User Review: The North Face HyVent Hiker Hat
Price Paid: $30
Bought this hat for field work and it performed great. I was worried about the fleece head band lining around the inside keeping me a little warm but it soaks up sweat and helps.
As far as rain protection, I noticed that it works well for a little while but after long periods in the rain, the hat appears to get soaked with rain and the brim beings to sag and drip water onto your face/collar.
The hat is durable though. I just pulled it out of the closet to do this review and it looks close to the first day I bought it. Sun protection is good. I never noticed a sunburn while wearing the hat.
