- Papyrus Brim Hat (Review by By Travelin' Joe)
This hat would rate five stars if the brim were a little stiffer. As it is, on windy days it tends to flip up, even though the brim is lined on the bottom. Other than that, it is a perfect sun hat for outdoor activities. The 360 degree venting allows heat to escape no matter which way the wind is blowing. The bottom of the top of the hat is also lined to protect the top of the head. It packs down to practically nothing in a suitcase, but pops right back into shape when you take it out. The brim is wide enough to provide shade for most of the head and neck, and always stays flat and stylish. Another great hat by Outdoor Research.
