Good idea. For years now I've been wearing a 'Panthervision' ball-cap with a pair of LEDs in the front of the brim and a couple of CR2032 batteries in the band, like this but black. I like 'em because the brim is slightly longer than many hats that style, and it adds enough light on a dark path to avoid trees and some light where I'm looking when working. I haven't tried the clip on ones, they'd probably be as helpful.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
