COAST FL1R Ultralight Headlamp | SHOT Show 2020

Ultralight lovers of the world rejoice as COAST has a new headlamp for you. The COAST FL1R rechargeable headlamp was one of the standouts in this year’s line so we wanted to take a few minutes and run you through its features and cost.

The FL1R is an ultralight rechargeable headlamp that boasts both white and red light. Sorry military folks you have to cycle through white to get to the red light so no using it at work, however you can use it to run and ruck on your off time in the dark.

Clip

What really caught our eye was the clip. Instead of having to wear it using the headband you can remove the headband and clip it to your pack strap, inside the tent or even the brim of your hat. We can feel all the ultralight folks right now trying to figure out if the clip or the strap weighs more so they can decide what has to go. The clip can be rotated to face up or down.

Tilt

The FL1R tilts like a traditional headlamp, and in conjunction with the headband or clip should work for most lighting scenarios. The light isn’t released just yet but we will include the tech specs of it below.
