Description

Escape from the sun even if there's no shade in sight.

Like a shaded pond in the desert or an umbrella at the beach, the Outdoor Research Women's Oasis Sombrero lends respite from the sun and protects your skin from harmful UV rays. And while no one knows for sure how much protection you receive while resting under a palm tree, the Oasis Sombrero has been scientifically engineered to provide UPF-50-rated protection from that giant ball of burning hydrogen in the sky.
  • Wide-brim protection casts a larger shadow
  • Foam-stiffened brim floats in water
  • Drawcord adjustment lets you dial in the fit
  • Removable chin cord does exactly what you'd expect it would

Great Hat

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got the Sand Large hat. It is pretty much white and i love the flower pattern on the inside. There is no venting on the top like some of the other shade hats and so it can be a little warm with no ventilation but i like it and will just remove it when in the shade to let my head breathe. It has a pull adjustment that allows you to tighten it around your head plus it has a nice under chin pull for if there is wind.

Nice hiking hat.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I was looking for a nice hat to keep the sun off my face when hiking. This does the job nicely. I got a white-ish color so the sun wouldn't get too hot on my head. I like the flower pattern on the inside of the hat too.

What's the size of the brim? Also, is the brim stiff? I'm looking for a hat with a brim that won't blow up and away when I'm running or biking. Thanks.

Comfortable Sun Protection

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I recently purchased this hat and wore it last weekend canoeing, walking, and relaxing in the sun. I like that the brim is slightly wider in the back to cover the neck. I love that it comes in three sizes and has an adjuster to provide further size customization; most hats are too big on me, but the small fit me perfect (my head is 21 inches in circumference). I was also pleased that the hat stayed on in strong winds even when I did not have the chin strap tightened. I would definitely recommend this hat to anyone who wants sun protection while being active.

Shade!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought the lightest color possible (sand) for adventures in the desert. So far I've used it on a river trip and was SO very happy I had it. The temp. difference around my face and shoulders felt amazingly cooler. It will be coming with me, starting this weekend, on all of my fall desert escapades. I usually wear a med. in men's and a large in women's. I bought the large in this one and it fits great.

Shade-providing hat

I bought this hat to take on a backpacking trip across the Grand Canyon. It never failed me and kept the sun off my face.

Is the sizing on the women's hats the same as on the outdoor research men's hats?? I would like to buy one as a gift for my mate and has worn my Men's large previously, so I was considering a Medium for her.

Hats are sized for adults and not differentiated by sex.
