Mayflower’s Surefire Helmet Light Harness

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

So you’ve got a Surefire helmet light and you love it but you don’t always wear a helmet. Also, you’ve been thinking how much you’d like your light to do more. Mayflower Consulting thought the same thing and came up with a simple, yet elegant solution to the problem. Their harness is used in concert with the MOLLE adapter holding it firmly in place and allowing the light to tilt like a headlamp. The harness is lightweight and won’t take up much room in your kit. In fact, it can be mounted on the helmet, converting the light for use more like a traditional headlamp.

Very well constructed, the harness is made from mil-spec elastic webbing and the light mount is crafted from a 330D multicam face backed with Coolmax. These materials sandwich a mesh foam padding which works in concert with the Coolmax to mitigate sweat.
