Good recessed lights

Looking to buy a dozen recessed lights for my basement project,I could probably get away with non-IC fixtures,but will get IC rated anyway.

Willing to go $30-40 per fixture,needs to have adjustable depth as I will be installing furring strips on the joisting to drywall the ceiling.

Want a decent trim kit so the rings don't yellow over time.

Thanks for everyones input,and have a safe New Year.

IC not needed in an uninsulated space. Most new construction have 1/2 space for drywall. Consider remodeling fixtures, they always fit flush regardless of ceiling thickness.

I look for made in USA fixtures, but hard to find any.

I like the Progress P87 series.
