These recyled Nylon hats are made with with Econyl, a revolutionary Italian yarn made from discarded fishing nets and reclaimed industrial carpet . Unlike RPET (Recyled Polyester), Econyl can be recycled. Nylon is also more durable than Polyester, which means not only will it keep its shape better, it won't break down and shed its synthetic fibers all over the environment. Yet its feels like a natural fabric, with a superb soft hand.
We normally will choose natural over synthetic, but ultimately, weight, durability and resilience make this fabric superior. Nylon maintains a higher degree of stability over time, allowing the hats to keep a fairly crisp shape, even after they've been beaten down. And unlike natural fibers and polyester, Nylon is impervious to mildew, which, with with well worn (sweaty & dirty) caps, will often render them useless over time. Its also breathable and drys extremely fast.
What really makes these hats stand out, though, is their weight (or lack thereof). As an example, a New Era 59/50, the official hat of Major League Baseball is nearly twice as heavy as one of our Econyl hats. Featherweight = Comfort; breathability and less sweating.
With the new Touring hats, we set out to create a new summer time standard, equal to the mesh hat in coolness and breathability but with more style and less plastic.
Built with regular stright brim and deep cut. Reinforced stayback (golf-style) mesh flap for added support in the front. Black nylon strapback & plastic buckle (Non Recyled) with built in tuck pocket make for simple adjustments for any size head. Best for Medium to XXL heads. Made in The USA
