- Sunshower Sombrero™ (Review by By Encinoman)
I hike in Santa Monica Mountains and needed a hat to protect me from the rain and sun and this hat fits the bill. It is extremely light (I hardly know that it is on my head) and fits my big head really well. The chin strap is also very comfortable. My only complaint is that a strong wind gust blew up under the brim and blew off the rain cover. Luckily I was able to recover it. It turns out that the rain cover is held on with an elastic band that is not strong enough to combat a strong wind gust. OR should have included velcro fasteners to secure it. I plan on adding these fasteners myself. I am hoping that OR will include velcro fasteners in the next generation of this hat.
