Ribcabs high tech hats warm and protect your head


Ribcabs are basically the next-generation in hat design. They serve two important purposes: the typical “keep-my-head-and-ears-warm,” and the unexpected “keep-my-head-safe” in case of a major collision on the busy Christmas slopes. The hat collection uses a special material called “StructUre” that has the ability to immediately harden on impact to ensure the protection of your skull

The impact of energy rich electrons includes a rearrangement and creation of additional molecular cross-links within the Structure™ foam, this results in a transition of the foam from a flexible into a semi-rigid or even rigid state.

The Ribcabs come in different styles and colors and the prices range from £41.95 (about $85,00) for the kids' models to £59.50 (about $120,00) for the adult ones. Available at Kit2Fit.
