- Love love love this hat (Review by Tgrabs)
Never again will I backpack with a stupid fabric baseball cap that get's soaked and heavy when it rains. This is the perfect cap for backpacking. It is super lightweight, and waterproof. I just used it for the first time on a 7 days backpacking trip on Isle Royale. It kept my head dry and weighs about half what a typical baseball cap weighs. We had couple of cold rainy days and it performed perfectly. It did get a little toasty on warm, humid days while climbing the Greenstone Ridge but that's to be expected. I love it. LOVE it.

Use this hat for paddling,hiking and trail running. Excellent purchase. Hat is deeper than most which is a huge plus and adds to the overall quality fit of this perfect product. Keeps my head dry in Class IV rapids. I even wear this hat casually as well. I would definately recommend this to all paddlers and trail runners. The wicking capabilities of this hat are phenomenal!

- Revel Cap™ (Review by By Alan)
This hat was an excellent purchase. Nice color is something I wear around town. When outside, the brim is wide enough to keep the sun out of my face. The fabric helps keep the water off, even when sprayed by a rogue wave when out on the boat. Used it in a few rain storms, and didn't even think to put my hood up because the hat was doing a good job shedding water. The band fits very well, and can snug down if you are in gusty conditions. It has some nice lightweight fabric that doesn't overheat your head.The only downside is that the hat is very large. Make sure to try it on when you are at the store before you make your purchase. If possible bring your sunglasses or anything else you may wear around your head to ensure the fit is right. This hat is so large that it usually puts pressure on my sunglasses, so by the end of the day it is starting to cause some pressure/pain where my glasses sit against my ear and nose. There is so much fabric that the band rubs on the tops of my ears, and it ends up puffing up above my head some, which can make it look a little odd. I have to snug the band down a little extra because I'm afraid the wind might pick up the extra fabric and make the hat take flight...

This hat stays in my pack year round, both for school and for the mountains. It's super lightweight, very breathable, and much more durable than you would think. I love this hat and the Pertex it uses to keep you dry. Fits great and has a deeper fit than most hats (much deeper than the Swift Cap), which keeps you covered and dry. Very highly recommended!
