A perennial award winner, the Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero is one of the most recognizable hats in the outdoors. With its durable, waterproof, breathable construction, it is sure to keep you dry in the worst of storms. Let’s take a look at all of its features.
This had is constructed with a 70D nylon face fabric and it has got a three layer Gore-Tex waterproof, breathable membrane. So it is a fully waterproof hat all throughout this foam brim and the nylon top here. So, as I just said, we have got a foam shaped brim here to give you some structure, so when it does rain the rain is just going to kind of hit and start to fall away, away from your face, away from your shoulders. You know, it is not going to leak down into the hood of your jacket or anything like that. You get some really good all around protection from the hat.
You know, there is a Velcro attachment here, so you can actually fold these sides up to give yourself some clearance when the weather clears and you need some extra ventilation and breathability. Those will just sit up really easily with the Velcro attachment there.
You do have this chin lock with this draw cord here. So you can actually pull that up nice and easily and get the hat nice and snug under the chin. So if it gets wet, windy, it is not going to fall away. You know, you are going to have really good protection that stays in place and you can actually remove that. It is actually just tied down on the sides here. So in the event that you don’t want this cord at all, you can untie it from these little loops here and take it away. So it is a really nice feature. You can use that as you want to. So you have got some really nice features in play all around on the hat.
On the inside of the hat we do have a nice cinch band. So you can actually make this hat tighter or more loose around your head if you choose to do so. And there is a really nice, lightweight and soft liner for wicking that moisture away and adding and enhancing the breathability of that Gore-Tex membrane. So there is some nice features in play on the inside of the hat as well as all around on the outside.
So there you have it. It is the Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero, a great lightweight piece for when your outdoor adventures call for great weather protection.
