Like It, but Wish It Was Black
I wear the cap for surfing on a stand up paddle (surf)board. The hat is durable and well made. I expect to keep it for a good while. It fits very well and is comfortable. The short visor blocks the sun, and the cap and visor keep the UV rays off my forehead while shading my vision. On the downside the cap bill is not very long so it won't keep the sun off your face from your nose down. On the upside the bill does not block your vision when you prone paddle the board. This is important to me. The advertising says the bill can be flipped up but I haven't found this to be true in any kind of practical way. The fabric that covers your ears is mesh so sounds are not muffled. On the downside, the wind can blow into the mesh which can be a bit chilly in cold weather. The cap while light, is not meant to provide meaningful insulation, however it does retain some warming qualities which is nice in colder weather. I bought this cap to replace another similar style of cap which is no longer made. I wish the cap was black and not gray which is just a personal preference. Overall I'm very satisfied with this cap. It fulfills the intended purpose for which it was purchased.

Dakine is a Hawaiian slang or Pidgin term that can be used to indicate just about anything, but it has come to be associated with items of high quality, and this is the meaning that best suits the name of Dakine™ water sportswear. Dakine rashguards, Dakine surf hats and a number of different Dakine bags are just a small portion of all that Dakine has to offer.
Dakine was born in Hawaii in 1979 when Rob Kaplan manufactured the first Dakine surfboard leash, a surf leash built to withstand even the most brutal Hawaiian surfing conditions. The Dakine surfing leash set the standard for Dakine's innovative and high quality products. Specific to surfing, they carry Dakine Traction pads, Dakine surf bags, Dakine surf hats, and Dakine rashguards. For Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP) they have a Dakine SUP paddle bag, Dakine SUP paddle sock, Dakine waterproof duffel bag and a Dakine hydration pack.
