SO hard to find decent cycling caps..

I've put it through the wringer
True to size

But this one fits the bill, so to speak. I tend to like wearing hats under my helmet in the winter, as it helps keep the noggin warm and the visor is handy when the sun is low in the sky in winter months. Trouble with most cotton hats is that either the bill is too big, the fit is too small (almost every hat except Giordana and Assos), and in either case they often never fit well after the first wash or the elastic will wear quickly. But Gore has managed to fix most of these issues by using a different material. Washes well, doesn't shrink, and has enough room to stuff my long hair into it.

I love my Gore C5 Light bike cap. It keeps the sweat off my face as I cycle through the scorching temperatures of a Phoenix summer. Plus, I feel like I am preserving the inside of my helmet that seemed to be getting too sweat-worn prior to getting my cap.

Do you have long hair? If so, is it comfortable.

Too small for bigger heads

My hat size is comfortably somewhere between a 7 5/8 and 7 1/2 depending on how much hair I've got and this C5 cap is uncomfortably too small for my head. Putting it on makes my head feel like circulation is restricted.


How is the sizing? I've got a large 7 1/2 noggin.

Thank you for your question, Andrew. The sizing on this cap is a little on the smaller side, but i would love to get you to some more measurements! Please feel free to shoot me an email at krakowski@backcountry.com and i would be happy to help you out!
