YBLTV Review: Coast FL75R Headlamp
The importance of a powerful, long-lasting light while out in the wilderness cannot be overstated. The simple-to-use Coast FL75R Headlamp I received to review provides any outdoorsman with everything he or she would need in a headlamp.
“Coast’s FL75R Rechargeable Headlamp is a comfortable, long-lasting headlamp capable of even providing self-defense,” – William Fraser, YBLTV Writer / Reviewer
With 11 hours of battery life on its lowest brightness, you never have to worry about it quitting on you when you need it most. More surprisingly, the headlamp has 2.25 hours of battery life on full brightness, which equates to 530 lumens, more than enough to temporarily blind someone or something for several minutes. This leads to the apparent value of this product as a form of self-defense against any intruders or wild animals.
The beam is adjustable, meaning it can provide a wide reaching light source in the immediate area or illuminate a single spot up to 767 feet away at its brightest and finest focus.
The headlamp is equipped with a red light to preserve night-vision and an adjustable elastic headband to fit any size noggin. Operating on either alkaline batteries or its rechargeable battery, the headlamp comes with AC and DC adapters and a USB cable for charging, as well as fasteners to clip the light to your jacket or backpack. The best part is that at only 3.2 ounces, it is not cumbersome or overly noticeable to wear on your head.
The price is a little steep at $105, a $45 difference from the non-rechargeable version. However, you definitely receive the quality of a Coast product: a comfortable, long-lasting headlamp capable of even providing self-defense.
