The Mission Darkness™ EMF Blackout Beanie is a comfortable shielded beanie perfect for everyday wear. It’s lined with two discreet layers of TitanRF™ Flex Faraday Fabric, an electromagnetic frequency (EMF) shielding material that has been lab certified to confirm shielding effectiveness standards IEEE 299-2006 (see report below). This material provides a barrier between your head and harmful electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and radio frequencies (RF) coming from mobile devices, cell phone towers, smart meters, and other outside sources. The beanie is breathable, lightweight, flexible, and fits all head sizes up to 22.8in (58cm) circumference. Fold-over cap style allows you to roll the top to achieve your preferred fit. A sleek patch with the Mission Darkness “MD” logo is sewn on the front. Wear during travel, while on the phone, at a workstation, or any location where you want to reduce your exposure to EMF.
We included a faraday testing pouch constructed out of TitanRF™ Flex Faraday Fabric (the same shielding material used in the beanie), so you can use the Mission Darkness app to test the signal blocking capabilities of the material yourself! A fully enclosed faraday cage (like the testing pouch) is required to perform the test.
As cell phone and electronic device capabilities increase, so does the amount of EMR/EMF they emit. Your daily routine likely has you exposed to staggering amounts of EMF, which can be absorbed through your body and harmful at certain levels. The truth is that the long-term effects of high frequency signal exposure, from sources such as 5G radiation, are still unknown because the general public has not been exposed to these types of frequencies for long periods of time. This is why so many people are incorporating shielded clothing, rooms, etc., into their lives—they would rather be safe than sorry.
We are doing our part to offer shielded solutions for this preventative measure. You cannot always control the radio frequency signals you come into contact with, but you can use barriers like shielded clothing to reduce your exposure. The high-shielding fabric used in this beanie is backed by years of signal-blocking excellence.
Individuals react to EMF differently and some require protection from various frequencies that surround them in everyday life. The stylish and shielded beanie is designed for individuals with EMF sensitivity, health concerns, as well as the growing population seeking to reduce their exposure to EMF/EMR. Little precautions, such as wearing shielded clothing, can make a big difference in EMF protection.
The package includes a faraday testing pouch constructed out of TitanRF™ Flex Faraday Fabric (the same shielding material used in the beanie), so you can use the Mission Darkness app to test the signal blocking capabilities of the material yourself! A full faraday cage, like the pouch, is required to perform this test. Read the testing instructions for further details.
Testing Completed by Keystone Compliance Laboratory on October 7, 2020
IEEE 299-2006 is the standard test method for measuring the effectiveness of electromagnetic shielding enclosures and materials. The TitanRF™ Flex Faraday Fabric is advertised as a material that can be used to block the frequency range most mobile devices and electronics transmit/operate within. To provide validation for this claim, the shielding effectiveness test measured how well the fabric shields frequencies between 1.5GHz to 40GHz. The positive test results provides authentication of its shielding abilities.
Mission Darkness™ offers a growing line of EMF radiation shielding apparel and home interior products. The main function of the shielding apparel line is to offer a barrier between your body and harmful electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) and radio frequencies (RF) inside your home, office, and public places, such as those coming from cell phones, laptops, Wi-Fi routers, smart meters, 5G cell towers, and additional sources.
Similar to how our faraday bags block signals from penetrating, shielded apparel uses the same materials to prevent signals from reaching your body. Please note that blocking EMF requires the same materials (faraday fabric) as blocking signals, but not the same construction methods. To effectively block signals like cell and Wi-Fi, a fully enclosed faraday cage is required. This means you would need to COMPLETELY cover your body with fabric, with no openings, to block these signals from reaching you. It’s impractical to do this for daily life, so the next best option is to reduce EMF by covering vulnerable areas with the same materials. This beanie includes faraday fabric that can completely block signals, but you cannot test this capability without a full faraday cage. For this reason, we included a testing pouch built with the same materials to demonstrate the signal blocking properties of the material in your beanie.
