    I've had generally horrible luck with Kucharik, but their woolblend cap has worked perfectly for me for the last ten years or so.

    I was looking at their wool long sleever jerseys,.. a bit expensive,.. glad I didn't buy one yet. What was the issue with Kucharik?

    Their cuts have always been strange. I'm not sure they've changed them since the 60s. The material is scratchier than modern wool. And I've never had a pair of their wool shorts that lasted more than a few weeks; the wool tears where it's sewn into the chamois.

    It's disappointing, because it's a small, family run, very old shop that I really want to like. But that cap is the only thing of theirs I've ever been completely satisfied with. I hope they've made some improvements over the last few years - if you try any of their stuff I hope you'll report on it.

    like this? Walz Cycling Caps : Winter

    I've not bought one, but it's a cycling cap with ear flaps. If I don't get one for Christmas, then maybe after....

    I saw Waltz,...they look great,.. but so do Giro,...etc. Not sure how they hold up etc...That's why I asked,.. not so much where can I find them or who makes them, but "recommendations"..you know, based upon usage, experience and the like. Waltz looks good....but I'd like to order something that's not on the other coast so I can wear the darn thing ASAP! A local shop's got a giro,..but with a $45 dollar price tag I'm not buying it.

    You see these things with $30,40,$50 dollar price tags and realize, hey its just a hat, what's the deal? I'm just focusing on a cycling hat for the small brim feature, to keep some wind from my eyes and still not to big that it becomes a sail.
