We’re always on the lookout for what’s new in gear, which is why we got excited to find the Shapeshifter on Kickstarter. According to the description, it’s a “bendable shape-able crush-able durable super portable machine washable waterproof extra wind resistant Mega Sun Hat.” Unsure exactly what that meant, we watched the video — and we were impressed (with the hat; the video could have been a few minutes shorter). If you can make it through this slightly-too-long cheesy Kickstarter video, you will be extremely happy… because this hat may just take over the hat world.

The team set out to raise $30,000, and at the time of this posting has well exceeded that goal, sitting at just over $170,000.
