Keeps the sun away

    Great hat for kayaking and keeping the sun out of your face. The only downside is it's really big And the doesn't work well with the wind

    Hi there - thank you for your review. It's so hard when you have a trade off like that: you can get maximum sun protection with this hat versus others in our line, but the trade off is that it's big and catches the wind... good think it has a solid chin strap!

    Works great for kayaking

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got a ton of jokes from my friends on how wide the brim was on this thing, but I took it on a river trip and at the end I was the only one without sunburn on my face or back of the neck, so jokes on them! It also sheds water really well and doesn't stay wet, and is super lightweight and foldable so it fits in a small dry bag with ease.

    Great review, Luke! Yep - joke's on them!! as well as a sunburn!

    great protection from the sun

      bought this hat to kayak in and it really does its job by protecting from face the sun

      Great Moab hat!!!!

      • Fit: True to size

      I got this for sun protection when I take trips down to the desert. This is very lightweight and also very breathable. Not only does it shade your face and neck but it has sun protection built into the material which is super helpful. I love how this has chin cord that you can take off. I took if off the first day I got this and have not yet had to put it back on. If there is a windy day in my future then I am sure it would come in handy. It also is not very loud and comes in some colors that appeal to me. Hit me up if you have any questions on this hat.

      How much does it weigh?
      Thanks, Dawn

      Hey Dawn, this hat weighs about 3 oz.

      Serious coverage for extreme sun!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      When im out on the river all day long floating and fishing, it is easy to forget about the suns powerful rays. The huge brim on the Aquifer Sombrero keeps the sun off my skin and out of my eyes. I enjoy dunking it in the river on really hot days and let the water evaporate for an extremely nice cooling sensation!

      Serious coverage for extreme sun!

      Neil, thank you for the great review and even BETTER picture! Love it!

      Enjoy -
