A little while ago, I was contacted by Matt from Jack Rabbit Caps, about reviewing one of their hats. I had been to their site previously and their hats looked interesting to me, so I said sure.

The JackRabbit Cap is a great looking hat.
The burgundy color and while monograming of “A Veteran Runnah” looked fantastic (just wish I could say the same for the model) .
The hat was well made, no imperfections, loose threads or blemishes that I could find.
Initially this concerned me a little, as you can see below the hat is not adjustable. I can’t be accused of having a big head and usually have a tough time wearing hats that do not have an adjustable headband.
However, after wearing the JackRabbit Cap as my daily hat and during all kinds of runs, that included close encounters with tractor trailers and some pretty windy a few days, the hat never came close to blowing off.
One of the things I noticed and liked was that I wasn’t adjusting the tightness of a running hat 2-3 times a run, like I usually do – I just put it on and wore it. Which allowed me to focus more on the run, instead of how my hat was fitting.
They do make custom sizes XS-XXL for those who have smaller or bigger noggins.
I did find out from Matt, that they embroider on either side of the hat or the front panel. Plus they are looking at coming out with a high visibility hat in near future. That will be something that I will be really interested in when they do. When I am out running I prefer to wear colors that can be readily seen by others, especially during hunting season, in low-light conditions and when I am running on the roads.
Need to Wash It
This hat is a technical fabric, so it wicked away the moisture very well, but like all my technical fabrics and other hats, TheWife noticed that it got a little ripe after a few runs and suggested that I needed to throw it in with my running laundry (which is done separately from anything else, for some reason or other). The JackRabbit Cap looked and smelled as good as new, even after repeated washings, so I was impressed with that!
The reality is that
I like my hat from JackRabbit Caps a lot!
JackRabbit Caps is a small company that offers “Made In the USA” products and nicely fills a niche in the running accessory marketplace that I think is needed.
Customizable, quality running caps.
Last night during #RunChat there was a discussion about what kind of swag that runners like at races and hats were one of the things mentioned a lot. Hint, hint to you Race directors out there.
When JackRabbit Caps come out with the hi-vis version, I plan to purchase one for myself – I can’t give a product any higher recommendation than that.
