I did a lot of online research looking for a good comfortable lightweight hat to protect me from the sun in Washington DC over a weekend (of course, it then poured) and over an Ingress weekend of walking around Boston for 6 hours (it did not pour).
BEST. HAT. EVER.
Okay sure, fine, I looked like a dork. It's got that flap down the back and the huge brim and my husband took one look and said I looked like was wearing a baby bonnet. DO NOT LET THIS DETER YOU.
This thing is light as a feather. You don't feel like you are wearing a hat. If you wear glasses, the brim never gets in the way of the glasses. This was huge! The mesh on top of the hat kept my head cool. I didn't get sunburned. I wore it in the rain and my glasses stayed dry, it kept it's shape, and was ready to go the next day. This was the most amazing hat I've ever worn.
Sadly, yes you will have hat hair afterwards.
Do not let that deter you from this hat. This is the hat every other hat wishes it could be.
I go for a 5-mile walk every day, and for the past few years have worn a sun hat that was designed for people who fish and spend the day out in the sun and reflected rays. It was a great hat, but after all the use and repeated washings, it started to fall apart and needed replacement. When I went back to the manufacturer, I found out, sadly, that they no longer make that hat.
I talked to people in the parks that I walk in to ask what sun hats they like, and I searched the web and read a lot of reviews and opinions. I thought I found what was probably the best hat when I came across this Sunday Afternoons Ultra-Adventure hat. Not wanting to spend a whole lot of time making a hat decision, I decided to just go ahead and try this one.
As far as sun protection goes, it's way better than the hat that it replaces, as the brim on this had also does a better job of shading the sides of your face. The vents are a nice touch and help keep your head cool, or as cool as it can be when it's 95-degrees and you're out walking in the sun.
If it's breezy, the neck flap can lift up, but I don't find it to be a problem really. It may lift up, but then falls back down.
When I first started wearing this on my daily walks, I though I must look pretty dorky, but being a dork is better than having skin cancer, right? When I passed people and said good morning or good afternoon, most of them smiled and returned the greeting, but I wasn't sure if they were smiling at me or trying not to laugh at my dorkness. Well, lo and behold....it was only about a week later that as I was taking my daily walk I started coming across other people wearing this very same Sunday Afternoons Ultra-adventure hat.
Who would have imagined that not only would I ever be a fashion trendsetter, but that I'd have my own cult following of hat stalkers?
The bottom line: I love this hat. It's comfortable, it does it's job, it folds flat for packing and I would not hesitate for a second to buy another one if anything happened to this.
Thank you Sunday Afternoons.
The material is super lightweight, water resistant for a little while, but if you dunk it, it gets wet. I fold it up and cram it in my pack and the only thing is I have to straighten out the brim a little bit. I take this thing rafting, hiking, outdoor events that last all day (formula d), camping, and anything else that you would think you'd get thirsty outdoors.
The neck bit could be about three inches longer, and the brim a magical material that's more anti bend from cramming into packs. I hope this hat never wears out or I lose it.
