Heady and ready.
Nothing says that you're a cyclist like Giro's Classic Cotton Cap. On or off the bike, this cap offers a bit of shade from the sun, a cover from wind and rain, and a layer of insulation when it's cool. It also wicks sweat when the heat rises.
The Giro Classic Cotton Cap is one-size-fits-all and is available in the colors Black/grey, Black/white, White/black dot, and White/black/grey.

Great looking cycling hat
This cap fits great and looks good as well!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I have a fairly big head, so I was worried about the OSFA, but this cap fits great. It definitely helps on chilly rides, but also does the job keeping sweat out of my eyes when it's warmer. And best of all, it's stylish enough to keep on when popping into the store, or yes, the coffee shop - better than walking around with helmet hair. Very comfortable, and will probably buy a few more.
I'm a big bike hat guy and wear them often. So, I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to fit and function. This really is a classic. The bill is just the right length. Flips up and stays in place. It's not too shallow or too deep...though that can be a personal pref due to head size. It's plenty durable and has held up to multiple washings without any noticeable fading or stitching breaks. It's made form the standard heavier than t-shirt-closer to canvas cotton, but breaks in nicely.
A surprisingly handy bit of gear
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
A cycling cap is as classic a part of cycling as a frame pump. Even though I can't endorse wearing a cycling cap to coffee shops, that extra layer on your head and visor over your eyes really helps as it gets a little chilly or the precipitation starts to fall. Cycling caps don't work great with all helmets, but its nice to have the option. Giro's cap is as good as any, and has great styling to boot.
