When I sat down to write this post, my first thought was “how do I write an entire blog post about a hat?”. Well, this hat is like no other. Imperial Headwear has teamed up with Coolcore to provide a revolutionizing new product for golfers (and anyone else who likes to keep their head cool in the hot sun).
I first tried out the Coolcore hat on a summer day when the temperature was 33 degrees Celsius. After 18 holes, my hat is usually soaked with sweat or there’s a sweat line along the brim of the hat. I was pleasantly surprised that on this day, my hat wasn’t wet at all and there was no sign of any sweat lines at all. Most performance fabrics focus on moving the moisture from point A (away from the body) to point B (to the top of the fabric) however it only focuses on where moisture is, so part of the fabric might be wicking moisture but the other parts of the material are not because underneath that specific spot is dry. Coolcore fabrics allow for the entire hat to pull moisture no matter where underneath the hat the moisture is located, giving you a faster and more exact removal of the moisture.
Below is some information regarding Imperial Headwear and Coolcore along with the technology behind this revolutionary product.

Coolcore, the global leader in chemical-free cooling fabrics, has partnerships to develop fabrics for consumer brands throughout the world. The patented, chemical-free Coolcore materials deliver three distinct functions – wicking, moisture circulation and regulated evaporation – going far beyond traditional moisture-management textiles by reducing surface fabric temperature up to 30 percent. Coolcore fabric formulations have earned the prestigious “Innovative Technology” recognition from the Hohenstein Institute, a first for a U.S. company, and the only company globally to be awarded this recognition for “Cooling Power”.
I would highly recommend that you pick up one of these hats and add it to your collection. The Coolcore hat can be ordered online or you can probably find them at your local pro shop or golf retailer. Grab one, try it and you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
