Top positive review
Warm, dry, lightweight and breathable.
28 November 2015
I bought the cap nearly a year ago, to wear under a cycle helmet on cold winter commutes as I've little in the way of natural insulation (bald), and was getting brain freeze and raw ears with just a helmet. The cap fits me well and covers my ears and forehead well. It's thin enough that my helmet still fits, with only a click or two of the helmet's adjuster to accommodate it. The cap is pretty windproof, water resistant and fairly breathable. It can get a little damp from perspiration, which I would expect in any type of headwear used when exercising. The inside of the cap is comfortable, with smoothly stitched seams and a soft micro fleece lining. The centre section of the cap stretches, allowing people with heads even larger than my (large) head to find a decent fit.
I've cycled hundreds of miles in all weathers and the cap shows few signs of wear, only a slightly frayed seam at the rear where it rubs on my cycle helmet.
I've also used the cap for recreational running and it performs well. It stays put and if I get too warm it slips off easily and folds down small enough to store in a pocket.
