I know I can run into EMS and choose from half a dozen good LED headlamps these days, but, since I am not in urgent need but do need to get a new one - which is the best? Ultralightness is not a priority but I want a simple, self-contained unit with an easy on-off and as nice a beam as possible for close work like setting shutters in the dark (so more a flood than a spot).
Are there are switchable red ones to preserve my night vision or is that just BS I picked up somewhere, that red filtered light retains my "tactical advantage"?
Feel free to diverge into flashlights, last week I had a little CR123 Cree in my mouth for hours since the headlamp died. Tasted terrible.
