Outdoor Research Snoqualmie Sombrero
Price Paid: n/a
I inherited this hat from my brother in law who sadly passed away last year. Not being an outdoor type I can't say how it performs for its designed purpose as a skier/snowboarder hat, but I can say that an a cold wet freezing Sunday morning when I am watching my 10 year old son playing soccer it is wonderful.
It keeps the rain off, the flaps keep my ears warm, and because of the design it doesn't obstruct my all round vision so I can wear it when driving the car.
First rate piece of kit.
