SCR Caps for winter - Arrived!

Postby Wrath Rob » Wed Oct 03, 2012 11:02 am

2 things have happened in my cycling life recently. 1 I've converted to cycling caps when riding. Keeps the sweat out of my eyes and the bill is great of blocking out rain/low sun. Unfortunately cotton caps hold onto the sweat so as the weather gets colder this isn't so great.

The 2nd thing is the discovery of Walz Caps. They're moisture wicking and available on eBay for around £15, so I'll be off to order one shortly.

Or will I? Looking around their website I can see that they do bulk discounts and also custom designs. Given we're always talking about getting something SCR related for people to wear, this could be the idea we've been looking for. Cost looks like being around $15-20 depending on volume and shipping.

I've got the artistic ability of a newt, so if someone could come up with a design, I'd be happy to sort out the rest. I was thinking of something monochromatic, e.g. the black 3 piece cap (white stripe) and then a SCR logo on the sides and bill. Possibly even "FCN" with a white box on the underside so that people can write in their FCN. Maybe.

So, if you're interested, stick your name down. If you've got a design idea, post it up! All not-for-profit, though if I do end up with any cash left over it will go to the Royal Marsden.

UPDATE: Its definitely Walz caps and at around £12-13 plus UK postage. Figure may be higher or lower depending on the number of orders and any customs charges. If you want in then please add your details and the cap to the shared doc here

Glad you've seen the light! Prendas caps are great.

BTW when it comes to winter you're best off with a cap that covers your ears. The Rapha winter cap is very cosy and seems to wick well. (Although I don't cover mine with a helmet.)

A nice added bonus of cappage is this - if the peak stops dripping sweat then:

a) you need to drink more or...
b) you need to push harder.

If you are sourcing caps, could you get one for DDD's wife? Save him having to take responsibility for family planning like :wink:

Also, http://www.wiggle.co.uk/craft-winter-bike-cap/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=base&utm_campaign=uk&utm_content=Craft-Craft_Winter_Bike_Cap-Black%2fBright_Red look good.

Just ordered one of those. However, no SCR customisation!

Like this idea a lot!

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...

Would love to, but I've got a drawer full of Prendas caps and I've just ordered a couple of Giro Merino winter caps.

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

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.

British suppliers? Seems odd to have to go to the US for this sort of thing.
