RATING AND REVIEWS

Awesome hat for a kid.

5

Great hat; keeps the sun off the face and neck. The only drawback is that my 2yo doesn't like to wear hats...

If you have a kid who goes outside, buy this hat

My son has LIVED in his two Helios hats. If you have a kid who likes to be outside, this will be the best investment you make! It provides a TON of sun protection and manages to stay on with an incredibly active kid. I can't recommend this product enough.

Best hats ever - buy it

5

This is the best kids sun hat ever. Kids love it, its light, it protects them from the sun, it adjusts, they can swim it in, it keeps it shape, its breathable, it lasts for years. Our kids have had theirs for years and have used them extensively in hot tropical sun, both on land and while swimming. Even when soaking wet in the pool, it keeps it shape and the kids keep them. If you want to protect your kids from harmful sun exposure, this product is what you need.

great hat; bring back the other colors!

My two kids have each been wearing this hat for three years and I have nothing but good things to say. The adjustable cinch around the crown is handy, and the adjustable chin strap has been terrific in windy situations (e.g. boats). My only complaint is that Outdoor Research seems to often discontinue colors. My daughter has been wearing the color "Crocus" (pink) and my son "Diablo" (orange), but no similar bright colors are currently available. I especially liked the orange hat for my son, because it made it much easier to spot him on the playground or in a crowd. So I hope they bring these types of colors back.

Nice "first big girl" hiking hat

5

Purchased this for our 4 year old grand-daughter who was balking at having to have her old toddler sunhat tied under her chin. This is her first "big girl" hat that she can adjust to exactly the right tightness with the chin strap and slide.

Does the job today and tomorrow

I bought this for my 9 month old to wear when we are outside. The drawstring adjustment let me cinch it down to the correct size for my infants head and will allow it to adjust as he grows. I tried it on my 5 year-old nephew and it fit him too. The breakaway chin strap gives me peace of mind knowing that if it gets caught on something my son will be safe. Additionally, the hat is breathable and my son did not sweat a lot while wearing it. The brim offers more than enough face and neck protection.

Is the kid's helios hat suitable as a rainhat?

The Kids' Helios Sun Hat is not waterproof. I'd look at the Kids' Voyager Rain Hat instead: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/kids-voyager-rain-hat/p/2435200757007
