Look Mum No Hands Union Jack Hat

The 'Union Jack' cycle cap is a new LMNH design, with the Union Flag on the sides and 'London' on the peak it's a cycle specific way to show where your allegiances might lie this Summer.

You could do worse than wear it when Bradley pulls on yellow in Paris* and continue to wear it on Box Hill to cheer our boys as they romp up the pimple of a climb in the big ring and then jubilantly throw it in the air when Cav streaks home to cruise to victory on The Mall**.

Aesthetics aside it's your standard issue cotton cycle-cap, the peak keeps the sun out your eyes, and more importantly, the rain, and it stops sweat stinging down. The fit is snug without being tight so you can wear it on it's own without it flipping off to flutter under a bus, it doesn't shrink half a size in the wash to give you a headache every time you wear it afterwards, and the peak hasn't bent or wrinkled. It's a good cycle-cap.

*If you have a time machine.

**Maybe.

Verdict

It's a cycle-cap, it's patriotically branded with a reference to some large sporting event happening in the capital. As a cycling cap it's well made and comfortable, the design is going to be a personal thing but it's better than a pair of Union Jack underpants.

The 'London' thing might get a bit old pretty quickly, unless you live in London.

Did you enjoy using the product? Yes, it's a good cap.

Would you consider buying the product? Not really, I'm not that flag-wavey about the whole London thing, but don't let me put you off. I'd happily buy one of the other LMNH caps that was more my style though.

You'd like to say it... but you can't quite bring yourself to say it, right? Ha-ha!
