The Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero Hat is a waterproof hat for hiking and enjoying soaking wet weather. If you're from the Pacific Northwest, then you know the drill: always bring along your rain gear. The wide-brimmed style combined with GORE-TEX 3L fabric makes it a winner for head coverage when the deluge falls from the skies. Dry hair, neck and even your face. The foam within the brim allows it to float if it falls off your head into a body of water, but you can avoid that mess by securing the chin strap in the event of wind.
Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Still good, but a little disappointingI bought my first Seattle Sombereo ~15 years ago, and functionally, it's still going strong. However, after prolonged salt water use and a couple of run-ins with red clay, it's a little stained, so I decided it was time for a new one. When the new one arrived, I was disappointed to see there was no size adjustment band inside like my old one had and that the hat was slightly taller (now it pushes my ears down). I plan to keep the hat as it's still much better than the alternatives, but I wish OR would revert to the older style/features.

another sad downgrade to a formerly great OR productI lost my much loved old seattle sombrero on my last work trip to Alaska; ordered a replacement and am very dismayed that the new one does not have the slick velcro cinch band, even though the instruction card that came with it still tells you how to adjust that. I've always loved the comfort and versatility of this hat, and the precise fit was a big part of that - I could put it on in the morning and spend the day working in windy rain, and it wouldn't budge. Sure it's got a chin strap - but since the hat is very large even on my big melon, I worry it will be shifting around a lot. Appears they removed the fitting band but left it very large as if it would still have one - many of their hats barely fit me at all but this is sloppy, so folks with normal-size noggins might want to go down a size now. It's a shame when formerly well-thought-out OR gear loses some of its most distinguishing and useful features, but it seems to be a trend.

price great, color appealing but there's a "however"I use this type of hat in the Northwest on a regular basis except when it's really hot and no chance of rain. I was used to my other hat like this that has a Velcro adjustment in the back for additional sizing. I ordered a medium like before HOWEVER the fit is sloppy without this adjustment piece. I end up tightening the strap under my chin, so it doesn't shift or blow off my head. I'd recommend it however with the caveat of the fit issues....

Sailing With Josh from
No Longer Has Velcro Adjustment For Personal FitI've had one for ten years and it is awesome. Bought a new one recently, same size, only to discover it no longer has the velcro fit adjustment. This was disappointing. I see others feel similarly. This was a very important feature that greatly improved the fit, warmth, and security of the hat. It also allowed me to adjust it if I wanted to wear a wool hat to supplement underneath. The key to great performance is a great fit. Please bring it back.

No size adjustment inside?As my fifth OR Seattle Sombrero it was all I expected...except for the lack of Velcro adjustment for size. I would have returned it but I tossed the packing materials thinking it would be like the others. Well made and otherwise a fantastic hat, wish I could return for a smaller size

Great hat, but hard to get a good fitI bought this to replace one I loved and lost. The design has changed. There is no more size adjuster. For me, the medium is too tight and the large is too loose. I returned it.

Would buy it again if actually had brim Hook/Loop AdjustmentThis a great hat so I decided to buy another one. On the description it's written that the hat comes with Brim Hook/Loop Adjustment but that's not true. That should be updated so that someone else doesn't make the same mistake. If you guys actually have one with Brim Hook/Loop Adjustment let me know so I can order it.

Size runs largeAll of my hats are size extra large. This hat runs to large for my head and there is no means of correcting it.
