    Too Big or Too Small

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

    I've had ~5 of these hats in the past several years, and it keeps getting better.
    Only gripe is that the difference between the M and L is huge.
    M constricts my head, and L is loose enough to fly off in a gust.
    Even a little loose, this hat is still my go-to for hiking and backpacking.

    Great Hat!

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

    Although I have rarely folded the cap up, it has this capability and fits in a cargo pocket with room to spare. Due to the fabric, it doesn't tend to keep wrinkles or creases. You can yank the cap out of a pocket and it looks fine when you put it on.

    The fabric sheds water at least to some extent. I have been rained on and it has never seemed to get soaked. I'm not sure how breathable it is, but I've never found it too warm.

    I now have four of these hats. (One is a ferrosi with the zippered pocket on the side, which is also more shallow than this cap's style.) Not just for the great outdoors, I'll wear these anytime!

    Hey Wesley,
    Thank you for the great review! There is a reason this hat is one of our top sellers! Interesting about not getting wet... it isnt waterproof, but it does fit well, breathe well, and the foldable brim is rad!

    Thank you for taking the time to write,

    The Go-to

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

    The Radar Pocket Cap has been my go-to hat for outdoor adventure for the better part of a decade. I never go for a climbing, hiking, or canyoneering trip without the Radar on my head.
    Useful in all conditions this hat especially shines in the desert where it provides ample sun protection without making you feel overheated.
    The foldable bill enables the Radar Pocket Cap to easily slip into a pack or pocket when the time comes to put on a helmet.

    Great hat, made for the outdoors!

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

    Love the feel and build of this hat. Looks great on but can be tossed in a backpack without fear of ruining the shape/fit. Initially I purchased the large (based on reviews posted here) but found that it was too small. So in my case it certainly didn't run large. I had to return for the XL which fit perfectly! The hat has no elasticity so I can definitely see why the fit of this hat is such a question. It either fits or it doesn't. Once you find your size it's a great hat!

    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.

    Love it

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    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.

    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.

      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)

            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.

              I am wondering if this hat runs large or small. There is no medium in the color i want and want to know if i can just order a large and be ok. Please Help!

              Is there a hole in the back for a ponytail?

              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!
