Whether you use it to keep the rain off your face or the sun off your nose, a ball cap is a common uniform accessory forEMS workers. With the new Panther Vision LED Hat, you can also illuminate what you're looking at without having to hold a flashlight or put on a headlamp. Hidden in the brim of the hat are two Advanced Ultra Bright white LEDs. The lights are activated by clicking a small switch sewn into the visor on the right side. A seven-LED version has six white LEDs on the front and one red LED on the rear battery pack. A "smart switch" activates two, four, six or all seven LEDs in a variety of patterns, including "S.O.S." and a seven-LED flashing "response" mode. This high-tech hat would offer light and safety features to your bike-team members.
