Why Spartan Athletes Love Headsweats Gear

Why Spartan Athletes Love Headsweats Gear

In August 2018, we partnered with Spartan Race, the world’s largest obstacle race and endurance brand, as the Official Custom Headwear Provider. Since then, each Spartan athlete has trained hard and kept a cool head with our ultralight, moisture-wicking, headwear.

Like Spartan, Headsweats is dedicated to providing the highest quality product possible. Spartan ensures quality and challenging obstacle races while Headsweats creates headwear equipped to help athletes perform at their best. To make sure we are achieving our goals, we caught up with some Spartan Pro Team Athletes to learn their opinion about our Spartan Gear.

  • How important is it for you as an athlete to have the best performing headwear?

As an athlete, it is crucial for me to have the best performing headwear because I am constantly training outside in all types of different weather conditions. Headsweats offers so many different styles for every season that are made to do the workouts with me rather than be a burden to have to fix mid-workout.

  • What do you like the most about Headsweats hats? 

I love all the different patterns and styles! I could literally wear a Headsweats hat for any occasion. I have my beanie and buff for when it’s cold, my mesh trucker for hot mountain climbing days, and a sleek spartan hat for when I’m at work.

  • What is your favorite hat so far and why?

My favorite hat so far is the Spartan Iceland Ultra hat. The way it captures the northern lights makes it such a beautiful piece that is more than just a hat and speaks volumes about a race and where it was rather than a typical logo.

 

  • What are your training gear must-haves? 

My training gear must-haves are my heart rate monitor, watch, and headgear.

  • How important is it for you as an athlete to have the best performing headwear?

For me personally, it’s extremely important. I sweat A LOT and I also train in many different training environments. I need a hat that I can wear in the gym and on the trails. It also needs to be able to withstand the elements and dry super fast. Headsweats checks off all the boxes.

  • What do you like the most about Headsweats hats?

I really like how lightweight and breathable they are. I train several hours a day, so to have something comfortable with good airflow is absolutely necessary for me to maximize my training sessions. They’re also really easy to wash; I just throw them in with my clothes and they come out like new.

  • What is your favorite hat so far and why?

I love my boonie hat but I’ll have to say my go-to is my grey Spartan trucker hat. I literally wear that thing everywhere. It’s just a super durable cap that looks good either working out or out to dinner with friends.

  • What are your training gear must-haves?

Oh man, I have quite a few. First off, I cannot and will not train without a watch. Always gotta have that. And my bag usually gets stuffed with a towel, extra socks, a few t-shirts, and of course a workout and post workout hat.
