Best Winter Cap for Running

Trailhead winter cap

Do you know how most of the winter running caps you need to keep your hair down because otherwise, the cap won’t fit?

Well, here is a new running cap specifically for women (although men could certainly wear it too). If you have longish hair and wear it in a pony, this cap is for you! It’s the Trailheads Pony Tail Cap for Women.

The TrailHeads Pony Tail Cap

The cap comes in two colors – black or grey. It’s designed as a “baseball” cap so that the sun is blocked from your face but the material is a Polartec type material.

Specifically, here are some of the features:

  • The cap has a drop-down fleece for protecting your ears and neck from the cold and wind.

  • The ponytail opening accommodates most ponytails or braids and features reflective stitching for enhanced visibility in low-light situations.

  • It’s soft and made from polyester/spandex fleece, 94% polyester, 6% spandex. Elastic ear band stretches to fit most head sizes. Machine wash cold; air dry.

  • There is reflective stitching at the ponytail opening and a reflective accent around the cap’s brim, you’ll be more visible during those early morning running workouts.

  • There are the larger sizes in Men’s Trailblazer Hat.

Best Winter Running Cap

The TrailHeads Pony Tail Cap is soft, comfortable, and warm. It covers my ears and the back of my neck. I love the brim. None of my existing winter beanies have a brim and since I’m very sensitive to the light, I really am looking forward to wearing this as the days get colder. This one gets a 5-star rating from me! You can pick one up for only $34 on the website.
