We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

The best hat I've ever owned
I searched high and low for a light, moisture wicking, athletic hat that didn't stain or fade. I purchased one from Lulu L*m*n and the shape was awful and generally very uncomfortable. The Airshed cap is everything I was looking for in a hat. The quality is impeccable, it is comfortable enough to wear anywhere, and it dries very quickly (I swe... Read Moreat a lot). I will buy this hat for as long as they make it.
Love this hat
I bought the Airshed hat for the color. Most of my backpacking gear is gray to blend in with the Sierra granite but some time you might want or need to be found, so I needed something bright. But I am loving the hat in general too and I am not a hat person at all, preferring visors. Air just seems to flow through this hat and it is light, almost u... Read Morennoticeable, to wear. It's a one-size-fits-all and so a little loose on the smallest setting but it stays put anyway and there is no constriction. I'd definitely recommend it and might even have to buy another in the blue.
The best hat I've ever worn. It looks awesome, it feels comfortable, and it stays in place. I initially purchased to use as a running hat but I've adopted it for daily wear. Head never gets itchy with it on and I can wear it all day with no discomfort. More colors and patterns would be cool!
Fantastic daily cap
Other than the logo being too small and to high on the front substrate of the cap, it fits well, breaths well, and cleans well. I bought it because of its use of recycled plastics and I dont know if I will ever buy another cap other than this one again. Recommendation: make a five panel version and you would have a ton of orders for this fantastic ... Read Morecap material line.
This hat has worked great for running, keeping the sun and my hair out my eyes, it is breathable comfortable and light, the only improvement I can think of is to somehow make it more washable, with sweat it get mucked up after 6-mos or so and it does not come out of the washing machine well, or maybe I just need better instructions for washing
Nice Fit, Breathable, but Color Fades Fast
I purchased this cap in black. It was great for long runs. I noticed the black began to fade after only a couple of weeks of sun exposure. After hand washing a few times with mild soap, I have noticed the black has faded into a dark brown hue. It is fine for running but will not match other garmets that are closer to true black. For the price, I wa... Read Mores hoping the aesthetics would last longer. I still love Patagonia, but this product wasnt a win for me.

I love everything about these hats (I bought all the colors), but the cinch tab in back is about 1 too short. Great material, solid color choices, well constructed.

Limited circumference adjustment
Overall this is decent hat. It's volume is somewhere between the full on trucker and the low profile options. As others have mentioned, the available circumference adjustment is quite limited towards the larger size. I've had to extend the velcro closure to the last few strands to get the thing on, and at that, it's still a tight fit... Read More. Thanks.
This is the first Patagonia hat I have purchased from the website. The hat breathes well and dries quick. It is very light, and I cant wait to take it on more adventures.

It would be awesome to see Patagonia bring back the sized strapbacks like they had in the hats in the late 2000s (Ex. size Sm, Md, Lg strapbacks) as well as those basic dad styles as well! Looking forward to see what Patagonia has in store in the future!
Not for larger heads
Was a nice enough hat, but didn't fit. I wear 7 5/8 size hats and like them slightly loose. Hat barely fit even with the strap all the way loosened. Also that while the fabric is lightweight, it didn't have much in the way of ventilation aside from a few small holes. Wasn't really able to evaluate breathability though because of sizi...

Thanks for the feedback on sizing; we'll definitely pass this along to our product designers, Mike! As this Airshed Cap is a "low crown" fit, you may prefer the slightly roomier "mid crown" fit of some of our other [hats](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-accessories?prefn1=fit&prefv1=mid-crown). Please reach out to our Customer Service if you'd like assistance to return your cap.
As soon as I saw this online I purchased it. I have to wear hats that do not have mesh in the back as I shave my head and get sunburn. But my other hats are heavier material and I sweat like a pig. NO MORE! Honestly though. If you want a nice lightweight hat that breaths extremely well and looks good this is it. I have also cleaned it a few times a... Read Morend it has held up well. You do have to force the strap through the tiny hole a bit to hide it. That and the price (but you get what you pay for) are my only small gripes.
Tried this cap after being impressed by the utility of Patagonia's Airshed pull-over and found it also to be a valuable addition to my gear inventory. The adjustable sizing allows the cap to be worn tight enough for cycling activities and running in windy conditions. It provides useful sun protection without blocking ventilation or accumulatin...

I've never written a review before but am very impressed with this hat. I bought it to replace a cotton ballcap for running... the cotton hat was a stinky mess, not matter how it was "cleaned." I've used this Airshed hat now for ~2 weeks straight, in 60's to mid-80's F temps, and no smell, wicks nicely, and breathes...... Read More it's great.
New Go To
I have a TON of hats from active-wear to more dresses up needle point caps. This Airshed cap is something else. It breathes better than other athletic hats I have and keeps it shape like a trucker cap. I purchased this model in black because I feel the smaller box logo isnt as in your face as other Patagonia hats and the color goes with everything.... Read More This hat has become my new main stay. It is definitely worth the price. Only problem is my girlfriend keeps stealing it because she likes it so much too. I guess Ill have a to get her one now!
Extremely comfy and big plus for able to fit smaller head
I used to wear my trucker all day everyday and love it (Casual, hiking..). However, the crown is still a bit too big for my small head and it is not the most breathable when my head is heating up. Saw this airshed cap came out recently and decided to give it a try. It is super comfy and fit my head perfectly. Also love how they use the soft, moist... Read More wicking material on the adjustable strap instead of the plastic one which is not the best when sweating.

This cap killed my airshed pro pullover
This is a cool cap. Easy fitting, good looking and super breathable. I pair it up with my airshed pro pullover for my everyday wear and running. They work so well together at the first week. Then in one warm day I try to take off my airshed pullover with my airshed cap still on. The magic tape hooks at the back of my airshed cap scratched along the...

A Trail Runners dream hat
Patagonia once again blows me away. Ran with this hat during my first 100 miler this past weekend. From the light material yet sturdy fit, this is the best hat I have ever ran with. Patagonia takes pride in their products and it shows. Incredibly functional. Dont waste your money on other hats, this is all you need.
Great stretch fit cap replacement
I was very bummed that Patagonia discontinued the P-6 Stretch Fit Cap a couple of years ago. I’ve been looking for a replacement since then and I think I’ve found it! This hat is more comfy than the discontinued stretch fit hat and the low profile shape on this one looks and feels better, IMO. The material also seems like it would be a much better...
