A lightweight and breathable peaked cap offering valuable protection from both sun and showers.Read more…
Comfortable and practical, the Escaper Cap has a generous peak to keep the sun or rain out of your eyes and incorporates a crease down the centreline - a useful detail that means you can easily fold it in half, making a compact package - small enough to fit in most pockets.
It’s made from a blend of polyamide and elastane with our advanced Durable Water Repellency™ finish. It’s a tough, premium fabric that resists wear but is also light, comfortable and highly breathable.
The rugged, practical design has a handy captive single cord adjuster at the rear to ensure a comfortable, secure fit and is manufactured with twin needle stitching over the seams for durability.
95% polyamide 5% elastane Durable Water Repellency™.
Pack Size: 220ml
Drying Time: 3 hours
We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.
Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.
All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.

At under 100g the Escaper Cap is very lightweight. Containing elastane, the material is stretchy and feels very secure and comfortable, although I would have preferred the material to be slightly thicker.
This cap has a very strong brim at the front, and is very effective at blocking out bright sun and keeping rain away from the face. The Durable Water Repellency feature makes rain water splash off, and it is highly breathable in hot and humid climates such as South East Asia.
There are three sizes to choose from, but as the volume of the cap is slightly larger than expected, it is possible some people may need to take a smaller size than usual. However, the cord adjuster at the rear of the cap enables you to tighten the fit to the size and shape of your head.
Having only recently purchased it, I cannot vouch for this cap’s durability or longevity, but it appears very well constructed with strong stitching over the seams.
Overall, the Escaper Cap is very convenient for any kind of travel activity, such as hiking, trekking or city sightseeing. To be able to fold it in half down the middle and carry it in a pocket or day bag is a very appealing feature.
Bought an Escaper cap last year to shield my thinning scalp from the sun and have worn it many times whilst walking with my rambling club. I had the largest size because of my large head and have found it comfortable and relatively smart to wear and even on the sunniest and hottest days it works just fine and am well pleased with it.
Colour, design and weight all good but the crown of the cap is too large and thus not as comfortable as some other brands
