This hat runs very small. The magnetic clips are not very effective at holding the flaps up, and when the flaps are up the hat looks very odd. Mine is getting sent back.


nice but
February 25, 2010

It is light,warm,windproof and micro ripstop but the draw cord should be on the side the cord ball,tab uncomfortable when you lay head back on something and brim kinda small but it folds up with is nice..

A good cap, but questionably better as the previous model
November 04, 2009

The visor does not shade as effectively as the forerunner model and the entire cap seems a bit heavier. Also the visor has torn in the corner of my cap, so I now prefer to wear last year's model.

Does the job
November 09, 2010

I live in northern Il. where it gets windy and cold, so far this hat has done its job, it stays down over the ears and doesn't creep up and keeps the wind and rain out,not a chick magnet but does the job !

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

An excellent all around cap.
April 09, 2009

This cap provides good protection from cold and wind , as well as wet weather and shields the face adequately from glaring sun. Above all, the ears are well covered from cold and wind if the right size is chosen.

Runs Very Small
November 10, 2011

I returned the L for the XL and it's STILL too small. Unfortunately it's going back, again. I have another OR hat (Radar Pocket Cap) in L that fits perfect. I'm L for most hats and helmets. Too bad because the cap is nice.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: runs small

Hats with more value than the price
September 22, 2013

If you are looking for a great hat, and windproof, water repellent, quick drying, warm and good storage convenience hat., it must be that the top hat. If the weather is sunny you feel hot, as long as the edge of the hat turned up immediately, you can feel fresh ears of many. The only drawback, this hat is not completely waterproof, but drizzle can still prevent your head wet. Overall, still very convenient.

Pros: Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: not completely waterproof

Great Multi-Purpose Cap
January 11, 2011

If you're looking for a great, lightweight and warm multi-purpose cap, this is definitely one to consider. The lightweight material and folding bill make it very packable or easy to stuff into a pocket when not needed. The thin lining, with the wind protection of the shell provides, just the right amount of warmth for my ears and head all the way to subzero (-5 to -10 F) temps with light winds. Only complaints are tags hanging out the back like flags when the flap is folded up, and the available sizes of the hat. Printed labels (tag-less) on the interior would save from having to cut the tags off and solve the waving of the flags. My hat size typically runs 61-62cm and the largest offered size was XL (61cm) so it’s a little snug. It’s almost too snug but at least I don’t have to worry about the wind blowing it off. Summary, definitely would buy again if it were available in a XXL.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

warm, soft and dry
January 04, 2010

Good hat. Soft fleece inside with waterproof exterior. A little lighter than I expected though. I was looking for a warm hat to wear with my foulies sailing.
