needed or when application calls for it. It offers up to 1,000 lumens and a 330-metre beam. It also has three brightness modes and comes as a complete rechargeable system with Streamlight’s SL-B26 protected Li-Ion USB rechargeable battery pack with an integrated micro USB port, making it the ultimate light to fit your every need. 

Lighting is all about safety and security. Not only does a good light make you feel safe, but it usually also provides safety to those around you. Streamlight is leading the industry with the greatest variety of professional-grade lights. They are trusted by professionals for a simple reason: they are the best, offering performance and features that professionals need and can depend on. The lights are available in many configurations and are supported by a range of accessories, delivering the right light exactly where it is needed. 

Nowadays, most of us carry a flashlight on us at all times. In fact, the number of people that carry a Streamlight has more than tripled over the past 10 years. The variety of products that Streamlight offers and the quality and durability of their lights means they can provide a reliable option for everyone.
