Fashion: Hat: Temperature
Hot Water Bottle Hat   (+5)  [vote for, against]
Eau Chaude Bouteille Chapeau

I am informed by my significant otter that when suffering from a headache that a hot head can offer some form of relief.

Neither a regular hot water bottle, nor the floppy, wheat- filled, microwaveable things provide sufficient head coverage or heat retention in my opinion.

I propose a large, hemispherical, hot water bottle. This should prove sufficient to cover the entire top half of the head from the forehead to the nape of the neck, to provide maximum soothing power.
Given the larger surface area will probably cause it to cool quicker, an insulating layer will be fitted to the 'topside' of the hat underneath the covering. That covering will be available with a stylish range of knitted and faux fur coverings. Filler cap is cunningly concealed beneath the bobble.

(My apologies for the mangled French summary, but I like the rhythm of it)

An equivalent to a hot water bottle hat was described in this Idea. Admittedly, it had a very different purpose.... [Vernon, Sep 21 2015]

I'll have the 'Afro' covering please

Why would you put hot water in your bottle hat ?
-- FlyingToaster, Sep 20 2015

Hey [kaz], very long time no see. How you doing? About the idea. I once posted something similar but mine was a helmet for hot soup that you could wear and then eat lunch at your cubicle desk. It wasn't a very good idea. This, however, is. Yay. +

Hello [bliss], don't know what you're talking about, it isn't like its been five years. Oh wait.
I was wondering if anyone would have any prior art, I thought my searching had been extensive, but evidently not. I do tend to eat a lot of soup at work in the winter though

You won't find mine. It went Phhoof, when I deleted myself a long time ago. Or so. Still good to see you!

If you put the hat in the freezer, it will keep your head cold on a hot day.

May I suggest that your water-heated-helmet, or whelmet be segmented and or baffled so as to prevent sloshing. (+)

//for the mangled French

No problem. Mangle away - I insist.

[2 fries] I hadn't thought about sloshing. Surely it might sound like waves on the sea though. Everyone loves the sound of waves.
-- kaz, Sep 22 2015

True. Very soothing.
Sorry to hear about your partners headaches.
