Frequently Asked Questions

Will I have to pay any import duty or extra tax?

All orders in the UK and European Union (under €150) will not be subject to any further taxes before delivery.

The price you see on the screen at checkout will be the final price you will pay. In the unlikely event of you being charged, please get in touch and we will resolve the issue with the carrier. 

 For European Union orders over €150 there will be import taxes to pay to your local carrier.  If you have a larger order, please place multiple orders under €150 and you won't have any tax to pay.  You'll still get free postage for orders over €90. 

 For the rest of the world, any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches the destination country. You may be charged for handling fees and taxes as your order passes through customs. Any charges on a parcel must be paid by the customer. We have no control over these charges and we can't tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. We recommend contacting your local customs office before placing an order so you are not surprised by any charges you were not expecting.

Currently orders to the USA are tax free up to £560, Australia up to £585, New Zealand up to £505. So any orders under these amounts will not attract any further charges.

When will my order be dispatched?

We aim to dispatch all orders within 24 hours Monday to Friday. If an order is placed on Saturday or Sunday, it will be dispatched the following Monday.

Do you ship to my country?

We ship to most countries in the world. If you have any issues at the checkout page where it says we do not ship to you then please get in touch via the chat feature.

We ship to these countries almost everyday
USA - Australia - New Zealand - Germany - Netherlands - Norway - Sweden - France - Spain - Italy - Ireland - Canada and many more!

I have a big head. Will you hats fit me?

All caps have the same circumference (58cm) and are all adjustable to fit most head sizes.

The depth of the hat varies for each different style so if you feel you have a particularly large head then stick with the Getting It Done, OG, PB or Bucket Hats. 

We have a section with hats for people with larger heads here.

I have a small head. Will your hats fit me?

An amazing race hat

Ran my first race in this hat today, a rolling 10 mile course on the country lanes of cheshire, and the hat performed amazingly. It kept the rain and sweat out of my eyes, it didn't make me overheat, and i basically forgot about it and was able to get my head down and race. There can't possible be a better reason to lobe a good running hat as that.

Best People and Best Hats

First of all I would like to thank Bens team with the bottom of my heart for the replacement as my item got lost in the post. I shopped twice for running hats and I must say it’s high quality and great looking. Their customer service is exemplary. Highly recommended, my first place to shop.

Great for winter too

Can’t stand beanies! Took this out today for its inaugural 10miles easy after a chilly 2 degrees start in deepest darkest Wiltshire - kept me warm and forgot it was there, perfect 👍🏻

Confortable, Light and Stylish Cap

I was looking for a no-mainstream cap, an original cap that has something to say and with interesting colours and designs. Beautiful, soft inner texture and solid lock. 100% recommended.

Comfortable and kept my head cool

My first running cap, previously wore a casquette. Peak is great for keeping the Sun out of the eyes, and when reversed, off the back of the neck to prevent sunstroke. My first run it felt comfortable and the mesh definitely kept my head cool. Bargain buy.

Made me faster

Not only looks good, and is comfortable, but it makes you faster too. First race wearing it I set a new 5K PB and then this weekend, the second race I've worn it, new 5 and 10K PBs. Result!
