ONE POWERFUL LIGHT. ALWAYS READY. FIT FOR EVERY NEED.
We are proud to introduce PAL, or Portable Adaptive Lighting - a powerful and rugged light that pairs with accessories to deliver illumination wherever its needed. Whether you use it on its own or you pair it with an accessory, PAL is designed to perform among the best in class.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS.
Our modular connection allows for easy one-handed operation - creating the ability to customize your lighting based on your active lifestyle.
The basis for the modular connection is rooted in reliability and utility. We needed to find a way to securely attach the light to an accessory while still maintaining smooth and easy operation.

HERE ARE THE FEATURES.
SMALL BUT POWERFUL.
ACCESSORIES FOR UNLIMITED UTILITY.
By pairing with a suite of compatible accessories, PAL can transform into the perfect light for all of your needs. With accessories that provide access to ambient lighting, task lighting and mobile lighting, we have a solution that will enable you to maximize your time spent outdoors at night.
PAL IN ACTION.
Our patented attachment system uses opposing magnetic poles to seamlessly rotate PAL into a secure mechanical and electrical* connection with its accessories.
DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND.
All personal lighting products are different - different brands, different battery sizes, different applications...and since we all have different needs, we found ourselves with an unnecessary number of personal lighting products.
We were frustrated - and we couldn't find a solution that would provide us with reliable access to light in all conditions...so we set out to develop the perfect light for every application.
After countless hours of design, several prototype iterations, and long debates about user interaction, we developed a simple and intuitive solution - a modular light with the functional utility that allows precise access to light for a limitless number of activities.
PERFECTING A MODULAR LIGHTING SYSTEM AS VERSATILE AS OUR LIVES.
We teamed with the best and brightest designers and engineers to develop a lighting system that could match our needs. We spent countless hours exploring various form factors, connection methods, and user interactions. After relentless iteration and prototyping, we developed a one-handed modular system that is just as relevant in the home as it is in the outdoors.
A CLOSER LOOK.
No more fumbling with a single button - we simplified the interaction with tactile buttons that each serve a purpose.
THE TEAM BEHIND THE DREAM.
We believe that everyone has a duality to their lives - an urban side where we live and work, and a wild side that longs to be outdoors. We strive to help people bridge this gap between urban and wild by enabling them to get out and explore, even after the sun goes down.
Chris and Derek are brothers-in-law with a common passion for travel and adventure, always looking for new experiences and challenges. Though they share numerous interests (including the need for better personal lighting), their backgrounds could not be more different. While Chris was growing up in southern New Mexico, hunting, fishing, and exploring the high desert, Derek was living abroad in Singapore, traveling extensively throughout Asia.
Their varied backgrounds and experiences became the genesis of Thirty Third Parallel’s products and led to the urban / wild brand that they embody. They can’t wait to see how PAL will help you get the most out of the night!
