BulletSafe’s Bulletproof hat: Kickstarter campaign

    From the company that brought us the BulletSafe panel for children’s backpacks, BulletSafe has launched a new Kickstarter for a bulletproof hat.

    It’s in the shape of a baseball hat and a bulletproof panel insert goes in front of your noggin.


    They’ve already done some T&E with a successful test using .22LR and .40cal rounds:

    BulletSafe has launched a Kickstarter to raise funds for tooling and production, and they have already doubled their $3500 goal with 26 days left in the campaign.

    Now that you know the caps will go into production, the big benefit of pre-buying now is that you’ll get in on a really good price. A $99 pledge will get you a bulletproof cap, and I’m sure the prices will be more expensive once they go onsale to the general public in Dec 2015.
