Nike AeroBill Featherlight Review
If you are a runner who loves to get out and enjoy the sunshine but doesn't like to be blinded by the light, then you might want to consider the use of a running cap like the Nike Aerobill Featherlight. It has a visor to help shield your eyes from the sun, and the underside of the bill and binding are black to minimize the glare so you can stay focused on what is going on in front of you. It has a 6-panel construction with mesh panels for optimal breathability, allowing you to stay cool and dry throughout the day. The Dri-FIT fabric will wick the moisture away from your sweat, aiding in keeping you dry and fresh while you're out and about. The cap is advertised as one size fit all but keep in mind that if you have a rather large head, then this might not be the best option for you. All and all, however, customers love the hat and would recommend purchasing it.
Affordable price tag
Plethora of colors
Lightweight and breathable
Velcro is flimsy
Sizing isn't perfect
Whether you are enjoying your daily jog or you are sitting at a ball game this cap is going to be an excellent choice for keeping you cool and dry in the summer head, as well as allowing you to see better thanks to the sun protection.
It's an all-around great hat for just about any outdoor activity, whether working out and hanging out, this might be the perfect product for you.
In addition to the breathability, the hat is also constructed with Dri-FIT fabric that will wick away sweat and other moisture with ease, helping you remain dry and comfortable while you are out and about. This, in conjunction with the mesh panels, is going to be able to keep you dry. The fabric will allow the sweat to roll right off and the breathability will give that sweat somewhere to go when it evaporates, getting that moisture out of the hat so you aren't stuck running around wearing a damp cap throughout the day.
Additionally, it is not going to hold moisture like some other materials, such as cotton, might so you won't have to worry about being stuck in a soaking wet hat throughout the day. The fabric does incorporate Nike's Dri-FIT technology to help wick away moisture to give you another assurance that you'll be able to stay dry and comfortable throughout your workout.
The cap is lightweight and made of thinner materials, so it is not going to feel burdensome on your head; it will almost feel like you aren't even wearing anything. The adjustable strap on the back ensures that you are going to get a fantastic fit so it will sit on your head comfortably. And, the mesh vents ensure that the hat is well ventilated, allowing a decent amount of air to flow into it, keeping you cool and comfortable.
In addition to keeping you comfy, it will also help prevent some discomfort throughout the day. Mostly thanks to the bill and the excellent sun protection that it offers. It's going to keep the sunlight out of your eyes so you can stay focused on what is going on in front of you without the distraction of the blinding light in your eyes. It's also going to be able to keep some of the harmful UV rays off your skin, giving you an extra layer of protection between you and the sun.
That being said, it does come with an adjustable velcro strap on the back that will allow you to adjust the size you need for the perfect fit. For those consumers who have an average sized head, there should be no problems with how this fits. In fact, customers have stated that they love the feel and fit, saying that it is perfect for them.
The hat has a circumference of about 23 inches and a 3-inch brim.
The one problem that some customers seem to experience with the cap, however, comes with the adjustable strap. Some reviewers have mentioned that the velcro, after a while, will lose some of its stickiness and will stop attaching, causing you to either repair the strap or replace the hat. This isn't a problem that all customers have, but it is something worth noting when planning on making this purchase.
There are a plethora of color options that you can choose from when you buy this hat, although, all of them have a black underbill and binding so it can reduce the glare from the sun while you are wearing it. The hat is available in active fuchsia and black; black-volt swoosh and volt yellow; black, black, and volt; black, black, and white; blue jay; blue jay, white, black, and white; crimson tint and black; game royal and black; game royal, black, and white; grey and white; gym red, black, and white; half blue and black; hyper cobalt blue and white; igloo; mang; midnight navy, black, midnight navy, and white; obsidian, black, and white; obsidian and white; purple slate, black, and vast grey; racer pink and black; racer pink, black, racer pink, and white; still blue; team crimson, black, and white; turquoise and white; university red; university red, black, and white; vivid sky and black; volt; or white, black, and black. No matter what color you choose, you will get the iconic Nike 'Swoosh' front and center for all to see.
For the most part, customers really like the classic look and style of the cap. There are so many color options that you are sure to find something that calls out to you. Some consumers even choose to get more than one, so they can have it in multiple colors.
Most consumers were satisfied with the price they paid and said that the running cap was worth the price they paid for it.
The brim is only 3 inches, but it will still help protect most, if not all, of your face from the suns rays. You will still want to wear sunblock, but this is going to give you an extra barrier between you the UV rays that can damage your skin.
