The NFL draft hats this year will feature the reflective 3M material made popular by Nike and Jordan Brand shoes.  3M developed the technology, named “Scotchlite,”  in an attempt to provide both visibility and fashion in multiple weather conditions.

The material is designed to reflect light in an attempt for increased visibility.  On the NFL Draft hats, made by New Era, the technology will reveal a mosaic of each teams name and logos when exposed to light.  On a night that camera flashes will most definitely be in abundance, the incorporation of the technology seems like a no brainer.
