Solar-Powered Turbo-Fan Safari Hat


The safari hat enters the 21st century not with a bang but with solar power.

And don't get me started raving about the stylishness of this creation, with its strategically-placed solar panels right up at the crown of the hat for maximum photon absorption.

No sun?

No problem: it's got a battery back-up (2 AAs, not included).

"A small fan directs a constant cooling breeze to your forehead."

"One size fits all with adjustable comfort liner."

"Perfect for the sportswoman who has to keep her cool."

Don't tell me you're still thinking about it: once this goes up and around the world, this puppy'll be sold out like that.

$39.98 here.

I'll bet Philip Treacy is green with envy.
