LED Headlamp/Flashlight

The best LED flashlight/headlamp I've found for boating at night is the Photon Freedom Fusion. Click the link and scroll down for full information. Notably:
  • Red as primary or secondary color
  • Full range dimmer
  • AA (not AAA) batteries
  • Safety beacon modes
  • Water resistant
  • Rugged
  • Headlamp or flashlight
  • Constant brightness
UPDATE: I've now learned that red color doesn't really preserve night vision -- what matters is (low) light intensity, not color (see Night Vision, The Red Myth), but the Photon Freedom Fusion (White) is still a good choice, because it's fully dimmable.
