Hardy hat


The fabric is thicker than I expected, but it still breathes well and keeps the heat off my head. It's perfect for fieldwork and would be good for boating as well. It's much less dorky than most sun hats I've seen.



It Could Not Be Better - Highly Recommend


The Sombriolet Sun Hat is an excellent choice for protection from the sun, looking stylish and comfortable wear. It is the best hat in its category that I have owned. A must to have.

Great Buy


Only reason I gave it a 4 and not a 5 star is because the size seems a bit small from what I'm used to.

I would buy this hat again


I'm out trail walking nearly every day. This sun hat provides great sun protection while being very light, comfortable and adjustable.

LOVE this hat!!


I burn very easily and searched a GGOD hat to protect me, with large protection around, and neck protectioj too. Found some in store near me but nothing was large enough. This one is what i was looking for!

sweet sun hat!


bought this hat for a river rafting trip in july. it was the absolute best! stayed in great shape even when hit with water in the rapids. so glad i got it!



G'day mate


This is not the hat you want, it's the hat you need. Skin cancer and sun damage are real. This hat breathes well and has a good wide brim. 4.5 stars I still prefer my boonie hat for short sun jaunts, but for anything else, from now on I'm taking this bad boy with me. The brim is a little larger than i would like, but hey, I'm 50 years old and choose sensibility over vanity. You will look like an Aussie tourist, practice your accent.

Great sun protection without being hot


Kept me cool for a week in sunny Greece.



Great hat!

Very good hat for long, sunny hikes


Good, functional hats are hard to come by especially if one wants them to look semi-decent while serving its intended purpose well. This hat has a sufficiently wide brim, so that it shades the front of my face as well as the sides and my neck in most situations. I found this hat to be relatively weather resistant, although I have not yet tested it in full rain. The strap is easily adjustable and helps keep the hat on your head in at least mild to moderate wind.

Sombriolet Sun Hat

What is the width of the brim?


Hi Garth, The Center Front and Sides brim length starts at 3" for a size Medium, and increases 1/8" for each additional size up. The Center Back brim length is 4 1/8" for the Medium and Large, and 4 1/4" for the XL. Thanks for contacting OR,


Can the Sombriolet be rolled into a tube shape for packing?


Hi MorganAnderson, Rolling the hat might cause the piping along the brim and the foam in the brim to deform. You might be able to reshape the brim with steam or placing the hat on a flat surface and weighing the brim with flat heavy items (such as books). Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

How should I wash this hat? I don't want to loose the shape, so I assume just soak/hand wash?

The Keans

Hi The Keans, Yes hand washing the hat with a mild detergent would be best. You might be able to use the top rack of a dishwasher, however, the water temperature may be too hot for the hat. Thanks for contacting OR!

Hi OR, Do you have any recommendations for straightening out the brim on my sunbriolet? Thanks, Dan


Hi Dan, if you have a steamer then you can use that to straighten out the brim. If you don't have a steamer, but have an iron with the steamer function place the hat between two towels on a flat surface. The steam from the iron should help straighten the brim, while the towels act as a barrier so you don't burn or melt your hat. Rotate and steam as needed. Hope that helps, thanks for contacting OR!

does not mention the mesquito repelent quality? that is on the tag


The Sombriolet Sun Hat does not have any insect-repellent properties, but our Sentinel Brim Hat does:


How many inches is the brim in the front? How many inches is the brim on the side? How many inches is the brim in the back?


In size L, the brim is 3" at the front and sides and 3.75" at the back.


I am a 24-1/2 circumference measurement. I do want it falling off my head and will use it while golfing. I am in Kansas and the wind does blow. I wear a S/M sun hat in the North Face Breeze. Could I expect the Large in the SOMBRIOLET SUN HAT to fit the same? Also do you have anything else that would give me the protection while golfing and not have the brim bothered as much by the wind?


I'd probably recommend getting the Sombriolet Sun Hat in XL, because it has a circumference measurement of 24.5". It's a great option for golfing!


If the brim gets wet, will it sag? Want to wear it outside but if it rains, or if it gets wet in the pool, will the brim just droop? Want something that offers great sun protection but will also handle being wet. Is there a better hat out there that offers sun protection plus can get wet? Thanks.

Matty Daddy

Our wide-brimmed hats all have foam in the brim to give it structure, and this foam may cause the brim to sag when it absorbs water.


how to determine hat size? the size chart says to measure around head, but numbers seem like hat sizes, not head size. whose head it 7 inches around??


I'd go by the "CIRCUM" measurements on the size chart at the bottom of this page:
