Princeton Tec brings an interesting short distance illumination package with the fairly new MPLS (MODULAR PERSONAL LIGHTING SYSTEM). As the name hints, it is more modular than most lights and as a definite bonus is generally low profile and light weight. Rather than having some fancy rotation system on the mount, someone over there was smart enough to just slap an LED on a gooseneck. This lets the operator easily change the pointed direction freely where many helmet lights are stuck in one position or limited to one axis of rotation. A slight down side to the gooseneck is that the pointed direction can be knocked out of place by slings or bumping into one's environment. Fortunately the light won't be knocked off the mount and it is easy to fix the direction right back in place.
