    A Must Have

    I bought one for my son’s 11th birthday and it was so cool I went back to Best Buy on his birthday to buy 2 more. One for my 17 year old son and one for me. We used the hats that night to play “Manhunt” in the house with all the lights off only using the lights on the hats... It was a blast! We plan on having a nerf gun war at night with the hats on Christmas and we are actually looking forward to the day we have a power outage due to weather so we can still read and see to go to the restroom or throughout the house if the power goes out at night. This hat will definitely come in handy when we get snow because we will be able to snow sled down out back hill at night instead of only going sledding when it’s still daylight. The hat comes in a variety of colors which we got so no one takes the other persons hat. This has a multi-purpose hat. For instants if you’re working on something and need a flashlight but can’t hold one because you need both your hands or if you’re working under the hood of your vehicle. The fleece lining and keeps your head warm and the batteries are easily accessible to change out. Not to mention replacement batteries are easy to find at your local store that sells batteries such as batteries for watches.

    Lighted cap

    These are so cool!!!!! Bought them for myself and my bff for when we are bike riding. We wore them on a bike ride before weather turned wintry and we both loved how well they lit our paths on our night ride. So then I bought my son, daughter-in-law and my grandson each a cap for when they ride bikes or talk walks in the evenings. My mom saw a post of a pic of me and my bff wearing them on our bikes and asked for one she can wear when she takes her dog outside at night and early mornings. So I went and got another cap for her! They are super soft and comfortable and the battery is replaceable so it's not a one and done product. We are crazy about these caps and I highly recommend them to anyone who could use some light in the dark. We are planning to use them for shoveling snow in our driveways when it's dark too!

    I have TWO of these hats - HIGHLY recommended

    First bougth a black cap and later bought the orange one. I take walks very early in the AM, before the sun comes up. MUST have this hat to see what's in front of me AND to be seen by drivers who insist on texting while driving. - almost got hit once without this hat. I am bald and the hat keeps in the body heat and can totally cover my ears. Hat is very well designed, a lot of light that is through downward at about a 45 degree angle so I can see what's directly in front of me. The fluorescent orange adds another layer of visibility. I also find my self using it around the house on some projects where i need more light, like when I work on the wiring in a closet, or anywhere that more light is needed when I have both hands full. HIGHLY recommended.

    Warm comfortable hat, low-profile lights

    First off, the hat is warm and comfortable. You don't feel like there's some battery pack at the back of your head or some light fixture at the front of your head. It looks like a normal hat. The lights aren't super bright, but they are certainly bright enough. For close map reading, they're extremely bright. If you were in pitch darkness like out in a forest, they would be great. Obviously many flashlights are a little bit brighter, but for a hands-free hiking light that wouldn't bother the people you're walking around with, it's a great hat. I highly recommend it.

    Lights worked well outdoors for truck driver.

    Husband said the lights worked well when checking off paperwork outdoors, as he drives a truck. Also came in handy when he dropped something in the cab where the overhead wasn't strong enough. My son was checking it out as well. Only drawback was that the buttons behind the cap he had to keep fishing for. I think after wearing it a while, it would have become easier to locate readily. It was purchased at the tail end of winter/early spring; so only used a few times in the evening. Price was reasonable, so if I see it again, I may buy it for my son anyway who also works outdoors. Will probably save as a Christmas gift. Can only benefit anyone who works evenings, outside, in a garage, etc., and needs to keep both hands free.

    feels soft and snug, great

    I like the price, around $5, I think it was on special. The cap feels great and has a fleece like feel. It's comfortable, I've had it on for an hour or so. it has a scrungee like snug fit, like a small band is inside the rim of the sewing of the hood, which feels good, not tight. I think it's a one size fits all, my head is kind of small. the light isn't as bright as I though, but I think it's set at the right brightness, it should not be blinding cars driving towards me, for example. reading should definitely be easier. I bought it mostly for fun and price.

    Green looks used

    I just received my 2 black PowerCap 3555 and 1 green (sale) PowerCap 3555. The hats and lights are wonderful. The beanies are comfortable (not heavy weight, but nice), look good on, and the lights are very bright and fun. They are really practical hats. The problem is the green one on sale appears worn and sort of dirty on the inside. It looks like it may have been in a store and tried on multiple times. The green color is fun, but then when I saw that, I was so let down. I am too busy to send it back, so will just take the loss. My black ones are really wonderful.

    Head stays toasty, and you can see at night!

    I walk my dogs in the evening, and I would often wear a beanie hat, AND a headlamp, AND a pair of Bluetooth headphones. It got crowded on top of my head, so this helped eliminate some of the problems of limited head real estate! It still covers my ears even with the headphones on, and it's easy to turn on and off and needed. The battery compartment on the rear is a little odd and not easy to get to - thus the 4/5 stars. But otherwise it's a great cap for when you want to stay warm and not wear an additional hiking headlamp.

    This beanie cost me only five dollars and I have to say it's so worth at least $20. It made an awesome stocking stuffer for my 30-year-old son who spends a lot of time splunking in caves and hiking. Just can't beat having a light to light your path hands-free while keeping your head warm. This was a great purchase and I encourage anybody to buy one. Whether you like to ride bikes at night, jog, or just simply want to take an evening walk or nighttime walk....you cannot go wrong with the purchase of this beanie with LED lights to light the way.

    CAME DIRTY

    I don't usually do reviews, but feel I have to with this item. I purchased 3 of these PowerCaps. I was wanting to give these as Christmas gifts. When they came, I was truly disappointed at at the condition of each of them. They all came looking like someone had stepped on them. They were dirty and looked like they were worn because little lint balls were on each of them. They would have been a perfect gift, however because of the condition I couldn't gift them.....truly disappointed Best Buy.

    Warm and Useful for working in low-light condition

    This item was purchased as a gift for my son who has his own automotive repair shop. Although he has excellent overhead lighting it does little for working under vehicles on the lift and this saves him from having to step over or around his trouble light cord. His only complaint is the light positioning is not adjustable so he must move the cap around to focus on his work area. The cap keeps his head warm without causing him to sweat when he's working in 50-60 degree conditions. He now wants the orange one for hunting season.

    We purchased this hat on a whim after looking for batteries for our flashlight. This looked easier to use. It has worked out well for walking the dog at night. It keeps our hands free. It is a good fit not loose or tight. It could be a bit more warmer. If you are looking for a hat to use in very cold conditions you may need to put a regular winter hat on top of this. Like I said it is great to walk the dog take the trash out and be able to see and have your hands free. The light is very bright. the light gives you a good viewing area.

    Keep warm and have a hands free flashlight with this beanie. Product stretches well to fit a variety of head sizes. Recovers after wearing so it does not look overstretched or worn out. Light has main switch for use and/or the quick switch. I like the quick switch more for every time use - more accessible. LED lights are lightweight and small, but deliver HUGE luminating power. If you are buying in person, make sure no one has lifted the batteries - they are provided.

    I bought this hat primarily for bike riding when it starts to get dark in the fall however it’s come in handy for a couple of other ways since I bought it two months ago. Bike riding on path in the dark - lights path at least 5 feet ahead which is great. Cleaned a crawl space and closet - it lit up the entire area so I could work hands-free. Painting as it was getting dark outside - I was able to perfectly light up area that I was painting to be able to finish a painting project (walls). Love it!

    I got this for when I go into my shed that has no lights. I just put the cap on, push the button to turn on the 2 led beams, and voila! I have my hands free to sort and grab things out of my shed without having to hold a flash light. I got it as a deal of the day and it works great. I can see myself also using it for other things as well, as in the attic or if I need to go out in the dark and need my hands free. It's made of a nice stretchy fabric. It doesnt shoot light up that far, only about 9ft or so. I haven't had to wash it yet. Hope it survives that. Lol

    The beanie is warm at least down to temps around 40°. The light is bright enough for evening walks and as a work light working in electrical enclosures. The only downside is the button to turn on and off the light can be difficult to find quickly and to press with gloves on. I end up taking it off to turn on about a third of the time, but that could just be me. Once it’s on though, it’s really handy to have the second hand free.
