To Clip, or Not to Clip…

Recently, I’ve changed how I carry and conceal my EDC flashlight, and I thought I might explain how and why. When I first purchased my Streamlight ProTac 1L, I really liked that it was small enough that it virtually disappeared when clipped in my pocket and didn’t interfere with my overall EDC system.
