Brim/Visor short

Overall the cap seems to be small. Well ventilated. The Brim/Visor is short compared to other caps. If that is something you don't care about this is a good buy for the price.

Men Beware this hat probably wont fit you

While this hat is one size and adjustable for circumference of your head, It is not very deep sits like a beanie on your head. Sits about an 1 1/2" above the tops of my ears. Can hardly get it to stay "caught" on my head. Would be perfect if it fit. On hat I typically wear hats sized S/M or M. So I should not be pushing the limitation on this hat. SO DISAPPOINTED....

Great lightweight hat

Love these hats. They are lightweight and a good quality for their price. I buy multiples and use them for jogging and hiking.

Great cap

I have a few of these. Survives the wash well.

The plastic catch broke while I was adjusting it when I first wore it... its a pity as the cap itself is really good

I like the design and weight of this cap but the quality of stitching and the adjustable lock to loosen or tighten the cap is dreadful. It doesn't hold in place for long

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 100.0% Polyamide ; Yoke: 100.0% Polyethylene Terephtalate

Is my cap anti-uv?

Although the main fabric offers good protection against UV rays with a UPF greater than 50 (only allowing one fiftieth of the sun's rays to penetrate), under current regulations this cap cannot be regarded as anti-UV as it does not cover the back of the neck and because the vents are made from openwork fabric which does not block out UV rays.

How do you measure a fabric's quick drying capacity?

The product is machine washed 3 times, then line dried, then we immerse it in water and measure how long it takes to get back to its pre-wash weight.This cap scored an impressive 5 out of 5 stars, returning to its pre-washed weight less than 80 minutes!

The crosshatch fabric offers additional resistance

The crosshatched fabric is a mesh-type fabric. The warp and weft design helps ensure durability and prevent potential tears and stop tears. It is therefore particularly durable compared to a smooth canvas, for example.

Product testing

The entire design team had the opportunity to test this cap during frequent excursions in the Mont Blanc mountain range, where Forclaz – Decathlon's backpacking brand – has its offices.
