The Coast HX3 clip light has a maximum output of 80 lumens white light from a COB LED and comes with an integrated pocket clip for hands free use.
As well as the main white light the HX3 also offers a secondary UV light output which is useful for a range of tasks including ID verification, police/forensic use and leak/dye detection.
The back of the light features a plastic crocodile clip which is useful when camping as you can clip it to a tent or when out walking as you can clip it to clothing, a back pack strap or even on to the peak of a cap. The clip also features four small magnets in each corner allowing another way for hands free use when in the garage or inspecting the car.
The HX3 is simple to use and is operated with the large push button on the front of the light, which is easy to press even with gloves on. The head can be swivelled within an 80° angle to adjust the light source to where you need it.
It is powered by two AAA alkaline batteries with a run-time of up to 3 hours, 45 minutes on the white light setting and can throw the beam 13 metres.

Had this torch for around a year, the torch itself is great for me as a police officer. I use the retaining clip around the fabric of my stab vest and it generally is held in place. That said a few months ago whilst restraining someone one of the swivels on the side came off exposing some cables within which wasn't a major issue alone however last night in similar circumstances the rubber on/off button came off exposing all of the internal electronics.
The HX3 torch is perfect as a torch and the UV detection.
Very bright, with UV, runs almost forever off two aaa batteries - wouldn't be without one when sailing - although then I use an HX4 with red light. Product was delivered very quickly. I'd highly recommend either - the style hangs round your neck and illuminates in front of you very well when worn with a lanyard. Only criticism would be the spring clip and magnets, neither of which are up to much, but usable in a "static" situation.
