Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYgal Great little headlamp!
I have a small house cleaning business and purchased this headlamp to light up dark spots under beds, behind furniture, etc. It does a great job lighting up the areas that are difficult to see to clean. Now I find myself grabbing it for tasks around my own home, including a plumbing repair under the kitchen sink, gluing a broke nic nac, sewing on a button. I love it. Everyone should have one. I am almost looking forward to the next power outage! I can't imagine how I got by without it. This particular one was inexpensive, but very well made, reasonably comfortable to wear, and I have dropped it a few times with no ill effects. So nice to not have to be holding a flashlight in your hands or dealing with bulky, awkward utility lights. Warning: be sure to turn it off when someone else comes into the room, it is so bright that it will temporarily blind someone looking at you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark SHOCKINGLY PLEASED !!!
I do computer repairs, and am constantly having to use and move around a flashlight or desk lamp to make be able to see small parts.
When I looked at the photo of this online, I was skeptical, but after getting the real thing - I was very pleased. PLUS...it came WITH the batteries installed!
When I tried it out, I couldnt believe the quality, the amount of light it puts out, the ability to adjust the direction of the beam, the lightweight comfort, and a LIFETIME warranty.
I just ordered the COAST catalogue based on this fine product

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigJ Bright and long lasting
I've purchased at least half-dozen different types of headlamps to help me when I have to work outdoors at night. Some were single beam and others multi beam or multi brighness. None of them compare to the Coast 6 LED head lamp for overall saturation of light and brightness. The unit turns on and off very easily. The light is consistantly bright over a wide area, perfect if you're working outside in the dark (snowblowing in the winter perhaps?). It also allows for side vision without having to turn your head to illuminate an object. The battery compartment is behind your head and balances the unit nicely (no heavy light and battery unit on your forehead). The batteries change in a snap, no fumbling or snapping plastic parts when changing the batteries. Overall I really enjoy working outside in the dark now, with this light. They're great for walking your dog at night too! Helps you to see and be seen!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Funkactivist Not as good as I expected, but not bad.
Well lets start by saying Home depot claims this is 175 lumens, yet when you open the box it says 145 on the packet!!? Yeah thanks for that!
I'm a pest control tech and use headlamps mainly for dark basements/ crawl spaces. I wanted a headlamp to replace my Streamlight flashlight (185 lumens). For the price this looked perfect!
Well it is bright... But fades fast... And then lasts ages as a dim headlamp.
Build quality's not bad, as is operation of controls. And it's very comfortable (even though you look like a bit of a dork wearing it).
Access to batteries is easy too.
If they'd added a circuit to keep it the same brightness till the batt dies it would have been great (if not quite bright enough)
The search continues for the perfect headlamp....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HoustonTXGuy Initial impression ONLY
I have not put this guy to the test in the garage. My impression is based on minor repairs around the house. First, light is very bright. There's an up-down swivel at the base of the light. Harness is sturdy and fits very well around my head, and I can position the light where I want. No problems with battery back opening so far as some have suggested. First impression is of a well-made, quality product. At the $8 level, amazing value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Justcharlie Best headlamp I have found.
Have bought their flashlights and when I saw this I had to latch on to it at the price. It is by far the absolute best headlamp I have come across. Guess I have bought about 20 of other brands and have found pros and cons on them all. Thought that since this one was not adjustable for position, that was going to be a con. Soon as I tested it had to erase that. Built to take that into account so it was unnecessary to adjust it due to the engineering.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Customer Very brightness and long lasting battery life.
Very White Bright Light headlamp as advertized and the battery life is amazingly long, My wife uses when she is knitting ( 1 to 2 hours a evening ) and the Batteries lasted over three weeks. It is light weight and allow the use of both hands on any task. Three duracell batteries are included. I purchased a dozen to give for Xmas gifts, 11 worked perfectly, one did not.
