You've tried headbands, skullcaps, and even those little bandannas that make you look like 'Il Pirata.' However, we know that if you're reading this, none of those have worked. Desperate times call for drastic measures, and if your winter is anything like ours, November through March is certainly a desperate time. This year, don't accept a frosty head, use the Gore Bike Wear Universal SO Helmet Cap.
Gore's Universal SO Helmet Cap lightly fits over your helmet and cinches down with an elastic drawstring and cord stoppers. It's been constructed to seamlessly and securely adapt to the shape of most helmets, so that your investment doesn't fly off with the wind. For the materials, Gore made the membrane of the Universal SO with the venerable Gore-Tex fabric. Waterproof, windproof, warming, and highly breathable, Gore-Tex has proven itself to be the ultimate in winter protection. Now, we understand that this is a tall order, but Gore alone has proven itself capable of commanding such absolutes. Enough so that we can't exactly tell you how Gore-Tex works, because it's easily the closest guarded secret in the fabric business. What we do know is that your head will never be dryer, regardless of how bad the weather is.
And don't think that Gore forgot about your safety. The Helmet Cap has been given reflective accents throughout to increase your visibility in low-light conditions. The Gore Bike Wear Helmet Cap is available in the sizes Medium and Large and in the colors Black, Neon Yellow, and White/black.
Fiber Content: 84% nylon 16% elastine.
Country of Origin: Imported
Great protection for ears, and all around exposed areas under helmet; but top of the cap is indeed very thin, and not very warm at all. I looked everywhere for the other cap (universal *windstopper SO thermal) mentioned by the previous reviewer and finally found it at a bike shop some distance away from my area...last one they had (including warehouse availability)...but soooo worth it! What a difference! And the technical design: allowing your glasses to go through the cap without creating air gaps; and so very warm. Will still wear the other version on not so cold days. If any of you can find this other cap, get it while you can (or next season if need be)!!!
In my years at Gore, I have known one thing. You can't go wrong with our winter accessories. This is our best seller and it is killer. If you want warmer, hit the Universal SO Thermo up instead as we took it to the next level and our customers in Chicago and Minnesota couldn't be happier.
