I love this hat! I have been doing a lot of hiking and this hat works great for that activity. I had been using the Charter Hat previously but was having problems storing the hat in my backpack when not in use and it hiting my backpack. This is where the Ultra Adventure Hat shines, it is super portable. The brim folds in half and the rest just folds onto itself. It easily fits in my backpack. Also the cap doesn't interfere with my back pack since it just hangs down. It is not at big as the Adventure Hat and gives less protection, however the protection is very good and I actually like the slightly smaller size as it is not a cumbersome. The other features I like are the sunglasses lock as it gives a very secure place to remove your sunglasses. They are really locked in there and don't move accidentally yet the come out easily when you want. The other feature I really like is less technical, but still important to many people, is the fabrics used. The outside of the hat is a water repellent fabric which is nice for light rain or mist. Inside the hat there is a wicking sweat liner that is connected to a wicking underbrim fabric. When you sweat the moisture moves from your forehead to the underside of the brim. This spreads it out over a large surface area to evaporate and the thing I love is the moisture stays on the underside, it never transfers to the top of the brim or the dome of the hat, thus the hat does not look ugly with sweat areas to others. I love how it stays looking nice. My only complaint is the sizing. I have the Charter Hat and the Sprinter Cap, both in Large, so I originally bought the Ultra Adventure Hat in Large also, however it was too big for me. Upon further review I have realized that the size ranges for this hat are different than other hats. I'm not sure why Sunday Afternoons doesn't have a consist sizing chart across all their hats. Overall, I really like this hat to protect my face and neck from the sun.
The seam on the visor where it folds is to heavy and dug into my forehead. I went back to my original adventurers hat
Fantastic hat, and I'm picky about my hats, everything I look for in a hat all in one. Great ventilation, great sun blocking ability, and very well made.
This has been a very satisfying purchase!! I previously bought the Adventure Hat and, while I found it excellent for sun shade, I use these hats mainly for hiking and the solid part of the Adventure Hat’s brim kept hitting my pack whenever I turned my head. It was also such a crinkly material that all I could hear while hiking was my hat! I ended up giving it away to a friend who loves walking (no pack). Enter the Ultra Adventure Hat - Ta Daaa!! I have worn this hat twice hiking now; once on a weekend and once for a week through hike and I love it. It does have a slightly shorter brim but gives excellent coverage. It vents really well. I wore it for a 30Km day of hiking in the sun along a diversion track and didn’t get sunburned on my face at all!! The material is a much softer kind and doesn’t make much noise at all. Finally I can enjoy the birdsong. :D Plus – I can turn my head now and the solid part of the brim doesn’t hit my pack!! So good. I love the peripheral vision caused by the solid part and love that the rear neck cover sits closer. The brim is also so wide that my fly net fitted over easily without bothering me at all. I don’t use the glasses holder because I have prescription glasses and wouldn’t take the chance of losing them in the bush but the fold line on the brim has been useful for packing it into smaller day bags for taking the kids to the park etc. Just an all-round excellent hat and I really love it. Thanks guys!
Living at 10,000'+, I know I should wear a sun hat when I'm out hiking or kayaking. But I HATE wearing hats. Until now. The Ultra Adventure Hat feels almost like I'm not wearing a hat at all. The brim doesn't make me feel like I'm under a tent. I read the entire Wirecutter review and must agree with their rating of this hat. The new design and features this hat offers make it a clear winner!
