Ive just done the great scottish run 10k. Its in Scotland - it rained...a lot! This cap kept my head bone dry, kept rain and sweat out my eyes and didnt make my head hot at all. £7.99 was a bargain and my friends are all heading in to buy them too
Easy to wear and effective in rain and sun. Folds to put in pocket in case of need
The cap excells in
-keeping rain out
-keeping solar rays from hitting the top of you head
- does not warm up your head
- sufficiently light and stowable save the peak part, the tissue of the cap itself folds nicely with the peak and can be tucked away in flat pockets without deformation
What could be improved:
-sizing, i have a small head so the velcro is not having a lot of overlap and the non-attached part keeps swinging around
-with strong gales or gusts of winds the cap my fly of your head. Maybe the cap should be designed so it holds slightly more volume, wrapping better around the head.
-despite that it is a rain cap, the addition of (detachable) neck piece for protection of the neck against solar rays or rain
would certainly further enhance the functioning of the cap
Conclusion: very good cap at a price no other product can compete with
I like running in the rain but prefer to keep it out of my eyes. This cap fits and works well and is very good value for money compared to other brands. Well done Kalenji.
A very useful cap for moderate to heavy rain, especially as I wear glasses. However there is a trade-off between being waterproof and condensation forming on the inside. Would probably use an ordinary cap in very light rain conditions.
Waterproof and lightweight
some condensation inside after a 5k run
A good productuj
Good fit, understated looks and functionality.
I bought 2 of these rain caps, for my other half and myself. They sit comfortably and the Velcro strap holds well, even when I secure it around my running belt when its not needed. The peak of the cap does a great job of keeping the wind and rain out of our faces!
Light and great value for money.
Nothing bad to say.
