Greattt hat

GREAT hat

Princeton, bc

Solid Sunhat for Fieldwork and Hiking

5

I've worn the Helios Sun Hat for many years while doing fieldwork as a wildlife biologist and adventuring during my free time. It works well as a sunhat and I like that the brim is fairly rigid so it doesn't flop down.

Yes

Great sun protection...at high noon

The brim is very shallow so you're not going to get protection from the sun unless it is directly overhead. And this hat is HOT. Doesn't seem to breathe well at all.

A good hat

4

A good lightweight piece that fits well. I ended up returning it because I needed something slightly different, but of similar hats I've tried this was the simplest and streamlined.

Yes

The reference for all techy sun hats.

I've been relying on baseball caps and hair—beard and head—for sun protection long enough. When I roll up to the trailhead parking to hit the trail, the sun stares down on my as if it is saying, "how about a little skin cancer, bro?" Now I grab my Helios hat—in a nice grey color to match my backpack, and say, "No way sol amigo, not this time."

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.

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.
