So comfy, and tougher than it looks

By

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Papyrus Brim Hat - Khaki XL:

I have really enjoyed wearing this hat for the last month of the Colorado summer. It keeps my head cool, and my small children have not managed to destroy itラthe material is substantially tougher than it feels! I'm pretty confident I'll get at least two more great years out of this one.

One nitpick, as others have mentioned: the brim feels lumpy and gets a bit oddly shaped. I'd love a wire brim in this one to up its wind resistance (which is already pretty good) and shape retention.

Works great! But warps...

By 

from US

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Papyrus Brim Hat - Khaki XL:

I do landscape maintenance and got this hat to use primarily while working. The materials look great, and the hat keeps me cool. Works really well and feels like it will last a long time. You can really feel that air move through it and cool you off. I like how light it is too, and that it comes with a drawstring. With a hat like this you want it to be shaped like it is in the picture. That traditional forward bend in the front and back, or else stay flat. The thing I don't like about this hat is it looks as if there is a bit more material of the papyrus than the liner under the brim, so when you go outside and it heats up, the papyrus expands further and causes the brim to warp all kinds of weird ways. Ends up looking wavy all over the brim like a big women's sun hat. Really bothers me and looks funny for this style of hat. Perhaps a wire brim could help it maintain shape, or simply a stiffer liner, material, or better manufacturing so the amount of material on top and bottom is closer to being the same. I gave it four stars because it works well and seems to be made to last, and some people may not be as concerned with the shape as I am. Be aware that if you want it to look like it does in the picture, it probably won't. I like the one I've got, but wouldn't buy another unless this is fixed.

Great Protection, Too Hot

By 

from US

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Papyrus Brim Hat - Khaki XL:

I love many things about this hat, which I purchased at REI: the style, the natural fabric, it is packable and crushable, and its outstanding protection from the sun. I recently wore it in the scorching and humid Middle East and I probably could've gone without sunblock on my face and neck (although I wouldn't). My one serious complaint is its lack of breathability. The instant it was off, my head was cooler, even in 95 degree direct sun. The Supplex panel in the crown is largely responsible, and I would prefer the hat without it. I have the Khaki and the new White color looks to have a wider weave that might be cooler. So: great for sun protection, but not in high heat conditions.

Durable, breathable, excellent protection

By 

from CA

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Papyrus Brim Hat - Khaki XL:

I have had this hat for about 5 years (If not this exact model, a very similar one by outdoor research). I do lawn care and landscaping for a career, and coach track and field and fish for hobbies. I need excellent protection from the sun and I beat up my hats and gear, this hat had been through the gauntlet and back and has been fantastic. Lightweight and breathable, doesn't hold sweat all day. I spray it with a water hose at the end of the day to clean it and it's been around for this long. About to buy a second one only because I stretched out the hat band.

This by far is the best hat I have ever owned

By 

from US

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Papyrus Brim Hat - Khaki XL:

I don't know why the previous reviewer said this hat would not hold up under water and weather. I have sailed singlehanded to Hawaii with this hat, on through gales and squalls, sat on it while wet, worked with it on for over a year,squished it into sea bags, and just beat the heck out of it. It remains cool, comfortable, and completely intact (Well, ok, the shape is a bit different that it was when I bought it). I cannot say enough about how impressed I am with it.

1 year of rough and tumble field use, still kicking

By 

from US

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Papyrus Brim Hat - Khaki XL:

I purchased this hat over a year ago as a wilderness therapy guide. It's still kicking as my main field hat, well-seasoned with screen and sweat. The flexibility of the brim on the backside doesn't impede or irritate me while hauling my backpack. The underlining is impermeable enough to allow me to wear it through all but solid downpours (it's a good indicator of how long I've bee tromping around when it begins to leak through). If it gets warped from stuffing in my bag, a quick strap up on the sides gets it back in shape in no time.

All around excellent sunhat.

great but not durable

By

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Papyrus Brim Hat - Khaki XL:

Loved the hat but it is not really made for lasting if worn in the elements. If it will be kept dry it is nice and cool but rain, river or ocean will take its toll.

Cons

  • Brim

Best Uses

  • Hiking

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Papyrus Brim Hat - Khaki XL:

This hat would rate five stars if the brim were a little stiffer. As it is, on windy days it tends to flip up, even though the brim is lined on the bottom. Other than that, it is a perfect sun hat for outdoor activities. The 360 degree venting allows heat to escape no matter which way the wind is blowing. The bottom of the top of the hat is also lined to protect the top of the head. It packs down to practically nothing in a suitcase, but pops right back into shape when you take it out. The brim is wide enough to provide shade for most of the head and neck, and always stays flat and stylish. Another great hat by Outdoor Research.
