The website and magazine, 50 Campfires pays homage to an age-old, American tradition: camping. It’s a one-stop-shop for people who want information on how to camp, where to camp, what to eat and what to pack. The information is actionable and realistic, opposed to other sites which offer lavish recommendations, that most people won’t do, let alone can afford. You won’t find those things here; the homepage is populated with seasonal articles, tips and recipes that will make your mouth water.
The only thing that yields more pressure than Christmas shopping is shopping for Valentine’s Day. You want to choose just the right gift, but do you choose a practical or fun gift? Why not both! Let COAST help you take a load off by listing some products we know are sure to put a smile on your loved ones face. And remember, all of these products are backed with a COAST lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. It doesn’t get much better than that!
With a 95 year history of making high quality knives and a 25 year history in high performance LED light technology, it only makes sense that the team at COAST would combine their two core product groups in to one technologically advancedproduct, the LK375.

This gives you two superior, professional products in one.
“I’ve been following knife trends in the world markets for over 35 years and knew there was nothing being offered except very “low-output” LED’s that were incorporated into the frame of folding and fixed blade knives. Because of this, the market was wide-open for a high-powered flashlight to be incorporated into a knife,” says Doug Hutchens, COAST’s Knife Category Manager.

In light of the recent winter storms that have transpired across the U.S., we wanted to deliver a list of supplies and tips to ensure you’re properly equipped for the next storm.
