RATING AND REVIEWS

Great Hat

4

I have a small head and the totally adjustable headband makes it a great fit. Also love that rain cover. The only thing I don't like is the fastener on the chin strap. It does not make the chin strap very secure. It needs a barrel squeeze one on it to make the hat stay on better.

Update of Original Review

4

So far I still have the hat and it still works like it should. My only suggestion is that there be a way to secure the rain cover to the hat (maybe some velcro or a few buttons?) as it doesn't seem secure in blowing rain and I'm constantly checking to make sure the cover is still there. Still functioning really well, holding up to the sun really well, too. Thinking of getting my mother one also!

Great Hat

I have a very small head and finding a hat that fits is difficult. This hat with its velcro adjusting headband works great. I also love the rain cover that is included. I haven't had to use the rain cover yet but do agree with another review that it is hard to fold it up without it looking like a ball. I really do love this hat and my only recommendation would be to change the thing that is on the chin strap to one that is more stable. I took off the one that came with it and put on a barrel squeeze one and it really does stay on my head now even in the wind.

So far, So good.

I got this hat recently and am so far digging it. I must not have read the description enough because I didn't realize the rain cover was removable, but I like the idea of the feature. It fits well, so the sizing chart is quite accurate for this one in my experience. It's a little warm in the sun, even with ventilation, but such an essential that it's pretty easy to overlook as a person who burns easily. I live in a pretty sunny place and haven't had much rain use out of it at the moment, but in the light rain I've used it in, it's worked as it should. I like that you could essentially treat the rain cover with other rain gear using waterproofing treatment and you're not treating the full hat. The storage pocket for the rain cover is great, it doesn't fall out while you are wearing it. It seems a little bulky when it's stuffed in there and seems to weigh the back of the hat down a little, but you could really stuff it in a coat pocket as an alternative. However, now that I'm used to wearing it with a little bulk at the back, it's basically a non issue. It doesn't impede the view, either. So far, a solid purchase and I would recommend it for someone looking for a multi-purpose sombrero.

good over all need some tweaks

Sombrero w/ Pertexᆴ rain cover is a great hat that definitely keep the sun off. It does it's job. The rain cover works well and, also keeps the head warm in single and -0 degree weather. The few thinking I think that need to be tweaked are A) the mesh side panels need work they don't breath well unless in direct wind. B) The Pertexᆴ rain cover how do you refold in pocket with out it looking or feeling like a ball? instructions on how to refold to original shape would have been nice. Also, some sort fixture to attach the cover to the hat. In windy conditions and after placing cover on and so ware of the hat the cover wouldn't stay secured and had to use the hood of my coat to hold my cover on my hat in winter. C) The hat dose not was very well and sweat

Great hat and amazingly light

4

I hike in Santa Monica Mountains and needed a hat to protect me from the rain and sun and this hat fits the bill. It is extremely light (I hardly know that it is on my head) and fits my big head really well. The chin strap is also very comfortable. My only complaint is that a strong wind gust blew up under the brim and blew off the rain cover. Luckily I was able to recover it. It turns out that the rain cover is held on with an elastic band that is not strong enough to combat a strong wind gust. OR should have included velcro fasteners to secure it. I plan on adding these fasteners myself. I am hoping that OR will include velcro fasteners in the next generation of this hat.
