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 these countries almost everyday

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?

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

This really is the best running hat - especially for hot weather

Ben often says in the YouTube videos that these are the best running hats. He's right. They are. Featherweight, with a highly breathable open mesh, a long bill to throw ample shade, and very soft and pliable, going through the heavy washing machine cycle no problem. I have a slightly smaller head, so most running hats make me look ridiculous. This fit perfectly. I've tested it on several long easy and harder effort runs here in Sydney's steamy summer heat (30c+) and it out-performs all my other major brand hats. Great stuff!

Great hat.

Love the simple white running hat. It’s super light and great to hide your hair when you’re long overdue a haircut but don’t really want to get it cut. Fastest hat I’ve ever worn as I got a half marathon PB in its first race.

Love my Cap, made me run Faster

Loved my new Cap, lovely personal touch also sent from Ben’s Mum, with my name on it.

Bought for my first Chicago Marathon, and sunny training sessions on the Essex Riviera.

Really decent product and design, never ran with a cap on before, felt a bit of a Wally at first, but can’t stop wearing it now, will get another one.

Great Summer Hat

Hat came well packaged and loved the note from Ben's mum.

Great for these hots days with excellent ventilation.

The only question is do you wear it the Ben or Sarah way?

Fantastic Hat 👍🏻

Thank you for this excellent running hat. Light weight, keeps the sun of the eyes and so breathable with the light weight hole construction. Wore on the Trails in Cyprus today did the job. Would recommend this Hat to everyone. Really pleased with this thanks Ben 👍🏻

Excellent running hat

Don't normally wear a hat, but got a birthday present of the 2022 Elite hat to run Rome Marathon at the weekend (19/03/23). Wasn't as sunny as expected, but humid and hat still did a good job. Dousing my head / hat with water kept my temp down.
Was aiming for a 3.30 and got 3.28 (17min PB) so happy all round.
Very light hat almost forgot I was wearing it, fits really well.

Great running cap for Singapore weather!

The material and design is great for a humid country like Singapore. Running around in the sun or in the rain, this cap can do it all while feeling comfortable. Love it! And digging the all white design of this.

Cool cap

Cap is cool, a little large but that's fine. I have a small head. I like the bill size better than the trail cap I received. It was really small. Great products though. It looks better on Sarah

Perfect running hat!

Perfect running hat! Great looks and high quality! Most importantly it is very light and is cool on a hot day! Here is a picture of me in the hat ringing the PR Bell after getting it done at the Liberty Mile in Pittsburgh PA USA after competing on a 88F (31C) degree humid day and setting a PR! My first race in the hat! Keep getting it done!
