Headlamps are great; they offer hands-free lighting for everything from basic camp duties to changing gun accessories or undertaking field dressing at dusk or dawn. But when you prefer to wear a ball cap, headlamps are awkward. Enter the Gerber Myth Baseball Cap Light. Like the name implies, this light is designed to clip directly to your ball cap visor, thereby solving the headlamp dilemma. By clipping directly to your favorite hat’s visor, the light beam is unobstructed and can be directed where you need it.
Two brightness settings—low and high—help you regulate burn time. The low, 5-lumen setting offers a healthy 15-hour burn time and is great for near-at-hand tasks like rifle or bow adjustments. The high, 12-lumen setting has a 5-hour burn time but casts a broader beam for keeping track of the trail or searching for your downed game in low light. The third setting, a 9-lumen green spectrum light, is designed specifically to offer stealth lighting when you need to see your equipment but don’t want to give yourself away to the whitetail or wild boar you’ve been tracking. The green beam is less likely to spook your game and offers better, less visually impairing light for nighttime tasks.
Simple, one-button operation makes using the light a cinch—just press the top-mounted button to toggle through the three settings. The button’s soft rubber engages a positive click that works great with gloved and bare hands. Keeping with the simplicity theme, the light operates on two flat watch batteries that serve to keep its weight at an impressive 2 ounces—about the weight of a car key.
You don’t need to worry about the light falling off while you tromp through the woods or look down from your tree stand perch thanks to its adjustable metal clip that rotates 90 degrees to cast the light where you need it. The Myth Baseball Cap Light is lightweight insurance that you’ll have the light you need to read a map, adjust equipment and, hopefully, dress your kill.
