Love this Hat!
This is a great hat. I owned it in khaki, but lost it so I had to get two more (dark green and blue). I'm balding on the top, so this is a nice cover for the top of the head without being as bulky as a standard hat. It's easily packable, so there's no problem taking it off and sticking it in a back pocket when you go inside... maybe that's how I lost the khaki one?
Just what I was looking for!
I use this for general outdoors activities including hiking and camping. One size fits all styles never seem to fit me, and the individual sizing (L) fits me almost perfectly. It is very light and comfortable. The folding brim is nice for travel/stuffing in a pack. Some people have said they think the brim is too short, but it suits my needs. The one improvement I might suggest would be a small degree of adjustment.
Just like in MASH
I needed a hat that doesn't slide around on my head during strenuous moments in the outback, one that helps control heat, folds down small, and that has a bill that minimally interferes with range of vision--this hat gets you there and fits like a glove! My big head is about 22.5" and the "X-large" was slightly too big. Like the real Radar, it's "scientific" more than stylish but great gear! :)
Best I could ever hope for after years of wearing baseball type hats. I have a huge head, long hair and wear glasses, and the XL hat stays on very well. A little warm and could benefit from vents on the next iteration. Excellent thin material, washable, and stylin'. Keeps my head dry during light rain and keeps the sun out of my eyes.
I hate grimy sweat bands so the fact that this is washable is huge. It also has the bill that folds in the middle, which I can't live without these days; it fits perfectly in my back pocket when I need to take it off. Make sure you get the right size; it's not adjustable.
I have worn this hat on trail runs, humid 90 degree+ GMS hikes, as well as in downpours with just the bill poking out under my rain hood. It seems as cool as my vented hats (cooler than my sunrunner), is very light and comfortable, dries quickly enough and almost makes even me look cool.
awesome, versatile hat!
I LOVE this hat. I've always loved the fit and look of similar hats out there that are made only for fashion, but they just don't hold up to sweat, sun, and being stuffed into a pack. This cap blends style and function and goes easily from work to crag to trail.
Different style than ball caps - which I like about it. Comes in distinct sizes, which fits me better than one size fits most. Originally ordered an XL, and easily exchanged it for a L size. Maybe runs on the large size. Nice light weight hat with good sun protection.
Light, packable hat
This hat really does fit in a pocket,is very light and comfortable. I don't mind the shorter brim (I just wear it pulled lower). I do wish there was a small amount of adjustment, although the size seems to be right on.
Another great OR hat
I own several hats made by Outdoor Research and this is one of my favorites.
