RATING AND REVIEWS

Not khaki but a effeminate yellow color!

1

I love OR products, but this item was not khaki but yellow. It is NOT the same color as pictured. My non-politically correct children (ages 7 and 9) immediately said "Dad, you're wearing a girls hat." Even my somewhat PC wife chuckled when she saw it on me. The hat itself seems great, but the color makes it look rather silly. I won't be wearing it.

Got it for a summer rafting trip. The strap will keep it from blowing away.

My hat of choice, for warm-season mountain forays

Use it for wildlife work in the mountains (6,000-12,000' elevation), across the West. I spend enough days outside, under full sun all day, that thinking about skin cancer is a must. These hats must earn their keep, when I get them -- they seem to do that !

Super sun hat

I originally bought this hat for a trip to Costa Rica. I wanted a hat to stuff in a bag, but be ready to go in hot/sunny weather. This worked great. The hat survives being smashed just fine and looks good hiking through the forest or hanging on the beach. I liked this hat so much that it has now become my go to hat for fair weather alpine adventures. It is light enough that I don't mind carrying it. Or stuffing it in a pack when it is time to wear a helmet.

I own two and rarely go a day without them.

I cannot tell you how much I love the papyrus hat. I am a master naturalist and thus spend a good deal of time in the field throughout the year. The papyrus is everything I need out of a full coverage sun hat, which breathes remarkably well and dries quickly. It's easy to reshape it (just add water), if you're going for the Indiana Jones look or it simply gets crushed.

Sadly disappointed

I bought this hat as a sun hat for out in the yard. As such it does the job that it is supposed to do, it is light, and provides good sun protection to the head, neck and shoulders. I normally have trouble with "one size fits all" hats because, in my case, that usually means "won't fit". This hat fit well, so I selected true to size. My first problem with this hat was that it came in a plastic bag in a box but box and hat were both squashed. I thought the hat would spring back into shape but it hasn't and the crown still looks squashed. The brim was also misshapen and I seem to spend quite a bit of time playing with the brim when I'm wearing it. This is meant to be a casual hat so that probably doesn't bother some people. I only wanted it for summer gardening so the squashing is not a huge problem but it irritates me. The main problem with the hat is the material that it is constructed from. I am not sure how waterproof it is. It certainly absorbs sweat and shows stains. Also, with my use in the garden, I tend to take it off with dirty hands and I am not sure how well it will stand up to being cleaned.

I might buy this again.

When I received this hat it was very out of shape. Since I have been wearing it, it still doesn't hold its shape very well. I use it for fishing and at work.

Good warm weather hat

Nice hat for hot, humid weather but I wouldn't subject it to any sort of rough use. One of the threads on the peak of the hat had a loose end that popped free not long after I got it. The hat is still in one piece and the loose end isn't particularly noticeable but just the same, it's something to consider. Best to buy this one on sale.

Well made but too hot in humid climates

In the humid and hot Southeast, finding a breathable hat that has sun protection and is as cool as bare headed might be impossible. If you use the hat anywhere else, you'll probably like it. I like Outdoor Research products for winter use...

Can this Papyrus Brim hat be cleaned or washed in any manner to remove sweat stains? Thanks Ray

Ray

Hi Ray, We recommend that you try spot cleaning it with a clean, damp cloth. To remove perspiration stains, wipe the area with a clean damp white cloth as soon as possible after wearing to prevent body salts and oils from staining the straw. For stains around the sweatband, use 1/2 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 teaspoon of warm water on light colored straw. For dark straw, use 1/2 teaspoon of ammonia and 1/4 cup warm water. Use a soft-bristled brush - an old toothbrush - and work on a small area - one to two inches - at a time. Clean and then blot with a white towel dampened with water. Allow the area to dry completely before wearing again. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

Can this hat be embroidered? I see it is embroidered on the band is there room for more embroidery on the band and/or can the papyrus material be embroidered?

Alaina

Hi Alaina, we recommend that you do not embroider the paper straw material. Embroidering the band or a applying a sewn on patch would probably work best on this hat. Thanks for contacting OR!
