The Rapha Winter Hat

Winters are hard in Belgium. An ice-cold wind from the North Sea blows across the plains and murs, carrying rain and sleet. This classic, Belgian-style cycling hat has been designed with such conditions in mind. Worn under a helmet or on its own, the Rapha Winter hat will keep you warm and may even increase your training miles.

The hat is made from brush-backed, stretch Sportwool™ (61% polyester, 25% wool, 14% elastane) giving great insulation. A soft mesh lining wicks away perspiration to improve comfort. The seven panel design gives an excellent fit, and one size fits all. The ribbed ear guard gives added protection and can also be folded up for an authentic Freddy Maertens look or wear the hat backwards like Rapha Condor’s Dean Downing.

Reviews:

"…knit from sportwool, a synthetic/wool blend that doesn’t itch, but is stretchy and comfortable. The one-size-fits all cap isn’t too snug on your head, avoiding the squeezy feeling you can get from some synthetic cycling caps (and keeping your coiffure intact)."
Andrew J. Bernstein, Bicycling

"…Rapha’s typically understated branding gives a really classy feel."

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Quality but Small! I love Rapha styling but form certainly give's way to function with this hat. One size fits all is a bit optimistic - in my case it's too small. I was surprised to hear from the customer service rep that she had not heard of any sizing issues, even though I found several complaints about the hat being too small on their own site. It's too bad I didn't read the reviews before ordering...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice hat, but too small for most Nice hat, standard Rapha quality (i.e. Excellent!) but really small. I don't have a big head, but its super tight, a few stitches popped first time I put it on, and leaves a serious "dent" in my forehead. Baggier and more Belgian would be better

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tight I have only worn this once, it did keep my ears warm but was tight and left a mark on my forehead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice hat after initial break in period This hat is very comfortable and toasty warm. I wear it primarily for mountain descents when the temperature is below forty degrees farenheit. Very secure, the visor stays put in thirty mph breeze and glasses fit comfortably under the ear flaps. For hard riding I find it too warm for anything above freezing. My only complaint is that it was pretty tight on my head to start. After stretching out the elastic band a bit the hat feels and looks great on my head. Overall great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved design Through the years this model has developed into a great product. The outer shell is tight and more wind and water resistant than a traditional merino weave, while the inside is still soft. The bill (UK: Peak) size is perfect. As I wear prescription glasses that sit on the inside, the ear flaps are placed just right to allow my glasses in and tighten any gaps around them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hat. Slightly iffy quality control. For riding in winter, this totally does the job. It's comfortable and warm, and the 'straight-out' cap peak keeps any rain off your face better than a normal cycle cap. The only thing with mine was that the Rapha logo was annoyingly off-centre. I ordered one for my wife too, and hers wasn't like that. I considered sending it back, but I thought I might be nitpicking. Still, if I'd paid full whack for this, I wouldn't be happy. Part of getting rapha gear is it looking the business, not looking a bit wonky.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks great - a little tight I bought this last month because I enjoy cold weather riding. It's warm and stylish. I was a little surprised at how tight it is though. It fits, barely. Unfortunately, I'm left with an indentation around my forehead from the hat. It remains for hours. A little bit of stretch, would have went long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm head! Bought this for my commute in 5º and below (any higher than that and you'll boil in it). Keeps my noggin toasty for the hour commute. YOU SHOULD NOTE THAT THIS IS A HAND WASH ITEM ONLY THOUGH. Not a major but a hassle if you need it clean for the next day. Size is okay I have a 59cm head, it loosens up after a few uses - first few wears left that lovely hat line on my forehead - a winning look if you have early morning meetings!

I have an extremely small head for a grown man (6 5/8in, 53cm). Do the women's caps fit smaller than the men's? I ordered a men's last year that was way too big
