Athletic Hytail Hat Review: A Hat Made for High Ponytails

Hats are a summer travel essential, but as those of us with long hair know, they don’t always play nicely with high ponytails. The new Athletic Hytail hat is designed to accommodate high ponytails or buns, and are great for people with long hair who wear hats when they work out.

Athletic Hytail Hat Review

Price and Where to Buy the Athletic Hytail Hat: Available on Amazon or on for $19.99.

How the Athletic Hytail Hat Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Keeps the sun off of your face and the hair off of your neck, plus the athletic style wicks away moisture.
  • Value: 7/10. On the higher price end for a hat, but the unique design is worth the money.
  • Durability: 8/10. The athletic version of the Hytail hat is made with a lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric that should last for a long time.
  • Cool Factor: 5/10. I like that the hat has no branding on the front (which is great for travel, as opposed to advertising a sports team or other logo) but it does have a subtle brand on the side.

Final Verdict: Looking for a hat that will work with your high ponytail or bun while running or walking? The Hytail hat is a good fit!
