Deceptive.  Simple looking cap.  But the fit and feel, with its amazing breathability and lightweight construction.  It obviously vents.  It also draws sweat from your head and evaporates it like crazy.  Folds easily and packs well without awkward bending or creasing of the peak, thanks to its foam construction.  Superb.

Patagonia say:

Airy, crushable-yet-resilient, and back by popular demand: The Duckbill Cap pairs an open tricot mesh and Supplex® nylon (now using updated Baggies™ fabric) for the reflective coverage of a running hat with the heat-dumping functionality of a visor. The short foam brim shades your eyes without blinding you to overhead branches and bounces back to its shape after being folded in the pocket of your Strider Pro shorts. A COOLMAX® headband wicks moisture and a slim rear buckle adjusts the fit.

A request from our ultra-running ambassadors, who asked for a breathable cap—the Duckbill is back in a lightweight Supplex® nylon. Details: Hat folds and packs easily.

Crown and brim: 4.3-oz SUPPLEX™ 100% recycled nylon with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

Panels: 4-oz 100% polyester warp-knit tricot mesh.

Headband: COOLMAX® fabric.

Fabric is certified as bluesign™ approved
