If you’re looking for maximum sun protection, our full sun-sombrero hat will be your go-to choice for headwear. The fabric is also made with the same tough, super-lightweight rip-stop nylon. Mesh panels are built into the front and back for optimal air flow. A closed cell-foam brim will keep the hat afloat should it fall into the drink, and it will maintain its shape over time. A safari cape offers full rear-neck protection; and when it’s not in use, the cape can be tucked back into the hat sleeve and hidden from view. Finally, a drawcord will keep the hat snug for those windy afternoons.
Reason For Being: A hardy sun hat designed to keep you out of the sun and elements. Comes with adjustable chin strap and cord-lock for different sized heads.
Fabric: Majority 2-ply Rip Stop nylon for durability. Mesh on sides for ventilation.
Brim: 4-inch brim made from close-cell foam, giving durability, making the hat float, and keeping out the sun.
UV Protection: Rip-stop nylon carries a sun protection rating of UPF 50+. Includes an additional fold-down cape to protect the sensitive areas at the back of the neck. Mesh vents offer UPF 30+ rating.
I love the Sun Sombrero. It fits very well and can be snugged up in the wind. The neck cover tucks away unnoticed when not in use. Water repels off nicely. Very protective and comfortable.

Almost the perfect hat for me wide brim adjustable fit sun shade that tucks away in the back light weight and properly vented for my hot head. The only negative is how the brim flops back when in wind. I ride my bike around town a cruiser so I'm not really a speed demon but in a mild wind the front brim always pops up. If the brim were a bit stiffer I'd give this a 5 star rating.

Being fair skinned I get sunburned frequently and do everything I can to hide from the sun. I own many similar hats but RR's is my go to. Fits great (and stretches enough to be worn over a beanie on cool mornings) chis strap available for when it gets windy (I just tuck it in the hat when it's not) wicks sweat and does a fair job of repelling rain.
