All seriousness aside, I recently stumbled across this lighted hat that might actually have some value for ourdoor adventurers:

Also available from Home Depot.

Franky Dawg:
Just get the Photon Freedom Light. You can clippy it to any hat (including winter cap).

And apparently cheaper also!
How about this one:

I carry two of the Photo Freedom lights w/me backpacking. Only lights I carry.
0.8 oz. for the two. No way I'd buy the hat light b/c:
a) the hat sux
b) the light isn't very versatile
The other light isn't as versatile as the clippy one I have... and weighs more.
Might as well go with one of the multitude of led lights out there with
1000 bells and whistles (literally).
(there's some really good ones out there)

I too prefer the little clip-on led light. It's the only light I carry while backpacking.

Dawg,
When have I led you astray?
You should put those lights in a pair of Darn Tuff socks above the fireplace.

Darn Tuff socks save me sooooo much money!

Only downside is the light is so small I've left it clipped inside a tent or
bivy sack many times... forgetting about it... thus another reason why
I bring two.

Perhaps the perfect gift is a pair of Photon Phreedom lighted Darn Tuff socks! Guaranteed for two lifetimes.

For someone not on a budget, a $104 cap.

I'll order one right after the day I begin tipping hot dog vendors.
