Waterproof Hats Designed For Urban Environments
An umbrella for your head: Herschel Supply Co. and GORE-TEX® collaborated on a range of technical caps to keep city-dwellers dry
Canada-based bag and accessories manufacturer Herschel Supply Co. has collaborated with Delaware-based waterproof, windproof and breathable product producer, GORE-TEX on a new collection of waterproof hats. The offering is a range of caps engineered for urban commuters and outdoor explorers: the designs combine GORE-TEX® ‘s thin, durable fabric with the refined modern aesthetic of Herschel Supply Co.
GORE-TEX® made its commercial debut into the world of textile in 1976 with its patented membrane technology. The material is a virtually weightless synthetic layer with billions of microscopic pores throughout. Constructed of pores 1/20,000th the size of a water droplet, it allows for moisture to escape the material while protecting against the elements.
