This is a fully waterproof and breathable wide brimmed rain hat that weighs about two ounces, what's not to like?

Outdoor Research says

Most durable lightweight storm protection with Diamond Fuse Technology all served in a packable waterproof full brim hat.

The durable lightweight superpowers of our Helium Rain collection, now offered in a full brim hat to ward off wet weather and abrasions. Completely seam-taped, waterproof, yet still breathable and comfortable in rugged conditions, the new Helium Rain Full Brim Hat will be the first thing any hiker, peak bagger, or off-trail adventurer will pack for the most durable lightweight rain protection. Learn more about Diamond Fuse durability right here.

Our Verdict

Outdoor Research's Helium Rain Full Brim Hat is amazing given its paltry weight. Its a well trodden design with taped seam crown, absorbent headband and adjustable chin cord. It feels like it won't suffer too much if squashed in a pocket either, though I've never used one that was undamagable in this regard.

I like a chin cord because I can lock my rucksack chest strap through it when its a windy day meaning it can't be blown away.

It's claimed the diamond ripstop reduces abrasion damage and you can see how it would.

It's a great product for ultralight fanatics.
