Hungovraf headache cap

There’s never a good time for a migraine, but they can destroy the best of travel plans in the blink of an eye. Often stiff and uncomfortable, and sometimes even difficult to keep securely in place, headache relief hats can also be bulky, making them difficult to pack when you’re on the road.

The HungovrAF Cap is essentially a one-size-fits all, flexible ice pack that stretches 360 degrees around your head. Form fitting, it’s made of nylon, spandex, and what the manufacturer describes as a non-flowing gel.

The cap can be used warm or cold. For heat therapy you pop it in the microwave for 10 seconds. (If more heat is needed, the manufacturer recommends additional short 5 second increments in the microwave.) To use it cold, simply place the cap in the freezer or refrigerator for a couple of hours.

The HungovrAF Cap provides gentle pressure, which for some can help minimize the discomfort of a headache. It’s very soft and after pulling it out of the freezer I found it stayed cold for about 30 minutes. Being able to pull it over your eyes like a mask is a plus; the snug fit helps the cap block a substantial amount of light and noise.

The HungovrAF Cap is reportedly Transportation Security Administration or TSA approved. I didn’t experience any trouble traveling with it, but it’s important to remember TSA agents can be inconsistent from one location to the next.

The OG Hungovr Cap is available in more than a dozen colors and patterns. On the solid color caps, the logo branding is what I would describe as in your face. If that’s not your style, one of the patterned options may be the way to go. Cost is $39.99 on Hungovraf’s website. That said, the cap was on sale for $32.99 when this review was published, so it’s worth keeping an eye out for special offerings.
