The Full Story+

The Pioneer Cowl Cap has been made using advanced Polyamide and Elastane for long lasting durability, comfort and freedom of movement. These modern fibres have been woven to provide UPF 40+ Sun Protection, keeping you feeling cool and comfortable even in hot and humid conditions while protecting you against harmful UV rays. Combined with Insect Shield® technology for long-lasting, effective and convenient insect protection.

Featuring a fold away cowl that extends over the rear of the neck for extra protection from the sun and insects. Whilst shade has been provided with a large peak that covers the face for minimal sun exposure.

UPF 40+ Sun Protection Note

All of our garments are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor, and those that achieve a rating of UPF 40+ are noted as protection against UV. Garments awarded a 40+ UPF block 97.5% of UV radiation rating, so for every 40 units of radiation, 39 are blocked, and 1 contact the skin. 

Insect Shield® Note

Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each Insect Shield® labelled garment is treated with Permethrin, an invisible an odourless ingredient which protects against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. The treatment is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it retains effectiveness through the expected life of the product – well beyond the limits of most fabric finishes.

Review Pioneer Cowl Cap

★★★★☆

So far the hat meets with my requirements for keeping the sun off my neck, I have had no problems with size as was mentioned, One thing though the flap is quite light so does then to flap about in wind which can be annoying especially if you are tracking birds or animals. for this I use the Tilly hat

Pioneer Cowl Cap - For tiny heads

★★☆☆☆

I would try these hats on before buying.

They come up very small. No ajustment.

I tried the L/XL and it is not a large hat.

Sorry to hear you were disappointed with the Cap size. Please note we follow the below head circumference measurements when fitting caps/hats:

S/M M/L L/XL.

59cms 61cms 63cm

Slight size problem

★★★☆☆

The cap is good, but marginally too small (despite the fact that it is the largest size (L/XL). It is comfortable when word with the cowl down, but when the cowl is (very carefully) stowed it is just a little too tight. The benefit, of course, is that it is not removed by even a powerful wind. I am hoping that, with more wear, it will gradually conform to my large head.
