Outdoor Research Swift Cap Review
Outdoor Research is a company that is driven by its passion for getting out and experiencing nature. After a mishap on a glacier in Denali in 1981, founder Ron Gregg decided that he was going to devote his life and work to his passion for adventure. He started the company with the thought in mind that the best gear will make your outdoor experience more fun, and thus the brand was born.
They strive to not only create new equipment or something different but to make a superior product, something that is better than the rest. They wholeheartedly believe that life gets better as soon as you walk out the door, thinking that if they can get more people to appreciate the adventure of being outdoors than the world would be a better place.
The Swift Cap is just one of their many products that customers love. This hat is designed for anyone who loves to be outside, used a lot by runners, boaters, and beachgoers. If you are doing it outside, you can be wearing this product. It is super lightweight and allows for some fantastic airflow, keeping you cool and comfy throughout the day.
It wicks moisture so you can be sure to stay dry, no need to walk around with a soaked and smelly hat. The lid has an affordable price tag that sits about average with other similar products, but this one is highly durable, allowing it to stand out above the crowd. Coming in a plethora of colors and one size fits most (thanks to the adjustable backstrap) there is sure to be a cap that suits the style and personality of the everyone.
If you like to be outside and want a hat that will keep you cool and look great then look no further, the Outdoor Research Swift Cap might be just what you are looking for.
Affordable price tag
One size fits most
Variety of color options
Light colors show dirt
Thin and flimsy materials
The cap also features moisture-wicking technology in the way of the TransAction headband. This is going to help your sweat from your head roll off the hat and allow it to evaporate quickly, aiding in keeping you cool throughout the day.
There have been a couple of complaints from people stating that the lighter colors show dirt easily which can look messy. The hat can be washed, however, so this should not be too much of a problem.
The hat itself has the Outdoor Research logo embroidered on the front panel in a thread that compliments the overall color of the cap. It has a shaped plastic-stiffened bill and an adjustable back strap with a quick release buckle to ensure you get a great fit. The sides and the back are made out of mesh materials and come in a different color than that of the front panel, made of nylon, and the bill. Each hat is dual colored for an aesthetically pleasing look.
The Swift Cap has a shaped bill that will help shield the sun from your eyes, which can help keep you safe while you are running, or participating in a workout outdoors. It is going to ensure that you are able to see to the best of your ability so you can avoid any hazards that might pop up while you are outside.
