The Outdoor Research Sombriolet Sun Hat is a water resistant, highly breathable and packable wide brimmed hat with UPF50+ for extra sun protection.
Outdoor Research says: Keep your noggin protected when you're on the water. UPF 50+ fabric protects you from intense sun, while strategically placed vents and wicking fabric in the crown keep you cool and dry.
This is a classic Outdoor Research design and one of their best sellers too. It features a supremely practical wide brim that protects your head, face and neck from the sun while also keeping you dry during light showers. The chin strap is removable and there's a drawcord on the outside for some adjustment.
The high wicking mesh-lined crown and strategically placed vents make it suitable for summer hikes and the piping along the brim offers wind resistance when the breeze picks up. The only small drawback is that the mesh on the inside of the hat feels quite stiff, so it works well to stay on your head but it might irritate people with thinning hair.
