    Hey, I know you've mentioned that they are not for sale. But, at least I'm trying. :) I'm really interested in some of your collection. Please send me an email to davidwilsontennis@hotmail.com if you don't mind. I could give you an offer. Thanks in advance. :)

    my new addition.
    mahogany color is better than I thought. it matches well with smoke colors and others.

    I've seen that hat from several Asian stores and looks like it was 2008 model. Had a item number but can't find it now.

    Nice hats! Were they from a Nike Factory Store?

    By the way, the hyper blue is on the left and the glass blue is on the right.
    I just ordered two shirts, one of each color! Woo!
    My Nadal Double Bold Polo in Hyper Blue should be here by tomorrow or Friday. I'm just hoping the XL I bought is not too big. All I know is that I wear an XL (and they are even tight on my shoulders) in his 09 AO shirt and 09 Dubai shirt. Hopefully it is not too big........ :|

    I have the Winter Masters polo which is the same as the bold open polo, but different colorway and it fits true to size.

    Anyone want a Nadal hyper blue bold open polo in XL? :???:
    But seriously, hopefully it fits OK. I am a large in most Nike stuff, including all of Fed's 09 gear (but not his 08 gear - XL), so I am a tad worried.

    i think it might be a bit big, but then again maybe your tall so it might work out? I'm also L for the most part, but sometimes I can get a way with an M depending on the cut.

    Yes! the hyper blue is on the left and the glass blue is on the right.
    Actually, not really sure that 338 is glass blue....
    I got it from a local store. the store always has a clear big box which they put clearance hats for $10 so people can see through what kind of hats are in the box. usually, the box does not have nike Dri-fit hat but when I passed by the box, I saw some kind of nike hat. was not sure so I pull the hat from the part of box. viola! it's the dri fit hat and priced at $10.

    I'm just saying, hope I'm wrong. I mean if you fit an L, than XL might be too much. It's true to size. I have the sunny polo and that one is more snug on me. The Masters, fits really nice.

    Well, the XL is too big. Fit me really loose and baggy. I did not like it.
    At least my glass blue sleeveless shirt looks great!
    1 out of 2 is not too shabby!

    Oh well, can't win them all.

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I'm selling it now. As much as I wanted to keep it, it was just too big.

    Cheers!

    There are many reasons. Someone might collect hats. Someone might try to match the color with their apparels. Someone might be too lazy to wash hats too often etc.... ^_^

    I really find you have to hand wash the hats. Htey get beat if you throw the in the washer.

    Am looking to get a RF cap.... how do the Featherlites compare to the Hybrids (grey w/ federer back) and Non-hybrids (?? eg. black cap w/ white monograms) in terms of durability and mantaining its form/structure?

    I'm asking this cos the Featherlites don't look like they can last.

    Anyone?

    i Played with my new Vapor VI's today the black/silver. I had the complete opposite experience to what everyone else had. I thought the black colorways were leff stiff that the whites ones I got. I wore them right out of the box to a 2 set singles match with a buddy of mine. I really like how they grip the court and they nice and snug in n my feet.

    I machine wash all my FeatherLights!!! The full poly is just like any of my tennis clothes. I come home from playing, throw my clothes in the laundry (including my hats), and hit the showers. My FeatherLights end up in the wash just like any clothes. After a wash, they're good as new. I still have hats from '05 still in great shape.

    I just got mine in today and I agree. I thought they would be way more plastic-like than they were. I had a little bit of sore feet from stretching the shoes out, but then again I had the same experience with my Breathe Cage II and Breathe cage I. Nice shoes! I am looking forward to playing a match in them.

    Cheers!

    I'm sure they will start to ease up a bit on our feet after some more time.

    hey innovashaun,

    how's everything, hombre? Lost my password, so i created another account. Could always count on you. ;)

    DO the hybrids and non-hybrids hold up for tennis/running?

    I can answer for the FeatherLights. They do hold up well. After a good soaking of sweat, I toss them in the wash. I can't answer for the Hybrids because I'm not a fan of them.

    I washed a Fed hybrid hat in the machine... :-( Don't do it. The FeatherLight ones hold up, the hybrids don't. Hand wash hybrids.

    I found another nike dri fit hat (616:red) from the box
    [​IMG]

    I don't wear fed hats but keep it as collectible items.
    [​IMG]

    these hats are softer than dri fit or hybrid. it's 60% cotton and 40% polyester. have not tried yet though. very comfortable.
