Tested in some of the heartiest downpours the world has to offer, the “Sea Somb” is a rainy day classic. The shell offers waterproof protection and the brushed lining manages perspiration. The shaped brim directs water away from your head when it’s gushing.
Tested in some of the heartiest downpours the world has to offer, the Seattle Sombrero rain hat from Outdoor Research was a winner of Backpacker Magazine’s 2005 Editors’ Choice Gold Award.

It has a brushed tricot crown for comfort and moisture management, and an internal Cinch-Band adjustment. Other features include a 2-3/4-inch brim, foam-stiffened brim floats, color-matching hook/loop tabs on brim and dome, and removable chin cord with cord lock.
