Keep your noggin protected when your on the water or portaging to the next put in. UPF 50 fabric protects you from intense sun, while strategically placed vents and wicking fabric in the crown keep you cool and dry. Piping along the brim edge offers greater wind resistance when a summer storm unexpectedly brews.

Whether you're logging hours on the trail, down the river, or in the garden--the Sombriolet hat from Outdoor Research will keep your head and face protected from the sun and heat. The lightweight hat utilizes SolarShield construction with nylon/polyester blended fabric to provide UPF 50+ sun protection.

Ready for any adventure, the hat is equipped with piping along the brim edge for wind resistance on land or sea, as well as a foam-stiffened brim, so that the hat won't disappear if you drop it in the water. A TransAction headband maintains a secure fit while also wicking away moisture, and external drawcord adjustment and a removable chin cord with cordlock ensure that the hat stays in place.

I've been working as a marine and terrestrial "field biologist," mostly outdoors in South Florida, since 1979. Exposure to this much sun is an issue, and the sooner you recognize and take measures to deal with that, the longer you'll be able to enjoy working and playing outdoors. A hat like this may seem pretty expensive to the young or inexperienced, but after the dermatologists start cutting bits and pieces off of you, you may realize a hat like this is very inexpensive health insurance. Below are some observations about the Sombriolet and competing "sun hats," based on experience in hot and humid coastal South Florida.

Ball caps are very popular, but they don't shade the back of your neck or sides of your face, and can actually pull hair back that might otherwise cover and protect your ears. There are a host of broad-brimmed solutions, but they each have their drawbacks.

Straw hats, "lifeguard" hats, and Panama hats are woven from a variety of "unprocessed" plant materials (various grass stems, palms fronds and similar plant leaves). Made from renewable resources, light-colored, lightweight, and naturally well-ventilated, straw hats are terrific... while they last. But, there's the rub: longevity. Don't get me wrong, straw hats protect the wearer from summer sun and heat just fine. But, if I may paraphrase the great Yogi Berra's malaprop ("It ain't the heat, it's the humility"); I'd say, with straw hats, "it ain't the heat, it's the humidity." Exposed to sweat or rain, straw hats quickly lose their shape. Add some abrasion from branches passed during a hike, and the hat most exposed edges get ragged looking in a hurry.

I was looking for good shade, durability, and a quick-drying property. I got all those and more. Someone has done a lot of good design thinking about what is needed in a hat when you're out on the water. The wide brim provides lots of shade, the material is quick-drying and crush-resistant. The mesh and cut of the cap part of the hat provide ventilation. The neck strap has a sensible clasp and keeps the hat on in a very stiff breeze or traveling fast over the water on a jet ski. I felt that I was paying a bit too much sight unseen, but I got more than I expected and will seek out this brand again when I need a new hat. I will use it on the water and for hiking because of its light weight, as well as on the beach.

I live in the Midwest and I hate summer. There, I said it! I just can't take the heat. I get headaches from the sun beating down on my head and I'm ruined for the rest of the day. But, I am a geocacher. I enjoy using billion-dollar satellite technology to hunt for tupperware hidden in the woods. That requires a bit of hiking. This hat is perfect for protecting my brain from baking in the sun, and shades my face neck and ears from burning. It is lightweight but very sturdily constructed of high-quality materials. I like the adjustable chin strap so I can cinch the hat down to a snug fit on breezy days or toss it off to hang down my back when I'm ducking under low branches on a hunt. The vents built into the crown allow for circulation so my scalp doesn't get TOO sweaty. The fabric of the outer shell is nylon and doesn't breathe well but does a great job of blocking the suns rays. So the vents help but make no mistake- your scalp will still perspire on a hot day. Overall, this hat is ideal for shading your face, neck, ears, scalp and shoulders from burning in the sun. The brim is not floppy & limp but has just the right amount of rigidity so that it looks casual without being sloppy or stiff. The underside of the brim is medium gray slightly fuzzy fabric so I don't get a glare or reflection in my eyes. That was a great design bonus! Also, there is a elastic cord with a toggle in the back so you can fine-tune the fit. The toggle is on the outside, at the back of the rim under a protective flap so it doesn't look dorky or get snagged on branches. I got the khaki tan color and it perfectly matches my Merrell hikers. A fashion plus!
I wish the ventilation was more like air-conditioning because, in case I didn't mention it, I hate the summer heat and I hate to perspire, but otherwise this hat is perfect.

This is very good sun hat. It is vented to help keep you cool and does a great job of keeping the sun off you face and neck. I'm not supposed to risk sunburn and I really dislike sunscreen, especially on the face and neck. I'd rather put up with the goofy look than the greasy skin or staying inside. (That lawn ain't gonna mow itself sonny). I've had it for two years without issue.

The brim is pretty flexible and will flop around in the wind. If you don't wear the chinstrap when it's windy out, expect to chase the hat unless you have quick hands. The brim does give you good coverage though.

It is made in China, so if that's an issue you'll want to look elsewhere. Other than that, if you have a need for a good sunhat, this is a good choice.

I bought this hat before a trip to Tasmania, where I was going to be doing a fair amount of hiking and other outdoor activities - and I'm glad I did! It's comfortable and doesn't overheat your head (important, during the Aussie summer) and it's easy to tuck the strap behind your ears to keep it out of the way of your face. It protected my face, neck and most of my shoulders from the weather, whether it was hot and sunny or pouring rain. I got caught in a downpour while hiking and the rain just rolled right off, keeping my vision clear. (As an added bonus, the hat was dry within an hour of when I got in out of the storm, despite being closed in a damp car.) If the wind really picks up, it does have a tendency to want to fly off, but that's going to be the case with any lightweight hat - and that's what the strap is for.
