New Era is the official cap of Major League Baseball and one of the leading manufacturers of sports caps in the world. Since 1920, New Era has been one of the world’s leading hat companies, producing the highest quality products that have passed through over 90 years of an ever-changing environment of fashion, culture and sport.
New Eras’ ability to manufacture and market the highest quality baseball caps has earned it the title of “Official Major League Baseball Cap”. Did you know that all your favorite major league baseball players wear New Era 5950 caps on the pitch?
New Eras On-Field Collection caps are equipped with New Eras Cool Base Performance technology, which provides the best headgear parameters, while ensuring the highest quality and comfort in the most extreme conditions.
New Eras Cool Base Performance prides itself on three main factors:
1) revolutionary moisture management
2) perfect drying
What makes the New Era caps with Cool Base Performance technology different from other New Era 59Fifty caps?
The main difference is the material. The On-Field caps with Cool Base Performance technology are made of 100% polyester, while most other New Era caps are made of 100% wool or a 70/30 wool / cotton blend.
Polyester is a synthetic material used to make a wide variety of garments, most of them made of a blend of cotton and polyester. Here are some of the advantages of using polyester:
1) polyester dries quickly
2) polyester keeps its shape better
3) Polyester is more resistant to mildew and mildew
For premier league baseball players and other athletes, it’s easy to see why New Era produces its On-Field polyester caps. New Era polyester caps with Cool Base Performance technology are perfect for MLB players and other athletes due to the extreme conditions they play in. Polyester helps:
* caps dry quickly in heat, where the hat can get soaked with sweat or in rainy, cold conditions.
* caps do not shrink. New Era caps are most often fitted, so wool or cotton caps will shrink under the influence of sweat or water.
* caps keep their shape while playing, exercising, throwing them into lockers and shoving them to the bottom of sports bags.
* caps retain color better.
When manufacturing polyester garments such as New Era caps, use very fine polyethylene terephthalate (PET) threads that are woven or knitted for maximum flexibility.
By combining fine polyester fibers with the seam quality of New Era, you’ll notice that New Era caps made with Cool Base Performance technology are smooth and silky to the touch.
