Our headwear will help protect you in all outdoor conditions, including hot, cold, and wet weather. Our hats are also versatile and make great options for a variety of activities ranging from running to training to swimming, so you can tackle any workout ahead of you.
What Are the Benefits of Training With a Hat?
For some athletes, wearing a hat or visor may be a personal style choice meant to pull together their workout outfits. But there are a wide variety of other practical benefits to wearing a hat, visor, cap, or beanie while you train. Read on to discover these great perks:
One of the most significant benefits of training with headwear is the sun protection that hats offer in hot weather conditions. All of our lightweight running hats and training caps include UPF coverage against the sun, keeping you safe from scalp sunburn and excessive heat.
The brim on both running visors and hats will help block the sun’s rays from getting in your eyes, reducing distractions and allowing you to focus on your run or workout. This can be especially helpful for trail runners.
The last thing you want to have to worry about during your trail run or outdoor workout is your hair falling in your face or sticking to the back of your neck. All of our headwear options will help hold your hair back and allow you to focus on your training.
All of our cap options, including the Run Cap, Packable Run Cap, Multiply Cap, and Light Speed Cap, have an adjustable strap and back hole for ponytails to go through if desired to help keep longer hair off your neck while doing your sprints or a leisurely jog.
Protection Against the Elements
The brim of all of our unisex hats and visors will help shield your face from light showers or rain so you can run with minimal distractions and vision issues. Our beanies and winter headband will help protect your ears from harsh winds and cold temperatures so you can comfortably conquer your winter workout.
Their soft material will also aid in keeping your head warm. Options include the Run Beanie, the Ignition Beanie, and the Ignition Headband.
Speed and Protection - Swim Caps
Swimming with a swim cap provides a wide variety of benefits that will help you reach your peak performance. Swim caps will help hold your hair in place and prevent it from getting in the way of your strokes, reduce surface drag so you can swim to the best of your abilities, and help keep your head warm in cold waters.
Our options include the Silicone Swim Cap and the Propel Neoprene Swim Cap, which is designed to maximize warmth. These caps are perfect for recreational swimming, open-water swimming, and triathlon training and competitions.
Fun Colors and Styles
Wearing a hat while training can also boost your confidence and make your workout more fun. Our caps come in a variety of both muted and bright color options, so you can find the perfect finishing touch to your training outfit.
