Nike Pocket AW84

The colors are cool, yes. But what we like most about this hat ($28, is the pocket hidden along the top—just big enough for a key and a few emergency bucks, so you can leave the fanny pack at home. (More workout gear that holds your stuff while you run here.)

This Under Armour hat ($25, will help you run faster—it says so right in the name! Okay, so maybe that's a step too far... But with mesh to keep your head cool, a signature Moisture Transport System to keep your head dry, and a selection of solid colors and patterns to choose from, it's pretty great no matter what your pace.

Saucony Razor Hat

This hat ($38, reminds  us of the duty hats all the skateboarders in high school used to wear—in a good way. The construction is genius. The brim is just long enough to shield you from the sun without impairing your vision of the road ahead, the outer fabric is water- and wind-proof, and the inner fabric is fleece-y and sweat-wicking. Plus, there are two vents on the back, so you can choose to wear your ponytail high or low. (Try threading one of these stay-put hairstyles through.)

This hat ($40, looks like a chic black cap, but it's totally waterproof, and the visor is ever-so-slightly long, so it'll keep every last drop out of your face—and it'll keep the sun out of your eyes too.

Adidas Stellasport Embroidered Cap

We actually had to message customer service to make sure this Stellasport hat ($30, was a sporty cap and not a fashion cap. The all white exterior, the flat brim with the pop-color logo underneath, the six-panel stitching... It screams cool.

Sweaty Betty Rapid Run Beanie

With enough slouch to give you some hipster cred, but not so much that it will flap wildly behind you as you run, what more could you ask for from a beanie? If you're thinking "quick-drying, light-but-warm merino wool" sounds kind of high-maintenance, don't worry, this cute beanie ($45, still delivers.
