GREAT PRODUCT. HAVE OWNED PREVIOUS HATS.

Cool comfort in a boonie style hat

5

Haven't worn a boonie style hat for real in the military in tropical and desert environments I can say it's my favorite uniform hat. However the issue hats do not breathe very well. Outdoor Research remedies this problem by installing a mesh panel around the circumference of the crown. This lightweight hat blocks the Sun while allowing your cranium to ventilate. Currently a steal in camo at 70% off. Not suitable for uniform wear but fine for all other off-duty adventures.

Solid product

Very breathable, nice brim, though the material feels like it will soak up water (it is cotton after all). I purchased it as a hot weather sun hat and it is perfect for what I wanted.

I love this gat dang hat!

Loving this hat! Exceeded my expectations in appearance and comfort. [IMPORTANT: Mushroom color is browner than shown in the picture. This worked for me but may not work for everyone. I saw a hint of that when I looked up the hat on another site to get multiple perspectives.] This is a great hat for desert life. This summer is going to be a scorcher and I know that I'll be ready: protected from glaring sun but with decent air circulation in the crown. On a side note, I look pretty darn good in this hat. :)

Hefty hat

A fairly substantial sun hat that doesn't feel too flimsy. That said I found the brim a bit floppy. I returned it because I needed something different, but I could see it holding up well over long-term use.

Great, breathable & functional hat

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
