    Details

    The scorching sun doesn't stand a chance against the Papyrus.

    Be sure to put on the Outdoor Designs Papyrus Brim Hat before you leave the chalet. It's going to be another hot one in the mountains, and this UPF-30-rated straw hat helps keep you comfortable as you trek up the trail. A TransAction headband helps wick moisture away from your brow, while a removable chin cord comes in handy when the mountain wind whips fiercely around.

    Lightweight Hat

      I got this for my boyfriend and he wears it every day when he's coaching football, and on every hiking and fishing trip we take. It's super lightweight so it keeps him cool when the sun is out and dry when it's raining! The straw/ burlap material is more present than I thought it would be from the picture but I was pleasantly surprised at how it looked

      Lightweight Hat

      Great hat!

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

      I really like this hat! It's lighter and more flexible than I thought it would be. The straw in the hat is soft, it's not itchy and is very comfortable. It's also very breathable. When squished, the hat usually returns to its normal shape.

      Great hat!

      Head Umbrella

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

      Love this hat. My first 'sun' hat that I have ever purchased and I couldn't be happier about it. Nice and lightweight and comfortable. Does just what it is supposed to do and keep the sun off of your face.

      My head is 7 3/8 and I picked up the medium. Fits great. I feel like I am actually between the M and L but I'd rather have the hat be a little snug as opposed to loose seeing as in the wind this baby is a sail.

      More durable than expected!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I bought this hat for my boyfriend to use on his climbing trip to Alaska. He primarily needed it for walking on the glacier on bluebird days and it didn't disappoint. Before he left he was concerned that it wouldn't hold up well if he needed to ever stuff it into his climbing bag. Glory, glory, hallelujah! He crammed the OR papyrus in his bag with all his climbing gear and it came out just fine. It even fit under his climbing helmet and he was able to wear it while climbing! Here's a photo of my Lodgemen lookin cool in the OR Papyrus brim hat!

      Decent Hat, Great Price

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

      I like the style, and got it on sale for a great price. It's pretty easy to misshape by setting something down on it, but putting it in proper position over night gets it back to shape. I don't feel like it would hold up if you expect take stow it repeatedly in a bag. Overall, it keeps the sun and rain out of my face, and has nice open weave that runs from the brim to the top which allows circulation within the hat. I suggest using a water repellant on the top and brim.

      Does the job

      Good hat for days spent out in the sun. Feels cooler than having something on your neck. And it floats in the water. And drys and still looks good! Smash it up, and no problems, comes right back to the same shape. Does tend to come off in wind if its not pulled down/you lift your head up too much. But there is a strap for that...

      Currently my favorite sun hat

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

      The OR Papyrus Brim Hat is a great sun hat that is comfortable, vents well and most importantly, blocks harmful UV rays. I just got this hat for a recent trip to a region without much, if any, shade and wore the Papyrus from sunrise to sunset. It fits well, I got an XL and my typical fitted hat size is somewhere between 7 1/2 and 7 5/8.

      I LOVE this hat!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I wear this hat all the time now. I wear it boating, fishing, hiking, climbing even just around town! It is very breathable and is great for keeping the sun off my face. It has taken a beating too and is still holding up just fine. Love it!

      A durable classic

      I love a good straw hat to keep the sun at bay. Problem is, they normally don't last more then a summer season or 2 at best. This hat from OR is super durable yet stylish like the classic straw hat, but it wont shred to bits when you jam it in your pack!

      Your own little slice of shade

        I have worn the OR Papyrus brim hat on several occasions now. i live in tropical Okinawa and let me tell you it sure gets hot and humid here. I am typically a ball cap kind of guy, so this is my first wide brim straw hat. My hat size is between 7 3/8 and 7 5/8 and I bought the Large and it fits great. I wore it to my kids last week of school outdoor field day and was in the sun for several hours. The hat kept the sun of my head and face. I did not apply sunscreen to my upper face or ears and did not get even a touch of color. The straw build of the hat allows the air to circulate with any breeze, so I found my head being cooler than if I worn my trusty ball cap. Only having the hat for a couple of weeks I cannot comment on longevity, but it appears to be another solid product from OR.

        Outdoor Research Sun Protection Products

        If you're not careful, long days outside hiking, paddling or climbing can leave your skin damaged and burned. To keep you protected from damaging ultraviolet rays, Outdoor Research offers a full line of sun hats, and UV Protective shirts and pants designed to keep you protected from the sun.

        Another Great Hat from OR

          I used one of these last summer for a variety of activities. Unlike other sun hats I've had in the past, this one held its shape through a long list of abuse from water to being crunched in a suitcase. The medium fit my head well, but not well enough, so any gust of wind required a quick sprint to chase after it.

          My husband is exactly between sizes (58mm), which size would you recommend we order, M or L? Thanks!

          I would recommend going for the Large. I am also between sizes at 60 cm (Large and XL) and the XL fit me a lot better. Also, if the size you decide to order does not fit your husband, you can always exchange it for free, we will cover the shipping costs both ways.
