Best Deer Hunter’s Cap, Best Ultralight Cap:

At 76 grams in 61% Merino wool, 19% Tencel, 14% Nylon, 6% Lycra these are just the best caps I have ever found. (Black colour only) Your head stays drier and either cooler/warmer (depending on season) than any other head wear I have worn when you are working hard: Icebreaker Cool-Lite Quantum Cap

They were on special (Boxing Day), so I snapped a couple up. You will note they also had a camo version in a slightly heavier, warmer merino fabric for winter hunts, their Explore Hat -Realtree : 111 grams. I have one of these too.

Just at present (September 2022) they have a new model Cool-Lite Patch Hat  from A$41.99 in Espresso Colour, 102 grams. I bought five as these things come and go.


Here I am wearing one on the Dusky Track:
