- Peruvian Hat™ (Review by By thementalcoach)
This is a great hat when hiking in cold and windy conditions. It keeps my head and ears warm, which is what I want it to do. If there is light to medium rain (or it's sunny) than I cover it with my OR Drifter Gore Tex hat. If it's heavy rain than I add my rain jacket hood. It's not really stylish (to me) but a warm head when hiking is what I want and this hat delivers.

- Peruvian Hat™ (Review by By ba)
For years, I wore a similar Gore-Tex Wind Stopper hat from another manufacturer. The cord lock on that hat was a large, barrel style, unlike the smaller & flatter cord lock on the OR Peruvian Hat. This may not seem like a deal breaker, but a large cord lock that puts pressure against the neck is not desirable. This hat is worn at least 90 minutes every day during cool & cold weather - roughly 4-5 months each year. For such a lightweight & thin hat, the wind protection is incredible. During blizzard conditions, a knit sock cap can be layered over the Peruvian Hat for additional warmth.Folded up, it stores in a tiny space. And it looks great while being worn.
