Customer Reviews

Replacing 30 yr o hat. Durable, waterproofLove the colors. My head slightly between medium and large. Bought both , kept medium.Actually, this was a Christmas gift from a friend and he bought 2 lol. I would have purchased it myself if he hadn't.Price: when purchased this hat was $44. Jan 2019 the price is only $29, but you pay $8 shipping. Mine shipped for free. Locally they charge $60 and only have 2 colors - Grayish green or red and black. I LOVE the many color choices I saw on Amazon!This hat is replacing the Outdoor Research sombrero styled rain hat I have worn since the mid1980s. Thirty years and it is still rain proof. I wore it backpackpacking, kayaking, whale watching on windy Resurrection Bay, camping, stuffed it in backpacks, rolled it in suitcases, carelessly shoved it onto crowded shelves, and ...put it in dryer . DO NOT PUT IT IN DRYER. Duh. That is what caused the rim to be so mis-shapened. Old is black and teal which I wanted again, but I like these new colors of blue and blue-green even more.I like the old version piece that allows you to tighten string so wind doesn't take your hat. The new one is smaller and harder to grab ahold of. I also have not figured out how to lock it in place. I live on the coast and it is very windy.I am expecting this to be the last rain hat I ever buy since the first lasted so long. I will be more careful with this one's brim so it retains shape. Old hat I rolled, wadded up, folded, etc 5Initially I ordered a large because I have a large summer OR hat that fits great. The large Seattle Sombrero was comically largeIt took 3 tries to get the right size: Initially I ordered a large because I have a large summer OR hat that fits great. The large Seattle Sombrero was comically large, so I broke down and measured my head and used their sizing chart and ordered a small, which almost fit. Wasn't hard to figure out from there that I needed a medium.The sweatband is better on the Seattle Sombrero than the summer version I have, but I'm not overly fond of the velcro adjustment in the back. My summer hat has an elastic cord and toggle to be able to quickly adjust the fit depending on need. I may add something like this to the Seattle Sombrero. I doubt I will ever use the velcro to hold the sides up unless I go to a costume party as a cowboy.It has performed well in the winter rain and wet snow. The lining has been comfortable in the cold weather, but by mid-spring this will probably be too warm and I'll go back to my summer hat. 4Warm after a night walking in 37 degree, humid coldI am an ultra-marathon runner. I do several 24 hour endurance races each year, including one this past weekend. Weather forecasters said it was going to be cold AND Rainy all night during our race this weekend. I decided to buy this rain hat to help me endure endless hours walking non-stop on the race track in the bad weather.As it turned out, the rain passed through earlier than expected, and it was only drizzling by the race start time. The hat did keep my head and neck dry from the light drizzle, but that wasn't really a good test for a $50+ dollar rain hat, IMHO. Guess I will have to wait for another day to test the ability of this hat to keep my head dry in a heavy rain.But to my surprise, the hat kept my head and neck very warm as I walked hour after hour in the cold, humid night. Parts of the night were cold and windy, and since I have a very small sized head, I usually have a lot of trouble keeping a hat situated properly on my head in windy conditions. I usually have to put a knit hat under any other sun or rain hat I might wear, to get the hat to fit right and stay in place. But I bought the small sized hat, and this hat fit my head perfectly without a knit cap underneath, even when the wind whipped up.The race began at 3 pm in the afternoon. I wore that hat all afternoon, all evening and night, and we'll into the next day (until about noontime) without taking it off. It was so lightweight and comfortable that I didn't even bother to take it off when I took a half hour off to go enjoy a spaghetti dinner they had for the race participants. Honestly, as small as my head is, I don't think I have ever worn a hat as comfortable and lightweight as this hat. Even after wearing it for 21 hours non-stop, the hat still felt as light and comfortable on my head as the first moment I put it on.I bought the hat for rain protection, but as it turned out, I needed protection from cold more than rain protection. It got down to 37 degrees before morning. And the was a very humid cold. Not a dry weather type of cold.To see the hat - light and thin as it is - you would never think it could protect a head after many hours of walking in the cold night. But it did. By 5 a.m. - despite thick gloves - my fingers were so cold I couldn't move them enough to unwrap a snack I needed to eat to fuel my body with. My fingers were that cold.But my head was warm. Amazingly, my head was warm with just that light hat on. Guess It was the Gore-tex material the hat is made of. (Wish I'd worn my Gore-tex gloves out there that night, instead of the thick gloves I wore instead).It did well with the sun, too, when morning finally came. I planned on switching to my sun hat sometime after morning, but never felt need to do so. I am not sure how the hat will work in an extremely sunny, summer sun, as it was a bit cloudy the morning of our autumn race. And the rim on this hat is not quite as wide as my dedicated sun hat. But it worked very well in the more moderate sun we had this weekend.This hat is pricey. But when you do ultra-marathons and other extremely long foot races like I do, you need the best clothing for the job. This hat fit the bill for me during my 24 hour endurance race this past weekend.I 5Rainy Days Never Say Goodbye This is extremely expensive. What is it worth for you to stay completely dry? One of the best rain hats you can buy. I have survived atmospheric rivers, El Nino, La Nina, PineApple Express, Coconut Connection, and whatever else that they want to call a large amount of rain. Roads wash out. Reservoirs overfill and spill over. Rivers rise and flood multiple counties. Homes are 25 feet under water. The downpour literally washes the stench of human waste from the sidewalks in The Big City. This hat has kept my head dry.Keep in mind that although this is 100% effective; there are much lower cost options to keeping your head dry. Same way you can spend a fortune on Gore-Tex; or simply use a military poncho and stay just as dry. 5Loved it for my canoe tripEXCELLENT for what it is. My wife and I had a four day canoe trip and this was perfect for the both of us. I got one for each of us. It poured rain the second day and this kept us dry (including our rain jackets and pants). The other days it was very sunny and hot (under the sun for 6 hours minimum each day) and this kept me out of the sun. If the hat got hot, I just scooped up some water from the river and put it on the hat, it cooled it off and didn't soak my head (waterproof!)! 5Keeps off the rain, looks good, packs well.I do a lot of walking and this hat works very well in the rain. It also works pretty well in the sun.In really hot conditions, this hat is less than ideal. When it's over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, I prefer a hat from the Dorfman Pacific Company (DPC)--they have several functional models. Not only because it is less hot, but also for a slightly larger brim to keep more sun off. But this hat would still be better than no hat.In all other conditions, this hat is great. It keeps the rain off well, it keeps you a little warmer, but not too much. And it actually looks good (most functional hats don't). The strap works well. The hat does well in the wind.If it is cold, I like to combine it with a Wool Buff. This hat and a Buff take up vey little space, can be crumpled in your bag and look fine when you put them on. For so little weight, they also make a large range of temperatures more comfortable. If it's really cold, get two buffs or a balaclava :).If I could have only one hat, this would be it. 5I knew I needed appropriately awesome, yet obnoxious headwear for the rainAs I have been transitioning fully into Weird-Dadhood in the Pacific Northwest, I knew I needed appropriately awesome, yet obnoxious headwear for the rain. The Seattle Sombrero is perfect for winter rainy weather in WA state. I do not get too hot wearing it, despite the lightly insulated cap. It's absolutely waterproof as I can attest to after walking a good distance wearing this hat and a Carhartt Storm Defender coat.All in all, for hikers, camping enthusiasts, or weird PNW dads like me - this is a great choice.P.S. - My wife hates it, which endears me to it more. 5Ideal for travel, just as useful at homeHave you ever been caught off guard in an unexpected torrential rain storm without an umbrella and arrived at your destination looking like a drowned rat? I'm not good at remembering to carry an umbrella and sometimes, just don't want to carry one all day, just in case the weather changes. This hat is a very handy alternative.While this hat stays in my car nearly always for quick retrieval for those unexpected showers, I find it to be of greatest value while traveling. It is packable, I roll it up and add it to my camera bag (which doubles as a purse), during tours. When unrolled for use, it still looks great.The brim is wide and keeps the water away from your face and neck. I love the fabric, it really looks like a quality, well-made hat. The tie is essential for use in wind. While from my prior purchases I know the medium size would have fit, I don't like to have "hat hair" so chose the large size instead. After a brief rain storm, I can take the hat off, fluff the hair, and I'm good to go again. I bought the black so it looks good with the jackets and raincoat that I wear in all weather conditions.Last year my husband and I traveled to Russia on vacation. One cold, rainy day, when all of our fellow travelers were huddled under umbrellas, I unpacked this hat and enjoyed the freedom of being able to walk anywhere, hands free to snap some gorgeous pics, snug as a bug. No one mentioned it, but I suspect some of these other people will be buying this hat for their future trips! I suspect I'll also be buying another one soon in a brighter, fun color!If you find anything in this review to be helpful, please click "yes". Thanks! 5Keeps the water and sun off my neck and face. Would recommend them to all my friends.Keeps the water off my neck when fishing or walking the dogs. Would recommend to my friends. Gore Tex hat keeps my head dry. Strap keeps you hat on in high wind. Aussie style of hat with Velcro on each side to allow you to put both or one side up. 5I Finally Found Exactly What I've Been Looking ForI have been looking a long time for an attractive, waterproof, foldable rain hat. I went to the Outdoor Research Website to figure out my size, and according to my crown measurement (22") I bought the Small. It fits very snugly--not a problem but the next time, I'll try the medium.I love that it ha s a 'lariat' tie instead of two pieces to tie in a knot. When the rain stops and I want to hang it behind my head, I don't get choked. 5
