I have been a big fan of Headsweats hats since I purchased my first one (which I still wear) back in the summer of 2010! So it was such an incredible honor to be representing Headsweats as an ambassador for the past three years! It has been so cool to be able to test various products and prototypes before the general public. I wanted to say this before moving on in an effort of full disclosure.
Headsweats was founded over two decades ago in 1998 after its founder Alan Romick an avid cyclist, became frustrated with heavy sweat blindness. Headsweats quickly took off as their hats became a secret of the pro and started appearing on athletes at the Tour de France and Ironman Kona. Headsweats has gained a reputation for its quality, washable durability, and superior sweat-wicking technology in the years to follow.
Ever-evolving Headsweats committed to sustainability by partnering with Repreve, an industry leader in recycled materials. Headsweats even adds a tag to products made from Repreve material that lets customers know how many recycled bottles were used to make their product.
So without further a due, here are my top 3 Headsweats hats!
Crusher Hat: The crusher hat is the newest innovation to the Headsweats line. The hat’s fit and built-in sweatband are similar to their race hat. However, there are a few differences; first, the hat brim is a flexible foam material, and the back panels of the caps have large-hole mesh (Note: There are a few Crusher hats without the mesh). The crusher hat is almost a hybrid between a technical trucker hat and the race hat. Crusher Hats costs between $21-26
Cycling Cap: This hat is designed for cycling but could easily double as a running hat! The hat uses Eventure™ knit fabric; the same material used for this hat is similar to the Headsweats’ Race Hat. Additionally, the Cycling hat featured a soft bill that flips up or down. I generally wear it backward (big surprise) to give my neck a little bit of sun coverage. The hat is one size fit all flex fit and is very comfortable under a helmet. Like every Headsweats hat is machine washable and does not shrink. Cycling Cap costs between $20-22
Race Hat: The Race Hat is by far my favorite running hat, and I am not alone in this opinion Gear Junkie just awarded Headsweat’s Race hat, The best overall Running Hat of 2021 because there is a lot to love about the race hat from the built-in Eventure terry sweatband, the adjustable rear buckle with opening for ponytails. The Race Hat is Machine washable; it does say to air dry. However, I have always just thrown my race hats right in the dryer with the rest of my clothes without any issues unless you count the edges of the brim being a little beat up from over a decade of tumble drying. Race Hats comes in many different colors and designs, and some come with added features like reflective visibility stripes. Race Hat costs between $20-26
