SureFire plans to ship their 500 lumen Y300 Ultra light (based off of their X300 light), which is unique in that it can be attached to a MOLLE rig, a 1913 Pic rail, a hat, or a wristband. It has adapters to accomodate each of these situations (except for the wristband, but you can use your own nylon wristband). The wristband is interesting if you want to attach the Y300 to your support arm wrist while using your pistol, rifle, or shotgun.
There is a dual-output ambidextrous toggle on the rear which allows the user to alternate between 15 and 500 lumens. They are advertising the Y300 not only as a tactical light, but also as a great EDC option. Availability is planned for Summer 2013.
