Which Materials Are The Best For A Running Hat? If you're a runner, you know that finding the right gear is key to a comfortable stress-free run. One of the most important pieces of gear to consider is your running hat. Not only does a good running hat protect you from the sun, but it can also help regulate your body temperature and keep you comfortable during your workout. But with so many different materials to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? In this article, Sprints team of designers review the best materials for a running hat.
Pro’s: Polyester is one of the most common materials used in running hats, and for good reason. It's lightweight, breathable, and wicks sweat away to keep you cool and dry. It's also durable and easy to care for, making it a great choice for runners who want a hat that can stand up to daily wear and tear. This is why Sprints searched the globe for its proprietary blend of polyester used in all of its OG hats.
Con’s: Polyester is super light meaning it can sometimes lack structure (like most “adults” in their 20’s) or hold a specific shape unless it is supported by other materials (like a hat brim).
