I have a large head, and have a hard time finding comfortable headwear for hiking. This hat fits perfect. Too early to comment on quality and durability, but I have had consistently good experience with OR and am anticipating total satisfaction.

Perfect travel hat
The Helios Sun Hat is not for your fancy city tours of course, but for out in the sun having fun it does the job really well for keeping your cool on those warmer days. And the fact that it is so easy to crush down and stuff into your pack makes it an easy choice, I recommend it.

Great sun hat helps keep you cool no matter how hot the sun is and the adjustable strap really keeps it in place I wear it everyday and would not know what to do with out it

Great sun hat
Great lightweight hat. Adjustable via pull cord for the perfect fit. Provides good coverage of face and neck. Couldn't ask for anything more. Looking forward to using this in South America this summer.

I finally had a real opportunity to try my new OR Helios hat in a 4 day trip to the desert. It is definitely one of the best hats I owned. It is lightweight, comfortable and protective. The brim has just the right size to fully protect you from the sun without interrupting the views. The attached chin cord kept it on head in windy days. I easily recommend it to anyone looking for protection when the sun beat down.
