Don't take your kid out on a bluebird day without the Outdoor Research Rambler Sombrero.
- Item #ODR0390
- Q & A
Full coverage, just what you want.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
My son and I are fans of our OR hats. We've lived in the Helios for years and with him growing out of the Helios instead of buying another I thought about trying this one. He really uses his sunhats for everything. Hiking, splash pad, farmers market, field trips at school... The Helios has always took care of him. But I wanted to try the Sombrero style and loved the coverage. Unfortunately it wouldn't be what we were looking for for our everyday adventures but hiking or fishing, long days in the sun would be PERFECT. A boy plays hard and with this wide brim it would get in the way unless again doing those activities where you're not running around in water and doing more neature exploration, even just chillin' hard in some rays. It has that great material like our Helios so the moisture doesn't sit and pull the hat down. It offers protection and easy to pack than most sunhats.
My son has a head circumference of 22" and a full head of thick curly hair so the Large was perfect. Even without the hair I probably would have purchased the Large which shows as 22.5" with the size chart.
Excellent Sun Protection
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
We purchased this for our 1 year old. The sizing isn't for infants but it is adjustable so it can fit much smaller. Also the drawstring chin strap is great and has a quick release system so you don't have to adjust every time. The level of shade is unsurpassed.
I bought this for my six year old fair skinned red head. I ordered the Medium, it fit great, but I exchanged it for the large because I wanted him to be able to wear it for a longer period of time. The customer sevice people were great to work with, so helpfull!! We are an outdoors family and
I will definitly be shopping here again!
still too large, but...
I first ordered the Youth size L for myself (I have a small head) but had to exchange it as it was too large. Got the M and am keeping it, but it is STILL actually way too large! The measurements for the hat are not true to size. I measure 20 1/2 around my head, and accordingly, the M should have fit. So now I pull the sizer on the hat to make it fit right, and the brim is all out of whack--curly and wavy. But I needed it, so I'm keeping it.
Love the hat!
I am an adult with a small head so bought a small first ( too small) then bought a medium which is perfect! Nice and lightweight and provides excellent cover both for front of face and back of neck. Would recommend.
Best hat we've tried
My husband bought one of these for my 4-year-old daughter and we've loved it so much I just bought another one for my 2-year-old son. The hat he had been using (made of cotton) was too hot and caused his head to get very sweaty. This hat is so lightweight that it is much cooler and I would imagine also more comfortable. The adjustable drawstrings (both on the chinstrap and around head circumference) make for a snug fit...stays on even when fairly windy. It provides great sun protection. It's light weight means it also dries fast which is nice when they wear the hats in the water.
Kid's Rambler Sombrero
I bought this adorable hat for my 4-mo-old son. I love the fact that it has a chin strap as other hats tend to fly off his little head or fall from side-to-side. The external drawcord in the back of the hat helps provide a snug fit as well. My son's head circ. is 17.5 in, so I went w/a size small (1-3 yrs). It fits fine w/the external drawcord and will give him room to grow. The only thing I don't like about the hat is that the brim gets a little bent out-of-shape due to the heavier material it's made of. Not a big deal obviously. It's a great hat! I also appreciated the service/delivery as it was quick and easy.
Kid's Rambler Sombrero
This hat is lightweight, folds to fit in a backpack and it's wide brim provides great coverage for little faces, ears, necks (and shoulders in my 4 year old daughter's case). I bought this hat- one each for my whole family when my daughter started asking to wear mine! Kid's size Large is the same as Womens size Medium. For our family one size works for all. I definitely recommend this hat!
If my daughter head is 19in can I size up...
If my daughter head is 19in can I size up to the medium, so it will last longer or will it be too big?
If it was a ball cap style, I'd say stick to the Small. Since this guy has a chin strap, you should be able to make this one work for her until she grows into it...

Does this hat float if it flies out of the boat?
Yes it will float for a short period of time. After several minutes in will become water logged and sink below the surface. Hope this helps.

what size head does this fit. My son has a 17 inch head and I am not sure if htis will fit.
A size small (1-3 yrs) will work fine as the external drawcord allows you to adjust to your son's head size.
