Wore this for the first time tonight whilst running in not very pleasant weather. Did an excellent job of keeping the rain and hail off my face and is very comfortable to wear. No rubbing and didn't get too hot.
Keeps head dry in the rain. Peak keeps rain out of face. A great product.
Ifs great, just what I needed for a rainy run
Well I have never worn a cap 4 running until now. This product is mega lightweight & fits snug on my head,with great adjustment from the strap at the back. Most of all the peak is solid so as the wind pass through. Winds were really strong today & it was solid on my head. Sweat problems :None as the hatvis so thin & breathable fabric,that there is no heat build up. I would recommend to anyone wanting to change. By the way yes definitely the cap is a great umbrella keeping most of the rain water off me.
entirely waterproof, not too warm in summer, very strong peak and good stable adjustable strap make this cap not only very useful but it is unique in my experience!
Ive just done the great scottish run 10k. Its in Scotland - it rained...a lot! This cap kept my head bone dry, kept rain and sweat out my eyes and didnt make my head hot at all. £7.99 was a bargain and my friends are all heading in to buy them too
Easy to wear and effective in rain and sun. Folds to put in pocket in case of need
The cap excells in
-keeping rain out
-keeping solar rays from hitting the top of you head
- does not warm up your head
- sufficiently light and stowable save the peak part, the tissue of the cap itself folds nicely with the peak and can be tucked away in flat pockets without deformation
What could be improved:
-sizing, i have a small head so the velcro is not having a lot of overlap and the non-attached part keeps swinging around
-with strong gales or gusts of winds the cap my fly of your head. Maybe the cap should be designed so it holds slightly more volume, wrapping better around the head.
-despite that it is a rain cap, the addition of (detachable) neck piece for protection of the neck against solar rays or rain
would certainly further enhance the functioning of the cap
Conclusion: very good cap at a price no other product can compete with
Having been soaked twice on recent runs I decided I needed a hat that could not only keep off the rain but also stop me overheating at the same time. I'm happy to say this hat does both. It's extremely light but keeps off the rain and most importantly wicks away the sweat which helps contribute to a comfortable and enjoyable run even in inclement weather. For the price it's excellent value. On the strength of this purchase I also bought the normal Kalenji running cap that I wear for all of my long runs as it keeps the sun off and again wicks away the sweat.
I bought this cap to wear on the Manchester marathon as the weather was unpredictable and I was unsure if it would rain or shine, fortunalely it was good weather and the cap was excellent providing shade and keeping my head cool due to the thin material my head didn't sweat. the cap can be adjusted with the strap at the back and the peak provides good shade for the eyes but also good visibility. the price was very reasonable and the cap was easy to pack and carry in my jacket.
