Hats, hats, hats… Product News


Hats, hats, hats… Outdoor Research has a style to suit everyone and every outdoor activity, which one would be your choice?

Everyone has a personal choice of hat for their outdoor sports, not everyone will suit a particular style or the sport you do may dictate the style you use. Outdoor Research has all this covered and can offer hats in all styles to protect you from all the weather we get in the classic British summer and beyond!

If you like a traditional broad brim to protect you from the sun then the Helios Sun Hat £32 for men and the Solar Roller Sun Hat £32 for women are the go to choice. They both offer a UPF of 50+ protection and use water resistant, breathable and quick drying fabrics and can shelter you from the odd shower. More thought goes into these best-selling designs than you think, the dark fabric under the brim reduces glare and the foam in the brim means that it floats rather than sinks if you drop it into a river. If you like a slimmer style but still with some all-round protection, then the Sun Bucket £27 is for you.

If you are looking for an athletic style then you can't go wrong with the Swift Cap £23, it comes in a wide range of colours and you can use for almost every outdoor application. The Swift offers water resistant, breathable and fast drying fabrics and a UPF of 50+. Keep an eye out for the limited editions of the Swift Cap each season! For full sun protection then the Sun Runner Cap £32 with its removable ear and back of neck protection is the best choice.

For the vintage look then the Advocate Trucker Cap £27 is as practical as it is good looking and comes in a range of colours that refresh every season.

If you are after simplicity then the cadet styling of the another best seller, the Radar Pocket Cap £23, features the often copied folding brim which allows you to easily stuff it away in a pocket when not in use. Yet again it offers water resistant, breathable and fast drying fabrics and a UPF of 50+.

Finally, for those days when it's just chucking it down but you still want to go out, the legendary Seattle Somberero £50 is the one you want to select. Full waterproof protection comes from the Gore Tex 3 layer fabric and fully taped seams and if the sun comes out it will still do a job as it still has UPF 50+ protection. On a rainy day you are definitely more in tune with and aware of your environment wearing a brimmed hat than stuffed away inside the hood of your jacket!

There are a lot more options that Outdoor Research can offer you and they all come with the outstanding Outdoor Research Infinite Warranty, check out the website to find your next hat here www.outdoorresearch.com

”...which one would be your choice?”

None. However, the people I suggest may be interested in said hats, in the order they appear in the article, would be as follows:

1) That bloke off telly who catches big scary fish.

2) Alan Partridge, whilst jogging.

3) Joe Exotic.

4) Jeremy Corbyn.

5) My nan, in her garden, on a sunny day, when she was still alive; god rest her soul.
