EDC: Streamlight Microstream

Posted on: May 5th, 2014 by admin No Comments



EDC: I am continuously working to prioritize and minimize the gear I EDC. Last November some friends recommended the Streamlight Microstream. This is a ~30 lumen micro led light with throw out to 38m according to manufacturer specs. I have utilized this small light more than any other light I own. Am I advocating this light for “Tactical” applications? No. However, for the environments in which I travel and my personal defense profile this light is extremely viable. My primary goals for a white light include: 1) Navigation (90+% of its usage) 2) Location or searching 3) Challenge of an unknown contact and possible force multiplier. This light accomplishes these goals with the exception of force multiplier. This light run by (1) AAA battery allows me at 7+ yards to easily visualize people and objects. The on/off pressure tailcap works just like my tactical handheld and the small size allows me to carry this everywhere everyday no matter what I am wearing. A larger, tactical light can be very cumbersome depending on the environment and how you dress. I still EDC a tactical light however that light is kept off-body in a coat pocket or daily carry backpack. Just something to consider if you require or desire a minimalist approach to EDC.
