The legendary soggy climate of the Pacific Northwest prompted us to develop this hat for use in a wide assortment of activities. It's great for active wet-weather pursuits such as sea kayaking, backpacking in the rainforest, or swinging a polaski on a rainy trailwork project. The totally seam-sealed Gore-Tex fabric crown prevents entry of any external moisture while also minimizing the accumulation of perspiration. The Seattle Sombrero is so effective that it carries Gore's "Guaranteed To Keep You Dry" certification—not an easy test to pass. Many people find the hoods on their rain jackets to be uncomfortable, tough to hear through, and an impairment to vision. A Seattle Sombrero is a much more comfortable alternative

This is a sweet hat, for keeping the rain off your head, but i had to sell the hat, its uncomfortable to wear in summer months. The gore-tex makes the hat extremely hot and not breathable as they state, but the hats still pretty sweet.
