SPECIFICATIONS of the Outdoor Research SunShower Sombrero
The Outdoor Research Sunshower has been an extremely useful hat for my various outdoor activities. I wanted a hat that was both highly breathable for hiking under the California sun, and waterproof for those Rocky Mountain thuinderstorms. This hat handles both situations with aplomb, so long as you remember to pack the rain cover.'Coming from an army-surplus cotton hat, I was shocked by just how well this hat breathes, with my head never getting sweaty, even under the sweltering Southern California sun for hours and hours. The brim is nice and wide all around (especially in the back) to keep the sun off.The rain cover works wonderfully, and I was very glad to have it while hiking through a sudden downpour in Great Basin National Park.I really have no complaints about the hat at this time. It's light, breathable or waterproof (depending on needs), looks good, and packs easily. Highly recommended!
The had fits well and I forget it is on my head because it is so light. It is perfect for warm, sunny days because of the breathability. It comes with a rain cover which fits nicely over the hat. Although I have not used the rain cover, I'm sure it will come in handy some day.
I bought this to keep the sun off my face while gathering data in the field in Hawaii and it worked great. The vents keep your head cooler than a normal hat. BE AWARE this hat runs small th esmall barly fit me a t first but one it got worn in it worked great
