RATING AND REVIEWS

Best Hat for Summer

5

I've worn a lot of hats over the years, but on a hot summer day there's no other hat but this. Excellent sun protection, but doesn't make your head super hot. It's amazing how well the hat ventilates.

Better than I expected

I was looking for a hat that would protect me from the July Orlando Florida sun while visiting Disney with my Family. This hat is PERFECT for keeping to sum off your face and is comfortable. There is great visibility also for a hat with a brim this large.

The Best

I own two of these hats. Simply the best I have ever used. I have 20 years as a fishing guide and this is my go to on the boat. Excellent coverage.

Perfect hat

5

Bought this hat for a summer trip to Florida. Wore it for at least six hours each day, both in the pool and ocean. It kept its shape, dried nicely, never faded and was very comfortable. It was water resistant despite breathing well. The front brim protects your face while the larger back brim protects your neck. Love this hat and will travel with it for years. It was so unique with the wide brim that quite a few people asked me where I purchased it. Oh the XL size fit my large head!

What is the width of the brim?

Garth

Hi Garth, The Center Front and Sides brim length starts at 3" for a size Medium, and increases 1/8" for each additional size up. The Center Back brim length is 4 1/8" for the Medium and Large, and 4 1/4" for the XL. Thanks for contacting OR,

Paul

Can the Sombriolet be rolled into a tube shape for packing?

MorganAnderson

Hi MorganAnderson, Rolling the hat might cause the piping along the brim and the foam in the brim to deform. You might be able to reshape the brim with steam or placing the hat on a flat surface and weighing the brim with flat heavy items (such as books). Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

How should I wash this hat? I don't want to loose the shape, so I assume just soak/hand wash?

The Keans

Hi The Keans, Yes hand washing the hat with a mild detergent would be best. You might be able to use the top rack of a dishwasher, however, the water temperature may be too hot for the hat. Thanks for contacting OR!

Hi OR, Do you have any recommendations for straightening out the brim on my sunbriolet? Thanks, Dan

Dan

Hi Dan, if you have a steamer then you can use that to straighten out the brim. If you don't have a steamer, but have an iron with the steamer function place the hat between two towels on a flat surface. The steam from the iron should help straighten the brim, while the towels act as a barrier so you don't burn or melt your hat. Rotate and steam as needed. Hope that helps, thanks for contacting OR!

does not mention the mesquito repelent quality? that is on the tag

Mark

The Sombriolet Sun Hat does not have any insect-repellent properties, but our Sentinel Brim Hat does: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/sentinel-brim-hat/p/2433810800008

How many inches is the brim in the front? How many inches is the brim on the side? How many inches is the brim in the back?

Fil

In size L, the brim is 3" at the front and sides and 3.75" at the back.

Jordan

I am a 24-1/2 circumference measurement. I do want it falling off my head and will use it while golfing. I am in Kansas and the wind does blow. I wear a S/M sun hat in the North Face Breeze. Could I expect the Large in the SOMBRIOLET SUN HAT to fit the same? Also do you have anything else that would give me the protection while golfing and not have the brim bothered as much by the wind?

Tom

I'd probably recommend getting the Sombriolet Sun Hat in XL, because it has a circumference measurement of 24.5". It's a great option for golfing!

Jordan

If the brim gets wet, will it sag? Want to wear it outside but if it rains, or if it gets wet in the pool, will the brim just droop? Want something that offers great sun protection but will also handle being wet. Is there a better hat out there that offers sun protection plus can get wet? Thanks.

Matty Daddy

Our wide-brimmed hats all have foam in the brim to give it structure, and this foam may cause the brim to sag when it absorbs water.

Jordan

how to determine hat size? the size chart says to measure around head, but numbers seem like hat sizes, not head size. whose head it 7 inches around??

tere

I'd go by the "CIRCUM" measurements on the size chart at the bottom of this page: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/size-and-fit
