"I first put this under Richard Rosenthal's NYT thread, but I think it deserves its own. The d3o/spyder links are particularly intriguing.

"Ok, I got a little excited about this, and called up Andre Koller, the US distributor for Ribcap hats. He doesn't have a web store up yet, but he does have inventory, and he does take PayPal. Prices are $99 for the less-ornate models (I ordered a Percy and a Janice), a bit more for the Hendrix and so on. UPS Ground shipping from California is $12.50 for the 1st hat, $2.50 for each additional. Order this week to ensure delivery by 12/25. Best, says Andre, is to check out the product line on, and email him what you want. He'll send you a PayPal receipt, you'll pay it, and off you'll go.

cautions that their hats are not substitutes for conventional crash helmets, and carry no SNELL or ANSI certification. But... gee whiz.
