The FL85 Dual-Color Pure Beam Focusing LED Headlamp is COAST's most powerful of their single-unit front-loading models and gives you the ability to choose from three white-light outputs and set the beam configuration, allowing you to tailor the output to the job or task you have in front of you. From the low 96-lumen through the medium 330-lumen to the high 615-lumen outputs, you get a variety of options to perfectly illuminate your work area, and you can switch to a single red light if you need to preserve night-adjusted vision when switching eyepieces or filters during astronomy sessions or just moving around without disturbing your tent or cabin mates.
With a simple twist of the head, the versatile Pure Beam system allows you to switch from the wide Ultra View Flood Beam, which lights large areas close to you with a smooth and consistent beam from one edge to the other, to a focused spotlight that is optimized for a long throw. In the spot mode, the light has COAST's "Bull's-Eye" Beam, which has a bright center circle that smoothly transitions to a dimmer "halo" around it, providing maximum illumination precisely where you need it with plenty of spill to keep you aware of your surroundings. The angle of the light head can be adjusted down for precise beam placement to fully illuminate where you're working.
The light runs on three included AAA batteries that are easy to replace when you need to. Weighing just 4.5 ounces, the light won't cause neck strain or discomfort while wearing it, and it comes with an adjustable headband accented with reflective details to improve your visibility to others if you're walking the dog on the roadside. To withstand inclement weather, the housing is IPX4-rated to be water resistant against splashing water or rain. The FL85 comes complete and ready to use with batteries, an adjustable-fit headband with reflective accents, and a set of hard hat clips.
