Fractel Releases Summer 2024 Collection

It’s almost been an entire trip around the sun since we deemed the Legionnaire as the hat that’s so uncool, it’s cool (the sentiment still holds true, by the way). As we arrive at the gates of summer here in the northern hemisphere, that sun is warming things up again, which means you’re probably in the market for a cap from the land down under. 

The Aussie brand Fractel has just dropped a slew of new caps and models in a variety of colorways and designs, from Legionnaires to standard caps to truckers. We love Fractel for a variety of reasons. First and foremost– performance. Fractel utilizes the best performance fabrics out there, like Polartec PowerDry and WindPro, which both optimize temperature regulation and are made of recycled yarns. Their hats are specially designed for different use cases, from sun protection (Legionnaire) to race day (R-Series) to a mix of fashion and performance (M-Series).

They’re also committed to sustainability, partnering with REPREVE, which is the world’s leading brand of recycled performance fiber, using recycled PET fabrics instead of first-use polyester. Lastly, Fractel gives back 1% of its gross sales back to organizations that protect the environment 

Oh, also– they look pretty great, with colors and designs for any taste.

Check out our favorites for Spring/Summer 2024.

Our Picks From Fractel

Sun Protection

L-Series Shield Legionnaire ($60)

If you ain’t cool, you’re hot, and if you’re hot, you ain’t cool. That’s why the L-Series is the perfect hat for summer running when there’s nowhere to hide. The drape for your nape will keep you from turning into burn toast, and the snap will keep it secure under your chin. Plus, you’ll have a runner’s mullet and they’re all the rage right now.

Performance & Fashion

M-Series Vulcan Edition Cap ($45)

For those looking for a cap to wear both on and off the run, look no further than the M-Series. The Vulcan is our favorite, but there’s about 20 different variations of this cap, so you’re sure to find on that’ll suit your preference. It’s a foldable hat with a darker underbrim to reduce glare, and is made from PolarTec Dry fabric for moisture management. It looks good and fits perfectly thanks to the adjustable closure fit.

Shop The M-Series

All-Around Shade

B-Series Mountain Disco Bucket Hat ($60)

The bucket bois are back in town, a song that Thin Lizzy wish they wrote, is now copyrighted by Fractel. These bucket hats rule because they’re not too big and the brim isn’t too wide. Meaning– you’re not gonna look like you’re about to head out for a metal detecting session on the beach. They’re just the right amount of hat to keep cool and look cooler.

Shop The B-Series

Race Day

R-Series Revolve Cap ($45)

With a shallower race fit, the R-Series offers aerodynamic design and is made from Italian-milled Aero3D fabric. Light and breathable and ready for fast miles from now until fall.

Shop The R-Series

fractel - R SERIES


T-Series Patagon Trucker ($45)

A classic trucker aesthetic in a running cap, built with performance and sustainability in mind. Obviously, it has a mesh back, so you can rest assured you’ll keep cool while giving off early aughts vibes thanks to the high peak front.

    I know I’m not alone in wondering where the Robbe Raccoon version is dropping.
