- Better than any rain hood (Review by Marc)
I live in Seattle and I got this hat so I could wear it instead of a hood because it is Waterproof. I really couldn't be happier. The hat has withstood the heaviest of rains and the brim drips water off much better than any hood I could wear. The fold-able aspect of this hat is beautiful because it fits in my back pocket perfectly in case of a surprise shower. This is the first hat of this style I have owned and I am still not sure how I feel about the aesthetic of it, but I love the subtle blue color it comes in(matches with almost anything) and the design is very practical for being a hugely versatile hat. The only down side of this hat is that it could never be as warm as a beanie and could never replace a beanie in the winter. Though it is much more useful for a sunny and snowy day it leaves the ears bare and cold.
