Coast Products Announces New Gear

Coast Products announced several new items that may appeal to a range of shooters and hunters. The gear includes two new flashlights and a new folding knife.

FX200 Knife


Knives and guns go together like cookies and milk. Both products are tools that can increase your self reliance, and both can be used recreationally. The new FX200 pocket knife is a good example of this.

This frame lock folder is small, so it is able to slip into a pocket and be carried with you anywhere. It has a 2″ blade made of 3CR13 steel and weighs only 1.4 ounces. The pocket clip doubles as a money clip.

A small go anywhere knife like this ensures you always have a cutting tool with you whether in the field or in the office. It also has a built in bottle opener, which allows you to open a root beer after a long day of hiking or stacking inventory. MSRP: $15

PX1R Flashlight

Anyone that carries a gun should carry a flashlight. After all, if you cannot identify a threat, you should not pull the trigger. Having a small, bright light is important.

The PX1R is a small – 4.9″ long and less than 5 ounces – flashlight that still throws a lot of light: 460 lumens. An extension of the PX1 line, this model adds a rechargeable li-ion pack for up to 3.5 hours of runtime on high. It can also run on 3 AAA batteries as a backup. It has a pocketclip and tail switch. MSRP: $90

Polysteel 600R Flashlight

For a larger light to keep in the truck or by the bed, the Polysteel 600R adds a rechargeable component to the existing 600 line. It can throw 530 lumens for up to 5.75 hours. The light is just under 8″ long and weighs 12 ounces. In addition to the rechargeable battery, it can also run on 4 AA batteries. MSRP: $100

  • Indianasteve

    $10 at Home Depot

    • DangerousClown

      Or Lowe’s.

  • John

    I love Coast products. I have bought a number of them and not had a failure yet. The problem is, every time I am in Home Depot I think I need another one so….they are starting to pile up around my house and car.

  • Gun-Toting Racist

    I really like the Coast HX-5. Plenty bright and it uses regular AA or the lithium version (but the Li goes through the battery pretty quickly). The clip is cool also, double-sided so you can clip it to a baseball cap brim as a headlight in a pinch. Mine is silver but I’ve never seen another silver one, only black.
    A knife with a bottle opener is something I can use. The ‘can-opener’ on my Leatherman tool is worse than using a bic lighter.

  • Paul Rain

    That knife is a lot of cool angles for the money.

  • 22winmag

    I prefer the Walmart Sheffield knife with glass breaker and cord cutter.

  • Henry Reed

    Beware of a $15 knife. Having said that, I want.
