About this project
Somebody might say that it`s a specially designed hat for bouncing electromagnetic waves and radiation. But is it really so? Yes, it reflects signals from cell phones, wi-fi routers, microwaves and it generally blocks waves transmitted from electric devices. It`s not blocking for 100% percent, but better than nothing. Moreover, it looks really cool! It is one of the most comfortable and functional headwear you have ever worn.
We know that we need to say something more about the technology and design to grab your attention and trust, so here we go. To achieve the signal proof quality we use unique fabric (pure silver) which is antimicrobial, antiodor, washable and was originally produced for military purposes and we put it between the hat`s layers.
With the help of experienced fashion designers and by using the high quality processed cotton, special signal proof fabric (100% silver coated shielding fabric) and original production processes we achieved a really beautiful and handy result affordable for everyone.
One day we had a conversation with my cousin. He talked about one night he could not fall asleep and thought it might be caused by wi-fi or cell phone signal. He said that he would appreciate something that protects his head during the night. Then we started to think. What if there is a grain of truth in this story. Our bodies are exposed to a variety of signals the whole day - cell phones, wi-fi, satellites, tv and radio, microwaves, electric devices, lights or heavy doses of cosmic rays during the flight. It`s not a long time ago that new kinds of signals appeared and have become a part of our households and ordinary lives. You can care about switching off these devices when you do not need them but your neighbours might not.
We are not saying that it protects 100% against all kinds of electromagnetic waves that are bad for your health, what we are saying is that if you care about yourself, be smart and put on this first signal proof apparel instead of the usual one - no one will spot it and it will protect you.
We have two types of headwear - a beanie and cap. The headweare comes from authentic design and comfortable materials. It is unique as it features special integrated signal proof fabric. Yet, you cannot find anything inside by looking or touching the hat. The headwear comes in several colors, sizes and types, so everyone can choose.
------ Shield The Beanie ------
The classic and the most universal one. It`s made of high quality cotton which guarantees warmth in winter and a pleasant feeling during warmer days or in the room temperature.
Sizes: Newborns (0-6 months), Kids (7 months to 5 years), Teenagers (6 to 15 years), Adults (16 and up years)
Colors: White, Light Grey, Dark Grey, Black
------ Shield The Cap ------
We are starting with two types of cap. The popular snapback and the classic baseball cap. The signal proof fabric is sewn inside with such precision that it can not even be seen.
Types: snapback & baseball cap
No matter if you are a newborn, kid, teenager or adult. No matter if you live in the northern countries or on sunny caribbean islands. No matter if you wear a cap for walking, running, sleeping, hanging out with friends or during the flight.
Shield offers the right headwear suitable for every situation. You do not have to be paranoid or into conspiracy theories. Just take our signal proof hat and reflect electromagnetic waves.
There are plenty of advantages offered by Shield Headwear. In addition to being the one of the most beautiful, comfortable and signal-proof hat in one, it also has some unique characteristics which can be reached by our know-how in manufacturing. There are plenty of features in one hat.
Our headwear is antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiradiation, antiodor, antistatic, and radar and infra-red invisible. It has electric field shielding (EMI), radiofrequency shielding (RFI) and microwave shielding. The signal proof fabric is fully washable with easy maintenance and safe for direct skin contact; not to mention the fact that kids love it and never complain about having something on their head.
We studied many situation when people wear a hat and are exposed to electromagnetic radiation at the same time. Shield is generally designed for casual wear because it looks awesome and you can protect your head everywhere where there are some electric devices.
But there are a few special situations in which our headwear is very handy and desirable.
- Having newborn - Newborns wear hats outside and inside regardless of the weather, so why not replace the ordinary hat by a signal proof hat.
- Sleeping - If you sleep with a hat, you can change your old one for Shield. You will be protected against signals essentially one third of a day.
- Travelling by airplane - A/C in planes can be really annoying and sometimes painful. If you want to stay in comfort, just take our hat to the plane and feel comfortable during the long cold flights.
- Work with transmitting devices - You have the office job, right? So you are supposed to work with computers. Most likely you have a corporate wi-fi network. And here we are: electromagnetic waves from screens, computers, wi-fi routers and probably neon lights as well are attacking you everyday. We bet you are asking now the question, should i wear a hat in my job, indoors!? I am not a nut! Yes, it would look quite weird, but not if you work with these devices for example as a technician on daily basis.
- Doing sports - Do you run, ski, hike or just walk? All these sports require a hat in the cold weather. It doesn't matter if you run in the city or in the country, you are still exposed to signals. In the city, pitfalls are lurking in the form of electric wires, cell phones, screens or wi-fi hotspots and in the country you are still part of the planet earth so you can not avoid satellites and devices above your head. If you don't mind that, you can wear Shield just because it's damn comfortable and you look pretty sexy.
- Going out - It`s a cold friday and you are going to meet your friends in the city and maybe you will be hanging out together a little bit. This is the situation in which you are likely to grasp a hat. And we said that Shield is the comfortable, stylish and signal proof hat.
You can take just one beanie or cap, but you can also take two, four or the whole collection. The more you take, the better for you. Or you can even become our distributor and you can get hundreds pieces straight away. After the end of the campaign you will be asked via email what color and size of headwear you want. To learn about the prices, please see the pledges.
It`s a very simple. We are here for the same reason like everyone else. We need to raise money to make the production real, improve existing technology and design new apparel. We have already found the right technology and design. We have the final working hats and we need to spread it all over the world.
And don`t hesitate to share our story! Sharing is simple and means the world to us! Please post links or comments to our campaign anywhere on the web. Please share with anyone you know that might be interested in our product. When you share our story it is extremely valuable to the future of our product and we are extremely grateful. We want to create the best product available for our community and most importantly YOU are backer.

How it looks and works
Risks and challenges
As we said. We have already found the right technology and design. We have the final working hats and we need to spread it all over the world. We calculated our expenses from one piece to hundred pieces. We spent a lot of time to find the most effective way of shipping and fulfillment and we finally found it. So we don`t see barriers in technology or financial issues.
The roadblock may be the idea as well. Many people don`t care about electromagnetic smog or they just live in warm weather and they don`t need to wear a hat. And many people don`t believe at all and they are strictly against signal-proof idea. But everybody has the right not to believe. Event it`s not proven, we believe that occasionally or daily wear of these signal-proof hats can be beneficial.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Yes it works thanks to the special shielding fabric. Generally it can`t completely protect your head against signals because it should be covered from the top to the bottom. The shielding fabric is tested and it blocks the electromagnetic radiation - no all kinds of them.
We are not saying that it`s proved or we should be scared. There is no official evidence that signals cause something. Just google it or check it on youtube there are plenty of documentaries which are dealing with this topic.
Our hat is not the improved version of "tin foil hat". It`s inspired by actual situation and studies. Until now, we`ve known the waterproof, windproof or dustproof feature. Now it`s time to introduce the signaproof feature to the fashion. And Shield is more beautiful and comfortable hat that tin foil ;)
No, it definitely doesn`t.
Many people are asking about signals that come through other parts of head and hit the inside of the reflective cap, then pass back through the brain a second time or stay inside and multiply their power - This is ridiculous. The signal is not a bullet and the hat is not a miracle. It`s like giving a question, "why do i feel cold in my winter jacket, it was supposed to protect me against cold and it comes thorugh my sleeves, top and bottom parts." Nothing is one hundred percent and everything depends on other factors. But in any case, you are not going to freeze in that winter jacket ;)
No. Faraday cage works also without ground connection. And they are also not amplifying without earth bond.
