SHATTERING THE DARKNESS

THE COAST HL8R HEADLAMP OFFERS BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE AND VERSATILITY

I remember when I got my first LED light for outdoors use. It was a whole new concept for lighting at the time, and I don’t think most people understood the full potential of what was being developed; rather, it was a novelty.

The biggest benefit I got out of my first LED light was extended battery life. The handheld light had around eight LEDs, but the light was rather anemic and had a distinctive bluish tint. But I didn’t really care about its weaknesses; I was just happy to be on the cutting edge of a new revolution in lighting. And what a revolution it turned out to be!

I am a true believer in headlamps. That’s been the case since I had to set up a tent in the dark during a snowstorm on Mount Rogers back in 2004. Although the technology wasn’t as good at the time, the LED light still provided me with the advantage of keeping both hands free to get my shelter up quickly and get inside.

Flash forward about a dozen years to 2016. Now, no matter where I am outdoors, whether it’s camping in the summer or just taking a long day hike, I always have a headlamp with me ... just in case.
