Great light!  That's one of the many I always wanted to buy but just never got around to it.  As I recall, it was the unique UI that always tempted me.

Me too. Although for me I wanted it since it had my name on it!  :P

It was a gift and one I liked too much to risk it at work.  I still feel like that but I hate seeing it sitting there as a backup.  It's too nice a light to leave behind.

I'm sure the member who gave it to me would prefer to see it being used on a daily basis rather than sitting in a box somewhere despite the risk!

Yes, of course...  There are a bunch of Surefire models with your name on them too.  Be sure to get each of those.  :D

Agreed.  Life is too short to leave the good tools on the shelf.  :tu:

So much for variety!  :twak:

Well that only says you found a good setup. :cheers:

Or maybe you should make a wheal of fortune kind of rack (horizontal one though) and just spinn it in the morning to decide which one gets carried that day. :P

I knew I'd be coming home before dark so I only had the Quantum D2 on my keyring on me. There is always a Quark AA^2 in my trunk though. :D

Indeed, but how boring is that?

What it really comes down to is what I'm wearing...  Friday is the only day I can wear jeans to work, and the Quark AA Tac is my preferred jeans-carry.  The rest of the week I mix it up quite a bit.

No worries though...  Next week I'll have some new stuff to show, including one engraved with "V54".  ;)

It looks like that switch activates an AC outlet.  That is how AC outlets are shaped in North America.

Def, does your Jeep have a built-in DC>AC inverter?

not that cheap for what it is, but bought a LED Lenser A3 as a handy little light that takes a single "get em anywhere" AAA cell.



and they do make nice looking lights...

Thanks!  I like to carry the Skeletool on "minimalist" days.  I find that it's not a tool that is really great at anything, but it is handy for a number of tasks, has a stout blade and is easy to carry.
