The Princeton Tec Fred combines ergonomic design, reliable function, and light weight to make one great headlamp. The red LED helps preserve night adjusted vision while still adequately illuminating a campsite, gear bag, or task at hand. A hold of the large push button switches to three Ultrabright white LEDs that provide a flood beam; each color has a high and low mode.

FEX Gear's Take
Any Marine or GI worth his salt knows that white light kills night vision. This headlamp is designed with the warfighter in mind, as its first mode is automatically a red LED. Princeton Tec's Fred provides durability, brightness, and comfort all at an extremely affordable cost.
