- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
This hat looks a little goofy to me, but it sure beats getting sun burned. It does a great job at keeping the sun out of my eyes. It's a little floppy, but that makes it really easy to pack up and store in your backpack when it's not in use.
Works as advertised
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Great hat, full coverage of face and neck. No frills, looks good and does its job. Used this to hike across the Grand Canyon (Rim to Rim). Packable without losing it's shape.
Outdoor Research Sun Protection Products
If you're not careful, long days outside hiking, paddling or climbing can leave your skin damaged and burned. To keep you protected from damaging ultraviolet rays, Outdoor Research offers a full line of sun hats, and UV Protective shirts and pants designed to keep you protected from the sun.
OR Sun Bucket
This hat is prefect for keeping the sun off the ears and back of neck. May look a little old manish, but hey Arizona sun is no joke! The fit is small, so if you're on the fence about fit go up a size. The strap is also a plus, keep the hat planted to the head in gusty updrafts and strong winds.
Wasn't crazy about it
I ordered the sand/dark grey in the large. It was a little more floppy than I thought it would be. Also, the color looks white on line but it is more of a really light tan. I was hoping for it to be white. I ended up returning it.
The Giant Helmet
I picked one of these up in the Sand/Dark Grey scheme and so far I am quite pleased with it. The fit and comfort are great, and I like that the brim size seems to strike the balance between the limited coverage of a ballcap and the ridiculousness of some of the floppy-brimmed sun hats. The fabric is breathable and soft, and I love the size/fit adjustabilty. I never seem to be able to wear the fitted hats; I fall between sizes. I wear a 7 1/2 to 7 5/8 in fitted hats and the XL fits well; I cinch the cord down ever so slightly. All in all, highly recommended.
A little nerdy
I returned this because the color is sort of blah(khaki/dark grey) and it has a nerdy plastic cinch on the back. I like the shape, fit and brim size but I was hoping for a technical hot weather hiking hat that I could also wear more casually (on the street).
Do You Carry the Hat In A Small
Do You Carry the Hat In A Small
the hat has an adjustable draw string...it will fit most heads
OR does not make this hat in size small. Only medium, large, and extra large are available. As noted in the description, it is adjustable. I would try the medium, and if it doesn't fit, send it back.
Top of A.L. at Zion
Light weight and cool. Not too big so you can still look up an to the side really well. The head strap and the chin strap ensures that this wonderful hat will not blow away. I've crushed it and stuffed it in small pockets a few times and it bounces right back into shape.
Stays on well during activity
S. Utah fun in the sun
Great hiking hat!
I got this hat for a week long hiking trip to Glacier National Park, and it was the perfect choice. It did an awesome job of keeping the sun out of my eyes and held up to the strong winds there without blowing off of my head or the brim flipping up. The only drawback was that the brim hangs low, so the hat tended to get pushed forward by the top of my backpack. Just a minor issue though for an otherwise great hat. Also holds it shape after being stuffed in a backpack or suitcase. Highly recommended!
Hiking Cold Springs NY
I like this hat for several reasons: it's very lightweight, the brim is wider than my other bucket hats but not so much that it looks like I'm on safari, the removable strap, the adjustable fit, and it looks good. The one thing I'm thinking that 'might' make it better is an absorbent lining, but I can also see the downside to that and won't hold it against this item that I really do like.
I wear this anytime I am outside during the summer. Outstanding!
Great hat! Bought to use when I am outside with my son. Brim is just wide enough to block the sun, but not so wide that it gets in the way. String is great for keeping the hat on when in windy situations.
I normally dislike wearing hats on my head but sometimes I dislike the sun cookin' my noggin more. Kayaking out of Channel Islands harbor on a warm sunny day is one of those times.
The chinstrap kept the ocean breeze from ejecting the hat from my head. The crown cinch-cord gave it a more custom fit while the pull portion on the cord (in the back) gave me somewhere to clip my fishing license to.
It's lightweight so it didnt bother me one bit. It also has amazing breathability. I was sure I'd have a steamed melon after paddling around so much. Not so! This also works great on your face for naps. It lives in my car for them lunchtime siestas.
This was a total score on SAC. If this thing somehow gets lost, I won't hesitate replacing it.
Outdoor Research Sun Bucket Hat
This hat is outstanding. It adjusts to give you a great fit and covers all the little parts that usually burn. It gets hot here in central Texas, but my head stays fairly cool under the Sun Bucket. I went back to order another in the sand color but Backcountry was out of stock, a big disappointment. I very highly recommend this hat.
The perfect sun hat.
This hat is perfect. I have three OR hats now, and they are all exceptionally useful and effective.
Cool and comfy!
This was just what I wanted -- a sun hat that won't cook my head. It's pretty water-resistant too -- kept my head dry while I was in the rain for a while, though I haven't tried it for a full day in the rain yet. The XL fits my big (well, for a female) noggin with room for my tailbone-length hair, if I feel like tucking it under it.
