COAST is a 2013 Home Improvement Executive Innovation Award Winner! Home Improvement Executive (HIE) is an exclusive publication that caters to industry leaders in the home space. Each year, HIE names innovation award winners in a variety of categories. We are thrilled to announce that two of Coast’s products, the HL27 and the HL8, were awarded Gold Innovation Awards in the LED headlamp category.
The COAST HL27 LED Headlamp
The Coast HL27 headlamp is lightweight, easy to operate, and versatile. With just 3 AA batteries, this headlamp delivers 309 lumens, with a maximum run time of 3 hours and 45 minutes. The HL27’s easy-twist focusing ring makes it a snap to toggle between settings, even with gloves on. The focus adjusts between an Ultra-View Flood Beam, to illuminate a large area with scattered light, or a Bulls-Eye Spot Beam, which can blast light as far as 400 feet while still providing a halo of enhanced vision. One of the most innovative aspects of this LED headlamp: its removable top strap. Hard hat clips are included to make this headlamp easy to use on the job.
The COAST HL8 LED Headlamp
The HL8 is the most powerful of COAST’s LED headlamps. The HL8 can deliver a tremendous 344 lumens of light and has a runtime of 19 hours, 15 minutes on four AA batteries. Or, if you don’t need constant maximum light, just dial back to the low beam setting of 66 lumens and enjoy an amazingly long run time of 79 hours and 15 minutes. Like the HL27, the HL8 is designed to clip onto a helmet if so desired; helmet clips are included. The Pure Beam Optical System in the HL27 is also in the HL8; the Bulls-Eye Spot Beam on the HL8 can illuminate objects up to 678 feet away! Finally, the HL8 comes with a removable battery pack and its own 3-foot extension cord.
Both of these LED headlamps are backed by COAST’s lifetime guarantee against defects in workmanship and materials. If you’re looking for a cream-of-the-crop LED headlamp, you can’t go wrong with one of these award-winning COAST products.
