My brother is an avid backpacker and has been using his for seven years. I borrowed it for a late summer family trip to Bear Lake that turned out to be very wet. This hat kept me warm and dry as I set up shelter and started a fire while my wife and kids hid from the rain in the car. After using it on that trip I had to have my own! I have used mine several times already this fall and can't imagine how I was able get by without it! Outdoor Research has several styles to choose from but I went with the Seattle Sombrero because of the Goretex material. Well worth the extra cash to get such a great product. Get one, you won't regret it.
