A day on the water can bring everything from driving rain to glaring sun. With the SunShower Sombrero from Outdoor Research you’re prepared for any condition. Supplex® nylon provides UPF 30 protection while mesh side panels offer ventilation. The removable Ventia rain cover gives waterproof, breathable shelter when it rains and stows in its own pocket when the skies clear again.

Outstanding hat for sun and rain
July 21, 2011
Best fitting (XL actually is XL!) and lightest hat for the purposes that I have ever seen/worn. The basic hat is extremely well ventilated, and for rainy conditions includes a Pertex (waterproof/breathable) fabric cover which fits neatly over the hat and folds neatly into the brim when not needed. Good brim width, nice anti-reflective grey underbrim. I'm extremely happy with this one and recommend to anyone needing a single hat for all warmer weather conditions - wet or dry. I was especially surprised at how light this hat feels on the head, and how comfortable the fit.
Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
