This is the second OR Seattle Sombrero I have ordered. My first one is 5 years old and still going strong. I bought this second one to replace the one my husband had.....which was 20 years old and had the lining start to dry rot. Mind you, my husband works outside and always wears this hat when it rains. (It wasn't leaking when we replaced it, either!). The fact that it is soft and crushable means you can stash it and take it anywhere. Also works as a good sun hat as the brim is wide enough to protect ears and back of neck as well as face. And unlike other rain hats, the brim is big enough in the back that the rain slides off and over the back of your coat, rather than down the back of your neck! A first rate product all the way around. Side brims also Velcro up out of the way when you don't need the ear coverage.

Great hat! It won't win any fashion awards, but I did receive 3 complements on it's madien voyage out in my front yard. It's perfect for gardening and outdoor adventures. Great protection from the sun. Turn sideways and velcro up the back, and you can lie in the hammock and keep the sun out of your eyes.

Full disclosure - I am part of a GORE-TEX product testing program and received this hat as a sample while working at a gear shop. That said, the hat still rocks. It might not be the most stylish hat out there, but it is waterproof, keeps water off your face and from dripping down the back of your neck. On sunny days it is not too warm to be used as a sun hat, and the entire thing packs down small and light enough to disappear in a backpack.

I'd also recommend: OR, Marmot, Patagonia, Mammut

I had a Seattle Sombrero years ago and somehow lost it in a move. I'm so glad I could find another at zappos.com! I missed this hat all last winter during the heavy snowfalls. If you're a northerner like me, you cringe at the idea of using an umbrella in the snow (umbrellas in snow are for wimps!), but standard winter hats leave your face open to the elements, and you don't always want to wear a hood because it covers your ears and impedes your peripheral vision. The Seattle Sombrero has a wide enough brim to keep the snowflakes and sleet from messing with my contact lenses and mascara and wetting my hair in the back. And of course it can be used in rain and to keep sun off too. It's light and thin enough for warmer weather but waterproof, sturdy, and protective during colder weather, so it's just about perfect. I normally wear a 7 1/4 and my husband wears a 7 1/2, so I ordered the Large so we can share it. If you're not sure of your size, order up, because the inner drawstring enables you to tighten the fit.
