Video: Would You Trust Your Life to a Bulletproof Baseball Cap?

Meet the BulletSafe Bulletproof Baseball Cap. Visually, it’s pretty hard to tell from a distance that this cap actually has a small bulletproof plate directly in front of the user’s forehead—this is one cap you won’t be wearing backwards.

But does it work? And even if it stops the bullet, what kind of damage will be inflicted to the poor test dummy’s head? Well, according to BulletSafe, it actually should be quite safe.

“The amount of energy in a handgun round is high, but not as high as some people seem to believe,” the company stated in its Kickstarter campaign. “A .45ACP has about 450 Joules of energy. A hockey snapshot has about 240. So the amount of impact you would feel is on the order of twice the impact of being hit in the helmet with a hockey puck. Is that enough to give you a concussion? Maybe? It is certainly in that range, but a concussion would be a welcome outcome when compared to the damage a bullet would do to the same area without protection.”
