While I don’t normally carry a backup I have seen many that do. The reason being I don’t have the pocket real estate that is needed to have multiple versions of everything. That is likely to change with Nitecore dropping the new TIP, an ultra light 360-lumen beast that comes in at just under 1oz . There is a lot to love here for those either looking for something small with big power and has the potential to be a great backup option. With decent power, USB recharge and some excellent color options I can easily see this becoming an everyday carry favorite for lots of folks. The details are available here and as usual if you get one let me know, I am curious about its finish/durability.
