The Under Armour Ultra Run Cap was an impulse buy when browsing the merchandise at the UA outlet near my inlaws’ house. I had a headlamp that I liked a lot, but the idea of having the lights built into a hat was enough to sell me on this cap.
Here are the specs from the Under Armour website about the cap:
The Under Armour Ultrathon Run cap is packed with all the features you need to have success in a long running event. When the race runs late, this cap has Panthervision® Powercap® LED technology with two attached angles of light that keep your vision clear and the finish line in sight.
Perforated detailing provides superior breathability.
An unstructured fit provides customizable comfort.
Built-in HeatGear® sweatband wicks sweat away to keep you cool and dry.
A low-profile creates less drag when running.
Adjustable comfort closure in the back provides a customizable fit.
A convenient zippered pocket on the left side provides storage for small items.
As a hat, I have no complaints. It is lightweight, breathable and comfortable. As a headlamp, it lacks in illumination. It works alright if it is not pitch black out and if you don’t need to see very far in front of yourself. I prefer to have a lot of light when I run at night.
I think I paid around $30 for the hat. I could have purchased a nicer hat and a nice headlamp for not much more.
