About this project
We're excited to share the Lumativ Snapback with the Kickstarter community! This hat is like nothing you've ever seen. The Lumativ Snapback catches everyone's eye with it's premium design, superior fit and custom illuminated designs. Using light as a third element of design, the snapback features the latest state of the art lighting technology, powered by a lightweight rechargeable electrical system that's literally fused within the hat itself.
Comfortable, stylish and user-friendly, the Lumativ Snapback takes wearable technology to a new level. Wear it like a typical hat during the day, and at night it comes alive! With the flip of a switch you can quickly turn your hat ON/OFF.
When engineering the Lumativ Snapback we incorporated the design elements we felt were essential for an everyday hat: high quality, stylish and comfortable. These were core principles that we are unwilling to sacrifice in order to implement the technology. The snapback keeps it fresh and is adjustable to any sized head. The modified brim provides a premium look, straight or curved, forward or back.

RECHARGEABLE | The Lumativ Snapback charges with any standard USB port. We wanted the Lumativ Snapback to fit into your lifestyle. What do you charge more than anything? Your cell phone. So we decided why not charge it exactly like a cell phone. Use the provided micro USB cable to plug your Snapback into your car charger, wall charger or even laptop. The Power Chip charges in about 30 mins and then you're ready for a full 8 hours of light!
USER FRIENDLY ON/OFF | The user friendly design allows you to turn your snapback ON/OFF without it leaving your head! A low profile custom designed switch located on the left side of the hat with a raised LUMATIV logo allows the user to quickly turn their hat ON/OFF whenever they want! It's as easy as that.
STATE OF THE ART LIGHTING TECH | What makes our light so different?Unlike other lights with a single point of light, our light creates an even, luminous energy. Visible from and extreme distance and bright enough to find the lock on your car door. The light is even noticeable during the day and in brightly lit rooms.
CUSTOM 6 PANEL DESIGN | A new design for a new kind of headwear.A major step in the design/proto phase was finding the right hat design. We felt a hat featuring this advanced technology deserved a specialized design and premium quality. Our custom 6 panel construction and ergonomic brim create a sophisticated style.

Why we need your support
Over the last year and a half we have personally funded the designing, testing and prototyping to build the Lumativ Snapback to where it is today. What started as a small project has grown as we've poured energy, effort, blood, sweat and tears into creating something that we feel is truly unique.
The Lumativ Kickstarter project provides you the chance to pre-order the Lumativ Snapback. The funds you pledge will be used to directly fund the completion of this project. Purchasing the materials needed to manufacture your hats as well as buy equipment needed to manufacture efficiently and at a large scale. It will also allow us to open a manufacturing facility right here in Southern California and create jobs in the U.S.A.!
This is something we really believe in and feel it is the future of fashion. We’re so excited to see where the light leads us! Thank you for the support Kickstarters!

Risks and challenges
We feel that over the last year we have tackled some major challenges to build the snapbacks to where we stand today. Although there are challenges and risks with any product, detailed pre-production and planning can dramatically decrease these risks. We have worked hard over the last 8 months to develop strong working relationships with our vendors and manufacturers.
The crucial step in our prototyping phase involved going through a complete manufacturing cycle. It took 6 months working with our hat manufacturer to come up with an approved prototype. We're pretty particular.. At one point we locked ourselves in the shop for a week straight designing the hats. What can we say, we are tech nerds!! We're proud to be able to say we are now at a point where we can launch a full production.
Due to the intricate nature of the manufacturing process, and because we're making a product that is one of a kind in it's design and technology, it does take longer to make than your average hat. Our production timeline is 4 months. Due to this extended timeline delivery of good purchased by pledging on Kickstarter will be delivered May 2013.
We are confident as we move forward and excited to offer the Lumativ Snapback for sale for the first time!
The hat is water resistant. You can wear it in the rain they have been fine. However the hat is not waterproof. It cannot be submerged in water. Do not jump in the swimming pool with your hat on... Treat it like your other electronic devices..
If you have selected a pledge level with multiple color options then a survey email will be sent to you after we reach our goal. In this email you will provide your color selection as well as shipping information.
We are capable of manufacturing the LUMATIV Snapbacks with different light colors and designs. However, at this time we are only able to offer the color options shown in the pledge levels due to minimum order quantities with our factory. These hats aren't the simplest things to make.. Help support our cause and we’ll be able to manufacture them in more colors and amazing designs very soon!!
