I wanted a simple cycling hat to help minimize sweat from pouring into my eyes on hot days as well as to provide a little throwback cycling hat style when taking off my helmet at rest stops. This one does the trick. I have worn it on several century rides and found it holds up well and doesn't cause my head to overheat. It is very thin so I have chosen to wash it carefully by hand between rides verses running it through a machine. It drys quickly and has continued to look new.
Have worn this hat with the visor front and back. What I have found that once the hat gets soaked the visor hesitates to stay up when wearing a helmet. Even when pulling the cap down just above the eyes, and with a little cross wind, it won't stay put. However, when worn with the visor is the back, it protects the neck from the sun and seem to wick the sweat towards the rear pretty well.
This hat is perfect for rides where a bit of visor coverage is needed. The black color under the bill is much better than white. Love this cap!
This cap is great for hot weather riding. It's super thin, so breathes well. I sweat a lot and it keeps the sweat out of my eyes.
Great fit not too tight, blocks sweat and fits well under my helmet. Better than the last 3 caps I have tried
I really like this cap. It fits my head well and looks good. I wore it out on a very rainy day and hung it to dry at home. I may have bunched it up, I don't remember, but the bill is a little wrinkled. Not a big deal at all. Just a heads-up. I'm still giving it five stars.
A little spendy for a cap, but it is super lightweight and provides just what I wanted - a cap that didn't feel like it provided any insulation value but did provide a visor for those early morning or late evening rides with the sun low in the sky. Visor just big enough to keep the sun from shining between forehead and top of sunglasses.
I looked in vain for a cycling cap with a place for a woman's ponytail but I cut one in this cap and stitched around it to prevent raveling. It works and I'm happy with the results. This cap is thin and easy to wash.
I have looked for a hat like this for a long time. This is the first one that fits the bill! Just enough of a cap to do the job. I cut a hole for my ponytail and the cap stays in place perfectly. Love it!
One of my favorite caps. Traditional cotton caps were always uncomfortable to me when worn under helmet. This ones great-thin fabric and mesh takes up no room under helmet and breathes well, soft fabric feels good against forehead with no crinkled edges, smaller bill doesn't creep down or get in the way when in the drops. I wear this in spring/summer mornings when it looks like it may rain.
I use this on the hottest rides. It's not the toughest hat you'll own (mesh) but it is most certainly the lightest and most breathable.
Get one and get it on sale.
First time I wore a hat with visor as opposed to a skull cap. Visor obstructs vision and forces you to lift your head a little higher
