RATING AND REVIEWS

Great hat!

5

Excellent hat! I love everything about it! I have a large head so finding a hat that fits is a huge achievement. Lol. I like the fact it's adjustable too so that when I'm hiking and the wind picks up I can just reach back there and give a little tug to snug it up so it doesn't blow off. I like the light weight, plus it's packable and I can be pretty hard on it and it still looks good! I like the air vents too.

The perfect hat. This feels so good and is light.

5

Great fit and it is very light but holds up great to the winds in Texas. I use mine because I had sun cancer on my nose and this was my choice.

Great hat!

Use this for personal and professional settings. Does a great job of keeping the sun off my neck. Great at keeping the occasional rain shower off my glasses.

Serious kit for serious people

If you take your gear seriously, this hat is worth every penny. Definitely built specifically for the sun... it is light, breathes well, has a full coverage brim that covers your neck thoroughly. Not as good as the venerable Seattle Sombrero (of which I have 3) in a rainstorm, but not too far from the mark. In the Sedona rock in the heat of summer, this thing was indispensable! It also bears mention, MULTICAM. Really great looking and catches compliments galore. Bought mine and the wife HAD to have one. Nicely done OR!

Best beach hat

Great hat for beach, pool, and just walking around after a day in the sun. I saw other reviews that the brim is too big, it's not! (If you want a smaller brim.... that's a different hat!)

I love these hats I have three or four of various colours..

I got mine all second hand and i love them. They are perfect for on a wheelchair the strap is wind proof from losing my hat by the wind of passing vehicles. I've not had a sunburn for years.

Brim shape does doesn't hold up.

Good material and generally quality construction. The execution on the brim stiffening is poor. It loses it shape and is seems impossible to get back into alignment.

Still the same great sun hat!

Bought this hat to replace a 10+ year OR Sombriolet Sun Hat and I'm so happy with the quality of my new hat. I have worn competitive brands and found that their wide brims are too floppy. The Sombriolet Sun Hat brim holds it shape after many washings. Additionally, my head stays cool when the the sun is bright and the temperature is 100+ degrees F.

Wacky brim

1

Good solar protection until washed and air dried when brim lost its shape and went wacky. Tried to iron it flat and rehash but won't work. Suggest different brim material.

What is the width of the brim?

Garth

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,

Paul

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

MorganAnderson

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

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

Mark

The Sombriolet Sun Hat does not have any insect-repellent properties, but our Sentinel Brim Hat does: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/sentinel-brim-hat/p/2433810800008

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?

Fil

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

Jordan

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?

Tom

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!

Jordan

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.

Jordan

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??

tere

I'd go by the "CIRCUM" measurements on the size chart at the bottom of this page: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/size-and-fit
