- Awesome (Review by Trailbeater)
I've had the Snoqualmie Sombrero for about 4 months. At first I thought it might look kind of dorky, but after wearing it in snowy, windy and rainy conditions I would say this is one of the best investments I've made in my outdoor gear. It keeps the rain off your head while not impairing your peripheral vision like the hood of your jacket does. The ear flaps are great when it is cold and windy. It might be too warm for summer hiking, but for winter hiking or hiking in the rain, it will always be with me.

I lived in Southeast Alaska for two years and this hat was a lifesaver. I used it mostly for kayaking and rafting, with temps between 40F-70F. It got a bit hot to have on when the temp went up, but you can easily fold the ear-flaps into the upper part of the hat, which is a great feature. I've used it in the pouring rain and in constant day-long steady rains, and this hat kept my head 100% dry and warm. This hat is perfect for any cold water/rain expected adventures. If you're looking for something to use primarily in warmer weather, I would look at the other models because this hat will be too warm. The only improvement I can see is adding a bug head net that zips into the brim, or stitching in some of that bug repellent fabric that's out these days. Overall A+.

Used on duty several years. Folds up and fits in duty coat pocket. Does not block periferal vision or sound. Easily ties snugly, won't blow off in wind, especially with earflaps down. Fleece lining is warm!
