I was given this as a gift after having skin cancer removed from my face. I needed a good hat for sun protection. This hat was everything we had hoped for. It is much cooler than other hats I own including a wide-brimmed straw Panama hat, an Army 'Boonie' hat and a cotton floppy. It maintains its shape when traveling, cleans up easily and is a bit more stylish that my other options. I also like the drawstring that allows for adjustment to tighten it up in windy weather or loosen it up when the temperature is over 100. I wish I had saved my self the money on those other hats and purchased this one sooner.

Hat seems ok, but the size range is messed up - no smaller size available. By the time I pull the adjustment cord to make the hat fit a size 7 head, the whole back half of the hat is puckered up and looks ridiculous, and renders it useless for me.

    Please make 50/50 like multicam version!!!

    By 

    from US

    Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Helios Sun Hat - Khaki XL:

    I've got two Helios hats! The 50/50 multi cam hat is my favorite due to the materials used! It holds its shape better and looks better. The 86/14 regular helios is cooler in the heat - but it tends to poof up and look odd. Don't get me wrong - both are VERY good, durable hats. I've tried to wear them out. I just can't wear my favorite multicam hat everywhere.... I save that for true outdoor adventures. I want one just as perfect for everything else. For now my regular Helios works...but I know OR can do better!!

    Good so far

    By 

    from US

    Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Helios Sun Hat - Khaki XL:

    I chose this hat because it was packable and washable. I like the cord option for wind. It would be nice to have mesh for ventilation. I like the light blue color but see that it is not available any longer. Being winter, I haven't had much chance to wear it yet.

    outstanding product

    By 

    from CA

    Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Helios Sun Hat - Khaki XL:

    Purchased this hat over a decade ago for backcountry use. I have used it in deserts, heavy rainfall (dries fast), windy weather (draw cord is great for this), on glaciers and cascade mountain ascents for sun protection, traveled everywhere with it overseas. It folds nicely, lightweight, stitching has never come undone considering the heavy use. Retains it's shape when unpacked from extended storage. I live in eastern WA and jog with it as summers can average high 90's F. Great hat, it has never let me down.

    Although Chinese-made, this product is very well made. It is fully-adjustable, provides ample shade and is lightweight. I hope I never lose it.

      Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Helios Sun Hat - Khaki XL:

      This hat kept my shaved head from turning red on my 5 mile kayak trip today. I just bought it last week and this was the first use. So far, I'm a happy camper. The brim is a little stiffer than my old floppy hat, which i really appreciate. Good product.

      Durable, Light, Awesome

      By 

      from Maine/Traveling

      Pros

      • Durable
      • Easy to wash
      • Fits in Pocket
      • Light

      Cons

      • Odd Fit

      Best Uses

      • Sun protection anywhere

      Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Helios Sun Hat - Khaki XL:

      I have used this hat for years. Backpacking, hiking, canoeing, climbing, you name it. I don't really like hats so being able to keep this hat in my pocket is great, then when ever the sun comes out I just put this on and with a touch of sun screen on my nose I'm good to go. It packs down very small, you can easily fit it in a large pocket or stuff it in your pack. The shape doesn't stay perfect but I have been crumpling it for years with out a problem. Only complaint is that it tends to sit very lightly on my head and pop of in the wind if I don't tighten the draw cord, I have more hair than most folks so maybe that's the reason. The elastic draw cord helps but it still wont keep it on with out the draw cord.
