Outdoor Research Sombriolet Sun Hat

Spent some time shopping online and in stores for a good, wide brim hat. Found the Outdoor Research Sombriolet Sun Hat on sale for $30. One of the best purchases I have ever made. It keeps the sun off face/head/neck, stays cool (good venting), and has a comfy drawstring for the windy days.

The brim is a good 4 or 5 inches wide & has a flexible wire that runs the perimeter. So you can adjust it to help block out the sun. I lay mine flat on the floor when I get home & the brim flattens itself back out. I have washed it when it has gotten really sweaty & let it air dry with no problems.

I don't really need another one, but am considering buying one just to have a backup (probably in a different color). If there is sun, I don't leave home without it!
