Anti-UV fabric plus neck protection offer the best defence.
Water repellent fabric prevents water from seeping in during brief showers.
Ripstop fabric resists tearing.
Remove the neck protector to convert to a classic cap.
One size. This cap is suitable for head sizes 52 to 60.
What makes a cap “UV-protective?”
UV protection standards for hats and caps are very specific: Using anti-UV (UPF index greater than 40) fabric is not enough. The back of the neck must also be protected and have no visible openwork fabric through which the sun's rays can penetrate.
This Trek 900 cap meets these standards, so you can hike with total peace of mind: you are perfectly protected!
Water repellence or waterproofing, what is the difference?
Water repellence is the ability to make water form droplets on a surface. The faster water runs off without soaking a fabric, the more it is water repellent. The cap does not soak up water and stays light.
Even in a major rain shower, water will not build up and soak into the cap.
On the contrary, waterproofing is the ability to NOT allow water (rain, snow, dew, damp, etc) to penetrate.
How to reactivate my cap’s water-repellency?
A treatment applied to its outer surface makes a fabric water-repellent. To maintain performance, however, this treatment must be applied regularly using products sold in our stores. To reactivate your product’s water repellency, once it is dry: iron the affected areas (temperature <140°C), tumble-dry (suitable temperature and duration; do not over-heat), or use a hair dryer.
