Cap #128 is sewn up from an easy-care 55% wool 45% polyester and is machine washable. The earflap is US-made polyester Power Dry grid fleece in black — the same stuff that the US Army uses for base layers (GEN III ECWCS*) Both fabrics wick superiorly, feel great next to the skin, and will let just enough air in to prevent over-heating when riding. Stay nice and warm without getting sweaty and gross. 46 grams.
I’ve put a 3-4″ sliver of 3M reflective tape in the back left seam for visibility for times when you don’t have your head armor on.
All seams are serged with a double row of stitching and rough edges are encased with black 3/4″ cotton twill tape. There is a stretch of elastic in the back for snug fit. The 5cm deep brim is filled with a very durable polyester fiber stiffener to give it shape and substance. It is still crushable if it needs to be stowed, and easily re-shapable. The cozy, wicking polyester stretch fleece earflap can be pulled down over the ears in chilly weather, or folded up and out of the way. Great ear coverage. The cap can be worn under a helmet when the earflap is down.
Cool/warm machine wash or hand wash, shape, dry flat, warm iron.
