A request from their ultrarunning ambassadors who asked for a breathable cap—the Duckbill is back in a lightweight SUPPLEX™ 100% recycled nylon. Hat folds and packs easily.
Airy, crushable-yet-resilient and a timeless favorite, the Duckbill Cap pairs an open tricot mesh and SUPPLEX™ nylon (using updated Baggies™ fabric) for the reflective coverage of a running hat with the heat-dumping functionality of a visor. The short foam brim shades your eyes without blinding you to overhead branches and it bounces back to its shape after being folded in the pocket of your shorts. A COOLMAX® fabric headband wicks moisture, and a slim rear buckle with elastic adjusts the fit.
