Outdoor Research says:
The Storm AscentShell Rain Cap is an evolution of our 3-layer waterproof, air permeable, fully seam-taped AscentShell™ technology, now in a shallow low-profile ballcap style hat for rainy hikes and runs. Breathable enough to work hard without worrying about sweat building up, and protective enough to shed wet weather clear from your face, this is the ultimate rain cap.

Outdoor Research's Storm AscentShell Rain Cap is light-weight, waterproof and breathable cap. This uses AscentShell waterproof fabrics that has been hugely successful across a number of OR jackets due to the balance of air permeability and level of waterproofing. The cap has a good level of stretch for a waterproof piece which adds a lot comfort wise.
It has a crushable peak which makes stowing it away easy when you're on the move. The simple elastic webbing on the back gives a decent enough hold and this cap works well for anything from hiking to trail running.
