RATING AND REVIEWS

Warm, Versatile, Goofy Looking

5

I bought this for backpacking, hoping that the over the ear coverage would be convenient in my sleeping quilt and keep my ears warm on cooler summer nights and mornings. I have used it a few times on winter hikes and it has done well, and I wore it while camping in sub-freezing temps and it kept my head and ears perfectly warm down to 15 degrees, and it was in fact a little warm. It is not the most stylish hat ever, but it works as advertised.

Keeps your head warm in the wind

5

I've had mine since 2015. It was a smart purchase. I bought it to block the wind and to keep my ears warm while hiking 14ers. This hat did just that. It packs well and is always in my packs where ever I hike. I do a lot of winter biking and it fit perfectly under my bike helmet. Just recently I lost/misplaced it. I need to get another one fast. This hat will make your head warm. When your head is warm, you hike happy. Enjoy it and happy hiking.

Really effective winter hat, pair with neck gator!

5

This is an amazing hat for keeping warm in cold windy weather. The wind-stopper fleece will slightly muffle sound when the ear flaps are pulled down, but it is very effective at preventing heat loss from your head. It's surprisingly effective given how thin it is. I often wear it with the ear flaps over the tips of my ears but the strap tied above my head so I can hear clearly, but will pull the ear flaps down and tie under my chin for very effective protection against bitter cold wind. Great for winter hiking or just snow-blowing my driveway on a windy day. A tremendously effective combination is to pair this with a fleece neck gator, making it an adjustable balaclava. You can rotate the neck gator portion when it gets moist from breathing to present a new dry breathing area. The hat can be pulled up a bit to vent when working hard, then pulled down to keep heat in during a break.

Outdoor Research Peruvian Hat

Excellent hat for winter hiking. It is lighter than my other windstopper hats and dried better after exertion but still kept me warm. I have used it in single digits with my shell/hood and have been very comfortable. Best used while exerting, either skiing or climbing.

Goofy but great

5

It's definitely not the most stylish hat OR carries. However its function is great! This hate is for those nasty winter winds or when one beanie just won't do, you can layer this easily. It blocks wind well, I noticed the ear flaps kind of dampen sound as well. It's pretty soft and it's bee.n very useful.

Best Protection from Wind and Cold

5

Nothing can protect your head and ears from gnarly cold and wind like this hat. The material is thick and impenetrable. The shape hugs your head with great coverage. I use this for any winter days when a beanie just won't cut it. It doesn't look the coolest, but that doesn't matter if I'm playing in the snow. I usually wear it as a baselayer anyways. It hides perfectly under a big slouchy beanie- and then you're even cozier!

Good against wind and sound; not super warm

Handles wind quite well, I just wish it was a bit warmer...the fleece is kinda thin. Chin cord keeps it in place in very high winds; ear flaps do muffle sound quite a bit.

I wear a 7 5/8" cap, I ordered a large Peruvian hat. Is large the right size?

Swagger

Hi Swagger, The large may be too tight, the Ear Band Width is listed as 11.5". If we double that number we get 23" which is between a 7 1/4 and 7 3/8 hat size. The size XL has an ear band width of 12.25", it would be a little bit bigger than a 7 3/4" hat size and would fit more comfortably. Thanks for contacting OR,

Paul
