- Awesome Hat (Review by Paul)
This is a great hat. It throws a bunch of shade and has great ventilation also. It is my go to if I need tons of shade and still need some style. Only caution would be when you wash the hat. Let it dry on a flat surface or the sides tend to develop a wave. It can be fixed by just wetting the hat again.

- Great Hat (Review by deMag)
Oh yea, this hat went to the Outback in Australia...hot dry and desert. Wore it every day, comfy, lightweight, and protective. In the Northern Territory, even with the hot and muggy, was comfortable and airy. Glad to have it for the future, even a hot and breezy day at the beach in New England would be a good day for this hat.

- Sombriolet Sun Hat (Review by By River Guide)
This is a nice hat for shade but the hat is not useable in conditions where the wind exceeds about 10 mph. Wind pushes the brim of the hat either up or down over the user's eyes.

- Sombriolet Sun Hat (Review by By Hoopvol)
I bought this hat 3 months ago. I am an Assistant Scoutmaster with the Boy Scouts and after a few outings in the hot sun I decided I needed something better that would block the sun and provide ventilation at the same time. This hat does great at both. I wear it outside working or playing, when I mow, and a week at summer camp. The brim is wide enough to block the sun. The four vents are great for allowing air to flow through, helping to keep you cool. The hat does have a stiff rim around the brim, but I can still roll it up and pack it away when I need to. It also has an adjustable draw string to adjust the fit of the hat.My brother likes it so much that he ordered himself one. Another of the Assistant Scoutmasters is getting himself one also. I have recieved a lot of positive comments about the hat. I did a lot of research on this hat and several others. I am very happy I bought this hat. I would definitely buy this hat again.

Styling is great. Brim size is more practical on the Helios. Love the way the brim stays flat and not wavy like on the Helios. Can be a bit floppy in a moderate breze. It does block the sun well but, in the central Mississippi heat nothing will keep you cool. I think piping in the Helios to give the brim more shape would be the perfect size and weight hat.

I first bought the Sombriolet Sun Hat for a 5-day backpacking trip to Canyonlands National park (red rock desert). This hat is lightweight, packable, sturdy, stylish, and very breathable. The netting in the crown of the hat keeps ya very cool with the added help of four, yes 4, slits for venting. I also found the cord for a tighter fit useful when the wind was howling.

I live in Texas where we see some really hot days. This hat is always in my pack during the spring and summer months. It virtually eliminates the need for sun screen on my face and neck. The quick drying fabric does a great job of wicking away any sweat. It has vents on top to increase the breathability.

The brim size gives very good protection without being too big. The brim stiffener helps avoid wierd shapes. It packs flat.
