BOCO BOCO BOCO Gear-Headwear Review

“Disclaimer: I received a BOCO Headgear hat to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!”

Most runners are serious about their headgear, and I am not any different. When I was given the chance to test out one of BOCO’s newest hats, naturally I jumped at the chance.

History
BOCO was “born in the Boulder”, Boulder Colorado. They offer stylish, technical headwear and accessories for your brand, team or event. Fully customized with wicking fabrications and technical innovation, our gear is designed for and tested by top athletes. We sweat the details! That means you can customize your own BOCO hat for your favorite team or group.

Reputation/Clients
Reputation can take a company a long way, and you can get a good idea of what type of reputation a company has by their clients. BOCO clients include some heavy hitters and well-known companies like: BIBRAVE, Ragnar, Timex, IronMan, GU, and Balega to name a few. All these companies surely can’t be wrong.

Hat Specs
Performance Woven material front
Wicking internal sweatband
Internal dry tech backing behind the front panels for additional wicking
Structured extended front panel
Mesh side and back panels
Adjustable plastic snap back closure
Curved or Flat bill available

Wear/Comfort
I feel BOCO has unlocked the secret to hat comfort and they aren’t sharing with anyone else. These hats are incredibly comfortable and fit the your head perfectly. I guess you can say I’m a fan, I own 4 different BOCO hats; 2 Bibrave, and 2 custom hats for my home state NC. I wear them mostly casually, but I have raced in one of my Bibrave hats.

Recommendation
This is a no brainer for me, you have to try one. If you have a Fleet Feet in your area, I’m willing to bet they have at least 1 style (if not more) of BOCO hats. So make your head happy, and experience the comfort of BOCO hats for yourself.
