Outfitted with three outputs and a focusable beam, the COAST HL8R Pure Beam Focusing Rechargeable LED Headlamp is built to give you a versatile illumination tool that lights large areas for far ahead, all while leaving both hands free to perform any task.
A simple on/off push button activates the light and an output control dial on the side allows you to quickly and easily select from the three brightness levels. With just a twist of the head, the versatile Pure Beam focusing 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. The angle of the light head can be adjusted down as much as 90° for precise beam placement to fully illuminate where you're working.
The light is capable of running on both rechargeable and disposable batteries, and COAST gives you both to get you started. Running the lithium-ion (li-ion) pack gives you maximum output and runtimes, and in a pinch you can quickly change to alkaline batteries—but max output will be a little lower and runtimes shorter. To help distribute the weight more evenly and relieve unwanted stress on the neck and head, the batteries are placed in a separate case on the back of the light, which makes it more comfortable to wear for extended periods without slipping forward when you're leaning over. A 3' battery cable extension allows the battery case to be removed from the headband and worn on a belt or put in your pocket for additional relief. The housing is IPX4-rated to be water resistant against inclement weather such as snow, rain, or just splashing water so you can use it for just about any job you have...inside or out.

Pure Beam Focusing System
- Switch from the wide Ultra View Flood Beam, which lights large areas close to you, to a focused spotlight that is optimized for a long throw
- Ultra View Flood Beam is smooth and consistent from one edge to the other without the center area of bright light
- Bull's-Eye Beam is optimized for a far throw with 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
- Batteries held in separate case located on back of headband to evenly distribute weight and reduce neck strain
- Runs on either rechargeable li-ion power pack or four AA alkaline batteries
- Li-ion power pack and AA batteries are included with light
- Using alkaline batteries reduces maximum output and shortens runtimes versus li-ion power pack
- Charge power pack in or out of the light using included USB charging cord—no external battery chargers required
- Quickly and easily change from power pack to batteries
- 3' battery cable extension allows battery case to be removed from headband and worn on belt or put in pocket to reduce neck strain
