Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lou260 GOOD FIT - GOOD LIGHT
This review if for the Coast HL5-6 Chip LED Headlamp, Model TT7041CP. This headlamp has several features that distinguish it from other lights. Instead of a single, elastic band to which the lamp is attached, the Coast HL5-6 has a harness with a top strap in addition to a side strap. Most single strap headlamps are uncomfortable to wear for any length of time because the single strap has to be very tight to prevent slipping and moving. The addition of a top strap provides a secure fit and permits the wearer to comfortably use the headlamp for an extended period of time. Both the top strap and side strap are easily adjusted to size. The battery pack mounted to the rear of the harness holds 3 AAA batteries in a light weight case attached to the lamp by a flexible wire running along the side strap. The rear mounting of the battery pack nicely balances the front mounted LED light and limits the weight on one’s forehead to just the lamp. The lamp is mounted with a vertical hinge that requires only slight pressure to point the lamp downward. It can be moved to an almost 90-degree angle making it easy to use for close-up work without neck strain. In the horizontal position the lamp casts a wide beam so one does not have to constantly turn from side to side for peripheral vision. The lamp is turned on and off with an easy to reach push button type switch mounted directly to the lamp casing so it is easy to reach in any position of the lamp. The manufacturer claims that the lamp is both impact and weather resistant, and although I have not dropped it or subjected it to rain, the product’s quality leads me think that the claim is accurate. I keep it on my workbench and its use has permitted me to remove two desk lamps that I had mounted near my work area. Not only is the light better from this headlamp, I now have use of the work area previously taken up by the lamps. The light can also be mounted to a hard hat and since I had one lying around from my younger days, I tried the mounting clips that come with the headlamp and it indeed mounted very well to the hard hat so for those working in a hard hat area this headlamp will work fine.

I must have looked at more than 50 lights. Keep going back to this lamp for price and description. This was an outstanding value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BC Very good functionality; excellent quality
I've always needed a headlamp and finally purchased this one. I looked at others which cost less, but the quality was not up to par.
Very satisfied with the product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Selfdo Very nice headlamp
This headlamp is comfortable and the light is very bright. Although I haven't used it enough really to rate the quality as per durability, it looks to be well made. If you're looking for a hands free light, this headlamp is well worth the money

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 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 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

This light is great. Fits nicely and is very bright. I am a sprinkler fitter and alot of times I am in the dark and can't see to hang pipe. This light is the best i have found and I love it. Lights up the whole area your in and allows you to use two hands to work. I have tried alot of other lights but they where either uncomfortable or not bright enough. This light is very comfortable and very bright. I would recommend to anyone to buy this light. I love it and I am glad Home Depot was the place I found it at.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Neunerball So far, the brightest of it's kind
I've had several LED headlamps, that also included the red light. I need the red light for my nights out with the telescope. These are by far the brightest I've owned. The only problem I see with it, is the wire going from the battery casing to the lights. You might get hooked on something, while crawling in tight spaces. That's the reason for giving it four, rather than five stars.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2107OK This product is so handy.
This headlamp is an excellent light. You can direct it where you need it and your hands are free to take care of the project that you are doing. We have used it several times and still have not replaced any batteries. My husband said that it is so handy and he is so pleased that I ordered it. It arrived within a few days after ordering it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mandersn13 Great product at a great price
This was originally purchased for a small group of retired men for birthday presents. They were a hit with them so I purchased one for myself. Excellent product at a lower price than comparable models. Bright and adjustable angles too.

By far the best - and brightest headlamp I have owned. I actually loaned it to a friend for a backpacking trip and it literally saved his life and got his group out of a big jam, even in the pouring rain. Now all my climbing and hiking buddies are asking where to get one! Best value of any product I have come across in a long time!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SeattleHandyman Nice headlamp for the price
Finally got to try this headlamp out installing a flat screen TV in a dark room. The brightness and battery life is great. It made the job so much easier than having a flashlight in my hand while trying to work. My wife bought a different headlamp 3-pack local for half the price and it does not even compare to the brightness and quality of the Coast model.

I'm a fisherman and do mostly night fishing. This light is perfect for my needs. I had to re-wire the wire going to the battery pack because the battery pack interfered with my hat. Now I put the battery pack in my back pocket and all is well. For the price, I actually purchased a second one for my wife and one for my brother.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by buckeye Surprised how bright this light is!
I was surprised how bright this light is for the price. I have used it several times to take the trash out at night. It lights up my whole back yard and shines about 30 to 40 yards with a bright white light. Not the blue light that alot of LED lights produce. I bought it for hunting, but it should also work great for home repairs when a hands free light is needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bryson315 Great Headlamp for the $$$
This product is great for what I use it for. Works great underneath a vehicle, easy to turn on and off and adjust direction of the beam. Nice and bright but does seem to chew through batteries.
Only real conI can find for what I do is that the batteries being behind your head can be uncomfortable when laying on your back under a vehicle.

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!

This headlight is convenient to use and a great value. I'm wondering why I didn't do this sooner. Having both of my hands free is a tremendous advantage for all types of work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pat2013 This is a great deal and useful!
I am a luxury coach technician and there are some tight dark areas to work in. This light helps 100% as long the batteries are fresh. Once the batteries are low on power the unit is not too bright. Great product though. A must have.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rebob22 For the money no better light
I'm a HVAC contractor and have probably 8 - 10 headlamps. Several costing 2 to 3 times the cost of this one. None work any better than this coast light. This light works as good as light costing 3 times as much, so for the money this is the great deal.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KM1210 Good brightness
This product was a good value and performed well. However, there was an annoying problem where the light flickered when the lamp was bumped or the wire from the battery to the lamp was moved. I was going to exchange for a different one but could not find another in the store so I returned it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wogd Awsome headlight, super bright, use at work on construction site
It is dark when we start work on the cold winter mornings. This LED head light will blow your mind when you see how efficient it is and how extremely bright it illuminates the work area. Everyone I work with is getting one too.
