Portland, Ore. – March 12, 2024 – COAST, the global leader in LED portable lighting technology and knives, elevates their diverse range of headlamps with a groundbreaking hands-free innovation. Say goodbye to fumbling with dirty or occupied hands - now you can effortlessly control your light beam and color output with 15 intuitive voice commands. 

Beyond its revolutionary voice control feature, the RL35R headlamp offers an array of lighting options including LED and warm white, as well as red, blue, and green variations. With a robust dual-fixed beam system, users can seamlessly switch between flood and spot LED options, or indulge in COAST's ARC280 area lighting system, a first for a COAST headlamp; illuminating and providing visibility sideways, for greater vision in warm white or red-light options.  

Brian Sheehy, Product Developer at COAST, about the RL35R: “This was an exciting light to design because it can be so diverse for the user. They can choose between the easy voice-controlled option, or hands-on application. It’s been amazing to show people how reliably it works, we’ve tested it in many ways, and it’s worked over video calls or crowded events. It’s also extremely fun to use.” 

Packed with user-friendly features, the RL35R includes COAST's Variable Light Control™, allows users to effortlessly adjust the light output to suit their environment with a simple rotation of the dial. Boasting an impressive 1100 lumen output at its highest setting and 12 lumens at its lowest, and a beam distance range of 4-170 meters, this light is adaptable to any situation. 

Designed with practicality in mind, the RL35R features an independently controlled rear battery pack attached to the reflective and breathable Ultra-Strap™. For added convenience, users can opt for a detached battery pack using the included extension cable, easily attaching it to clothing or bags as needed. The battery pack boasts desirable features such as a battery indicator and safety signal in solid or flashing red light options. 

Since its inception in 1919 by Henry W. Brands, COAST has remained a family-owned and operated business, now in its fourth generation. Renowned for their purpose-built portable lights, knives, multi-tools, and rechargeable batteries crafted from top-grade materials, COAST stands behind their products with a lifetime warranty. Their mission is to enhance people's lives by making them safer, easier, and more enjoyable.
