Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RCM Not combat ready witout it
I owned a coast during my tour un Iraq. I was heartbroken to have lost it after 3 years. I got another one and took it to Afghanistan and it was run over by a hummer but still worked. I've dropped it, wacked it, and finally after 5 years it died and wouldn't work. Through a lot of abuse it worked for me and is a brand I trust. Soo reliable and easy to flip the battery pack around to preserve the life of the batteries.

I am an avid collector of high quality and high powered flashlights. When both of my $120 Surefire tactical flashlights went out due to damaged bulbs (pre LED conversion), I needed a temporary flashlight until I got my Surefires repaired. I did a ton of research for a few days and looked around for a new torch in the price range of $20 to $30. I narrowed it down between this product and a Dorcy for the same price but only had 80 lumens. I held off and finally went to check out this light at the store and was so impressed. It was MUCH brighter than its sister product that costs $15 more!! I work in an environment that requires small flashlights that are powerful and have a long battery life. I know this is the one to get the job done. I definitely recommend this for those who don't want to spend a ton of money and want a REAL powerful flashlight. My Surefires cost 3x and 5x more than this product and are only 20 lumens brighter. This is INCREDIBLE!! (as a side note, it also comes in Silver, that's the color that I had to choose from at my local store.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Faire LADIES-- IT'S THE BEST!
This little flashlight is simply THE BEST! Ladies, are you listening?
Finally, a flashlight that is POWERFUL... so much light, so bright... and, if you've got long FINGERNAILS, like I do, those 'on-off' flashlights that you press from the bottom are horrible.
Well, no more. These flashlights have the 'ON-OFF BUTTONS ON THE SIDE... one for bright white light... one for the red, (which absolutely gives enough bright red light to see your way around a darkened bedroom when your loved ones are sleeping).
I can't tell you how wonderful this flashlight is. We went back and BOUGHT 5 MORE! One for each car, one for the bedroom, laundry room, kitchen. The first one we bought is in the living room.
They are small and so lightweight... even ARTHRITIC hands can hold them, and turn them on-and-off, with ease.
BUY THEM WITH CONFIDENCE. You won't be disappointed.
p.s. Get the SILVER-ENCASED ones if you can. The black ones are harder to see in the dark when you need to grab for it.

Son got me this light for Father's Day...used it almost daily now for 2 months...still using batteries that came with it. Excellent brightness from such a small light, and also has a red light for map reading or situations that require less intensity. He told me he bought it at Home Depot, so now that I know it's only $25, what a bargain! Mine is silver, may just have to get the black one too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ClaudiaM Best small flash light I've owned!
I found this flash light to perform flawlessly around the house. It provides an extremly bright that is well concentrated. Also, the first one I had lasted a year then malfunctioned. I bought a new one and sent the broken one back to Coast, they repaired it and I had it back in less then 10 days! Great product and great service.

Well, perhaps 9.9/10. I believe that the surface cross-hatching on the white light button should be easier to feel, to help distinguish it from the smooth red light button surface in low light conditions.

This light is bright and solid. The light was purchased to sit on my nightstand, but it is now my carry light.
