      Comments about Outdoor Research Swift Cap:

      Swift Indeed! Despite the fact that I run very hot, I was actually able to tolerate this hat in warm weather. I found it very useful this past late September. I was kayaking on Raquette Lake in the Adirondacks. It was somewhat cool and drizzly. This hat did a remarkable job keeping the spray and drizzle out of my face, and I did not overheat despite the fact that I was doing some reasonably strong paddling. I just bought this as a Christmas gift for my brother, and picked up a back-up for myself in the process. Looking forward to years of use out of this baby.

          Comments about Outdoor Research Swift Cap:

          I bought this swift cap again for my husband after he lost his favorite cap. I had to replace this cap when he first lost it on the road, but that replacement wasn't breathable, heavy and the fit wasn't right. Now I bought 2 swift caps at once in case he lost his cap again. That said how he likes this one better than all the other brands I have bought him through the years. Thank you Outdoor Research. The delivery was fast and smooth. Thanks, Sunnysports.

            Great warm weather hiking cap. Keeps the sun out of your eyes, and well ventilated for keeping the sweat to a minimum. I bought several hats for a recent backpacking trip, and treated them to make them water repellent so that they can also be worn under a hooded jacket to keep rain out of your face. The hat is made of quality materials, and folds up small for travel.

                Comments about Outdoor Research Swift Cap:

                This is a lightweight, highly breathable, comfortable to the point of feeling non existent cap. Low profile style, no excess room up top (coming from a shaved head)so factor that in if you need room for your afro. The back closure is effective and simple allowing you to conceal excess into a slotted hole. Sun protection without smothering your noggin. This is a whole new world coming from a long line of heavier weighted hats and I don't think I'll be looking back(except for winter, of course.)The style is clean, craftmanship is excellent and you can tell by the photo if you like how it looks. Not a fan of logos but I'll put up with the simple OR, and enjoy this hat. Can't speak for long term durability as of yet, because mine's fairly new.

                Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                CHUN YUN C  Nice design, well ventilated.
                Shopper  I have a bigger head, and was curious how big of a head this hat can accommodate with the adjustable strap?
                ROBIN P  my husband just tried it on his head and it fits him nicely. it adjusts in the back very generously. he said he wants to claim it for himself, now. it does not fit over his ears though. this hat is very durable and i wore it every day hiking in the cascades. it is waterproof and breathable. i love it.
