Slap Hat Extreme Self Defense Cap:

This standard baseball cap is one the most simple, least noticeable, and efficient personal defense items on the market. The secret of this hat is a pocket of unique impact material that is 100% the density of lead and which is sewn into the cap. Simply use the bill as the handle and the cap becomes an instant impact weapon to be used against a threat. Simple, fast, and effective! The cap includes Velcro adjustment to fit all sizes.
$20 at Amazon. Via.

Keep the ResQMe in your car in case you ever need to cut your way out of your seatbelt and break the window in your car. $10 at Amazon. Via.


  1. have a look at http://ifttt.com/ you can then set a rule that puts your starred google reader items somewhere - email, delicious, dropbox...

  2. That key chain isn't a bad idea at all, and look like it would make a fine gift

  3. After a personal tragedy, I bought a ResQMe for myself, my sister, both of my parents, my boyfriend, and his brother and sister in law. I recall finding some deal on amazon where I bought 2 at a time and they came out a little cheaper. But $10 is still quite affordable compared to what you'd pay for much larger items of similar function that'd be easier to lose in the jumble of a car.
