Panther Vision's 6-LED Night Vision and Navigator Caps are for outdoor enthusiasts, pilots, sailors, amateur astronomers, and anybody else who needs hands-free lights that won't spoil their night vision. The premium quality ultra-bright white LEDs produce a true white light without the bluish tinge that you get with the cheap standard LEDs that other companies use. The high beams deliver bright illumination out to at least 15 feet (4.5 m) and are visible up to a mile away (1.2 km).
- Red LEDs maintain night vision in the dark. Navigators are best for pilots, sailors, and amateur astronomers. There's no top button so that you can comfortably wear a headset.
- All six ultra-bright LEDs are rated for 100,000 hours of use.
- Two 3 mm ultra-bright white LED lights concealed under brim ("low beams") for focused task lighting (24 lumens);
- Two 3 mm ultra-bright red LEDs for focused task lighting while preserving night vision (12 lumens);
- Two 5 mm ultra-bright white LEDs mounted in the edge of the brim for distance lighting;
- Separate on/off switches for each color let you use just the white lights, just the red lights, or all of them together;
- One battery compartment holds four CR-2032 coin cell batteries housed in sweat band for the white LEDs
- Second battery compartment on the other side of the sweat band holds two CR-2032 coin cell batteries for the red LEDs
- Altogether, the six batteries deliver 50 hours of continuous use
- Velcro closure fits most heads (not designed for small children, though)
- 100% polyester (like our Runners Caps) is lightweight and water-resistant
Night Vision features:
- Green LEDs preserve night vision and assist with animal tracking, night fishing, and early morning hunting.
- All six ultra-bright LEDs are rated for 100,000 hours of use. Three white and three green LEDs are mounted side-by-side under the brim.
- Separate on/off switches control the white LEDs and the green LEDs.
- Comes with four replaceable CR-2032 lithium coin cell batteries for up to 35 hours of continuous use or 50 hours of realistic intermittent use. The battery compartment is concealed in the headband. You can get replacement batteries in most drug and grocery stores.
- One size fit most heads with a Velcro adjustment strap (not designed for small children).
- The lightweight six-panel cap is high-quality 100% brushed and washed 16x12 cotton twill with piping in the bill. It has a top button and six sewn eyelets. A color-coordinated sweat band has a foam sandwich layer for added comfort. The Panther Vision logo is sewn, unobtrusively in matching thread, into the bottom of the bill. The blank front of the cap can easily accept any embroidered logo you want to add (Curio City does not embroider or imprint, but you can easily find that service locally).
- Every cap comes with a limited lifetime warranty from Panther Vision. If your cap ever fails due to a defect in workmanship, return it to the manufacturer for replacement.

International Shipping Restrictions
In November 2012, the USPS relaxed its restrictions on shipping lithium "coin cell" batteries internationally to allow a limited number of batteries that are installed in products. We can't ship replacement batteries internationally, including to US military addresses (APO, FPO, DPO), because they are not installed in products. Some individual countries will not accept any packages containing batteries; we currently cannot ship any products containing batteries to Germany or Italy. Customers in those countries may still order our products, but we have to remove the batteries before shipping to you. Please consult this page to see your country's restrictions.
Need Extra Batteries?
Every new Panther Vision lighted cap comes with batteries installed, and they'll last about 30 hours of continuous operation. Tick the box above to add one 4-pack of Panther Power CR2032 coin cell replacement batteries each time you add a cap to your shopping cart. (If you are ordering multiple colors and want batteries for all of your caps, check the box each time you add more caps to your cart). You can find CR2032s at any store that sells batteries, but our Panther Power packages are priced very competitively, and adding batteries to your order will not increase your shipping charge.
If you'd like to be done with batteries altogether, check out our solar-powered Powercaps on the Related Products tab above.
We are not allowed to ship replacement batteries outside of the US, including US military addresses (APO, FPO, DPO).
About Volume Pricing
Volume discounts are not available while this sale price is in effect.
Cleaning Your Power Cap
Remove the batteries and hand-wash in warm, soapy water (do not bleach). Don't immerse the bill or the head band in water. You can clean the surface of the bill with a damp cloth, but keep the electronics dry. Do not machine wash or dry clean. Line dry for at least 24 hours before replacing the batteries. Don't use the clothes dryer. Do not iron. Panther Vision actually recommends placing your cap with the batteries removed on the upper rack of your dishwasher and running it on the gentle cycle. Again, be sure that it is completely dry before reinserting batteries!

I'm replacing a hat I broke when swatting a mosquito which got into my truck. This is the best nighttime outdoor hat I've ever seen. Way better than what they sell at BassPro. The green lights don't draw bugs. Great feature for spring and summer. It's a really great product. Just don't use it as a fly swatter like I did.
