This hat works

This hat was a gift for my husband, a painter. He likes the packability, the lightweight fabric and the darker fabric under the brim which helps cut glare. I have the same hat for hiking and gardening. It's bomb.

Please make 50/50 like multicam version!!!

I've got two Helios hats! The 50/50 multi cam hat is my favorite due to the materials used! It holds its shape better and looks better. The 86/14 regular helios is cooler in the heat - but it tends to poof up and look odd. Don't get me wrong - both are VERY good, durable hats. I've tried to wear them out. I just can't wear my favorite multicam hat everywhere.... I save that for true outdoor adventures. I want one just as perfect for everything else. For now my regular Helios works...but I know OR can do better!!

Good so far

I chose this hat because it was packable and washable. I like the cord option for wind. It would be nice to have mesh for ventilation. I like the light blue color but see that it is not available any longer. Being winter, I haven't had much chance to wear it yet.

outstanding product

Purchased this hat over a decade ago for backcountry use. I have used it in deserts, heavy rainfall (dries fast), windy weather (draw cord is great for this), on glaciers and cascade mountain ascents for sun protection, traveled everywhere with it overseas. It folds nicely, lightweight, stitching has never come undone considering the heavy use. Retains it's shape when unpacked from extended storage. I live in eastern WA and jog with it as summers can average high 90's F. Great hat, it has never let me down.

Outstanding Cover

Although Chinese-made, this product is very well made. It is fully-adjustable, provides ample shade and is lightweight. I hope I never lose it.

best hat I've ever owned

All around great hat. My 3 year old son started wearing my hat, so we've now got 4 of them in our house.

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.
