A LIGHT IN THE DARK
LIGHT IS EVERYTHING at this time of year – but it doesn’t just need to be bright, it needs to be tough to survive on a boat or the winter towpath, which is where this new rechargeable Coleman® Twist+ 300 R lantern comes in. As well as shedding 300 lumens of light (it lit our way around a boatyard superbly) it’s very tough. That’s down to a new reinforced rubber construction, a shatter-proof lens and it’s been drop-tested at two metres. It also has a USB port (cable and mains plug supplied) so it can be charged from all types of power outlets. Coleman® is well known for making good outdoor products and this is a bright, capable light that will survive the rigours of boats and winter. Although the recommended price is a relatively pricey £ 69.99, we found it widely available for under £ 50 – worth it, we reckon.
