New Era continues its “TECH” series of headwear with a new collection made with GORE-TEX PACLITE material. The two-layer material is meant to be lightweight for travel and can be bunched up for storage, but offers the same waterproof characteristics found in other GORE-TEX products.
The collection is comprised of the New Era signature 59FIFTY and more classic styles like the 9THIRTY and WM-01. The latter two caps see minimal reflective 3M branding while the 59FIFTY elects for large embroidery at the front. Those interested can find all three hats at New Era Japan where they retail from ¥5,500 – ¥7,700 JPY (approximately $50 – $70 USD).
