An Innovative Head Protection Beanie

Delloch has released its new product: a head protector as a beanie. The beanie’s purpose is to confer a dignity upon the wearer who might otherwise feel self-conscious being asked to wear a bike or rugby helmet in public. The beanie’s insides (protective inserts) are filled with pliable polyethylene closed-cell foam and are sewed into the bean; the foam is unseen beneath the beanie fabric and it will stand up to washing.
