Outdoor Research Radar Pocket Cap Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

This hat is just as good as most of the reviews say, if not better. Bought it for a vacation in Costa Rica and wore it every day hiking, beaching, etc. Just folded it up and pocketed it at night. I'm picky about these things from a style perspective, and this hat looks good.
The folding brim is awesome and looks good even after a couple weeks of solid wear and tear, including being stuffed into the pocket of my board shorts on a regular basis. The size chart is accurate and it is a medium depth hat - not as deep as a traditional new era fitted cap, but not too shallow either. I am ordering another color and will probably start wearing them around the city as well.

My only problem is that all the colors aren't pictured here, so it is hard to pick the right size color combination without alot of hassle. I have a relatively small head and the medium is a little loose, but comfortable. The small is snug. I don't need it snug, so I'm going for the medium. The bill of the hat has a scored seam that allows for folding the hat so it can be put into your back pocket. It does look a tad odd, but isn't a deal breaker for me. Backcountry, could you show the other colors for those of us who are picky about colors?

A bit pricey but a very good product

I was scrambling at the REI store for a cap in the last minute. Was going to hike the Angels Landing at Zion. I have always had issue with caps getting too heavy with my sweat. This cap was surprising great. I never felt it to be heavy at all and it's foldable and fits well in your pocket. The cap is super breathable and dries quickly. I thought it was a bit pricey when I saw the tag but I got a 20% off as a REI member, so it was worth at the price I got it for.

I had one, it got stolen. First thing I did when I realized it was gone.... got online and ordered a new one. Even if I had found the other one, having two would be fine. I never go anywhere without this hat on or in my bag. I love the short brim, the folding feature on it is also nice for when the hat is in my back pocket or in my pack.

awesome hat

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 liked the hat and had read the reviews before ordering, but still ordered an XL; it was too big, so i exchanged easily and with the help of the BackCountry staff. It is a pleasure to deal with a company that appreciates and demonstrates good customer service; if I need anything in the future, i wlll definitely check with BackCountry

Best Hiking Hat I've Ever Owned

I took this hat out for a 2,750 mile hike down the Continental Divide Trail and absolutely feel in love with it. I wore it almost all day every day. I even when I wore it when it rained because it has a bigger bill than my rain coat and that really helped to keep the rain off my face.
Triple Crowner at REI on 04/04/2012

Packs great into a suitcase or backpack and you don't have to worry about bending the bill becuase it folds in half. Great fit and great for sun / rain. Even though it is not water proof it stills keeps your head dry in light rain. Not the most fashionable hat but its great for a hiking and backpacking.

Ian Pickard at Backcountry.com on 04/22/2011

I love how yo can pack this hat away in your pack and still wear it with style when you take it out of the pack...I sometimes carry this hat on mountain bike rides when I know I am going to stop for food after...(good way to cover my helmet hair when I take my helmet off)

Mike Traslin at Backcountry.com on 04/15/2011

Perfect hat

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.

Negative Reviews:

Nice hat, but size is questionable

Normally I'm a medium, have my share of hats which fits, but this hat fits large. Lack of being able to adjust simply not acceptable.
