Ocean Tee Pacific Cap Review
Sustainability is at the heart of what several golf brands do in 2022 with Ocean Tee leading the way when it comes to using sustainable materials and implementing environmentally friendly techniques when constructing apparel. Long-term solutions to our environmental issues must be found and golf is not immune, which leads us to the Ocean Tee Pacific Cap.
It is no understatement to say the Pacific caps are unique and revolutionary. Made in partnership with Waste2Wear, the hats are constructed with recycled ocean plastic, in fact they are made from exactly three bottles per cap. How is this done? Well Ocean Tee has sought to be as transparent as possible when it comes to how the caps are made. Specifically, bottles are collected from the ocean, washed, and then labels are removed. The clean bottles are then shredded and moulded into small pellets. These get melted and moulded into yarn, which is then made into a fabric. Additionally, in the back of each cap is a QR code that, when scanned, allows the wearer to track exactly which ocean these plastics have been collected from. On top of this, you can check out the production process and track each step of how the cap is made.
As important as the sustainable elements are, the caps also deliver in several other ways. Available in classic or flat-bill designs, the caps have a premium, comfortable feel as well as an anti-microbial and sweat resistant headband. We also like the wave design featured on the bill of the flat-bill cap, and the boldness of the Ocean Tee logo on the top as well. Two more features worth mentioning are the caps come packaged in a fully biodegradable bag, and Ocean Tee gives 25% of its profits to UK charities that fight plastic pollution and protect marine environments, so it is a brand well worth supporting.
As you can tell we have been a fan of Ocean Tee for a while now, from when they started out making environmentally-friendly bamboo tees, to clothing like the Oceanic Polo which made our Editors Choice list last year. The Pacific is a worthy inclusion for 2022 and could be one of the best golf caps out there.
