Comfy but brim hangs low

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I used this for the first time today, it's an insanely comfortable hat that keeps me really cool. However, the brim hangs really low when I have my helmet on and I put it down. Otherwise it's nice, maybe your helmet will be different.

Long bill.

I like the fabric on this cap as it's super light and vented. I probably won't actually use it for training or racing road though as the bill is too long for my preference (I tilt my head down on the road). Will likely only use it mountain biking or commuting in the Texas heat.

Product is Dirty with grease stains

    Returning cuz I don't want an item that is already dirty. This item arrived with black greasy stains.

    keeps sweat at bay

    • Fit: Runs large

    A bit too large, though.

    Too big

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    This is a nice cap. It works well to keep sweat out of my eyes (and I sweat a lot), and is mostly comfortable. On long rides (i.e., >60 miles) I start feeling the band, but it doesn't leave marks. The part that I don't like is that it is not form fitting on my head. I wear a medium helmet and this is loose on my head. Does the job but doesn't look cool. Still, would recommend for large helmets.

    Great Hat

    • Size Bought: The only size

    Lightweight. Perfect for the heat and keeping the sweat off your forehead and off you helmet. No real complaints about it. Fabric reminds me of a hot weather base layer.

    Great Hat!

    Much cooler and dryer than a traditional 100% cotton cap. Use it mostly to keep the sweat out of my eyes on hotter days and it does a great job.

    Nice understated look that will match pretty much anything. I attached a photo of the underside of the peak in case you are a peak up type of rider and are curious.

    Great Hat!

    Great hat for all kinds of weather

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I have used this cap from the 50s into the mid 80s and it does what it is supposed to do! I am looking forward to using it when it really heats up here in the Sacramento, CA summers.

    Loved it!

      You don't feel it! It is very light and comfortable! I bought it because I have a shaved head, it protected my skin just like expected it to and the sweat wasn't dripping into my lenses either. Loved it! I'm just waiting to get a bigger order to order the white one.
