EDC Lighting Tools: Flashlights For Everyday Carry

Check out the latest EDC lighting tools featured in EDC Buyer’s Guide Winter, 2020. Whether you’ve dropped your phone in a darkened movie theater or are trying to find a way out of an unlit alleyway in the dead of night, flashlights of any size will be a welcome tool to employ. Situations like this, and many others, are why a compact flashlight should be a part of everyone’s EDC kit.

In this edition of Illuminated, we look at keychain-borne mini flashlights. They are unobtrusive when hanging on your keys but can give you just enough light when you need it the most. Be prepared for any eventuality with one or more of these handy flashlights.
