Awesome Hat; Runs Large

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

Great packable hat-- holds up to many washes without noticeable signs of wear. I consider myself to have a HUGE noggin, however, and the XL radar cap was way too big for me. I'm usually a snug fit in other XLs (e.g., Goorin Bros.), but I have to wear a large in this hat. And large is comfortable, but not snug. Perfect, really.

Great hat

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

Good looking, lightweight pocket hat. I got an XL for my super-wide skull and was pleased to find a hat that fits for a change. Nice job OR.

Love it

Love this hat. I have a small head and got the small. It fits but is pretty tight. Would return for a medium but wore it a bunch on a trip to Panama. Will probably buy the medium too.

Bought this hat for my wife, she says it's super comfy and functional. She can't wait to purchase more in different colors!

This hat rocks

After this hat was blown off my head on a route, I immediately bought another one. It's light, packs down well, and looks half-way decent for an outdoor-specific hat.

A little bit too tall in the front, should be a bit lower profile. But very lightweight and very large. I have huge melon and the XL swallows my head.

best hat

I had one, it got stolen. First thing I did when I realized it was gone.... got online and ordered a new one. Even if I had found the other one, having two would be fine. I never go anywhere without this hat on or in my bag. I love the short brim, the folding feature on it is also nice for when the hat is in my back pocket or in my pack.

Great hat

This is a great little hat that folds up and can be stashed almost anywhere,

got two of them

very handy. doesn't wrinkle when you stuff it in your pocket. good stuff.

the olive colour is better than the khaki, with this colour you'll see sweat-stains way much faster.

runs a bit big, as others have mentioned

i liked the hat and had read the reviews before ordering, but still ordered an XL; it was too big, so i exchanged easily and with the help of the BackCountry staff. It is a pleasure to deal with a company that appreciates and demonstrates good customer service; if I need anything in the future, i wlll definitely check with BackCountry

Love it

Packs great into a suitcase or backpack and you don't have to worry about bending the bill becuase it folds in half. Great fit and great for sun / rain. Even though it is not water proof it stills keeps your head dry in light rain. Not the most fashionable hat but its great for a hiking and backpacking.

Great Hat...

I love how yo can pack this hat away in your pack and still wear it with style when you take it out of the pack...I sometimes carry this hat on mountain bike rides when I know I am going to stop for food after...(good way to cover my helmet hair when I take my helmet off)

Is there a hole in the back for a ponytail?

Responded on

No there is no hole....Great hat regardless....

Responded on

Sadly no, but the women's Switchback cap has the same foldable brim construction as the radar, and has a ponytail holdr. Sorry ren, I am not sure if you are a chic with a ponytail or a dude! I do love the radar regardless, and I am a chic who wears a ponytail, just not with the radar cap!

perfect outdoor hat

This hat is just as good as most of the reviews say, if not better. Bought it for a vacation in Costa Rica and wore it every day hiking, beaching, etc. Just folded it up and pocketed it at night. I'm picky about these things from a style perspective, and this hat looks good.

The folding brim is awesome and looks good even after a couple weeks of solid wear and tear, including being stuffed into the pocket of my board shorts on a regular basis. The size chart is accurate and it is a medium depth hat - not as deep as a traditional new era fitted cap, but not too shallow either. I am ordering another color and will probably start wearing them around the city as well.

Just what I have been looking for.

My only problem is that all the colors aren't pictured here, so it is hard to pick the right size color combination without alot of hassle. I have a relatively small head and the medium is a little loose, but comfortable. The small is snug. I don't need it snug, so I'm going for the medium. The bill of the hat has a scored seam that allows for folding the hat so it can be put into your back pocket. It does look a tad odd, but isn't a deal breaker for me. Backcountry, could you show the other colors for those of us who are picky about colors?

Nice Hat

This is a neat hat. It packs well due to the fact the bill is two pieces. Quite an idea.

Best hat ever

I have problems finding hats I like I bought this one as a back up to the first one I bought because I like it so much. It fits great it looks great I hope they never discontinue it

My new favorite hat!

I don't leave home without it. I love it! Also, I ordered an extra large and it was actually too big. With a flexfit hat I always get a l-xl and it's usually tight on my head until it gets broken in. Enjoy!
