Product Overview

Tested to be compatible with both REIN 1.0 and 2.0 (and likely 3.0 as well)!

The world's strongest adaptable MLOK weapon light mounting system just got a feisty little brother!

The Baldr REIN retains all the outstanding features of our original Baldr system, and mated it with the world's highest performing weapon light — the Cloud Defensive REIN.  Although touting 1,400 lumens and 60,000 candela of concentrated beam, the REIN remains crippled by the outdated Surefire "Scout" light moutning method.  We are proud to announce you can now get all the potentials out of it, with nothing holding you back!

  • Eliminates the decade-old, tiny, weak aluminum threads used by nearly all traditional MLOK mounts.
    • No more stripped screw sockets!!
    • No more weapon lights walking itself loose under recoil because you forgot to loctite it!!
    • No more snapped off screw heads from corrosion or excessive thread locker!!
  • 50% longer run-time (for the XL body)
    • Over 3 hours of blinding, continous light output per ANSI rating (standard REIN will only last around 2 hours)
    • Nearly 2 additional hours of "emergency output" after initial battery exhaustion, that is sufficient for survival or basic navigation in the dark (yes, the light will stay on for almost 5 hours)
    • Test conducted using KeepPower 5,000mAh 21700 cells vs Surefire 3,500 mAh 18650 cells
  • Engineered for reliability
    • Extremely strong "bolt-through" design is engineered to make sure the light stays where you want it, when you want it.
    • High strength MLOK steel screws and nuts connect the light directly to your rail.  No more tiny screws with just a few aluminum threads to bite into.
    • Unibody design integrates the battery housing, head and tail-cap mounts, and MLOK attachment points into a single piece of aircraft grade aluminum - it may be the most costly to produce, but it will also be the strongest.
    • High-temperature o-rings used throughout.  They cost 5x as much as regular o-rings, but will survive the high-heat generated from REIN heads much better than standard o-rings.
  • "Ambidextrous" mounting.
    • Our Baldr body can be mounted on either side of the weapon, or even upside down, by simply reversing the offset plate – giving you tons of mounting freedom.
    • No need to decide "left hand" or "right hand" version during initial purchase.  Far easier process compare to some of our competitions.
    • Combined with the bolt-through design, we offer the utmost flexibility and make installation and adjustment quick and easy.
  • Providing the most compact and lowest overall weapon profile.
    • No other MLOK mount can come close, because they can never eliminate the inherent thickness of the mount itself.  That's why we throw all that out the window and designed an entire replacement body.
  • Adaptable to nearly all weapon configurations
    • Hybrid kit comes with 5 different "offset plates".
    • Each offset plate incorporates a different "tilt" to position the light as close, or as far, as you wish.
    • Easily adjust for variety of rail profiles, BUIS or aiming laser dictated clearance issues.
    • Available aluminum version of offset plates (optional, sold separately) matches each offset plate's angle, for when you need that ultimate strength during your next deployment
  • Easy upgradability
    • All Baldr offset plates and bodies are interchangable, streamlining upgrades while reducing cost.
  • Proven reliability
    • Originally introduced in early 2019, our Baldr mounting system has been well-proven under real-world challenges.
    • Used by both military and law enforcement worldwide, with perfect service records.
  • Unconditional Guarantee
    • If for any reason our product does not perform to your expectation, we will take it back regardless of the product's condition, and regardless of how long you have owned it.
    • Emphasis: regardless of the product's condition.  If you crush it with an M1 Abram and decided that's not good enough, you can return it.
    • Why?  Because we believe in our product.  But also because we want our users to use, test, and even abuse, our products HARD when you first got it.  We believe that's the only way you can build confidence that our products will continue to perform after years of rugged use.
  • Military-grade manufacturing
    • CNC cut from aerospace-grade aluminum
    • Produced using state-of-the-art, German-made 5-axis CNC milling center
    • Mil-spec anodized for abrasion resistance properties
    • Machined in America, from American-made billets

Included in package:

  • 1x Baldr REIN Micro or XL body
  • 5x Baldr Polymer Offset Plates
  • 2x MLOK Nuts
  • 2x Short MLOK screws
  • 2x Long MLOK screws

Included with REIN bundle (perfect for buidling your own 2-tone kit!):

  • 1x REIN LED Head
  • 1x REIN Tail-Cap
  • 1x REIN Remote LCS (6" cable)
  • 1 Sets REIN Remote LCS Picatinny mounting clamps with hardware

Required Accessories:

  • Compatible battery:
    • Micro will accept most 18350 batteries.  DO NOT USE CR123A!!!
    • XL will accept "standard" 21700 batteries
  • Battery charger
  • Hex driver for MLOK nuts installation
  • Lubricate head and tail-cap o-rings once a year using pure silicon grease

Note: the Baldr REIN XL is NOT compatible with Nitecore or Olight "Intellegent" 21700 batteries.  Those batteries have their negative terminals routed to the top of the cell, and the positive terminals recessed.  Their positive terminals cannot make proper contact with the REIN head.  Fortunately, these cells are also wider than typical 21700 cells, so we designed our body to be JUST big enough for standard 21700 cells, and slightly too small for these incompatible cells.  If the 21700 doesn't fit, chances are it won't work anyway.

The following are batteries we've tested and will work with the Baldr REIN bodies:

  • "Protected" (button-top) KeepPower 18350 cells (available via Amazon), for REIN Micro
  • "Protected" (button-top) KeepPower 21700 cells (available via Amazon), for REIN XL
  • "Protected" (button-top) Orbtronic 21700 cells (available HERE), for REIN XL

Other batteries that meets the following requirements will also work:

  • Physically adhere to 18350 (18mm x 35mm) or 21700 (21mm x 70mm) battery standards
  • Button top
  • Protected cells preferred, with protection circuit NOT exceeding 8mm thick
  • Minimum 3A of continouos (not burst) discharge rate for current generation REIN
  • Preferably 5A or higher (10A ideal) continous discharge rate for future products

Notes about REIN warranty:  Not all companies believe in their products as much as we believe in our own.  IF FOR ANY REASON your REIN failed while being used with our body, and Cloud Defensive refused to warranty it, we will replace your REIN for you for free.  No questions asked.

    Run time is unreal

    Ordered the xl version and 21700 from amazon. For a quick test, I left it running for 3 hours and the light is still super bright. Also this is one of the slickest mount I have seen... My light practically touches the rail. I have not seen any other mount that is anywhere near as low profile. Once I got my second rein I am ordering another one of these. Keep up the good work!

    Excellent product! I didn't realize how much the old "industry standard" light mount could be improved. Does exactly what it says and looks like. This absolutely hugs your rail, which not only reduces the overall profile of the weapon, but improves the balance / perception of weight. A really impressive product, which I learned about through reporting by TFB!
