Scalp and face shade without hot, stuffy cotton fabric.

The sun beats down on your summer hike and you want to shade your face and scalp, but not at the expense of melting your brain. Thanks to lightweight nylon and webbing on the Kavu Synthetic Strapcap, you get face shade without an overheated head. Black coloring underneath the Synthetic Strapcap's bill reduces glare, while the fabric dries quickly after a light rain shower. Webbing varies on each hat.

Perfect Summer Hat

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

Great lightweight hat for hot summer days! Adjustable to fit various head-sizes and a nice, clean style. I ordered the Pyrite color, which is slightly less yellow in color than the photo shows, but still nice.

My new favorite hat

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have a really hard time finding hats that will fit, cause my head is massive. I love wearing hats though, this is the first hat to actually be a Large when advertised as a large, fits me perfect with room. Very comfortable fit

You'll Forget It's There

    Bought the orange version of this hat and it's a very nice product. It's light, breathes well and keeps sweat from rolling down. My head doesn't heat up on the sunny hiking days and the brim does a great job of keeping the sun out of your eyes. It looks as good as it works. I'd recommend this hat.

    Kavu strapcap will get you laid

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

    I don't normally wear hats since I have long hair, but I wanted something lightweight and breathable (why do hats always make your head HOTTER?) that was durable for camping and climbing and had that outdoorsy look. I ordered black and my band was a cool blue and white design (it seems it's luck of the draw what type of band you get as mine is a different color than the picture, still looks awesome tho). When my GF saw me in the hat she asked if I could take everything but it off..... So if that interests you I'd get this hat. My only gripe is that there isn't a little hole to tuck the tightening strap when it's long, so it either hangs down or you have to tuck it in.

    Sweet hat

    Perfect for the Utah heat. Feels more like wearing a headband.

    Cool Hat for Hot Days!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I picked up the Strapcap in the Pyrite color. The material on the hat is lightweight, water-wicking, and durable. Already battle tested with some rain and it kept my head nice and dry. The material is thin which makes it a great lid for warm days. The bill design is long enough to keep the sun out of your eyes for lots of hours in the day. Not exactly a hat I would wear casually but if it's anything from hiking, fishing, or climbing; you can bet what will be on my cabeza!

    Cool Lid

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

    I really like this hht and cannot wait to put it through the ringer once the spring comes. My only complaint is that the front headband folds when you put it on, sometimes. It would not hep me from getting this hat. I am already thinking of getting the camo color.

    Lightweight cap

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Great cap. The material is lightweight and very tough. The brim is sturdy and the whole thing packs very small. This is the second Kavu cap I've purchased; I bought the "strapcap" (with side mesh) eight years back and it is still in great shape. I hike and run in SoCal/Arizona and these are perfect.

    What kind of material is it made of? I'm...

    What kind of material is it made of? I'm interested in a baseball style rain hat for ocean kayaking. If it's really raining hard I'd put my rain jacket hood over it. Quick drying would be good. Is this my hat?

    If I was Obi Wan Kenobi, I'd wave my hand and say, "this is the hat you are looking for." It's made of nylon. Spray it with Nikwax TX Direct spray-on DWR and it'll be perfect for you.

    GREAT HAT

      LOOK LIKE THE REAL THING, EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT.......
