Coast HX5 Pure Beam Focusing Pocket Light : Review

We took our HX5 out into the field on a recent camping trip, and loved how it’s lightweight functionality improved everything from cooking s’mores around the campfire to going for a night hike.  When out on the trail, we clipped Coast’s HX5 to the bill of our cap, and used it’s spotlight beam to clearly illuminate the path ahead.  When we heard noises coming from the trees above us, we slide our HX5’s beam into floodlight focus and were able to observe a barred owl, emerging from its nest for an evening hunt. After an experience like that, how can you not fall in love with this light … especially at right around $25. The price for the quality you’re getting is just amazing.

An excellent everyday carry for any outdoor adventurer, the HX5 from Coast goes above and beyond what we at 50 Campfires expect of a palm-sized flashlight. Offering a 259-foot beam distance and the Coast Pure Beam Focusing System with Slide Focus, this little lamp easily transitions from a large ultra-view flood beam to a bulls-eye spot beam, illuminating whatever you need to see. Lightweight enough to clip onto the bill of a hat with Coast’s unique 2-way clip, the HX5 is impact resistant, weather resistant and lights up the great outdoors with a virtually unbreakable LED lamp.

And if you find yourself needing some flexibility, the HX5 accepts a variety of power options, not just standard alkaline AA, also rechargeable NiMH or rechargeable Lithium 14500’s as well. Backed by Coast’s lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship, the HX5 is priced low enough to fill every stocking on our list, along with a few for us to keep for ourselves.
