Coast HL7 LED Headlamp Review

Headlamps are extremely handy to keep in your tool box, glove box, closet, workshop….actually just about everywhere. The fact is, you’re going to need it at some point – it’s not “if”, it’s “when”.


The Coast HL7 comes with a convenient soft storage pouch.

This headlamp has some handy features that make it a standout.


The beam focuses from wide to narrow by twisting the ring around the LED.

Coast HL7 LED Headlamp Features

  • Focusable LED Beam
  • Dimmer Switch
  • Comfort Headband
  • 196 Lumens
  • Runs on 3 AAA batteries

The strap is comfortable enough to wear on your head, without a hard hat. It’s easily adjustable and doesn’t cut into your skin or pull your hair. The beam is bright and easily dimmed and focused, although you may need to use two hands on the focusing wheel.


A toggle lever on the battery compartment dims the LED.

I’ve used it around the shop, in the yard and even on the side of the highway to change a flat tire.


3 AAA batteries are inserted into the power module on the back of the headband. This unit also houses the dimmer lever.

Check out the video review and see the HL7 in action.
