Takes Abuse Like Your Favorite Pair Of Boots
COLOR cafe
SIZE: 1size
Infinite Guarantee
Everyone has that one hat that was so great—until it got smashed or folded the wrong way just once and never looked quite the same. This is not that hat. Fold the brim and it comes right back. Smash it in the side of your backpack and walk five miles, and it will rebound—as well as breathe and wick moisture.

Great lightweight vented hat


I use this hat on a daily (non-winter) basis. It is very lightweight and has a fully vented rear. This hat is very comfortable and keeps my face out of the sun. I'm not fussy with a flat brim style but this hat is designed to be crushed and collapsed and then be able to be shaken out and worn so that is the purpose over a fixed style. Highly recommend this hat if you're looking for some protection from the sun and heat.



My new favorite hat


This hat is awesome!!!! The lower profile crown fits my head great. I normally wear Mediums in sized hats. I am going to buy again in the other color. I've used it already for a trail run and just kicking back. I also plan to use it on my hunt out west later this year. Seriously, BUY THIS HAT!!!

I was going to love this hat, but...


Well, I really wanted to love this hat. So much so that after the first one I bought from Backcountry got lost in the mail, I ordered another overnight just to have it in time for a hiking trip. When the second hat came I was thrilled with the looks and fit of the hat. But, and this is a big but, I was shocked to discover that there is no adjustability in the hat at all. Just a plastic buckle that clips or unclips, that's it. So, after wearing the house around the house for the night I decided that even though the hat didn't adjust, that it fit well (read: snug) enough to keep. Fast forward to the next day, I throw on my new hat and head out hiking for the weekend. About an hour into my hike I reach the first overlook of the day and whoosh, a gust of wind comes along and blows my new hat off my head and subsequently right off of a 200+ ft cliff. I just can't for the life of me understand why OR would make this hat non-adjustable. It is advertised as a "snap-back" design, which I guess it technically is, but it is not what most would recognize as such.

Best EVER!


This is my favorite hat ever. I use it for everything from bouldering and gym climbing to on the skin track during long uphill approaches while split boarding to casual everyday wear. Its always in my pack and is easily my go to hat. Flexible brim means it wont pop off my head on the rock wall. Easily the best feature is that it is fully washable. I have washed mine numerous times and unlike other comments it shows no wear. Hats used for active use get gross but not this one. Might run a little small for some but fits me perfectly. Would love to see it in more colors!!!

Great hat!


First weeken I had this hat and it was great! From hiking mountain trails to a hot open field for a blues festival it kept me cool and protected. Looks great too, even wore it to a nice Thai restaurant in the middle of it all. Functional and stylish - will be wearing this on the trails, kayaking and in town as well.

Great flexible bill


I like the thought of this cap. The bill is flexible and soft. The only thing I don't like is the size adjustment buckle. It should be Velcro instead of a plastic buckle. While the buckle functions perfectly, the strap sometimes adjusts on its own when I take it off. It slips occasionally. Use Velcro next time. The cap is so soft and then you put a hard buckle. The retro fit in fatigue color is great.

Excellent hat for everyday


Great hat, worn it several days fishing and hiking. It's light weight and breathes well. I have a very small head for a dude and have trouble finding hats that fit, this one has a slightly smaller than normal fit and is perfect for me. Only con is the fabric on the outside face tends to wrinkle up and doesn't look as smooth as the photos. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars.

The perfect trail running hat!


The quest for the perfect hat is over! Usually when I wear a hat while I'm hiking or running the hat just absorbs all my sweat once it's reached its threshold the extra sweat runs down my face and into my eyes. I usually have to wear a buff under my hats to combat this but now I don't have to! This hat is so lightweight and breathable it's like I'm not wearing a hat at all. I also have a really small head and have a hard time finding hats that aren't giant on me. This one fits perfectly! I love how easily this folds up into my pack or running vest and when it gets nasty I can just throw it in the wash. My only complaint is that all the design is really plain. I wish there were more fun colors and graphics like the rest of OR's trucker hats. Then I could definitely justify adding more of these hats to my collection!

shrunk badly after 1 washing...


Used for trail running exclusively. Washed it after 2 uses, in warm water, and it shrunk to a size where it wouldn't fit an infant.

I'm wondering what the UPF rating of this hat is? Since the back is ventilated, does it have a lower UPF than the front half? I understand that will not protect portions of my face, my neck, my ears, but will it protect the crown of my head from dangerous sun rays?


the hat is UPF 50+ on the crown and bill, the mesh back would not have a UPF rating, hoping this helps! you can check out our trucker sun cape for a great addition to cover the back of your neck and head!


The reviews of this hat make it out to be really small. Is it adjustable?


the performance trucker- trail has an adjustable back, and a low profile (shorter crown height)


Will this hat float?


Hi DonBo, this hat does not float. Thanks for contacting OR!

Would you consider this a "low profile" type hat like the swift? Also is the buckle that adjusts like the buckle on the swift?


The crown is a bit shorter than that of a typical trucker cap, so it's a little lower profile. The strap at the back of the hate is adjustable; the buckle is slightly different than that of the Swift Cap though.
