Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer! The sombriolet sun had in one of the best work wear purchases I have made. I work on and next to the water in SW Florida ALL DAY with no shade. Compaired to any other sun have worn the sumbriolet out performs by miles. The top of my head stays cool. The wind wont blow it off as easy with the adjustable elastic band. Speaking of hats blowing, it floats! I made the mistake of ordering a blue one so it was hard to keep an eye on it drifting away... next one will be a lighter color. I have owned this hat for a year and it has held up. Most year will not last long in my environment. I didn't expect it but I get a ton of compliments as Well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heat buster Great sun hat for the Arizona heat. I do a lot of work outside (we have a small ranch), and the Sombriolet is extremely comfortable and lightweight. Does a good job of deterring the gnats when I'm in the garden and out in the corrals. And when I'm out reading or doing some crafty thing out by the pool, this provides the perfect shade without having to perch under an umbrella. I originally order a medium, based on my western hats, but it was a tad too snug, so I returned and got the large. The hat has an adjustable band cord so I'm able to tighten or loosen as needed. Love it! A great alternative to my western straw hats. I'm glad I purchased it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big shade Got this shade hat after being tired of the brim on my prior hat brand always flapping in breezy weather and basically being useless on windy days. This brim is very wide and stiff enough to withstand light to moderate winds without loosing shape. Elastic cinch strap around crown of hat helps keep it place. Loads of shade with plenty covering back of neck. Breathability is great with air slits in top on sides, front, and back. Inside is mesh with loose nylon exterior covering over mesh interior. Sweat band on interior is a little loose, but it's not a big deal. Very good for outdoors use. I've hiked with it several times now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hike with OR I love OR Gear and I purchased as much OR gear for my 5 month thru-hike of the PCT. Heres how this gear held up! Sun Protection: Fantastic! A super wide brim, that is designed to cover most without being massive. Very breathable and should be the standard hat for hiking 700 miles through the California desert. Cons: Even though its wide, the hat still could use more neck protection. Columbia has a hat that has a built in neck protector that works brilliantly, just like the OR sun runner hat. If OR came up with a neck protection with a wide brim hat like this it would be the best outdoor hat on the market! I would still highly recommend this hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where has this hat been all my life. As I've gotten older I've stopped caring what other people think of what I wear. Now it's all about function. But luckily this hat not only functions fantastically, it also looks great on me. I put it on and I immediately notice a temperature difference. It is light weigh, plenty of vents for breathability. Also the brim is large. And casts a good size shadow. I've already washed it and it keeps shape after washing. If you have a top loader be mindful of the string it can get caught up. But that's the most minor of dings. Drys fast too. Get this hat you will love. Who cares what people say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Technically ideal, but lacks style. I work at a desert plant nursery and use this hat all day inside and outside of the greenhouses. I appreciate its lightweight and breathability along with the wide brim. I also like that it has an adjustable elastic strap around the crown of the head so I can cinch it on if it is windy outside. My only wish is that it looked less tactical gear and didn't have the huge (ang ugly) OR logo front and center because I loathe walking around as an advertisement all day. I chose the curry color, which seems a little brighter than khaki but still subdued. I would have been happier with more bold color choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new use I bought the hat to keep the sun off my face and neck while hiking. It fits comfortably and my head stays cool. I use it for hiking, but it has also become my dog-walking, gardening, and lawn mowing hat. I added a new use yesterday, it replaced the velvet academic hat I would usually wear at commencement ceremonies, Per Covid- guidelines we held our graduation ceremony outside, in 86 degree weather with a nice bright, un-occluded sun shining directly down on everyone. I wore my medieval robes and my Sombriolet. It looked, different, but there it is, another use for the Sombriolet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life aver for Outdoor ED teacher and football coach I am an Outdoor Education teacher and football coach so much of my time is spent out doors in all sorts of weather. This hat has been a God sent. whether I am on the water kayaking, hiking in the mountains, fly fishing on the river or on the practice field with my team I will always be shaded from the sun. This hat keeps the sun off my face and back and keeps me dry. It is ventilated very well and breathes well keeping my head cool in hot weather. The straps keeps it on my head even in very windy conditions. I cant say enough about this hay you cant go wrong.
