There are a variety of different items used in every day carry, from compact handguns to knives. Yet, what if you find yourself in need of a small flashlight as well? 5.11 now offers just such a light tailored to the needs of every day carry with the EDC K-USB keychain flashlight. The EDC K-USB offers 150 lumens out of a pocket light that easily fits in the palm, thanks to the inclusion of a Cree XP-G3 LED head. Its body is made of aluminum, with a Type III hard anodized finish similar to other daily-carry lights on the market. The aluminum construction results in a durable light, and it has a drop -test rating of one meter.

It is also IP54 dust and water-resistant rated, allowing it to function in every day use and even in adverse conditions. The light has a run time of approximately an hour and 30 minutes on a single charge. One of the most notable features of this light is its simple recharging capability. Compatible with USB C chargers, the light can simply be plugged in and left until fully charged. The inclusion of a LED battery status bar built into the housing also allows the user to keep tabs on battery life. It has a retail price of $30. For more information on the 5.11 EDC K-USB, visit
