A robust head torch with gesture control technology.

The Coleman CX + 250 head lamp is armed not just with reactive light technology but also KineSix™ which allows you to cycle through lighting modes without touching the light in any way. You simply swipe your hand 3cm from the light from left to right to cycle through the modes. Perfect for those are on the go.

Swipe you hand to cycle between 5 Lighting modes including a red and a super bright 250 lumen output.

It is made with the robust DuraGuard™ technology.

  • Light output: 250 lumens on maximum and 20 lumens (max/min)
  • Beam distance: 40m on maximum and 5m on minimum
  • Runtime: 4 hours on maximum and 50 hours on minimum
  • Featured Technology: BatteryLock™, DuraGuard™ REAX™ Auto Adjust, KineSix™ Hand-Swipe.
  • Water Resistant Level: IPX 4 (Splash Proof)
  • Size: 8.8 x 4.55 x 3.6 cm; headband 60 cm
  • Weight: 125g
  • Batteries: 3 AAA Duracell® included

Kinesix™ is a hands free alternative to the usual manual operation and therefore is much easier to operate if you are wearing gloves or undertaking strenuous activity. Inspired by Kinesics (the interpretation of the body’s motion) this technology allows you to cycle through the modes on the head torch without directly touching it. By swiping your hand from left to right 3cm from the light you can adjust lighting modes and move from red light to normal light. 


Reax™ is a reactive light technology that automatically adjusts the beam of the head torch to the environment it needs to illuminate and the needs of the user.

Hold down on/off button for 4 seconds to switch to REAX™ auto adjustment mode

When REAX™ mode is active you are free to roam, while the smart sensor automatically adjusts to the lighting needs. 
When focusing on items at a close proximity, lumens will decrease and the beam will have a flooding effect to increase visibility.
When on the move, the beam is wide and of medium strength to highlight the immediate terrain ahead. 
When looking into the distance, lumens will increase stretching out further in to the night.


Many standard electric lights will drain down over time due to the fact that their connectors remain engaged with the battery and you may not realise this until it is too late. With a simple twist BatteryLock™ technology allows you to disengage the batteries from their connectors.  This has three big advantages.


1. Batteries do not drain down without the light being on.
2. Protects the device from acid leak erosion. 
3. Ensures the device is off in transit.


DuraGuard™ is an additional layer of tough moulding that helps prevent the device from damage. The exterior shielding helps reduce damage from impact and weather making the device extra durable.

As soon as your hands, arms, anything your trying to see close up in the dark gets anywhere near it, it switches modes. Dont even bother trying to use it for diy. If you could fix it on one mode it would be an excellent torch. As it is its just really frustrating.

Glastonbury companion

Great head torch, took it to Glastonbury and it lasted all week and still has battery now! If you pull the torch head forward it disconnects the batteries. Definitely worth the price!! Loads of modes too! Night mode was good when people were sleeping!

Well worth the money.

Have one of those cheep head lamps, it is not very good. So decided to get one of these, wow what a fantastic head light, once you get the hang of its functions. Would not hesitate to buy another if required.

Only one minor point

Overall a great torch, I like the solid well built feel and it is very bright. Also the battery lock is a great feature.

Two very small bad and I use bad loosely I would have preferred a red light as the first light option(military/tactica use) and the had the option to turn off hands free. It is annoying at times but you do get used to it.

Fantastic but...

This really is a great head torch. I recommend it to everyone, however there are some things to keep in mind for the way you will use it.

+ Really well made, quality product.
+ Battery lasts really well.
+ 250 lumens is really bright for a headtorch! Blindingly bright to others.
+ The hands free mode switching is really annoying if you don't want to activate it accidentally. If you are caving or doing anything with objects in close approximation, it will switch mode and you will end up fiddling. This feature cannot be turned off.

Would have been 5 stars if you could turn off hands free mode switch.

Batteries won't run down........brilliant

Having seen an advert in a magazine for these head torches, I decided to buy one of the Coleman torches and head torches. I really like the idea of the Battery Lock mechanism which means the batteries won't drain or leak when i'm not using the device. I bought one of the torch versions to keep in my car for emergencies and also bought a head torch at the same time. I liked the idea of a hands free head torch when camping or out on my bike in the dark. The Kinesix technology, which changes the functions by waving your hand in front of the head torch, takes a bit of getting used to but once you get the hang of it is brilliant. Overall a great, powerful head torch that I can really on to work as the batteries won't run down when not in use.
