Headgear for that coal miner look

You may look like a twit, but it could help out in an emergency

Millets

We know that stranger things have happened, but let's hope that headlamps don't become a fashion trend. We're a bit worried after having just seen a 24-LED version a few days ago, only to find another fetching piece of illuminated headgear pop up on in the gadget blogosphere. Shiny Shiny rightly notes that "you'll look an absolute twit" wearing one of these items from the U.K.'s Millets outdoor store but, if you do happen to get lost or fall into a ditch, its flashing mode would probably come in handy. Or you could just put it on and stay at home.
