|Caution: You might look like a "Despicable Me" minion!|
We’re in for some very cold weather this week with the possibility of snow and definitely high winds. The worst part of winter for me is how early it gets dark. I find it difficult to navigate the frozen moon craters in the paddocks or spot black ice. It’s impossible to carry a flashlight and lead ropes if you’re as uncoordinated as I am. So I bought this great hat that solves a lot of my ‘working in the dark’ problems and thought I’d share it with you. Might make a special Christmas gift for anyone who challenges the dark mornings and nights.
The hat is called “ X CAP”. It gives 4 hours of light and can be recharged directly on any USB port. The light in the front is simple to use you just press it and there are three levels of light intensity. It can also be washed, just make sure to read the directions. The hat comes in any color you want as long as it’s gray. Or at least that was the only color choice when I purchased it last year maybe they have more colors now. I believe I purchased it from this web site: https://www.thegrommet.com/x-cap
I took a few pictures of the hat unlit and lit:
I think it's a great invention.
