Look, a water buffalo wearing a hat!

If you don't want to go through life as "Leather Face," turn to the Marmot Precip Safari Hat. It'll keep the sun off of your face and the rain off of your head, thanks to its wide brim and water-repellent NanoPro membrane. If you end up flipping your boat while rafting, don't panic���this sweet hat floats in water and won't sink into the realm Davy Jones. A detachable and adjustable chin strap lets you secure the Safari on blustery days, and a magnetic side closure allows you to flip the brim up or down.

Eh. Ok.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great idea if you're backpacking Iceland or Ireland. I found the water barrier causes the hat to be a little warm and sweaty in normal climates with lot's of sun. I the precip liner is really not needed. Great in the rain (which I guess is the reason for which it was made) but for all around use, not recommended.

everything but the heat

I wear a 6 3/4 to 7 size hat ie MLB 59fifty caps. I bought this in a S/M size and it fit well. The material really absorbs alot of heat especially when the sun is out and you’re working. I do not think this hat is meant for wearing out by the pool. I wear this on the soccer or football field when it’s drizzling. I have yet to go to a moist jungle with the boonie. The chin strap functions well and is removal. The brim has magnets to attach to the head part.

Great Safari hat

    Very nice and good quality Marmot hat. Adjustable strap on the back is very helpful in windy situations.

    Unanswered Question

    If anyone is curious, the brim size on this hat will be 3 inches for all sizes.

    It's waterproof

    Everything was soaked except my head, thanks to this hat.

    It's waterproof

    Rain Hat yes

      Hot in the sun hat? .....questionable.

      This provides the right amount of Solar protection. It's light. It is adjustable for different sized heads. Its breathable.


      The comfortable inner lining soaks up ALL the sweat then stays wet....

      Suggestion: Removable liner in order to squeeze out the sweat before putting it back on.

      Temporary solution: Dont get the inner forehead lining wet.

      Rain Hat yes

      Ultimate Cover!

      I purchased this for my husband and he loves it! Almost 100 miles of hiking this summer and weathered a few storms in the process. It kept him cool in the hot and dry in the wet. A little pricey but well worth the cost! He is very pleased with the performance.
