Design wise, I like the idea of a simple design, black/grey/white type thing. Like you say SCR on the bill would be cool. Maybe some old style writing? Like to point out i'm also not very creative...


Yup I started wearing them recently when I got 3 free from Vermarc. All team ones though so hard to match with kit :D

Rapha design looks nice

It does but I have a big head so while it fits my wife it doesn't fit me.... hurrph

How many do we need for a bulk order?

@ Sketchley almost any cap would fit under a helmet fine as long as you don't already just barely fit into it.

I'm not wedded to them, its just the first manufacturer that I've seen that produce what I'm after. Just had a quick look at Shutt and they only do a cotton cap (for £25). Vulpine have something more along the lines that I'm looking for, but £25 before any customisation. Happy to give them a call to see if there's anything they can do, but its likely to end up at 2-3 times the price of the US offering.

Please let me know if you can find someone this side of the pond who can do a wicking cap for a reasonable price that we can customise.

Ah ok had a look at pricing

http://www.walzcaps.com/walz_custom_pricing.pdf

From my completely uninformed opinion it seems like silk screen is the way to go?

$30 set up fee if it's just 1 colour logo (white logo on black cap for example).

$15 per cap if there are 12-23 caps.

$12.50 per cap if there are 24-149 caps.

So we already have enough for an order. Looks like we should aim to get 24 people involved if possible.

Just over $17 each with 14 of us, or $13.75 if there are 24.

You can never have too many caps.

Edit: Oh, and what sizes area available, Rob? The only ones that fit my melon properly are the LMNH ones.

Cap styles and sizing guide at http://www.walzcaps.com/caps_moisturewi ... panel.html

While I'd like to order a variety of styles/sizes, I can see where that will go. I'd rather pick 1 or at the most 2 styles (e.g. black with white stripe, white with black stripe). Once you combine size and styles that would be 4 options. Letting you lot have open season on their entire stock would end up being a nightmare to track!

Can't wait to see Rob on the pavement outside the Morpeth on a frosty morning handing these out to work bound SCRers in personalised musettes.

Not really keeping it British is it, and its a 1 size fits all (or none)? €7 is cheap though! I'm happy to pay a little more to get something that's better fitting. The Walz caps seem to be well reviewed, I'll be able to add my thoughts when I get the one off of eBay that I've bought.

Unfortunately €7 hides the €150 design fee that I just noticed.
