I have had this hat for 18 years now. I don't mean I have had a couple of these hats in this style for that long. I mean the same d@%# hat! Absolutely bombproof. Every winter it is my goto hat. Cold, wet, and windy are what this hat thrives in. I have always liked large brimmed hats for the sun protection they provide, and prefer to grab this over any beanie or other hat for cold weather. Obviously, this isn't a very good hat for warmer weather. Anything above 65-70 degrees and I have use something else, but what do you expect? It's a winter hat, not a year round jack of all trades hat...
In short, if you need something to keep the sun off your face, the rain/snow off your head, and the wind from stripping away the valuable body heat, this is the hat you are looking for.
You don't have to be dead on with the sizing. There is an adjustable band inside the sweatband on the hat that allows you to fine tune the fit of the hat.
Recommend big time.
This hat is for cool to cold weather. It is simply great in rain. The ear flaps are the coup de gra in cold cold weather. The brim is great in cold, sunny weather with the sides snapped up. Too hot? simply fold the ear flaps up inside and you are good to go. Not a hat designed for hot summer weather. Get another hat for that. I wear it during cold, wet, spring kayaking trips. Three thumbs up!

How does the sizing work for this hat? I have a small head, a 7 in fitted hats. should i get the small or medium?
The small works out to a normal hat size 6 7/8, while the medium fits size 7 1/8. I'd go medium if I were you.
Cold Climate Kayking? Buy it!!!
I live in Southeast Alaska and bought this hat after it was recommended by a friend. I've been kayaking and river rafting with it and I can't express how much I love this hat. Climate ranged from ~50-70 degrees Fahrenheit with heavy rain and wind. This hat has a fleece liner with earflaps which can be worn down in the cold and when it's raining, or tucked up into the hat when it's nicer out. The Gore-tex never failed and stayed completely dry up top. I would definitely recommend buying this hat if you'll be kayaking in colder/rainy weather.

How is this hat in the heat, seems like this is more of a winter hat then summer camping and hiking trips around Wisconsin.
It will be alttle hot in the heat....
Try some of there some summer hats....
I would second that. I had it on right around 70 degrees Fahrenheit and it was getting too warm.
Functional Rain/Snow Hat
I'll start off by saying that I am not a hat person. I have never really looked good in them and very few actually appeal to me aesthetically. That being said, while I do wear a ski hat or baalaclava when snow blowing or under really adverse winter condtions, I have felt the need for a more "casual" hat to brave most of winter. The Seattle Sombrero always appealed to me but I really wanted something a bit heavier and to cover my ears when cold. The Snoqualmie Sombrero fits the bill perfectly! You can use the fold down ear/neck cover or fold in up in the hat. Same for the chin drawstring. The inside Cinch-Band adjustment is also a great feature. I now grab this hat every time I leave the house in winter - whether snowshoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, or even out on the town!
I've had this hat for more than 10 years. I've worn it skiing in very adverse conditions. I've worn it in the rain on several occassions. This hat has allways kept my noggin warm and dry. This hat perfoms like no other and after 10+ years of abuse still performs like it was brand new. I have received numerous compliments on it especially in a down pour when everyone else is soaked and I'm dry. If your looking at it buy it you won't regret it.

I ordered another hat before the hat was reduced in price. I would to like to change my order and include this hat instead.

This Hat Rocks
So far have only worn this hat in one winter storm, but I gotta tell ya - it fits, is warm, stays on my head, and has gotten me more compliments than I can ever remember.
Two best products out there...
The Snoqualmie Sombrero and the Seattle Sombrero are the best two rain products out there. These never get left behind unless rain is impossible. The "Snoqualmie" version optionally covers your ears, the "Seattle" version does not. If you can get only one, get the "Snoqualmie". You can thank me later!
Ordered this puppy just in time. I thought it was supposed to snow when it got below freezing. Not in Chicago. Had a long walk with 20mph plus winds and very cold icy rain. just put my head down into it and the hat did the rest. Wide brim covered my face and earflaps kept my lobes toasty. Really like going without a hood.
well ,the first day i recieved the hat ,it was tested ,i went to work and it was a mixed bag of winter weather, so off i went sporting my new sombrero ,while working outside i was completely dry,the sombrero fit like a glove ,nice and comfy. it was kinda funny cause every time i leaned over a puddle of water came off my hat ,i highly recommend this hat if your an outside person who wants comfort and wants to keep your head dry ,awsome job
I take at least 12 camping trips a year, including all four seasons with canoeing, hunting, fishing, and everyday use. Weather here in Minnesota is extremely variable, and this hat has not let me down.
The toughest test of my hat came in the early spring, with three days of solid rain and cold temperatures.
Bone dry and warm.
I love the storm flap. It folds up easily, so it's not a hassle, and knowing it's there if I need it is a great feeling.
In short, I love my hat, and I use it all the time.
The price is a little daunting, but I new it was worth it from the first time I put it on.
Another thing I like about it is the "Made in USA" tag inside.
FWHC... Foul Weather Head Comfort
I am a union carpenter working for a theme park and I bought your Snoqualmie Sombrero because in all foul weather during the year I climb a roller coaster everyday to check the structure to make sure it has no loose parts.
Sometime it is necessary to climb out and tighten a loose bolt at 180 ft. Hanging on to my safety harness when the cold wind and rain is hitting me hard my head is nice and comfee under your great hat. Thanks for making such a great warm, dry, and comfortable piece of head wear........
