Favorite Bicycling Cap
I think I may have discovered the best cycling cap available. For most of you a helmet is enough but for those of us who need sun protection in a vented helmet the right cap is important.
The Headsweats Race Cap has everything I've been looking for in a under helmet cap. It has a soft skin friendly feel and mesh construction that breathes well and feels good. It is made from CoolMax and has a CoolMax Terry Band that keeps the sweat out of your eyes on warm days. This material doesn't feel like any CoolMax I've ever encountered before. It has a very light soft mesh, breathable feel, not at all like the the plastic bag feel I have come to associate with CoolMax. CoolMax is not hydroscoptic so it won't hold moisture and get heavy as you ride and it dries quickly.
This Cap is lighter, softer and breathes better that the Patagonia Running Cap that I have been using. It has a short bill that protects your eyes from rain and glare and an adjustable clip in the back. The clip is small and you can't feel it with your helmet on. I like the ability to open the clip and use it to attach the hat to my helmet or bike when I take it off.
Great hat, highly recommended. You can find on the web at Amazon.com or Bike Nashbar for about $17.
