Coast FL60 LED Headlamp Review

I was an instant fan of Coast products the day I turned on a Coast HP314 LED flashlight and held the smooth, hotspot-free beam on the wall—all 1130 lumens of it. Then I experienced the run-time and the generally solid build quality. I appreciate companies that do a few things well, and Coast doesn’t complicate things […]

Coast LK375 Deployed

Coast LK375 Light Knife Review

It’s a knife. It’s an LED flashlight. It’s the Coast LK375, and a lot of people still aren’t quite sure what to make of it yet. I’ve seen complaints that it’s too bulky and that there’s no need to combine these two products. Well, I’m not sure that there was ever a need to combine screwdrivers, […]

That’s all changed with the introduction of three new rechargeable Coast flashlights, including the A25R, A22R and A9R. All three flashlights have high quality stainless steel shells and are easy to clean. As a bonus, the  A25R […]

This might be the second brightest light you ever see that isn’t a laser or the sun… Coast just announced its latest HP-series flashlight, the HP314. This new professional-grade flashlight isn’t for the faint-hearted, however as it uses 4 D-cell batteries and puts out an astounding 1132 lumens. For perspective, that’s considerably more than most […]

Coast HL8 LED Headlamp Preview

Coast HL8 LED Headlamp Preview

When I go camping, which I love to do, I notice that some people bring a gun. Others, CS gas or some other bear-deterrent. Me? I like to bring along my brightest headlamp, previously the HP7 flashlight by Coast (which is in the family of the HL7 Headlamp in terms of features). But now, Coast has upped the output of its newest headlamp, the HL8, to over 300 lumens. I guarantee you shine that into the face of anything and you will put it down long enough to at least get a head start running… and as the saying goes, you don’t have to be the fastest runner, just faster than the slowest guy in your group. In any case, the HL8 is a high-powered LED headlamp designed for industrial applications and professional-level outdoor use. They don’t mention bear-attack prevention, but we’re going to add it to the list anyway. This light is BRIGHT.
