Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite camping/hiking hat! My wife bought this hat for me a few weeks ago for camping and hiking for a few reasons. 1st - it looks like Indiana Jones'! It is very comfortable with the ability to shape the brim how you need, especially as the sun changes direction throughout the day. It was pouring down rain when we were setting up our tent and it repelled the water very well for the amount of rain we had, kept my head dry and the hat dried out pretty quick as well. Material is very sturdy and of good quality. The sun can be brutal in Texas, and the had was a little warm when I wasn't walking around, such as sitting around the camp, so I was venting it a little here and there but I think I do that with all my hats. I receive many compliments when I wear this hat, I absolutely love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rough and Tumble... Was in Portland and didn't bring a hat to protect my skin cancer prone neck. For the price, it's a great hat... holds shape well, came looking beat-up, so I didn't try to protect it. Got out on rain and the sun (almost simultaneously, as is Portland), and it worked great. drawstring will hold it on my head, and the rain pours off. Back in MN, and on 80F days, it's a bit hot, but doesn't seem to show a sweat stain given it's dark color. Wearing on the North shore hiking was great, and just takes a couple minutes to bend it back into shape out of the rucksack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, style, fit and function I'm a vegetarian, and I don't buy leather hats. I needed a hat that provided good sun protection, comfort, style, and versatility, and I found it with this hat. I retired my previous favorite felt hat because this one fit better, feels better, and is more versatile. The cinch cord works great for wind and running, plus you can push the cord cinch down and put the hat on your back when you don't feel like wearing it. All in all, the best hat I've ever owned!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better for Cold than Warm. I used this hat for a climb up South Sister in Oregon. The hike was hard work. At the lower elevations where the temps were warmer the hat was a bit hot because there isn't a lot of ventilation. As the altitude increased the temperature dropped and the hat was quite handy for keeping the sun off, and in higher winds where the wind could have blown it off. It's also quite good for rain as it is water resistant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAV HAT EVER I LOVE this hat. I am a small woman and the med fits me great. The quality and style are perfect. You can move the brim around to shape it exactly how you like it and it will stay. I gave it more of a cowboy hat kind of look. The color and texture are awesome! The only thing they did wrong on this hat is the little brackets around the hat (which i love the look of) catch your hair. I am going to have a seamstress put some sort of lining over those because I love the hat that much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome hat! I just got this hat last week. Already it's kept me warm, kept the sun off, and seems to have some sort of forcefield to keep the rain away. The brim has a wire in it so you can shape it however you want. I guess that the down side to that is that if you toss it in a corner you need to re-shape it. But this really is a great hat that I can see wearing for many years to come. And I've already gotten a lot of compliments on how nice it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this hat! Looks like leather but it's not. Brim can be shaped, has chin strap to keep it on in high winds and keeps sun and rain off! I have had it for two years and periodically apply mink oil to help with the waterproofing, never have had a wet head! Keeps snow off (I wear glasses so hiking with snow falling in, on and around my glasses is annoying) and because it's some kind of cotton/canvas it's fine in the summer months! I love this hat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hat for Camping I originally ordered the X-Large size based on the dimensions given online. The x-large hat was a bit too grand, but I was able to easily exchange it at my local REI for a Large size, just one day before heading out for a weekend camping trip. The hat functioned perfectly: shielding me from the sun during the day, and protecting me from an unexpected rain storm the last morning while breaking down camp. The hat appears to be well made, and I plan to getting many years of use out of it.

I just bought a Dorfman Pacific Outback hat (RN#31905).  What needs to be done to get the most mileage out of it?

Asked by: balloonchaser
We would highly recommend using a water repellent spray such as the Tectron Gear Spray. The spray is formulated to give maximum water, soil and grease repellency to clothing as well protecting the hat from fading and UV degradation caused by the sun.
