Are you tired of the bulk and unnecessary complexity of most headlamps? Check this out. The Fred from Princeton Tec is exactly what most people really need in a high-quality package with a reasonable price.

A special point of interest is the slick shape and small size, which seems like a slightly flattened medium-sized egg. Everything is integrated, so you don't have separate battery cases and wiring flinging about. The Fred can really be carried in a pocket without noticing.

Made in USA.

Functions and features

Fred stands out from the masses because it's so simple. You don't really need a hundred brightness, color, and strobe settings behind complex Konami codes of pressing buttons for so and so long.

The battery case is opened with the tip of a knife, a small coin, or something. The slide-buckle of the headband just so happens to have a suitable tab on it, so you never need to look for a tool.

To attach the light to a shoulder strap or any 25 mm (1") webbing as found on MOLLE gear, just weave the band off the split bars and go nuts.

Basic features

  • Four modes
  • Low Red always comes on first
  • Small size and streamlined form
  • Easy adjustment up and down by one hand
  • Adjustable elastic headband
  • Can be attached to any 25 mm (1") webbing

Button functions

  1. A single press turns the light on in Low Red
  2. A second press boosts power
  3. A third press turns the light off
  4. When the light is on, a longer press activates the 200 lm flood light
  5. Press and hold to dim the flood light
  6. A single press turns the flood light off.

To go through your backpack, read a map or check the trail immediately before your eyes, a low red setting is best, so it's the primary mode. There's no "previous mode memory", so the functions are always the same and you get used to them quickly.

Excellent headlamp. Small, solid and really easy to use. Been using this for days at a time in the damp cold forest during military exercises and and no issues what so ever. The maximum brightness setting is perhaps not as bright as on some of the competitors, but for military/camping use this is not really an issue at all.

Tosi hyvä otsalamppu! Paitsi, ikävä kyllä, ei vesitiiveytensä puolesta, IPX4 roiskevesitiiveys ei vaan riitä. Tai, ainakin epäilen elektroniikan kastumista syyksi, että omani suht vähän käytetty sekosi kastuttuaan lumipyryssä (eikä esim uidessa). Lamppu vilkutteli ihan omiaan, eikä kytkimen painaminen auttanut - aika monta painallusta tarvittiin ennen kuin suostui sammumaan.

Halvoista ja muuten paljon huonommista lampuistakin saattaa löytyä patterikotelon tiivistävä O-rengas, tästä ei. Höh.

Pahuksen näpäkkä pikku fikkari. Ensimmäinen tapaamani otsavalo joka sopii oikeasti hämärähommiin. Moni taktikaaliseksikin itseään kehuva lamppu aloittaa moodisyklin sieltä supertehokkaimmasta päästä, mutta Fredi on siitä fiksu että ekana tulee vain punaista valoa ja sitäkin laihialaisen nuukasti. Lisää tehoa ja valkeutta irtoaa nopeasti tarvittaessa. Mitä ulkokuoreen tulee, Lekan kuvailu "hämmästyttävän pieni ja kiva muotoilu" pitää hyvin kutinsa, meinasi nimittäin mennä jo toinen kappale tilaukseen kun ensimmäinen katosi repun syövereihin kuukausiksi. Muiden arvioissa parjattu vedenkestävyys on itsellä riittänyt tihku- ja kuurosateessa, tosin usien hatunlippa on antanut lisäsuojaa. Etenkin kuivan kelin oloihin ja sisähommiin vahva suositus.
