    Details

    Guys named Fred are always the peace-keeping type.

    Princeton Tec's Fuel headlamp has been a staple in the headlamp world for years. The Fred takes the Fuel to the next level by replacing one of the white LED's with a more camp-friendly red LED, so you don't get in another fist fight this summer because you blinded a fellow camper.

    Fred Lamp

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This is a good headlamp for the price. It is very bright and is all LEDs. I think I owned the older version because the colors are a bit different. Anyway, it is very durable and bright. All that you really need in a headlamp. The elastic in the headband lasted incredibly longer than I thought. So, I think its a good buy. I'd buy it again.

    From the lab: PTec - FRED Headlamp

    FRED puts out 45 lumens in a flood beam via three Ultrabright LEDs. The fourth LED, a red Ultrabright, helps you keep a low profile and preserve your night adjusted vision. The FRED headlamp is stable with its asymmetrical single arm bracket; the large power button is easy to find even while wearing gloves. FRED runs for up to 145 hours in white mode and 180 hours in red mode on three AAA batteries.
