Sizing for the Outdoor Research Sombriolet Sun Hat:
I live in Texas where we see some really hot days. This hat is always in my pack during the spring and summer months. It virtually eliminates the need for sun screen on my face and neck. The quick drying fabric does a great job of wicking away any sweat. It has vents on top to increase the breathability.
I bought this hat 3 months ago. I am an Assistant Scoutmaster with the Boy Scouts and after a few outings in the hot sun I decided I needed something better that would block the sun and provide ventilation at the same time. This hat does great at both. I wear it outside working or playing, when I mow, and a week at summer camp. The brim is wide enough to block the sun. The four vents are great for allowing air to flow through, helping to keep you cool. The hat does have a stiff rim around the brim, but I can still roll it up and pack it away when I need to. It also has an adjustable draw string to adjust the fit of the hat.My brother likes it so much that he ordered himself one. Another of the Assistant Scoutmasters is getting himself one also. I have received a lot of positive comments about the hat. I did a lot of research on this hat and several others. I am very happy I bought this hat. I would definitely buy this hat again.
This is a nice hat for shade but the hat is not useable in conditions where the wind exceeds about 10 mph. Wind pushes the brim of the hat either up or down over the user's eyes.
