New Balance 5-Panel Core Cap

Here is a quick product feature from New Balance and a very affordable cap option to keep the rain, sun and sweat out of your eyes.

The New Balance 5-Panel Core Hat is a very affordable solution to additional on-the-run coverage from excessive sun or light rain. Designed to wick excess moisture to quickly dry and keep you cool while keeping sweat from your forehead and eyes.

The Core hat is a well priced kit item and is perfect to have in your transition bag in case the sun or rain comes out. In use the hat fitted well and was easy to adjust and was very comfortable. The velcro rear fastening made it easy to tighten when the wind got up. It works well in the warmer months as the material is suited for wicking rather than keeping the heat in. The cap has washed well after some sweaty use and remains in shape and ready for the next run.
