A warm alternative to cold, hard helmets...

Say good-bye to big, clunky helmets and say hello to a protective hat that’s good-looking too.

A friend of mine just introduced me to this innovative new product called the Humpty Hat.  (An unfortunate name, I agree.  Who wants to be reminded of Humpty Dumpty’s fall from the wall?)

Although it ostensibly looks like a simple winter cap — a cross linked polymeric foam insert cushions the skull and brain.

It’s designed so that the padding conforms to the various lobes of the brain, a feature known as “anatomic mapping”. The frontal, temporal, parietal, and occipital lobes of the brain and the overlying skull in these areas is protected  by the specific placement of these foam pads.

Although it was created for winter sports such as skiing, there’s not much difference in the damage you can do falling down a slope or falling on the floor.  Plus, it's warm and comfy in the winter, light enough to roll up, stick in your pocket and take wherever you go.

It’s a neat option to consider.  And you’ve got to admit, options (especially when they’re attractive) are GOOD!
