Not the actual bugout hat, but good

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

they have the sentinel brim hat which has a larger brim. I found the actual bugout hat at an rei but wanted a different color and found it on here. I purchased it for a trip to utah and received the sentinel hat. I called backcountry and they next day aired the bugout hat, unfortunately it wasn't picked up in time and didn't make it to me by the time I left for my trip. Wouldn't have mattered since when I got home they sent the same sentinel hat. The sentinel hat is a great hat but it does have a wider brim , I was just looking for a hat with a little less DAD-HAT vibe. Pretty breathable and light hat, i wear a 7 1/2 - 7/5/8 hat and the XL fit pretty well

Hey Jordan, Sorry about the two mistakenly shipped hats. I've reached out to our warehouse to have them investigate into what is causing the problem. Appreciate the feedback and glad the Sentinel worked out okay in the interim.

Outdoor Research Bugout Brim Hat - Men's

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is my favorite fishing hat. Fits great. I love the side vents with the mesh panels to keep cool in the summer. Lightweight, summer, breathable. Be nice if the brim was a little bigger, but it's nice. Keeps the gnats out of my face.

Floppy Hat!

I finally broke down and bought a floppy hat. Keeps the sun off my neck, and even keeps the bugs away. Also really nice to get it soaking wet and wearing it when its really hot out, Air Conditioning!

No one makes clothing accessories like Outdoor Research and this hat is not different. Incredibly light weight, packs down to nothing without ruining the shape and it keeps you nice and shaded so you can go all day long. Do your skin a favor and get this hat, you won't regret it.

Thanks Joe! Not to even MENTION the bug protection! OR kicks ass in hats. They just do. Fit, features, style... Thank you for your review! Leta OR Rep

I have an older model of this hat that I absolutely love. I take it pretty much on every outdoor adventure - hiking/backpacking, fishing, boating, disc golf at the park. You can pretty much throw it into your pack or pocket and take it anywhere you might need it. Super stowable and has a brim wide enough to provide good protection. My preference over a ball cap or hat with a stiffer brim.

AND..... it keeps the bugs away from your face! SCORE!! Thanks for the review, Ryan - Leta OR Rep

Got this prior to a week long trip to Yellowstone. It was summer in Yellowstone with temps in the mid 80's to lower 90's. The trip included several long day hikes. The fabric and mesh were highly breathable. The one time I did sweat (hottest day) the fabric dried quickly. The insect shield is definitely worth it. The last thing you want in the middle of a 1200 ft ascent are gnats and flies in your face. My wife's hat did not contain the insect guard much to her dismay. There was a noticeable difference between the two hats in this regard. The hat provided excellent sun protection, which was a big plus given the higher UV exposure. This is another great product by OR and I highly recommend it.

Bought this for my father when he came to visit and he was very happy with the fit. It was hard to tell if the bug repel worked because we didnt go anywhere that had a lot of mosquitoes at the time

I bought this hat for protection while I am outside. The shade helps a lot while out in the sun and the sweat band fits snug on my head. I have never bought insect repellent clothing before so I am excited to see how well it works later on in the summer.
