I wrote a couple of months ago about cycling caps describing how I chose and bought a Europcar cycling cap from Performance Bicycles, and about how that retailer failed to post my critical review. Heck, it appears their link to the cap is dead, too, and site search indicates they’ve only got Europcar bibs and jerseys.
Anyway, in late July, my wife’s parents came to stay for about a week, and my amazing mother-in-law repaired the broke down cap’s elastic band. The cycling cap’s now functional, even after several washings. And, even after several washings, its fabric still feels as if it’d been soaked in paint to get the graphics and color on it. Maybe it had been soaked in paint. Feels stiff, and retains the delicate aroma of my perspiration after treatment with extra-strength Febreeze. I’m not kidding, I really bought some to spray on/in the cap.
