    The fit has changed.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    I love these hats. I recently ordered my 3rd and 4th after losing my 2nd on a vacation.

    However, the sizing of the XL has changed markedly from the ones I bought in 2013 and 2014. It's now pretty darn snug and was a comfortable fit previously. To be honest, after receiving them I thought they'd sent L's but they're labeled XL. I normally fit 7 5/8 so by OR's charts these ought to work. But it's tight.

    I'm hoping they'll stretch out a bit after a few wearings.

    Great piece of gear

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

    super lightweight, stylish, folds up and fits in a small pocket, friggin LOVE this thing. No complaints from me. I got the large and have a 7 1/4" head by baseball cap standards. Also pic related. That was taken in heavy wind, cap stayed on, was impressed.

    Great piece of gear

    nice hat

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large

    I have quite the large head so I ordered an XL and it was larger than I normally buy (7 5/8 roughly or L/XL flex fit) to the point that I could tuck my ears into the band so I ordered a L to replace it and it's bigger than a normal large but pretty tight on my head. The depth of the cap is right on the money but I am hoping I will be able to stretch it out some without getting a headache. I needed something to fold up into my pack or back pocket for traveling and it does just that. Other than the size issue this is a great looking and functioning cap. A stretch band would be nice to fix the size issues.

    Awesome cap

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

    I love this cap. I have run in it and have used it for several years working as a kayak guide in coastal SC.

    It breathes well, rinses clean with ease and stows easily in back pocket. The short bill provides some shade and cuts glare reflecting off of the water, but doesn't interfere with large framed sunglasses.

    Good hat

      Good hat, very packable. Only gripe is trying to get the sizing right. I purchased the medium, and while it's a little snug, it's not uncomfortably so.

      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!

      Great, great hat. Only buy the XL if you have a head like Wayne Campbell's brother. Size down and you can put a lid on it.

      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

      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

      • 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.

        I am wondering if this hat runs large or...

        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!
