Made in the U.S.A., the Princeton Tec Axis rechargeable, 450-lumen LED headlamp covers the bases with all the features you want from a headlamp and then some.
The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you a burn time of up to 15 hours. And the flood beam and spot beam options plus red LED provide specific lighting for different camp tasks with a push of the button.
The one unique innovation that I really liked is the addition of a dial to more easily control the brightness of both light modes.
MSRP: $59.99. Princetontec.com
