Rain or shine.

  • TransAction headband wicks sweat and prevents it from dripping in your eyes
  • Rear drawcord adjustment and removable chin cord keep the hat firmly in place during gusty weather

A great gift for my dad!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

I bought this hat as a birthday gift for my dad. He loves the way it fits, and that it comes with the rain cover for rainy Northeastern summer days. The size chart was perfect for measuring the correct size. He said the brim was bigger than expected, but likes that it will cover his nose from the sun. I would suggest this hat for any dad's trying to stay cool in the summer heat!

Thanks for the review, Emily!

Sweet hat

    Really like the fit of this hat. Brim is not too big or too small, very functional.


      good hat with removable rain cover. the back is a bit longer which is a bit annoying when looking up while belaying... other than that pretty cool. Also you can adjust the size a bit and that's nice.
