Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero

$59.95 $54.95

Seattle Sombrero™ The legendary soggy climate of the Pacific Northwest prompted us to develop this hat for use in a wide assortment of activities. It’s great for active wet-weather pursuits such as sea kayaking, backpacking in the rainforest, or swinging a polaski on a rainy trailwork project. The totally seam-sealed Gore-Tex fabric crown prevents entry of any external moisture while also minimizing the accumulation of perspiration. The Seattle Sombrero is so effective that it carries Gore’s “Guaranteed To Keep You Dry” certification—not an easy test to pass. Many people find the hoods on their rain jackets to be uncomfortable, tough to hear through, and an impairment to vision. A Seattle Sombrero is a much more comfortable alternative.

  • Taslan Gore-Tex dome, fully taped
  • Sombrero is waterproof, windproof, and vapor permeable Comfortable, contoured fit in the windiest weather; little space between head and crown of the hat.
  • “Guaranteed To Keep You Dry”® certification
  • Not only does this hat pass all of our quality standards, but it also passes W.L. Gore’s tough rain room test.
  • Cinch-Band internal adjustment system (patent # 4,845,782)
  • Easy sizing of the internal headband to accommodate a Moonlite Pile Liner or to simply tighten the fit to keep the hat on in the wind.
  • Allows the outer shell to be held away from the head a bit, maintaining air flow and therefore greater comfort and vapor exhaust through the Gore-Tex membrane.
  • 1-inch wide elastic in headband
  • A two-inch length of elastic in the Cinch-Band increases comfort at the band by stretching a small distance.
  • Foam-stiffened brim
  • In addition to the obvious structure benefits of foam in the brim, it also allows this hat to float if blown overboard.
  • Velcro tabs on crown and brim
  • Brim can be velcroed up on one side of crown or both when greater visibility, ventilation, or style is needed.
  • WickLine™ lining
  • Spreads perspiration rapidly over its surface to aid in more rapid exhaust of vapor through the Gore-Tex crown.
  • Very comfortable material to have next to the skin. Feels dry even when wet.
  • Protects the Gore-Tex membrane and seam tape
  • Removable drawcord under chin
  • When it’s windy the chin cord keeps the hat from flying overboard. For less intense situations, it can easily be untied from the loops above the ears.
  • Long enough so the hat can be dropped down onto the upper back.
  • Longer brim in back than in front
  • Keeps water from running down your neck; yet, not so long that it gets in the way of a backpack.
  • When the sun comes out the neck is protected from being burned.
  • Weight: Large, 4 oz. / 113 g
