Description

The sun has nothing on you when you're wearing the Outdoor Research Sun Runner Cap.

Even if the sun is blinding, enjoy your after-work jog with the Outdoor Research Sun Runner Cap on your noggin. Outdoor Research constructed this stiff-brimmed hat with UPF 30+ SolarShield Fabric and gave it a removable sun skirt for total protection. The Sun Runner Cap's side air vents and moisture-wicking Coolmax headband keep you cool and comfortable, while the adjustable Cinch-Strap gives you a custom fit.

I have a big head, 25" circumference - or a size 8. Does the size XL have adjustments that would allow me to fit it to my big noggin'? Mark

tex,
The Outdoor Research Sun Runner Cap does not have a circumference adjustment like a snap or velcro, but it does have a good amount of elstic pleated in the back to allow for a variable fit if you are between sizes.

Outdoor Research calls it the SunRunner, but here all it's doing is a moderately-fine job of keeping my eyelashes frost-free in a weird frozen fog at 3am on the Kahiltna.
I probably have upwards of...eh, let's just use the ubiquitous "hundreds" quantifier, of photos of me in this hat, or in one of the 4 hats of this type I have owned.
It goes under my helmet, under my beanie, over my dome, under a buff, over a buff, in a hood, even OVER the hood on one of my floppy-hooded puffs (no drawstrings on that puff's hood...thing gets all manner of askance...)
Wearing it spilled over into casual life, then into work life, sometime around late 2009 and pretty much everybody I know has since become disgusted with how frequently I wear it.
I think it's actually turning into a bit of an...issue.
I tried to shake things up with a shiny, black Craft hat recently, but it's just not the same vibe, man...

The skirt thing on this is great if you don't like schmozzing sun goo all over your neck and ears and cheeksandface every 8 hours.
I took mine to a tailor and had a snap installed on the front, so I could secure it from wind. I don't like the tie-down solution they went with.
But I don't use it much. I posted a pic here somewhere of the hat with the skirt and my little snap engineering project.

It dries fast, the velcro strap is nice to crank your lid down in the wind, the sides (which are not visible in this pic) vent out, so it never feels hot.
It's a great hat.
Sometimes when I like something, I buy 4 of them at once because I know the company will discontinue it before I stop liking it.
I did that with this hat. I have 2 left and both are pretty gnarred-out. One gets frequently bleach-washed and is thus starting to look more not-here than here, and the other one used to be white and is now just yellow and very sadpants, and that is gross.
Glad they are still making them.
Everybody who knows me probably wishes they'd stop making them...suckers.

Wearing my Sun Runner at Spray Falls,Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore. Really happy with the performance. Best hat I've tried. It dries quickly and breaths reasonably well.

It is very Breathable (I use it in the desert in the hottest days), it is so lightweight that you can't feel it and Durable
If you looking for a great hat for a hard time, this is it!

Works perfectly

This hat is fantastic. I used it nearly every day for my last trip. It works really well even under a helmet, provided your helmet has an easily-adjustable circumference. I like that the rear flap can be pulled up easily so you can access the strap to your sunglasses or anything else.

I usually wear a medium/large size in helmets and hats. I got this hat in size large and it worked well.

OR has some of the best hats on the market for protecting you against the elements. The sun runner is just one prime example. My brother runs it while he fishes.
