Comments about Princeton Tec Fred Headlamp:
This is the same format as the Princeton Tec Fuel, but has 1 red LED and 3 white.
I found this headlamp to be perfect for astronomy as well as naked-eye observing, because it turns on in the red mode always, but started using it for everything.
I quickly began to value the red-light on feature (no blinding yourself when you need to fumble for the toilet paper at 3 AM), so much so that I wonder why that sort of thing, or at least turning the light on in low mode, aren't standard...
It does alright for walking around at night on wide paths or well-mainted trails, but if I was to do heavier night hiking I would be taking either a hand-held high-power flashlight or a more powerful headlamp.
It gets 5 stars from me because, frankly, it is perfect for what I use it for, and I don't expect unrealistic things from products.
