RATING AND REVIEWS

Awesome Hat!

5

This is an excellent hat for sunny and hot weather. It keeps the sun off of you, while being extremely breathable and light weight. I have been using one for a couple of years now, and it has been incredibly durable.

Got the wrong colour, but who cares!

5

I got this for sun protection at work but I ordered the wrong colour. I don't care, because the hat is great. I should mention as well, I mistakenly ordered two. No factor, I'm keeping one and giving the other to a friend as a gift. I already own one in the olive colour, so my next one will be my third. They are just that good, and that comfortable. Highly recommended.

Solid hat, would buy again

Immediately upon donning the hat. An eagle soared down and dropped a fully cooked 32" trout onto a plate I didn't even see sitting in front of me. Grizzly bears now run from me, and elk eat from my hand. I wore the hat only to kill a giraffe with my bare hands. Unicorns are real...you can only see them.wearing this hat.

Perfect hat

This is the perfect hat that breathes and offers sun protection. I ran 30 kms with this hat and it was very comfortable, protected me from the sun and breathed well.

Excellent brim overhang and fit

5

perfect brim overhang size; not too large-not too small. I use this hat for climbing-hiking and hanging out. Overall performance is excellent and it so multi/purpose.THANK YOU OUTDOOR RESEARCH for such functional and durable products! I love the fit and it is not as stuffily hot as I thought it would be.This is not the only O.R.hat I own; and it won"t be the last.(A VERY SATISFIED O.R. END USER)

Solid hat

Bought this for my teenage son. He's worn it several times with no complaints. I question how breathable it is, but again, no complaints. So far it's a winner.

I USE THE HELIOS HAT ON SEMI SUNNY/OVERCAST DAYS USUALLY!

5

WHEN IT IS NOT VER HUMID OR THERE IS NOT 100% SUN GLARE I"LL USE MY HELIOS; BECAUSE IT DOESN"T VENT OR PROTECT AS MY CABRIOLET HAT. ONCE AGAIN; CERTAIN EQUIPMENT FOR CERTAIN CONDITIONS.FOR THE CONDITIONS I USE IT FOR IT PERFORMS EXTREMELY WELL.

true

It is a very good comfortable hat

5

Now that I have order my first hat from OR I realize that I am a large not a XL. It still fits because of adjustment but from now on Large will fit me better. I already order another different hat from them and it was a large and that fit perfectly.

does this hat come in a small size ? I previously had a medium, which fit fine, my head measures 21-3/4 around, ordered a new medium and it is way too big, even cinched down (returned it) I love my old hat -- would love another ! Also it seems the brim got wider too -- is this sized for men only ? thanks, Sue Pierce

Soup

Hi Soup, unfortunately the hat does not come in a size small. Originally the hat was designed for men, around Spring 2013 it became unisex model. However, the sizing for the hat has remained the same, 58 cm circumference for a size Medium (about 22.8"). Is it possible that you have the Kid's version of the hat? The brim is about 0.5" shorter on the kids version and the circumference is much smaller (about 20.9" vs 22.8"). If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] or call us at 1 855 967 8197. Thanks for contacting OR!

Brim size please

how breathable is this hat. I can't see any ventilation outlets.

michael

The Helios Sun Hat is quite breathable, but if you're looking for maximum breathability, I'd go with the Sol Sun Hat or Transit Sun Hat: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/sol-sun-hat/p/2434360740008 https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/transit-sun-hat/p/2434820771007

Any spiff instructions on proper cleaning and care of my new Helios Sun Hat? Right now it's new and clean. It will get grungy soon. I'd like to keep the brim from developing that wavy look to it. Normally, I just throw it in the washer and let air dry on a table. Would it be smarter to block it?

John

We recommend hand washing the hat to prevent the brim from deforming. If you decide to machine wash the hat and the brim loses its shape, you can place it between a couple towels and iron it to flatten it out.
