Each year I buy a new Nike Golf hat, and this year I decided to purchase the Ultralight Tour Adjustable cap. In previous years, I either bought the Tour Mesh cap or the Perforated cap, but I was interested in trying something new this year. Here’s my review of this super light weight hat, which will be great for wearing on and off the course.
I first spotted this hat on TV when I noticed that Tiger Woods switched to an adjustable hat from his normally fitted one. I had read that Tiger would finish his rounds and sometimes have headaches because his hat was too tight, so he switched to an adjustable one that wouldn’t be so constricting on his head. I liked that option, and thought I would give it a shot.
On the website, the hat looks like this:
But my initial impression was a little surprised in that this hat really has no structure, and the reason for that is most likely due to removing any sources of weight. Therefore, when it arrived from Nike.com and I opened the box, it looked like this:
When I picked up the hat, it was clear that it was definitely super light and would make for a really comfortable wear. The brim didn’t have the same structure I am accustomed to either. They clearly removed weight from the middle area of the brim to cut weight.
The hat is super comfortable. It as a microfiber front lining for a soft inner feel and that is a feature I have never seen before. The VELCRO fastener in the back makes for an easy adjustable fit and the hat has enough stretch to accommodate any size head.
The Ultralight Tour hat has a bit of a higher rise than the Perforated and Tour Mesh hats. With its traditional six-panel design, it does have more of a baseball cap look, and coupled with not having any structure, it did leave some spaces causing indentations on the top. However, it has stylish curved lines along the sides that give it a fresh look and that add to the hat’s comfort. Here’s a look at the hat on my head:
The tour details include the new Vapor insignia on the left side and the RZN badge on the right. The front and back of the hat have black swooshes. The VELCRO fastener also has a small, black rubber tab at the end that features a swoosh on it. The best details are the microfiber inner lining and a good size brim to block out the sun.
I have yet to wear this hat out on the course, but I think it is a great summer time hat. Clearly, the designers have implemented features to cut weight down (not sure it could get any lighter and retain a shape), and ensure comfort. At $32, I think it’s a great hat to wear on and off the course to show your Nike support.
