Skull caps

Postby hap2 » Sun May 15, 2016 3:11 pm



I'm trying to find a place to get some (preferably) disposable skull caps. I'd prefer just the cloth ones so that my head doesn't get too hot & I'd like them be b elasticized a bit, so that I don't have to tie it on all the time. Don't need anything too fancy, that's for sure. Basically, I just want something to use for me (& my [passengers) to keep our hair fairly clean.

Thank ya!

I use a helmut. I'm just looking for something to put on my (& passenger's) head to keep hair relatively clean.

I use one made by LD Comfort. Nice thing is you can wet it and it keeps your head a little cooler. Wouldn't use anything else.

Go to any paint store and get a painters hood. It looks like a nomex baclava that racers use. They are only about $3.00, can be washed, are thin and elasticized.

Actually that's the one I use too but either one will do the job.

Medical supply houses have surgeons skull caps, disposable but they are about 44.00 for a case of 500 and made of poly ester type not cotton. I use a Silky (trademark) from Whitehorse press. These are solid silky type material and only have two seams on the cap ( those seams on all caps you will feel) and wash out by hand and dry quickly. Now even though the material being thin you will notice that your helmet will fit a little more snug. The silkys come in sizes also. If you have vents in your helmet and they catch the air you will be just fine on being comfortable. Remember you ride a motorcycle, your hair is suppose to be messed up.

Stop in a Flea Market, look for bandanas.
Buy several for a discount.
Best ones are the cheap ones, both cost and material. No big $$$ loss if torn or dirty.

Lots of bizarre suggestions... fork out the 5 or 10 bucks to buy a real skull cap...no handkerchief material, not blowing snot on your head... Why be so cheap? Want a knot tied up inside your helmet? Wanna look like a Harley dude? Spend a few bucks, you can keep it for ten years... the idea is to protect the inside of your helmet AND wash the skull cap when its dirty... A real skull cap has many options for fabrics, wicker effect for cooling or drying, fewer seams, etc, etc, etc... scan a few or read about a few at Wingstuff... if your really wanting a handkerchief, blown your nose and wad it up then use it... a skull cap is a lot better and a lot different than a tied up bandanna... Do the math, 10 bucks... use it for 10 years with washing... a buck a year too costly?

Maybe disposable surgical caps are what you're looking for.

https://www.healthykin.com//p-3703-mcke ... aQodj5UPvA

Price is affordable. $0.07 each. Plus shipping, $9,95

Next time I'm in the ER (hopefully no time soon) I'll ask for one and try it.
Come to think of it, years ago I seen one long hair rider wearing a waterproof bootie.

I use the elasticized "HEAT OUT " skull cap sold at cycle gear about 5 bucks. They wick the sweat off, and keep the inside of your helmet clean. Washable too. Been using mine for about 2 yrs.

Beanie helmets and tied Du-Rags are KNOT a problem.
