Sap Cap – Protect yourself with a baseball cap


The Shomer-Tec Sap Cap may look like a regular baseball cap, but it’s really a self-defense “weapon” that you happen to wear on your head. The fact that it looks exactly like an ordinary cap means attention won’t be drawn to it. Hidden in the back is a special pocket that holds a pouch of metallic micro-spheres that have the density of lead without being toxic. When you need to use the cap for self-defense, the bill becomes a handle of a non-lethal blackjack style weapon. The Sap Cap is one size fits all, is only available in Black and is priced at $29.

    I’m pretty sure this won’t get through the airport scanners. And, is it machine washable?

      @VernC I’m not sure if the hat is washable. I’ll have to contact them to see if the pouch with the metal beads is removable. As for not getting through airport scanners, the solution to that is to not wear it to the airport…

        Here’s more info:

        On the Sap Cap, the pouch which contains the proprietary metallic materials is sewn into the back portion of the hat. Although it could be removed, it would involve ripping out the hat’s stitching. If the Sap Cap must be washed, it should be done by hand and not machined washed.
