RATING AND REVIEWS

Great, breathable & functional hat

5

Great hat. I have several other similar summer hats, (including a couple Tilley's, which are well made). This is the most comfortable & functional one I own. I really like the cotton feel, but it still feels durable, (I hand wash my every couple weeks). The mesh brim is important to us desert-dwellers, this one is great, strong enough to keep the crown fairly up-right, (even when not wearing). Plus, you can gently roll it & stuff in side pockets of your pack, (it still retains it's shape). If I want max ventilation, I wear it backwards, as there's only a 4" solid piece in the front of the mesh crown. The chin strap is not spring loaded, (looks like it could slip of), if you'll be in strong winds, maybe replace it with a proper quick-release. This hat is super light, the brim is as big many, (not quite the 4" or so on a couple OR hats), and stay put in winds up to about 15mph, I'd guess, Even then, it flops back down in place, (small price to pay for a packable, quality hat). Highly recommend, I got the Sand Plaid, looks kinda cool, (& easy to locate being a lighter color), hasn't showed dirt too bad either. Happy trails, S2

Outdoor Research performs up to their standards again. Used on 2 sunny hikes. More comfortable than BB hat/cap.

I have been using this hat for 2 summers now. In Texas and New Mexico. I really like the fit with draw string. Works really well in the hot sun because my head stays cool and breaths. This hat will not dry fast. I found out when I got rained on when I was backpacking. The brim is a little flimsy in the wind, as mentioned in OR reviews. I really like the hat overall just needs some fine tuning!

Great Hat

Fits me perfect in medium size.I like that you can remove the chinstrap since you'll only need it on the windiest days. Brim is a little wide for visibility for some activities, but that provides better protection so I can live with it

I've been using this hat now for 3 years. Its been with me all over the U.S. doing research from the hot arid high desert region to New England to the Gulf coast. It is excellent sun protection. I always forget to put sunblock on my ears so this hat saves me quite a bit. It is very good about wicking sweat away from your forehead preventing it from dripping down into your eyes or onto the lenses of your sunglasses. Then I leave my chin strap attached and put it up over the top/back of the hat for those days the wind is super strong or riding in a windy car or boat. That way I can pull it down under my chin. It can get hot in humid weather though and it stays wet if you're in the rain. It's definitely not quick dry material.

Perfect for the high desert

I've had this hat since 2008, when I took a job in the desert Southwest. It is very comfortable and breathable, and blocks the sun very well. I love dunking it in water in the hot afternoon. I would like to point out that the tag line for this product describes it as "Cotton sun protection for hot, dry climates." Key word is "dry" - the material may be a bit thick for the Midwestern or Southeastern USA heat. It is, however, perfect for the desert Southwest.

Good Hat ( but not for the south east)

3

I live the south east and the humidity is harsh. This hat is comfortable and great in the spring time but summer humidity with it on is unbearable. I also own the sombriolet, it has it's down sides too (brim has a mind of its own, flimsy). The brims on all there hat except the Seattle cannot be adjusted and are flimsy in the wind. No one that designs outdoor clothes(HATS) must have never been to the south east or tropic jungle. Yes, I have i have traveled to many uncomfortable climates (ARMY). Of all choices out there OR has the best but still need improvment.
