CH Edition: Outlier

Cycle in the rain with style wearing our collaboratively designed cap


Two cyclists on a mission “to make stylish garments for a world where your bike is your favorite means of transportation,” Outlier began in 2009 with an impressive pair of tailored pants. With a seemingly Midas touch, every garment or accessory Outlier has produced since has been nothing short of ideal. The consideration and passion behind their performance threads has led Outlier to become a staple in any cyclist’s (or snappy dresser’s) closet.

For the 2010 holiday season we asked Outlier’s Tyler Clemens and Abe Burmeister to create a Cool Hunting cycling cap, an accessory technically designed for bike riding in inclement conditions. The resulting Swiss wool hat is completely wind-resistant, highly water-resistant and boats a brim that perfectly shields a rider’s brow.


The functionally stylish cap was crafted in three colors—gray, navy and black. Demonstrating Outlier’s “shopping by hand” philosophy, the durable thick wool feels as nice as it looks on, and combined with its minimalist aesthetic that hat is sure to be worn for years to come.

Designed exclusively for Cool Hunting, the Weatherproof Cycling Cap sells from our online shop for $90.
