I hate hoods
As the title says, you get the point. That is why this hat made my day. I'm moving from Montana (dry) to England (wet) and knowing the conditions I would be in, I went rain gear shopping. This hat is 100% waterproof and breaths better than my jacket (from what I can tell). I also use it when it's not raining when I'm out running biking or climbing just to keep the sun out of my eyes. This hat is a great move for those of us who wear glasses. Keeping the lenses dry is always key to being able to function outdoors. GO MARMOT!
