Sun Runner Cap

Just got back from a 5-day backpacking trip in the sunny central Sierra Nevada with this hat, and it worked great! I loved not having to pile sunscreen on my neck and ears - just a dollop on my nose and cheeks and I was ready to go. The hat seemed to help keep mosquitoes away too. I chose this particular hat because it looks slightly better than others in this category, and I wasn't disappointed - although we both looked a bit crazy in our sun hats, I did indeed look (a bit) more stylish on the trail than my hiking partner.

Like the hat very much; however, the hat is blue and the "sweat band" area is a light gray, which shows when you have the hat on. Meaning there is a light gray band around your skull (forehead). I feel that detracts from the look. Not sure if I'll keep this hat for that reason. Suggest the inner band be same color as hat.

Great gaiter. Easy to put on and take off, high quality, and durable. Backpacked almost 100 miles on the AT in Virginia with these during tick season. I didn't have a single tick on me, I'm sure in part because of these great gaiters. I also have OR Rocky Mtn. Low gaiters in black. For some reason, the Lows breathe a little bit better than these. Maybe it's the permethrin. That's why the four stars under comfort. I like the color too, but they do show dirt a little more than my black ones. Really an excellent product. Highly recommended by a guy who's backpacked almost all my life.

Got this last year for my very fair-skinned 6yo (who is now 7). It fits great, and we love the strap for windy beaches. It dries quickly as he often wears it into the water. The brims are large enough to prevent his face, ears, or neck from burning so I don't have to continuously lather him with sunscreen!

Cute hat, nicely made, the lining isn't too heavy but will retain some heat on sunny days. With a rather large head close to 24" with hair I was happy that the large fit.

If you golf and have sun-damaged skin on the back of your hand, this is the perfect way to protect both sides of your hands and not lose your grip! Wish they came in colors.

Love this hat! Brim is slightly smaller than others and is crushable. Mostly cotton, I sprayed it with water repellant. Perfect fitment and really keeps your head cool in the sun. A winner, winner!

Love this hat. I wear it hiking and golfing. The brim provides good coverage and the hat is lightweight and can adjust to fit tighter or looser (like when the wind starts to blow)! Very happy with this hat - I have two: blue and white.

I am 5'2", 117 lb, and the size 6 fits perfectly. I'm in my fifties and appreciate the higher waistline. No muffin top! I've been ordering (and returning) many similar styles. These are the most attractive as well as the most comfortable. They are very well made, and have none of the dreaded hook-and-loop closures. The mushroom color is beautiful. I only wish OR had stated the UPF value of the fabric. Really cute garment!

I'm 5'10", 152 lbs & these shorts fit perfectly. I'm bigger in the hips/upper thighs so it's nice to have capris that aren't tight across that region!

Loved this hat! Looks great, feels great, wonderful quality! HOWEVER, if you live in a warm climate and are looking for a sun hat, look further. This thing is hot. Very, very hot.

Excellent sun hat! I recently purchased these hats for my 10 and 7 year old daughters for a beach vacation. In the past the girls have not been big fans of wearing hats but they loved these, they found the hats comfortable and that they provided shady relief. We took the hats out boating and the tie helped them to stay on. Glad to have found these!

I love the hat except I wear a medium or small in every other kind of hat I've ever owned and this medium squishes my brain. Consider order at least 1 size up.

This hat is nice, but huge. It is large on my 9 year old who is an average sized child. Very light weight, good color.

Purchased for trip to beach w kids, was looking for a light, soft, wide brimmed hat for use when kids playing around in sand and just needed a break from constant sunscreen. This hat was outstanding for head, ears, complete face and neck protection, perfect - stayed on well on the breezy days also.

Most comfortable, practical, best fitting and looking hat I've ever owned. Better than all my previous UA hats. I would buy more if they got rid of the bright neon green and plaid for some manly colors.

I have a large hat size and a ton of hair, so this hat is just a bit too tight for me, but it's very cute and very warm for any woman with a normal hat size! I'm sad it doesn't fit right, but my teenage daughter is thrilled that she gets to inherit it.

It's nice to have finally found a beanie that fits my apparently gigantic noggin. I have a large hat size and it seems like all women's hats are designed for one size head, not taking into account some of us have crazy thick hair on top of our larger noggins. This hat actually has room to spare and the adjustable ponytail hole towards the bottom is nice. I live in an area where the wind blows constantly and having a windproof hat has kept my monster head nice and warm on blustery days. It's super cute, I've had several compliments on it. A great cool weather hat, but not quite warm enough for anything below 30 degrees or so, especially if you run cold anyway (I do).

I totally love this hat! I walk my dog just about every day for an hour in the sun, and this does the trick. Sun, rain, wind... it protects very well and is very durable but also lightweight and comfortable.

I recently bought the hat in size small to use when gardening. I have a small head so buying a hat in a store is not an option because they are always too big. This hat fit very well when it was adjusted, I was very happy! The top is very thin material so it doesn't make my head too hot, very satisfied.

Disagree with the first reviewer. I have used these for years. Yes, it's harder to use your touchscreen phone with gloves on. But the leather palms and volar fingers are very supple, and work better on a touchscreen than any other glove I've tried. They aren't that thick, so they aren't that warm, but they're just as warm as other gloves of about the same thickness. They are not as warm as mittens of the same thickness. I have a pair of Outdoor Research mitten shells that I wear over them when needed.
