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.
"…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."
"Much better than ear warmers / headbands. great styling"
