Montréal Cycling Cap review

"Combining style and function, these hats keep the rain, sweat, and sun out of your eyes without fear of the wind blowing it right off. Rock the brim flipped up, or down under your helmet (safety first!) and rep your local pride." -Madeinmtl

Cycling cap ​​entirely made by hand in Montreal. Model Montreal White (other colors available)

The design is screen printed by hand and refers to the architecture of Montreal's Biosphère. All designs are original creations from Disamare, a company founded by 2 lovers of DIY and bikes!

-Cotton fabric prewashed and medium thickness ( hand wash recommended + do not put it in the clothes dryer machine)
- Perfect for wearing under an helmet and to protect yourself from drafts or absorb sweat
-Rigid visor reinforced with plastic and short ( 2 inches). It rises easily to not obstruct the view

They have two sizes!
The (Small -Med ) is normally a single size which fits all types of heads with the elastic . But to satisfy the biggest heads, if you are unsure or afraid to feel cramped, we made a (Med- width ), which also fits with an elastic.

Important: The fabric of each cap is printed manually (silk screening) with fabric ink that has been heated to avoid damages. In addition, the silk screening sometimes alters the pattern which can be darker or less apparent at some spots. For Disamare team, this feature is far from being a failure and indeed, the charm of a manual printing process! Each hat is truly unique and valuable.
