This hat is made from the same moisture-wicking polyester/spandex blend that OR uses in its shirts. “I wore it on an unusually hot trip near Mt. Rainier, and the fabric mopped up a constant flood of sweat,” says one tester. “Fortunately, it dried quickly, so I didn’t feel like I was putting a wet dishrag back on.”

Testers also liked the shorter brim, which provides just enough coverage to protect eyes without obstructing peripheral vision. Downside: There’s no way to tighten the fit, so it easily blows off in strong wind. $29; 2.7 oz.;
