RATING AND REVIEWS

Great hat!

5

I love this hat. It breathes great and completely protected me from the sun.

Ain't no sun on me

Pretty good protection and looks good. Even wore it backwards on accident on the river but it still looked decent.

Big shade

5

Got this shade hat after being tired of the brim on my prior hat brand always flapping in breezy weather and basically being useless on windy days. This brim is very wide and stiff enough to withstand light to moderate winds without loosing shape. Elastic cinch strap around crown of hat helps keep it place. Loads of shade with plenty covering back of neck. Breathability is great with air slits in top on sides, front, and back. Inside is mesh with loose nylon exterior covering over mesh interior. Sweat band on interior is a little loose, but it's not a big deal. Very good for outdoors use. I've hiked with it several times now.

Great for sun and rain

Really comfy hat that breathes really well. Not as waterproof as the Seattle Sombrero obviously but still does a great job.

Sturdy Sun Hat

Great Hat and keeps shape in wind. Fits perfect and looks good. I did get a chance to get the all nylon one and it is one ounce lighter than this hat. I would wear this hat for more harder wear like bushwhacking. Also, would wear this one in shoulder season over the lighter one.

Fantastic sun protection for long days in the field.

5

I wear this hat daily for work in the field. Typically full sun all day - I have yet to get a sunburn on my face, ears, or neck (even when I forget to wear sunscreen!). It holds up really well in the wind and keeps its shape. The lanyard/strap keeps snug under my chin and this hat stays put even in 30+ mph desert winds. I love the vents on the top - they keep my head cool without sacrificing sun protection.

Loving this hat

5

Great hat. It's held up well in the field and for casual wear. It's not the fastest thing in the world for drying out after rain, but it keeps its shape and doesn't feel soggy. This is the 3rd OR hat I've purchased. I like 'em all.

WITH OUT A DOUBT; THE BEST PERFORMING SUN HAT I EVER HAD!

5

I USE THIS WHEN IT IS EXTREMELY SUNNY AND HUMID OUT: WHICH IS VERY COMMON HERE IN THE NORTHEAST DURING SPRING/SUMMER MONTHS.IT VENTILATES EXTREMELY WELL AND SHADES YOU FROM THE BLINDING/INTENSE SUN THAT WE SO COMMONLY GET! HATS OFF TO OUTDOOR RESEARCH; BUT IF YOU DON"T MIND I'LL KEEP MINE ON FOR NOW!

Great Sun Protection.

Had to Seed & Fertilize my mom's yard(5 acres). Was awesome to keep the sun from Frying my neck like it did weeks before. Can't wait to take this on the trails with me.

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
