What I carry everyday. Left to right

Editor’s Note: Neat little setup here. Nice minimalism and I like the DIY effort you’ve put into your carry to make it unique and even more practical. Just look at that awesome F-701 mod! It looks like you’ve replaced the tailcap with a bit driver and repositioned the clip at the other end. It’s a pretty clever idea — that way you can get added functionality of two drivers and with the repositioned clip you don’t have to worry about accidental leaks in your pocket (which I can’t imagine happening wih the F701 considering how robust it is!). I just imagine that actually using the driver installed into the retractable tailcap might be an issue… Anyway, nice watch and great choice of the Manager on your keychain. I’ve got one too! I would suggest maybe just adding a small keychain light considering you’ve got some space on your keyring. Using a McGizmo clip with it like you do with your SAK you can keep it modular for when you do want to carry a light.

Overall, good carry, great mod too. Thanks for sharing!

Olight S Mini Baton

Sometimes, to make something even greater, you have to make it smaller. The Olight S1 Baton is still one of the best everyday carry lights around, but even great things can be improved. As you can see with the new S Mini Baton, small improvements can make the biggest difference.

At first glance, you might say the S Mini looks just like an S1 that got a haircut (and you'd be right). The S Mini is 0.25” shorter than its predecessor, which also makes it lighter at 1.11 oz (from 1.6 oz).

Smaller and lighter doesn't mean less powerful, however, as the S Mini improves on the S1 in both output and runtime. Now it can put out a maximum of 550 lumens, along with four levels and a runtime of up to 30 days.

And it doesn't fix what isn't broken, either. The S Mini still makes use of a CR123A battery and floody TIR optics, retains an IPX8 water resistance rating, and comes with a clip for ease of everyday carry. There's also something for the collectors, as the light comes in six finishes of exotic materials, from rainbow anodized titanium to red copper.

The biggest surprises can come from the smallest packages. Pick up the next generation of the Baton in your choice of finish from the Amazon link below. Just try not to lose it, OK?
