Waterproof flashlights/headlamps

Looking at getting LED waterproof dependable flashlight for overnight camping.
I have a couple of headlamps but they are not waterproof. Recommendations?

BD Revolt. It's not submersible, but is rechargable. Mine has held up very well!

if you do not mind only 160 lumens (this year the new bd storm is 200, 80 meter range) and a 70 meter range, the storm is being clearanced at rei for 34 instead of 50 for the newer one. I just grabbed one while shopping for other stuff.

Many (but not all) of the Princeton Tec line is waterproof. I've been very happy with the ones I own - the Vizz and the EOS.

Fenix PD35, 960 lumens, IPX-8 waterproof to 2m. They aren't cheap, but they're bright enough on the high setting to kill bugs that get too close. And they have a strobe setting that just might give you a seizure

Thanks for the info everybody. I went with the Princeton Tec Apex. They make several different lumens and colors in that model. I got the 350 lumens in orange, figured I would be less likely to lose it in an orange color. And it uses AA batteries which is what I use and carry for everything else like my handheld GPS.
