Do you EDC a flashlight? I admit that I don’t, though there are multiple ones in my go bags, glove boxes (with strobes), and fishing gear. Fact is, I am almost never out after dark anymore. I sometimes fish until after dark, but not often. When I do I can usually make it back to the truck just fine, but I carry an LED headlamp in my sling-pack just in case or for signaling.
If I could find the right combination of power, size, and usefulness I would probably consider adding it to my EDC gear. I just haven’t yet and with little need beyond what I can meet with my phone in rare instances, I haven’t been highly motivated.
