RATING AND REVIEWS

A trusted sun hat

5

This hat is great for sun protection when traveling in the rainforest, savanna, and boating. And also for gardening.

Favorite hat

Great, lightweight hat for the outdoors

Love this product, wide brim to keep the sun from getting to your head, scalp, ears, and part of your neck. Super lightweight, soft, collapsible, and stylish, in my opinion. Would recommend for sun exposure, probably not that great for rain or cold weather exposure.

Great way to hide from the sun

Breaths fairly well. Keeps the sun off ya like you would expect. Got it on sale and would buy it again if I needed to replace it.

Great hat for the lake & boating

Great hat for summers on the lake and boating. Light material isn't too heavy for hot days and gives better shade from sun than baseball cap.

Love the hat. Brim is a great size as it isn't too large but helps shade my ears.

I have had many similar hats, but this one is my new #1 for outdoor protection and comfort. Very comfortable and light weight. Great protection from the sun.

The mens medium seems to run a bit large compared to the measurements on website even with tightening the pull string.

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.
