Monday, July 12th, 2010

Coast LED lights aren’t only for outdoor enthusiasts, you know. Many law enforcement, military and security officers use LEDs in their everyday work. Here are our Top 3 LED lights for those in law enforcement and security positions.

X21
The X21 has the highest lumen output for any handheld LED light on the market today. Its 1070 lumen output makes it perfect for search-and-rescue crews, military personnel and anyone needing an extremely powerful handheld LED light. What’s more, it boasts a 16-hour battery life. Not too shabby.

“Female Friendly” LED Lighting Products…Seriously?

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

An LED lighting manufacturer is preparing to “unveil female friendly lighting products” at an upcoming home and housewares show in March, according to a recent press release. Female friendly? Gimme a break. If that doesn’t shout, “Women are inferior!”, I don’t know what does.

Apparently, the company’s research shows females are expressing a growing interest in their LED lighting products, so they decided to develop a new line of products that cater to women. I’ll stop here and say, kudos — they’re analyzing the numbers and attempting to capitalize on a trend — but their delivery is downright degrading.

Hunting/Fishing Licenses: The Perfect Gift

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

odfw_logoI mentioned yesterday the value of shopping online this holiday season. Finding the right gift for your outdoorsman can sometimes be difficult in conventional malls and department stores, which is why the Internet poses such a valuable alternative. For instance, yesterday, I noted how Coast offers a variety of hunting and fishing equipment including reliable LED products and quality knives. Today, however, I was reminded of another perfectly suitable gift for the hunter or fisherman in your life that can be found online as well: a license. According to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), hunting and fishing licenses for 2010 go on sale December 1, giving you plenty of time to make your purchase without setting a foot inside those busy stores.

For $55, you can get a new Juvenile Resident Sports Pac that allows 12 to 17 year olds to fish, hunt, crab and clam all year long. Adult anglers and hunters can get the same experiences with an Adult Sports Pac for $164.75. And senior citizens can get a fishing license for $15 and a hunting license for $13.75. Additionally, raffle tickets start at $4.50 for any hunter who wants an extra chance to hunt big game during an extended season and in an expanded hunt area.
