All Wet In Your Hat

Linda Cook and her son Kevin Pringles won $10,000 in an Arizona U contest for their prototype Hydro Hat, a hat that uses water-absorbent crystals to keep the wearer cool. Give it a 30 minute soak in cool water, and the hat’s hydrated for three days.

Once they’ve perfected it, Cook plans to market the Hydro Hat to construction workers, postal workers and the military.

Hartford York Hats - Men's and Women's Wigens Cotton Bucket Cap - The UppsalaI’ve had my own low-tech version of a hydro hat for years, invented when I forget to remove my bucket hat when jumping into the lake. Of course, it doesn’t stay wet for three days and I’m just guessing that the cooling system of the Hydro Hat doesn’t include a soaked head and rivulets of water running down your face. But, then again, maybe it does.

Thanks for reading,
