Designed for activities like hiking, backpacking,
kayaking or anything where you will be outside for an extended period of time, the Outdoor
Research Sombriolet Sun Hat is a great option for lightweight sun protection. Let’s take
a look at its features. This hat is constructed with a solar shield
material, so it is a very lightweight, polyester and nylon blend that is very tightly woven
to give it a UPF 50 rating. So that is going to provide ample sun protection from those
harmful UV rays for an extended period of time when you are outdoors. It is a really
lightweight material and doesn’t weigh you down at all. And it has got a nice foam stiffened
brim here to provide some structure to the brim of the hat, so you get head protection,
you get some face protection and also some neck protection as well. So ample solar protection
throughout the entire top side of your body. Some of the features on this hat include venting
on the crown. So all around the outside of the crown here we have got nice lightweight
vents built in, so that is going to provide ample breathability throughout the entire
top portion or, as I said, the crown of the hat, so nice bit of venting and breathability
there. We do have a chin cord with a cord lock and
that is going to help to keep it nice and tight in the event that the wind picks up.
It is not going to pull the hat off and blow it off your head. But in the event that you
don’t need this chin cord with the cord lock, it is com-pletely removable via these
two little tabs here on the sides. So nice additional feature with the chin cord there. On the inside of the hat we do have a nice,
lightweight transaction headband. So that is going to provide nice moisture wicking
and just additional comfort next to skin. And we also have a nice mesh crown in there.
So that is going to add to that breathability and re-ally enhance the air permeability of
those vents and of that fabric, so really nice additions with the breathability of the
hat here. On the back of the hat we also have a draw
cord closure. So that is going to help you to cinch it down around your head, you know,
again, if it is windy or if the weather is start-ing to get pretty harsh, you can ensure
a proper fit and a snug fit with that draw cord on the back of the hat. So additional
benefits with the Sombriolet hat there. So there you have it. It is the Outdoor Research
Sombriolet Sun Hat, a great option for any of those outdoor activities where sun protection
is necessary.

    Ps : India's temperature varies from 34°C/93°F to 42°C/108°F so in average India's weather is 38°C/100°F i.e India is quite HOT all the time. OR has a huge market in India so do open retail stores in India. ✌🏽

    Incredible hat! The mesh on the inside creates space between your head and top of the hat to help with heat. I have worn this in extremely hot climates. I wear it in and out of the water. Its hard to make super compact bc of the wire or tubing around the brim.
