Nike Barcelona Core Cap
Nike Barcelona Core Cap

5.0 out of 5 stars Not sure why they stopped making these., March 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The 2012/13 Nike Core Cap's were the best caps Nike has made for football clubs. Curving the rim is easily done over a day or two, the hat is comfortable both frontwards and backwards, and the look! The look is the best part! I love having the teams initials on the front, the club badge on the right, and the swoosh on the left. Too often club caps are bland in that it's the crest on the front and that's it. This one has it all. It's a shame that Nike stopped making them like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Bayern Munich cap you'll find on Amazon, February 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product is fantastic. The cap has a classic military style look in that the crown is a bit raised, but not anywhere near as obscenely as on a New Era fitted cap. It looks great frontwards and backwards.
The Bayern logo is beautiful, and the velcro strap on the back allows you to instantly adjust for a tight fit on cold days and a loose fit on hot ones. If you're a Bayern Munich supporter you cannot go wrong with this cap.

1.0 out of 5 stars Abysmal, August 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These protectors are the biggest ripoff in the cell phone accessories market. While putting mine on, I noticed that the letters on the spray bottle had worn off and got all over my fingers (due to mixing with the solution that it contained). The protector was rendered useless.
Also, if you have a white iPhone, there are little ZAGG letters along the bottom right hand side. It totally ruins the appeal of having a protector.
Save yourself $10 and pickup a case with a built in screen protector.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tough sell, August 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This case is strictly for the Star Wars fans. It provides minimal protection for the phone (if you drop it the chances of it not getting a scratch or dent are zero point zero), and to my surprise, it was a very tight fit, so much so that the case seemed to be favoring one side. I could never shake it loose, but it was definitely uneven.
For $20-$30 you're better off buying a well built, all around protection case, and adding an R2-D2 or Star Wars sticker on the back.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great alternative to the bulky OtterBox cases, June 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
1) For the price alone it's worth trying.

I purchased this case because I was looking for something smaller than the OtterBox case I bought with my iPhone 5. OtterBox makes a wonderful product, but for someone who takes care of their phone it's overkill. This case caught my eye because of the built in screen protector. I've had ZAGG Shields and random films put over the screen and they all end up with a spec of dust under them that drives me crazy or collect dirt around the home button. This case does not.

The easy to open cover allows you to clean it without hassle if anything gets under, and whatever it's made of actually enhances the look of the screen. The feel of the case is standard, and you have access to all of the buttons (no flaps like on the OtterBox).

Again, for the price, you can't go wrong. This is a fantastic product and I wish that more case manufacturers would build the screen protector onto the case.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable cap, May 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I picked this hat up last year outside of Yankee Stadium prior to a Real Madrid exhibition match. It is a comfortable fit and looks great when worn frontwards. My one complaint is that the back of the cap is empty. With no logo on the back it looks goofy when worn backwards.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you don't want a fitted cap, this is the way to go, April 7, 2013
This is the kind of cap you buy for someone who isn't comfortable wearing fitted caps. It has a timeless look to it thanks to the leather strap and the simple NY on the front. The sweatband is white, so you'll have to clean it if you don't want it to look dirty, and the leather strap did leave a lot of remnants after removing it from the plastic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice cap, but he M was crooked., April 7, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's puzzling to me why they would but an M on the front and an M on the back. I feel like New Era mailed it in with this cap. The one I received had a crooked M on the front, making it unwearable.
'47 Brand is the way to go when it comes to NCAA caps. Until New Era uses the same fabrics they use with MLB and NFL caps, I wouldn't bother buying any of their NCAA products.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll never buy another hat, March 23, 2013
This is bar none the best hat on the market. It's worth two times the price they're charging. The look is standard New Era, with the exception of the White rim (home) and Gray rim (away). The feel is where this hat destroys the competition.

The hat is as light as two pieces of paper. The diamond weaving allows for maximum breath-ability. You never get too hot or too cold. It absorbs moisture wonderfully. I wore it once during a snow storm and once more during a downpour. About 10 minutes after being out of the elements it was dry. The moisture didn't effect my hair at all. In the sun, the black fabric under the rim allows you to see without straining your eyes. This product is flawless.

As with most New Era caps, it'll take a couple of weeks to curve the rim. This one seems a bit more sturdier than the other MLB/New Era hats. I've found that if you soak the hat (it's 100% polyester, so you don't have to worry about it shrinking) the rim curves easier and tends to stay that way. Though, like a good pair of boots, wearing it often is the best way to break it in.

Whatever technology they've used in these caps makes it a must own. This is a cap I plan on wearing until it falls apart.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sizes are deceiving, March 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Large/Extra Large size I ordered was more like a Extra Large/Extra, Extra Large. New Era hats are never quite what you expect them to be. I'd recommend heading to a store that sells caps and trying out sizes before taking a shot in the dark and ordering them online.
