A hat like this is a simple thing. It seems. But not really. The purpose of this cap is to be compact enough and light enough to be able to be stored un-noticably in the front long-zip pocket of any of an Aerostich (or other) riding suit or jacket, so when your helmet comes off you can protect your head, and shield the sun from your eyes. A more substantial cap like the #653 Performance cap wears just as fine, and looks just as good, but does not have the ability to crunch down to almost nothing for pocket-storage like this one. There are lots of trucker caps in all kinds of different fabrics and styles and weights. We tried many before deciding this was the most compact-able. Keep the sun and rain out of your eyes and protect your scalp. Adjustable. Ultra-fast drying 100% microfiber. Black with almost black logo. If you travel light, and want a hat along, packed in a pocket or tank bag, this is the one.

- My Go-To HatReview by Michael
- This is a great hat to throw into a tailbag or pannier. I have one in every bike I own. It's very light and collapsible, so it packs neatly. It's an unstructured cap, so it doesn't look like it was smashed inside a tailbag, even when it was. Being follicly challenged, I need a hat when off the bike, and this one works well and looks good too. (Posted on 9/7/16)
- Dorky!Review by Randy
- Maybe the first baseball cap I've ever had that just doesn't do what a baseball cap should. I've had great difficulty reshaping the brim, and it doesn't fit well. Looks completely dorky. It is very light, but I'm sorry I bought it. (Posted on 7/15/15)
- Aerostich Emroidered Logo Cap #658Review by stephen
- Very nice, lightweight, folds very compact. The bill is reinforced but lighter than what is usually found in ball caps. The adjustment is via a belt/plastic buckle, very effective. This hat will travel well in my tankbag. (Posted on 3/6/13)
- I purchased the 48" B&W p...Review by Ed Kenlon
I purchased the 48" B&W pano (Doug's shot) and it's a real conversation starter for a variety of reasons. Many people have not seen a *REAL* pano (Photoshop only). Others express amazement that there are such cameras in existence that still work. And then everybody asks questions about who, what, when, where and why (especially about the happy face puppets). I give them the condensed answer -- "Just because."
But here's what you want you really want to know -- It's a great shot !!! (Posted on 11/3/08)
