a good choice of cap

This cap exactly fits my bill in terms of use. Light, thin, easy to pack,wash and dry... Price is reasonable too. The only small concern is the tightening band. It just appears so narrow and weak to stand longer time tear and wear. So far so good though having use it for 15 times.

Cómoda y transpirable

La verdad es que no notas que la llevas puesta pues se adapta muy bien y es muy cómoda,además transpira muy bien por la cantidad de agujeros que lleva.

Je suis satisfait…

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 15% Spandex
  • 85% Polyamide

Inner fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic

Isn't my cap uv proof?

Don't worry, the fabric used for this cap blocks UVs with a UPF over 50 (therefore excellent protection). Of course this isn't the case for the side panels, which are perforated; we cannot claim that the cap is fully UV proof.

Why do we say that polyamide is more resistant?

Polyamide offers excellent abrasion and tear resistance. Furthermore, this synthetic fiber is not susceptible to microorganisms or mold.

How do you measure a fabric's quick dry 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 under 80 minutes after immersion!
