Editors' Choice Award
The highest performing and most versatile in our fleet, the Ultra Adventure takes our Editors' Choice Award.
Top Pick Award
A great choice for boating, the Sombriolet has decent protection from the sun and good wind performance.
Best Buy Award
What it lacks in the style department, it makes up for in protection. It is versatile and wins our Best Buy Award.
This dorky looking hat has great sun coverage and we'd recommend it for any activity.
We found the Oasis somewhat uncomfortable and discovered it has no ventilation.
If you're looking for a technical model, this is not the one; wear this while walking the dog or lounging at the beach.
With a lifetime warranty, you're in the club for life with this durable hat.
Lightweight, small and packable, the Sun Bucket is durable but provides less sun protection than others.
This is not our favorite product from Outdoor Research
The Connor Hats Airflow did not perform well, and we would choose the Tilley LTM6 Airflo in a heartbeat.
The Bora Bora is one-size-fits-all, and will stretch out after light use. It does offer decent ventilation and is comfortable.
