Why should I have headwear on while running?
Running headgear is important to protect you against the temperature. However, what type of headwear is suitable for you depends on your location. In warmer weather, wearing a running cap wicks moisture from your head ultimately keeping you cool by evaporating sweat. It will protect you against the cold wind. Hats also aid in keeping sweat out of your eyes. Wearing a hat is one of the greatest ways to stay cool no matter what time or place you opt for jogging.

Criteria when looking for headwear:
Shape and Aerodynamics:
When it comes to hats, most runners don't consider aerodynamics as important. In most circumstances, it would only make a minor difference in effort. But it is crucial for serious athletes.
Adjusting your cap according to the size of your head keeps it from falling in between the run. Most of our hats are adjustable, but check the details to be sure.
You might think flexibility in a hat doesn't matter much, but it does. Especially if you are packing light or don’t have much space left in your luggage for the headwear.
