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
Having been soaked twice on recent runs I decided I needed a hat that could not only keep off the rain but also stop me overheating at the same time. I'm happy to say this hat does both. It's extremely light but keeps off the rain and most importantly wicks away the sweat which helps contribute to a comfortable and enjoyable run even in inclement weather. For the price it's excellent value. On the strength of this purchase I also bought the normal Kalenji running cap that I wear for all of my long runs as it keeps the sun off and again wicks away the sweat.
I bought this cap to wear on the Manchester marathon as the weather was unpredictable and I was unsure if it would rain or shine, fortunalely it was good weather and the cap was excellent providing shade and keeping my head cool due to the thin material my head didn't sweat. the cap can be adjusted with the strap at the back and the peak provides good shade for the eyes but also good visibility. the price was very reasonable and the cap was easy to pack and carry in my jacket.
This cap is brilliant. It has a nice long peak which has kept even the heaviest rain off my glasses when i am running. Excellent value. Good quality and fit
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.
