Looking for 3" Shallow recessed remodel light kit recommendation (LED option)

I want to install 3" recessed lighting (potentially 4") in the bedroom. Maybe 6 lights. I am looking for LED or MR16 (with LED bulb) line voltage. While I have 16" ceiling trusses, I am trying to go with a shallow model as I want to make sure not to have placement issues with ducts in the ceiling.

I am looking for a complete kit. I would prefer a product line that also has gimbals.
It seems that many manufactures still offer the classic can and trim combinations, which can get expensive. Also, it seems that a LED light would need much less can height due to less heat. Or no can at all. On the extreme side I found LED discs that are maybe 3/4" high for 12V (no gimbal).

I wonder if anyone can offer some recommendation or advice on this topic.

Have you considered;H36ICAT for the housings?

Possibly 3009 Adjustable Gimbal - 35 Tilt for the lamps. I know they are GU10's, but you may search for what you need specifically.

I was hoping to get a complete kit. For example:
BAZZ Flex 300 Series 3 in. Matte White LED Recessed Complete Kit Fixture-300D1L5W - The Home Depot

It seems the classic brands don't offer something like this. Their LED lights still look like incandescent area lights. I figured that the LED (and power supply) doesn't generate much heat. Thus, the design could be more compact. However, I am not sure if I am comfortable with the brands like BAZZ. No idea who makes them..

Or maybe something like this:
Montagetipps LED Einbauleuchten
If they sold in the US and have 7W or9W.

Interesting.... I've never heard of the Bazz fixtures. It would appear that the Depot is their primary sales outlet but they are not stocked in the stores..... available online only.

The H36ICAT fixtures need to be installed from above.

Do you have access in the attic or do you plan on installing from below ?
