User Review: Trailspace Trail Runner Cap
Fabric: nylon with poly mesh
Price Paid: $18
I received this hat today - just in time. The weather was forecast to be in the upper 90s, and I had about 4 acres of grass to cut. With no hat to wear, the timing was perfect. Field test? You bet.
First of all, I was pleased with the quality. I've owned runner's caps before, and some were flimsy and cheap. Not this one. Well built, and made of quality grade materials.
The first thing I did after donning my new headpiece, was adjust the backstrap. Happily, I was able to adjust it small enough for my little noggin. There is ample length in the strap though, to fit a WIDE range of sizes.
As I worked I was, every once in a while, reminded that I was wearing vented cap when a nice cool breeze filtered through the mesh. The terry sweat band worked great, absorbing all the perspiration I could give it. And the brim is just the right length to keep the sun out of my eyes, without being too long like one of those fly fishing hats. The dark under brim cuts glare nicely.
For outdoor work, backpacking, hiking, flatwater kayaking, and even under a climbing or bike helmet, I see this cap becoming my new summer favorite.
