Professional firefighter and fireblog.com blogger Mike Morales recently reviewed two COAST Products: the 3.0 version of our Rapid Response Knife and the HP14 professional use LED flashlight. He gave both items a positive review, but it was the HP14 that really won him over. “I love this flashlight,” he said.
Morales appreciates the ergonomic aspects of this torch, including its textured stock, handy weight and heavy-duty protective sheath with belt loop. He found the HP14 to be durable and “unbreakable, as advertised.”
This professional use LED flashlight offers several flexible light settings – something Morales, a retired fire chief, really values. He points out the “slide focus that allows you to refine or intensify the beam” and says the “dim to bright option” is a “further bonus.”
Morales summarizes, “I am thrilled to own my HP14” and comments that, in addition to professional firefighting usage, he could see keeping one of these flashlights in his bag and another on the nightstand.
Morales’ take on the 3.0 Rapid Response Knife was also positive. He reports that, once he got the hang of using the flip opener, “the knife operated smoothly with one flip of the thumb.” He also appreciates the textured handle, allowing for a “firm grip.” The built-in belt clip is a nice touch, he also notes. Overall, he describes the latest version of the Rapid Response Knife as “compact, intuitively engineered, and built for duty.”
