Featuring a versatile design and back stash pocket for small essentials, the high-performance shade maker Men's Paddler Cachalot from Columbia Sportswear takes on sun, heat, and raging whitewater all in one go. Made from a light, quick-drying, Omni-Freeze® cooling fabric, the Paddler Cachalot provides full sun coverage for long hours on the water with a customizable neck flap that can wraps all the way around the face and secures with Velcro. Because it’s hard to reach your pockets beneath your spray skirt, we’ve added a handy stash pocket at back crown for those small but essential items. Omni-Shade® mesh vents keep the cool air flowing through, and an adjustable drawcord can be tightened to the perfect fit with the toggle at center back.


  • Fabric: 100% polyester pique, 100% textured nylon poplin, 93% polyester/7% elastane, 50% polyester/50% recycled polyester
  • Omni-Shade UPF 30 sun protection
  • Omni-Freeze advanced cooling
  • Omni-Wick® advanced evaporation sweatband
  • Pre-curved visor

the cap is one size fits all. however, i wear 7 1/2 cap size and it runs tight on my head. i wouldn't recommend to anyone with a larger size head. also, columbia decided to use single stitching instead of double stitching the velcro on the fabric. after a few uses, the stitching on the velcro unraveled.

Pros: Performance, Cons: Wears quickly, Cost, Poor quality, fits tight on larger heads
