CONS

  • I Look Stupid In It

Comments:

This hat is fab. On a boat trip the chin strap held it on in strong wind, on a sweaty trek in very humid jungle the cooling crystals kept my head cool and it was sooo comfortable. On the beach it kept me protected and in the rain it kept my head dry. Can pack flat in bag even though the brim is quite stiff. I look awful in holiday pics because I'm wearing it in every one and it really doesn't suit me but it's worth it for the comfort!

Comments:

I bought this hat to wear on a month-long interrailing trip around France, Italy and Switzerland in the warmest part of summer. Air flow and protection from the sun were my priorities, and I am pleased to report that this hat excelled! The crystals in the front of the hat, which sit against the brow of the wearer, are not just a gimmick. They require only a few minutes of immersion to re-fill, and provide very effective cooling for hours afterwards, even in full sun. The crystals are very convenient; I re-filled them every few days before setting out in the morning, and I even managed to re-fill them by throwing the hat into a Swiss lake. I still have the hat so, needless to say, it also floats! The water repellent coating on the hat protected me just as well as my anorak in heavy rain, and the insect repellent that is built into the fabric worked so well that I was never bitten while wearing it, much to the chagrin of my travelling companions! Only one thing went wrong with regards to this hat; one of the press-studs fell off. This was, however, and easy fix. I gently hammered the press stud back into position, so that it was pinched on again. I have had no problems with it since then. This hat was ideal for my travels. It has survived being screwed up and stuffed in my pack many, many times, and I expect to still be using it years from now.

PROS

  • Practical
  • Comfortable
  • Lightweight
  • Nice colour

CONS

  • A bit shapeless

BEST USES

  • Travel In Tropical Countr

Comments:

Was hoping for a more Indiana Jones type hat, but it's a bit shapeless so doesn't create quite the 'dashing adventurer' look we were hoping for. However, it's light and I think it will do the job well. Nice broad rim to protect the neck.

used for rain forest trekking. Sun protection in hot climates. Neck string provided security in strong winds. prevention of mozzi bites around my head area. Head always felt cool in humid atmospheres. Packed flat in my case. folded to fit in back pack and pockets but maintained it's shape when required. waterproof element was great for heavy downpours in the rain forests and water activities in the sea.

Comments:

I am very happy with my hat, having a holiday in Egypt planned I was looking for a sunhat to protect me and I have a fairly large head size so most hats look fairly silly on me. I am very pleased with my outback classic.
