The Outdoor Research Sombriolet Sun Hat is ideal for keeping your head and face well protected from the intense rays that the sun can produce, making it perfect for ski touring and spring/summer trips in the mountains.
It is constructed from UPF 50+ lightweight and breathable materials with a foam stiffened brim and a mesh lined crown with side vents and external mesh panels. The piping along the brim offers wind resistance should a breeze pick up, and the chin cord can be removed if required. The hat is also easy to compress and stow when not in use.

Customer Reviews of Outdoor Research Sombriolet Sun Hat
We have a few items of Outdoor Research clothing and hats in our household. It came as no surprise that the Sombriolet was every bit as well designed and made as those.
It may seem a little "OTT" for UK sunshine, but that is where it will get most if its use. The light weight and ability to fold flat makes it easily transportable. I am sure it will wash well if needed. The very broad brim will protect where sometimes the hats from a well known Canadian maker don't succeed.
Sizing appears spot on. I was able to try one on in a darker colour elsewhere, so I knew it would fit as I am at the upper size of the hat that I bought.
As a frequent hat wearer, I know this one will get plenty of use. I am sure it will offer the protection from the sun I want, and help to keep me cool. Overall a good buy.
