    Like wearing a plastic bag on your head, only better.

    When the sky's crying and you have ground to cover, top off your rain suit with the Outdoor Research Ghost Rain Hat. It's a lightweight, versatile hat with a classic bucket style, made of packable nylon and coated with water-resistant polyurethane. All the seams are taped for extra protection, too. The Ghost's party piece is it's removable Gore-Tex Paclite crown cover, which stows easily into the low-profile pocket when the sun's out and quickly pulls out to cover up the mesh crown when things get wet.

    • 70D nylon with a PU coating

    • Fully taped seams
    • Supplex nylon under brim
    • Internal Cinch-Band adjustment

    Great rain hat

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L

    Amazing in the rain, especially with the rain cover, i just wish i would have chosen the lighter color. The grey can get pretty warm in direct sun, but with the rain part stowed away it breaths well. The adjustable traps are nice, i would say size up if you are at all in between sizes... other reviews say the same but the fit is true with the rain cover up. Definitely a great design and goes with me on just about every trip.

    Best hat eva

    • Size Bought: Large?

    I got a large, I wear my hair up, but there is an adjustable velcro inside for sizing. I live in NM and this hat keeps me cool and handles water great. Worth it.

    Great hat.

    As a greens crew worker @ a c.c. This hat can have a very positive effect on your day. 8+ hr day of rain and a dry head & neck are a game changer. Works perfectly. Only issue is sizing. Runs true to size with rain cover up ( intended purpose of purchase) bet gets tight when the rain cover is stowed into pocket. Would buy up a size to get more comfortable fit when stowing rain cover for a vented sun hat. Overall very pleased.

    The hat I've been looking for

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    I often spend time hiking, or just being outdoors, in the summer sun. I've had a nice wide brim hat for that. However, when the summer sun is followed by that summer thunderstorm, my rain suit didn't keep my head dry, unless I tried to wear the hood and the wide brim hat together. Not a good look. I am hoping that this hat will do both jobs. It fits well, and it looks good. Storing the rain cover is easy. The descriptions don't say that there is a velcro adjustable headband. I measure exactly halfway between M and L. I ordered a Large and it fits well, snug even with the cover stowed. I'd say this runs small, and with the sizing adjustment, you should probably order a size up, maybe.
