I didn't test it so I'm not certain it's waterproof (only reason I deducted a star). I must have been out of my mind when I ordered it. I was really looking for a sun hat and this is much too thick, too heat retaining for that purpose. It's well made and I suspect it would be perfect for it's intended purpose.

I haven't had a chance to wear this in the rain yet, but it seems to be just what I was looking for. It's adjustable, and the brim is big enough to keep the rain off my glasses and back neck when my hands are too full for an umbrella.

The brim of his hat makes a lot of noise when touched. Would be too noisy for me in the wind, or brushing against a tree branch or a pack. It seems to be a problem of the brim lining. I have other OR hats and love them: good adjustable sizing, some waterproof, some with good chin straps, all nice colors and well made. This XL fit true to size on my 7 5/8 head. I agree with other reviewer, that a waterproof hat with a brim as large as this would be flapping in the wind which usually accompanies rain. If the brim flaps, it squeaks. If I hold it in place, it squeaks.
I will look at STP for another OR hat with smaller brim (which I have but want another color).

Only used once so far, but it did work very well. Construction quality seems to be very good. I expect it to last a long time. XL is true to size. Like every other OR product I've used, I can recommend it without reservations.
