The World's Finest Triathlon Gear - Since 1990

Skin Cooler Run Cap*

Regular price $ 33.00

Unit price per 



In 1990 we invented this great mesh running cap. We updated it with a few unique features to make it a first in the triathlon market for a second time.

Our black Skin Cooler™ fabric keeps you just as cool as the white. It inherently has a reflective virtue that is created by a combination of the fibers, the fiber content, and the special way the fabric is knitted. Once the black fabric gets wet it keeps you cool in hot weather. This is no gimmick, we guarantee it works or your money back!


  • Pocket on the front fits credit cards, ID, dollar bill, most car keys and even a slim MP3 player, or Ipod Shuffle
  • The pocket is low profile with no velcro
  • Items stay in place from the innovative design and shape of the pocket
  • A plastic brim makes this cap machine washer friendly
  • Nanosurf™ and Skin Cooler™ mesh keep you cool and comfortable while providing protection from the sun
  • Adjustable velcro closure to give you a comfortable fit

What makes ours different?  Our Skin Cooler fiber is designed to feel and perform like silk (from a silkworm).  Through Biomimicry, we took the virtues of this natural fiber and created a synthetic silk.  It will keep you cool in hot weather and cooler when it is wet.  Put it on and you will instantly feel the cool sensation.  Wet it and you will notice a drop in the surface temperature of the skin between 7 and 10 degrees.

This item is one product, which comprises less than 2% of our total products that are not made in the USA.

This is a great run cap

Like all DeSoto products, this cap does what is says - it keeps your head cool on those days when you're running under a hot sun.

Need a smaller hat for women

Like fabric- does feel cooler. Hat is quite large- rides low, can easier tuck in tops of both ears, & have to overlap back Velcro quite a bit to fit. Velcro catches hair taking it off. A smaller size for women would be helpful. I’m 5’5”. Recommend for men & large women only.

Great Cap - Works as Described

Definitely a great running hat and I could feel the cooling once it got wet. It is a little stiffer than I usually like in my running hats, but overall, I am very happy with the purchase.
