Like wearing a plastic bag on your head, only better.
When the sky's crying and you have ground to cover, top off your rain suit with the Outdoor Research Ghost Rain Hat. It's a lightweight, versatile hat with a classic bucket style, made of packable nylon and coated with water-resistant polyurethane. All the seams are taped for extra protection, too. The Ghost's party piece is it's removable Gore-Tex Paclite crown cover, which stows easily into the low-profile pocket when the sun's out and quickly pulls out to cover up the mesh crown when things get wet.

- Mesh crown with removable Gore-Tex Paclite 2L crown cover

Best hat eva
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: Large?
I got a large, I wear my hair up, but there is an adjustable velcro inside for sizing. I live in NM and this hat keeps me cool and handles water great. Worth it.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Med
As a greens crew worker @ a c.c. This hat can have a very positive effect on your day. 8+ hr day of rain and a dry head & neck are a game changer. Works perfectly. Only issue is sizing. Runs true to size with rain cover up ( intended purpose of purchase) bet gets tight when the rain cover is stowed into pocket. Would buy up a size to get more comfortable fit when stowing rain cover for a vented sun hat. Overall very pleased.
The hat I've been looking for
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
I often spend time hiking, or just being outdoors, in the summer sun. I've had a nice wide brim hat for that. However, when the summer sun is followed by that summer thunderstorm, my rain suit didn't keep my head dry, unless I tried to wear the hood and the wide brim hat together. Not a good look. I am hoping that this hat will do both jobs. It fits well, and it looks good. Storing the rain cover is easy. The descriptions don't say that there is a velcro adjustable headband. I measure exactly halfway between M and L. I ordered a Large and it fits well, snug even with the cover stowed. I'd say this runs small, and with the sizing adjustment, you should probably order a size up, maybe.
