Helps you see and get the jump on lurking predators, stalkers and/or those annoying FBI tails. Night model would have a small, low-intensity light attached. A lightweight, reflective convex mirror on a collapsible arm to wear while walking, bicycling or jogging. Mounted to a hat or headband. Also helpful when checking people out after you walk by without being totally obvious.

       Attachable rear/side view mirrors are quite common for for cyclists, less so for pedestrians. Mine clips onto my glasses, where I can pretend it's part of a servo-actuated weapon targeting system.

       sure a must buy. I hate when people walk from side to side without turning their heads. Then i would buy a headlight to flash and pass them. I hate walking slow

       I believe the Vicar of Nibbleswicke, in the Roald Dahl book by the same name, he wears something similar in the end so he doesn't wind up saying "Please don't crap on the side of the road" to the entire church".   

       Could you turn it around and blind the person you're talking to?
