Ultralight Cap!
May 10, 2011

I love this cap! It's light, less than 2 ounces. The inner band is comfortable and wicks moisure well. Fabric on top is stretchy and breathable. My favorite feature is the foldable brim, easy to stuff in your pocket. The OR label on the front is a little loud, but it and the back band is reflective. Highly recommended!

The lightest most breathable hat
September 05, 2012

Got this for my husband during the run of over-100 degree days this summer (unusual for this area). He already had an OR cap which is great, and he wanted something lighter and more breathable. This hat fits the bill, and truthfully he hasn't taken it off except at family dinners and when it gets washed... He loves it.

Pros: Great design, Performance

Just right for running
November 22, 2012

This hat fits well, folds easily for storage, is lightweight, and coordinates with other orange running gear in my collection. My only negatives are that the adjustment band doesn't slip easily back into the hat and that it's not made in the good old USA

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: foreign

Great hat, as advertised
April 09, 2011

I purchased this hat looking for something light weight to keep the sun off my (balding) head. The hat is great, super light weight and fits in your pocket easily. While not ugly this hat is clearly more about function and utility then style. Great for adventure travel and packing light.
