    Helios Sun Hat

    That small, exposed piece of scalp on the back of your head serves as a very painful reminder that you're going bald after a long day out in the sun—save yourself the burn and unwanted reality check with the Outdoor Research Helios Sun Hat. Made with Outdoor Research's SolarShield material, the Helios offers UPF 50 sun protection and is designed with a wide brim to effectively shield your face from the sun's rays. The elastic drawcord keeps the hat glued to your melon when you're floating down a windy river, and the adjustable chin strap serves as a fail safe, just in case you start to feel the Helios peel back from your head under pressure from heavy-handed winds.

    • A wide-brimmed hat for hiking, camping, and rafting trips
    • SolarShield fabric provides protection from UV rays
    • Adjustable elastic ensures a secure and comfortable fit
    • Chin strap can be cinched down so hat doesn't blow away

    Upon further review

    • Size Bought: large

    The hat is better than I hoped. Top notch. went jet skiing and didnt even need the strap. Love it.
    That said just buy it elsewhere at any cost. do not subject yourself to the back country stench...its like the worst Back Country privy you ever stumbled upon....if you've ever been to San Jacinto's back country pot....you'll never forget it. Or like going to Oakland or San fransisco....for anything...just a filthy experience you want to forget as soon as possible.
    for you first time parents out there...its like that time you left the babies dirty diaper in the car at the trailhead for the weekend trip...just really really putrid. I wanna shower now after writing about "them". not sure why they sent me another email asking for my review...her it is. Peace to all. (no not you Back Country dung beetles)

    The product is fine or it will be

      whenever I receive my hat I'm sure it will be a great product....Backcountry sucks!! just buy it somewhere else. Or you could learn to sew, save up and buy a sewing machine, make your own fabric, and even then, you will have your hat quicker than you will get it from backcountry. Im stuck with the hat because I don't even want to deal with them again. Cheers

      A working hat

        This is the choice hat of my friend as he leads some outdoor projects in Kenya this spring! Bought it as a gift for him, for it's packability, great look and promising design to fight off harmful UV rays.

        Perfectly Packable

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I purchased this hat to hike in back in the spring and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It is lightweight, packs small, and provides good coverage. It's cool enough that I have it in my "dad pack" and take it to kids' soccer games to avoid cancering up the old face.

        Protect the dome.

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I have to be careful with sun exposure. I chose this hat because of the color and other reviews. Know what your size is. I ordered a large, and I am probably between a large and medium. I am hoping it will shrink a tad after some use. While I think it is true to size, my hat is a little bit big. I love the color, and the design. I will be testing it out in a lower latitude very soon. The quality is good, but it does not quite have the sturdiness of another brand I have used. It is more comfortable, however.

        Great Product

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Fits and looks great!

        Solid Sun Blocker

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I purchased this hat for mid-summer Ultimate Frisbee tournaments and it has exceeded my expectations. The hat is lightweight, sun-blocking, and easy to store. While it does absorb sweat, the material dries quickly and I didn’t notice any lingering water marks. This is a solid hat and a bargain for the price.

        Thanks Andrew. Easy to see why this is our top seller! Happy Trails!

        Awesome Sun Hat

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have used this hat a lot from exploring around in Costa Rica, to hikes in the Uinta mountains. The cinch strap in the back helps keep it on your head and the chin strap helps in higher winds. This hat is very light weight and breaths really well on those hotter days. Check it out if you are in the market for a new hat.

        Great Hat!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Perfect replacement for my > 10 year old hat. Sun coverage is excellent and fits comfortably.

        Excellent for southern Utah hiking

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This hat was great for UV protection during a 4-day hiking/scrambling trip in southern Utah. It kept its shape well, is lightweight and breathes well —especially considering how much I was sweating. (It's also my go-to hat for the pool and beach.)

        Classic that Breathes

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have always been a fan of the wide-brim hats and this one has to be one of my favorites. The material it is made of is durable but also supply and breathes exceptionally well. The fit is snug and even without tightening the cinch on the back it stays on my head. Wear this on jaunts in nature, but also as an every-day hat.

        Thanks Patrick! Sorry for the late reply!

        Basic but just what I needed

          I may have overlooked need for some kind of ventilation in the head area but I really like the hat and it held up nicely on a rafting trip

          Thanks Angie - we have a vented hat that is similar called the Sol Hat. Both are great!
