This protective liner was made for athletes who want to be safe without compromising their personal style. The Skull Cap from Impact Reduction Apparel (IRA) is currently fundraising on Kickstarter. Designed to fit inside helmets and hats, the lining uses cutting edge technology to safeguard the wearer's noggin.

The Skull Cap protective liner is intended for a variety of sportsmen, from skateboarders to skiers. It's made out of materials like performance foam and impact-dispersing polycarbonate. It also has "moisture-wicking" functions, which are supposed to keep the wearer's forehead dry. The lining is durable, firm and lightweight. Its flat-pack design also means it's easy to transport.

This is not the first example of protective clothing that is also created to be fashionable, as seen with chic reflective gear or fedora bike helmets.
