This is a great hat, I use it for hiking, mountaineering and just running around town. Leave it to Outdoor Research to think of it all. I usually don't use a fitted or nonadjustable hat when I am hiking or in the mountains, because I like the option of quickly just buckling the sternum strap through the adjustable portion of the hat when the wind picks up. OR put a little loop inside the hat for just this purpose I am guessing. It is comfortable and the material is light. The light material breaths well. I order a size "L" and it fits me perfectly and I normally wear a size 7 1/4 in fitted hats.
Absolutely love this hat. On my second one, not because of a durability issue the last one was just claimed by the river. Had to repurchase right away because none of my other hats are as useful as the radar. Sheds water very well in light to medium rain. Hat is very soft and comfortable, even after multiple days of sweating in it and does an odor. Favorite part is still the foldable bill. I ride a motorcycle and its wonderful to just throw it in a pocket and have a hat with me when I take the helmet off. Feels correct to sizing. Easiest hat to keep with you any time you need to wear other head gear.
Great all-around hat! I don't wear hats often, but this is my go-to. It can go from running to errands to traveling and when you're done you can just throw it in your bag or tuck it into your pocket. It breathes nicely and never feels like my head is getting too hot. I agree with the comment about the sweat band. I have the black hat and you can definitely see the sweat line. But, that is something that could probably be fixed by throwing the hat in the gentle cycle. Nice fabric, great quality, great customer service...I would definitely recommend this hat!
"Beautiful Hat, as others have mentioned be careful of the size."
The split brim is a beautiful thing, making it uber easy to stuff in a pocket and bust out when no one expects it. The sweat band is quite handy as is the little hanger loop in back. The only issue I had was the size issue - I have a huge head, and interestingly enough the large was a trifle too big. Ahh well, Que sera, sera.
Alot of reviews call for sizing up or down. I got the slate, size large, and it fits true to size. Sounds like the orange runs big, otherwise get what size you need. Its a great hat, very comfortable, folds small. Enjoy!
I've had this thing for over a year now and it just wont quit. Awesome cover! The only problem i have ever had with this hat is the ugly sweat stain through the head band area but I suspect that is more of a problem of physiology than with this awesome piece of gear.
