Princeton Tec Remix Pro MPLS headlamp
The Remix Pro is a headlamp for tactical and military use with red, green and IR in addition to bright white LEDs. Clip it on your helmet for easy and secure mounting, or use a headstrap when wearing a soft cap. Also hooks onto any 25 mm (1") webbing, as found on MOLLE gear.
A special point of interest is the small size, which is a bit like a slightly flattened large egg. Everything is included, so you don't have separate battery cases and wiring flinging about. The only button you need to press is slightly recessed and large, so it's easy to find and use.
MPLS means that a bunch of attaching adapters are included.
Functions and features
The Remix PRO can be switched between IR and regular mode with a solid switch on the side. The position can be felt and it takes a deliberate push to turn. A bright white light is available in either mode with a long press of the button.
The light always turns on in low red mode to avoid giving away your position or blasting your adjustment to darkness, and turns off with a single press without cycling through all the different modes.
The battery case is opened with bare fingers or anything you can wedge in between. To attach the light to a shoulder strap or any 25 mm (1") webbing as found on MOLLE gear, just weave the band off the split-bars and go nuts.
- Five modes
- Low red always comes on first
- Easy adjustment up and down by one hand
- Adjustable elastic headband
- Can be attached to 25 mm (1") webbing or NVG helmet mount
Even if you're a mouth-breather and your lips move when you read, you'll do fine with this torch.
- A single press always turns the light on or off
- A quick follow-up press changes colour
- A longer press switches colour, whether the light is on or off
- When white light is turned on with a long press, a quick follow-up press boosts power
To go through your backpack, read a map or check the trail immediately before your eyes, a low red setting is best, so it's the primary mode. There's no "previous mode memory", so the functions are always the same and you get used to them quickly.
