    I bought this hat to replace one that I use primarily for hiking. I'm very pleased with the workmanship and performance so far.

    Comments about Outdoor Research Swift Cap:

    This is my 4th one so you know I love it despite the bad design. I lost my first one, but the last two were rendered useless when the non-replaceable plastic strap adjuster broke in the same place (where strap wraps around it). The plastic is too flimsy and breaks easily. They could at least make it replaceable...

      This is a great hat, but the blue colored one is a deer fly magnet!!! Go for any other color and you will be ok.

          Comments about Outdoor Research Swift Cap:

          I am a hat and beanie guy when I'm on the trail and, for me, the Swift Cap is the BEST I've ever owned.

          Low profile, light weight, comofortable and, as one who sweats a lot, it cleans up with nothing more than a rinsing.

          This isn't a baseball cap. It's a technical hat made to serve a purpose. It definitely does that and looks good in the process.

          If you're thinking about it I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger on this one.

            The hats and helmets I order are medium and they fit well. I bought two of these, and I have them almost as tight as they will go to fit my head. If you have a small head, don't buy this.

                  Best Uses

                    Comments about Outdoor Research Swift Cap:

                    I wore out my last Swift hat after years of constant use, and I liked it so much that I bought two for myself and one each for my wife and two school-age sons.

                    I wear it hiking/camping, at the pool, on the water, around town and the house, etc. I used to wear a hat only sometimes, but I like this hat so much, I wear it almost daily.

                    The hat is comfortable and light. In hot weather it breathes like a champ. I've worn it from the 100s to as cold as the upper 20s, and it's great. (It's not warm, but breathes well when you're breaking a sweat in the cold.)

                    The nylon front panel does a great job of stopping wind and rain. Though it's not waterproof, water does bead on it, and it's my rain hat of choice when it's too warm and humid for my Seattle Sombrero. Yes, my head eventually gets wet, but much less than I would've thought considering the time (hours) and amount of rain. It dries quickly too.

                    It adjust easily, so it can fit an adult or a school-age child.

                    My only complaint is that my last khaki hat developed sweat stains after a hot summer, and I couldn't get the stains out. I don't know yet if the other colors stain. But that's a quibble, since my traditional baseball caps get stained too eventually.

                    Bottom line: it the best baseball-style cap made for active people.
