POWERCAP Flashlight beanie

If you work or live in a cold environment, there is no better protection from the cold than protecting your head, a comfy and stylish flashlight beanie is a great choice. You get the benefit of having your head protected and the use of a built-in light if needed and even if your just out for a run or walk it has the bonus of being a safety feature keeping you safe from traffic.

I am a big fan of hands free lighting; like head torches, but find they don’t fit well over a hat, so a flashlight beanie is a handy option if you’re working on a car at night, playing sports, hunting, fishing or even walking your dog.

  1. Wow! I never knew these beanies existed until my niece requested one. Thank you so much for your review on the different types. The prices are also fair so she may get lucky and get more than one, ha!

  2. I like the Powercap. It’ll be especially useful to have in the vehicle and at home in case there’s a powercut or breakdown on transit. The beam looks really powerful like a headlamp.

  3. This was really cool! I use a headlamp often while riding my bike. These seem handy for colder weather and are practical. I find carrying extra things like a hand held flashlight annoying and this would be a great addition for anyone’s nighttime bike safety.

  4. Thanks for compiling this list. Flashlight beanies are the perfect combination for a hands-free night. The rechargeable one looks like it would be a great option for convenience: it’s so easy to pop in a usb to recharge a beanie. Do you know if that hat comes in colors other than black?
