Great for a Sunday Afternoon Sail

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

I bought this hat for my mom, but I was home visiting her last weekend and we went for a sail on an extremely blustery Lake Ontario. I put on her hat (which was a bit small for me)but it worked great. The lanyard allowed me to easily secure it in the gale, and the brim is very versatile.
My one complaint would be that since it's a pretty supple brim, it can get flopped up in a stiff wind, which then allows the sun to hit your face.

Where is the hat made thank you?

Feelin' Like Indiana Jones

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is my go-to hat for anytime I set out on an adventure, and it is perfect for a number of climates. The back-adjustable strap makes it easy to tighten and loosen how close it sits to your head, and the back flap velcros up when you do not need it. My favorite feature of this hat is that it breathes extremely well; I wear this in the desert and my head never overheats despite the harsh sun. It is both light and durable, able to fold down and fit in a pack or pocket. A staple hat for anyone who goes adventureing.

I have looked at this hat a lot. I was able to get it on sale, which made me very happy. It's a great hat, good protection over the face as well as for the neck. I'll get lots of use from it.

I LOVE this hat!

If you need shade, comfort and cool functionality all in one, you should just buy this hat. Others will be jealous. Other others will just be sunburned. But you won't. You'll be comfy and cool. A few of my favorite features include the mesh side panels, rear size adjustment and the velcro for folding up the back flap. I went L/XL and it fit my head great. In helmets I am normally an XL.

If there is one thing that you can control when you are out adventuring, it's the hat on your head. This hat is my best friend in the desert. I would recommend it to anybody not looking to turn into a crispy sunburn.

Best Hiking Hat

  • Fit: True to size

Light-Weight, Great Coverage/Protection, floats in water, breathable material.



It looks silly, but would you rather look silly for one day on the trail or have sunburn on your face peeling skin for 3 week?

This hat gives you great sun protection even the back of the neck which is very great not alot of hats over protection for the neck. The hat is so light-weight you won't even notice it on your head. Works great in hot weather because of the breathablity material its made from and the sweat moisture head band keeping the sweats out of your eye.



Definitely try in store before you buy online.

Better to get a perfect fit than wrong size online.

How does this hat handle getting soaked?...

How does this hat handle getting soaked? I can see how the back would plaster onto your neck, but how about the brim?

Best Answer

The fabric is DWR coated so it is water repellent. It works pretty well in the rain, both front brim and back neck cape. However there are ventilation panels and it is not waterproof so it is clearly not a rain hat.

All the Sun protection you would ever need.

I used this on a recent trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons. This hat kept the sun out of my eyes and off the side of my face. The end of my nose did get burned surprisingly. In the wind make sure you have the strap in place as it will blow off your head.

I found the hat light and comfortable and will use it often when I'm outside around the house too.

    LOVE!

    I have been looking for a wide brimmed hat to work in. This one shades my entire face all day. I love the soft back since it doesn't get caught on my pack pack. Cool, breathable, everything about this hat is perfection. Might have to buy a couple more!

    What size head does the small hat fit? I...

    What size head does the small hat fit? I have a very small head, 20 3/4 - 21 inches. Thank you

    Small fits 20"-21". It should be perfect for you. A medium would be too loose and blow off with every gust.

    Best sunhat EVER

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Others have said it, I will say it again: this is the best sunhat I have ever come across! It is light, packable, easily washable, great coverage of your face and neck, mesh on the sides so that your head can breathe, adjustable strap in the back, and even has built in UV protection. It is so perfect for hiking and backpacking, dries quickly, comfortable, perfect! There is literally no other hat like it. In terms of durability, I have owned my hat for over 5 years now and it looks brand-new. I've bought one for my boyfriend, friends, and family: they make great gifts as well. You will probably lose it before it wears out (has happened to me). The only bad thing to think of: they are not that stylish. I think my head looks like a giant mushroom when I wear it lol. :)

    The best sun hat I've ever had

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It is very light, covers completely, string under the chin keeps it on in the wind, it has vents, it is packable, although you have to be careful not to bend it in half, because foam inside will be scrunched and hat will have a strong crease in the middle. Make sure visor part is flat, when you fold it.

    Sizes are very generous.

    Lots of Shade and Breathable

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this for my mom. She said she said the sun protection offered was fantastic. It is very light, and extremely breathable. The cinch in the back also makes the head size adjustable, which is a nice addition. The back can be velcro-ed up to the main hat too!
