Gear Review: COAST WPH34R 2000 Lumen Waterproof Rechargeable LED Headlamp


COAST WPH34R 2000 Lumen Waterproof Rechargeable LED Headlamp


Overpower the night; outsmart the elements. Built for boldness, the WPH34R headlamp is the peak performer in the company’s waterproof collection. Engineered IP68 tough to withstand everything from spring rain to full submersion, this headlamp delivers up to 2000 lumens and a max beam distance of 180 meters (590 feet). As versatile as it is strong, the WPH34R shines in five output modes spanning three beam colors — white, red and green — and features a light body that rolls in its bracket for directional control but can also detach to become a handheld light. Equipped with the COAST Ultra-Strap — a silicone-lined, nonslip breathable mesh band with an integrated buckle — the WPH34R can be worn, hung or strapped to structures for lighting convenience. Featuring the COAST Dual Power system, this all-conditions headlamp runs for up to 36 hours on a single charge of its COAST ZITHION-X rechargeable lithium-ion battery or can operate on three alkaline AAAs.  


To best use this product make sure you fully charge before use. Charge directly from AC, DC and USB. Flashlights and headlamps with COAST PRO-TEK Charging include a direct-connect port for powering back up. Use in dark environments during activities such as tying on tackle early in the morning, walking on dark trails and any activity that requires direct lighting for an individual point of view.





As someone who likes to fish and duck hunt, I have found I really get great use from this headlamp. Especially when I have to tackle bait late at night on my boat before a tournament, or even early in the morning when I am making some last adjustments before launch. Something I also really need this for is when it’s duck hunting season, and we are out super early in the morning setting out decoys and running back and forth from the truck to the blind. My grandfather, who takes me hunting, can tell you that back in the day they used to set out decoys with a handheld lantern. I’m surely going to have to keep an eye on this headlamp because he is definitely going to want to steal it from me. All in all, a good headlamp is also a great tool to have on hand in the center console of your vehicle. It comes in handy if you have car problems at night and need to work on your engine in the dark, or if you wreck and get trapped off-road where it is more difficult to be spotted by a pedestrian. Just engage the “signaling” mode and shine it in the direction of traffic. So, this light could also potentially save your life. I highly recommend getting this for a loved one.
