Picking right up where last year’s drop left off, New Era‘s Japanese branch is serving up another round of GORE-TEX headwear. Old favorites are back alongside some new styles, all of which sport bold, unmistakable branding.

All of the caps are elevated with a lining of GORE-TEX PACLITE, one of the lightest iterations of the weatherproofing tech, which opts for a lightweight, coated finish in place of the typical three-layer GORE-TEX membrane. Furthermore, the exterior of each cap is realized in polyester coated with water-repelling DWR, while the sweatband — the portion inside a hat that actually makes contact with the skin — is laden with MICROERA for antibacterial effect.

Tech aside, the caps are imagined in classic New Era form. There’s the flat-brim 59Fifty, curved 9Thirty and even the militaristic WM-01, all of which are realized in black. Furthermore, each is distinguished with bold white branding, either spelling out “NEW ERA,” “GORE-TEX” or both. There’s a pair of unexpected New York Yankees options and some styles that toy with logo placement, tacking the text onto the sides for a minimalist facade.

Each of the GORE-TEX PACLITE-infused caps is available on New Era Japan’s web store for ¥5,500 JPY to ¥8,580 JPY (approximately $50 to $80 USD) apiece.

Meanwhile, GORE-TEX recently pervaded the recent collections of Stüssy and Carhartt WIP.
