A:I do opt hats to hoods, although I’m not surely why. Partially, I hardly don’t recall hoods oeuvre all that good. They e’er look a scuffle somehow, block the sight when you number your header, or another nettlesome matter ilk that. They suffer their advantages naturally, including A) they workplace advantageously with helmets, B) their cervix reporting, fashioning them more weatherproof (specially windproof), and C) the fact they’re e’er connected.
Really, one of my selfsame front-runner hats is Outside Explore’s Seattle Sombrero ($56). It’s a Gore-Tex, seam-sealed hat with stylin’ adjustable lip. Unless the hint is genuinely blowing the rainfall obliquely, it does a bang-up job holding the pelting off your brain, cervix, and shoulders. It’s too spark and stowable. The Marmot Precip Campaign Hat ($29) is truly lots the like matter, although it’s a petty flatboat and uses a non-Gore-Tex laminate. Thither’s perfectly nada improper with the Campaign Hat?it’s an fantabulous buy?but I hardly recall the Seattle Sombrero performs punter in near all weather.
Apropos, I’m genuinely a fan of Outside Inquiry’s Hat For All Seasons ($48), a short-brimmed Gore-Tex hat with a obliterable piling lining and ear muffs. It’s the all-important hat for coldness weather. I wore one up Denali when I climbed it around days binding, and I essentially ne’er took it off. Big for Rainier, wintertime cross-country skiing, all sorts of things.
Does the shrub combust bright therein suit?
The Seattle Sombrero is usable from REI hither.
