  • The top of that umbrella hat is an anti-wind feature, so I suspect it was meant to be used in the rain.

  • I have used these umbrella hats for over 20 years. They work great when you are walking to your car with two bags of shopping. I always take one when I am overseas in places like Thailand, prefect for heavy rain. Only disadvantage is when a stiff wind is blowing.

  • I was tempted to get an umbrella hat when I worked in a guard shack. Taking drivers info in the rain was always a pain. and wouldn't the burrito juices leak down the side into the bottom. How would you clean it out? It'd probably get stanky and moldy.

  • The umbrella hat seems like a sillier version of a traditional Japanese straw hat (takuhatsugasa or sandogasa I think they're called). I think I'd rather have the Japanese hat, though it wouldn't have as much coverage as the umbrella hat.

  • My uncle loves the glasses clip.. and I love the self stirring mug for hot chocolate only complaint is I think it will only last about a season or 2 max for most.. also self cleaning 😂 that burrito holder is ridiculous for the price. If it advertised to keep it warm.. maybe.. 😂 but I would say $10 max for all that stuff

  • Instead of the stupid umbrella hat Just buy a Sombrero and spray it with scotch guard or rainx. There is a man in town that has one that's 4 feet across, he uses it when mowing. I wouldn't use the burrito pop for it's intended use, I could see using it to keep snack or chips dry if hiking or boating. I wouldn't buy it but I could use it for other things. The mug could go in camping equipment. Most of this stuff are novelty items. Things you buy people for gag gifts.

  • The umbrella hat I can see being useful if you were hiking and don’t want to hold an umbrella. It frees up your hands. But it seems uncomfortable.

That way you got a self stirring science lesson,, The burrito thing There’s an engineering grad student that had to of had a bed with his friend that he could get funding for that burrito thing And Is Karma is karma does.

  • So the reader magnet thing. it's supposed to not let your glasses fall off to the floor when you bend over or something versus you just hanging them on the collar of the shirt., if you forget they're there which a lot of people do a lot of times that's the whole purpose. Technically it wasn't tested right ( I saw a presentation of it on TV that's how I know )

  • Can Something that useful can't be that dumb? Well in my opinion given that the wrist thing is so thick it makes it a little dumb because it doesn't go too comfortably around the ears/head area

  • I've been using the glasses clip for a couple years. The problem with hanging your glasses on your shirt, without the clip, is that if you bend down to pick up something, the glasses will fall out, damaging the lenses. The clip will lessen the chances of that happening.

  • The snap glasses would actually be really great at festivals. The burrito one could be useful. Especially if your hands get too dirty with work. Or you work somewhere that you can’t wash your hands before eating maybe? Or maybe for children that have a hard time keeping the burrito together. The self stirring mug I wonder if I could froth my milk before pouring my coffee in?

I like to know if this is "BS" claim or is it really works and is worth the purchased it is like 89.00 dollars they claim they are give a 50% discount as a US promotion. Sorry I forgot to copy the link to submit I saw it on Facebook and an ad on IRcloud.

  • OMG al are useful - number 1 the sun glasses look better than your john lennon shades! number 2 magnet holder could be used in reverse to hold your mic or hidden mic for sound recording! I want one. 3 the stupid head umbrella is perfect for a cameraman filming with a DSLR or stable osmo or go pro all hand free so they bock the sun to see the screen. Number 4 - maybe you can put a small plant in it which you dont want to destroy the roots when its young. Then screw it up lol. some plants are very wanted lol. number 5 - i want one. self stear mug is a must. for anyone who loves pot noodles! great video hope you test my ideas in a later video

So for the farmers thats a good idea to use... I ask them why they dont use a regular hat... They answered it still feels hot in the head.. and it also the co'z of Baldhead co'z the hair needs air to...

  • I'm from San Diego, CA. We have many taco shops that make burritos that would be as big as that burrito pop. When you start macking down on the burrito, the tin foil isn't enough to hold your burrito together and the liquids, so that burrito pop would come in handy. Still looks stupid, but I'd keep it in my car just for any burritos I go and buy for lunch around work

Other than that idk what else they’d be good for but the second I saw the glasses I INSTANTLY thought of SIX FLAGS ☀️ 🎢 🏖 🕶
