Outdoor Research Women’s Oasis Sombrero


This hat keeps you cool under intense summer sunlight. The expansive brim provides shade for relief from hot rays and a wicking headband keeps perspiration in check.

    This is a terrific hat: this model has a broad enough brim to provide real coverage from the sun but not so huge it blows off. The neck cord can be cinched to keep the hat on when it’s windy, or tucked out of sight, and it’s even washable (though I haven’t had to do so yet). I’ve got this hat in two colors, and the smallest size actually fits my very small head, and the crown has an adjustable toggle for tightening it if necessary. The color range is flattering, the darker underside helps prevent glare from the sun, and these hats are light and flatten completely for packing, yet the brim is stiff enough not to flop down around your face like most packable hats. It looks equally good with jeans or a dress, which is very useful for travel. What more could anyone want in a sun hat?! I just hope the company keeps making these!

    I bought this product for a trip to Scandinavia (lots of sun there in the summer). Overall, it’s a great product that is useful in both the heat and the cold against the sun.

    Pros:
    – Wide brim
    – Good chin & head adjustments. We rode bikes in the wind, but the hat stayed firmly on after I adjusted the cap on top.
    – Light-weight, easily folded (great for travel)

    Cons:
    – In 90F+/30C+, it does get a bit sweaty on the forehead due to lack of ventilation.

    I bought this hat because it was the least dorky looking boonie hat I could find 🙂 I love the color–such a nice change from khaki/sand/stone color of most hats of this style. The crown has a nice shape that makes it fit well–clearly designed for a woman’s head. The hat is very good quality
