        Comments about Outdoor Research Helios Sun Hat:

        I bought this hat to replace one I lost on my last trip. I loved that hat: comfortable, fit well on my huge head, washed well, kept me cool. But when this hat arrived in the color sand, the OR logo was in a darker color and so big and obvious, I just couldn't keep it. I returned it, for another OR hat with a far more subtle logo.

                  Comments about Outdoor Research Helios Sun Hat:

                  Ordered 4 hats (2 adult sized and two child size). Nice that it has an adjustabale drawstring so it should fit your head appropriately. At first it was too big and I was ready to return (*but didn't b/c I like OR quality). Then my wife showed me the string. It's also cool that you can inverse the drawstring and put it on top of your head which will pull up the sides and not have to worry about velcro not holding (like I saw others comment on a different style of OR hat - glad I went with this one).

                        Used in urban and hiking outings. Although it does not have vents, it does not feel hot and can be worn for hours, hardly noticing it. Saved me having to put greasy smelly sunscreen on face and back of neck, brim is wide and protective. Chin strap great in wind. When no wind, chin strap over top gives that cool "Aussie" look.

                            A:

                            The main difference between the Helios hat and the Transit hat is that the transit hat is made of Cotton and the Helios is a polyester and nylon hat, which makes it a quick drying hat as well.
