In this HD video I demonstrate the power of the high-performance Coast HP314 Focusing LED Light.  This monster has three modes: high, stobe, and low.  On high the beam will travel up to 2240 feet!  Plus, the four D batteries (included) boast an impressive run time of 4 hours 15 minutes.  On low, the HP314 works effectively for 192 hours, at 185 meters.  The long range focusing optic worked extremely well.  You can go from broad view flood beam, to X-Range spot beam with a quick adjustment forward or back.  It illuminates all ranges in between, so you have ultimate control of the intense light.

In the box you get a heavy-duty shoulder strap, and thick protective end caps.  However, they have to be removed after each use, because the light wont fit in the carrying case with them attached.  The HP314 has an amazing feel.  With the strap, its weight is evenly balanced.  I had no issues with grip even when Survival Bros tested it in the rain.  My hands were cold, but it’s just the right size width to grasp naturally.  In addition, the diamond shaped knurling pattern on the casing gives it just enough texture, without being overly abrasive.

It’s durable casing is made of lightweight professional grade aluminum.  The light kept shining after a shock test, when I threw it on the ground several times.  I even had it submerged in murky water for minutes while turned on.  This is an epic tool for rescue and law enforcement professionals, or anyone who needs to see at long distances.  The HP314 weathered the Survival Bros stress test.  All Coast products have a lifetime guarantee.  Their quality is unmatched.  Check out the full line of products at  More product reviews soon.  Thanks for watching, and visiting my emergency preparedness blog.  Please subscribe to this website, and our Youtube channel to receive all of our posts.  Peace.

If you are looking for a great everyday carry LED flashlight, I may have found the one for you. The Coast PX25 is a rugged little light saber from a Oregon company. Below is my latest HD stress test video, filmed on the beach, and in the water in Seaside, OR.

You wouldn’t expect a light that can easily fit in your palm to be so powerful, but the Coast PX25 LED flashlight boasts 208 lumens. That’s hardcore. It even came with three AAA Duracell batteries, so it was ready to go. Also included was a useful belt sheath, which I will actually use. Plus, you get a wrist strap for extra security. All this, for an MSRP of just $42. That’s a bargain to me.

If you watch my review, you’ll also see how the Bulls Eye Spot beam works. This style gives you an awesome focused spot, with a wide flood light. It’s a great design. The PX25 is made of aluminum, so it’s tough. And the LED light is UNBREAKABLE. Trust me, I tried to shatter it, to no avail. Coast thought of everything, and this may be my favorite flashlight ounce for ounce. Speaking of it’s 4.2 ounces with the batteries. I use it as part of my EDC. It’s just the right size, and isn’t too wide. It’s 1.1 inches wide, and 4.7 inches long. The runtime on the PX25 is 6 hours 15 minutes. Impressive. Plus, the beam blasts 128 meters, so it covers ground like a champ.

I’d talk trash about the PX25 if I could, but Coast Products made a great tool here, it even stood up to me beating it on the cement. Just don’t put the battery pack in backwards. This is a must have in my opinion. Enjoy the video I produced. More fun stress test videos soon. Thanks for visiting Survival Bros. For additional information on this product visit
