Got my Mind on Running and rnnr on my Mind

Matt in the Hat. 

That’s my nickname around the virtual office nowadays. I have a growing collection of baseball hats that accompanies my work attire. And the number of headwear options grows exponentially when you start tossing running hats into the mix. I recently had the opportunity to check out rnnr.

rnnr is a cutting-edge company that has made a name for itself in the world of athletic headwear. I see their gear adorning many a mileage-crusher – in both real life settings and on social media. With a wide range of products designed for runners, fitness enthusiasts, and outdoor adventurers, they really seem to offer a unique blend of style, comfort, and functionality.

I’m not sure I have ever seen a rnnr hat and thought, “well, that’s no good”.  Their commitment to quality craftsmanship and attention to detail has made them a favorite among customers seeking high-performance gear that doesn’t compromise on aesthetics.

rnnr features 6 different kinds of headwear options, and we recently took three for a spin.

Crew Hat: Jungalow

One of rnnr’s standout offerings is their Crew hats, which feel most like a true baseball hat. The brim is standard and the crown gives off a little New Era vibes. But lets not mistake it, their is running tech in this. The crew hats are constructed using moisture-wicking materials that keep sweat at bay, ensuring maximum comfort during intense workouts.

Additionally, they feature a breathable mesh panel design, allowing for optimal airflow to keep the wearer cool. With adjustable straps and a variety of colors to choose from, rnnr crew hats provide a customizable fit and style for every individual. This is truly an everyday hat.

I am pretty much obsessed with the Jungalow colorway. There’s just a huge splash of color and design – and a mid-stride rabbit letting others you are planning to go fast.  embodies the spirit of the wilderness, featuring earthy tones and vibrant pops of green that evoke a sense of adventure. The combination of rich forest greens and natural hues makes the Jungalow colorway a visually striking choice that resonates with nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Pacer Hat: Unicorn

Another noteworthy product in rnnr’s lineup is their Pacer line. These hats are specifically designed for runners who want a lightweight and streamlined headwear option. Made from a combination of lightweight fabrics, rnnr’s pacer hats offer exceptional breathability and moisture management.

The hats feature a low-profile design with a soft, minimally-curved bill, allowing for solid visibility and protection from the sun. Whether you’re hitting the pavement or tackling the trails, rnnr pacer hats are the ideal choice to keep you comfortable and focused on your performance.

The Unicorn colorway takes a classic approach, combining timeless elegance with a touch of whimsy. The soft pastel shades of pink, orange, and white – complete with a little blue on the top –  add to a playful and magical element to rnnr’s collection. Even the underside of the bill is fun!

Distance Hat: Red Rock

For those seeking longer-distance adventures, rnnr’s Distance hats are a perfect fit. These hats are built to withstand the rigors of those longer runs, offering durability and protection in all conditions. This also features a moisture-wicking sweatband and has the addition of large side mesh panels to achieve maximum air flow for when you are going longer.

It is also lightweight and packable design make them ideal for a runcation or packing away in your running bag.

There are plenty of colorways in the Distance collection – including some styles we previewed above.


Running hats are great, and rnnr really stands out. From what we have tried, they really offer a range of headwear options that strike the perfect balance between style and functionality. Whether you’re looking for a sleek crew hat, a lightweight pacer hat, or a durable distance hat, rnnr has you covered. Literally.
