Calling owners of "on the road m3"

Having ordered one of these lights from gear best I am just interested to know if the clip can be turned to allow for head down carry. I have just watched a video review of the Olight S1r and the clip allows for head up or down carry.

Thanks in advance

Yep, and when you’re not using it just stick it to your fridge via the magnet in the tail cap.

I think the light is too small to use a clip. Same with the S1, and any other small lights. These lights sit so high up in your pocket when clipped, always afraid the light will pop out of my pocket when sitting down.

The S1 series sit even with the edge of the pocket when fully clipped in.

Yes, but the light is still clipped in sitting at the top of your pocket instead of the bottom of your pocket where it can’t come out. Just a personal preference why I don’t use clips on these tiny lights. No big deal Smile
