"Tested from Sea to Summit"
"Thanks for a great hat. What great sun protection!
I will use it on sea and mountains."
"Here's a picture of the official hat of the UBAR Archeological Expedition. Despite the wind, it's still in place. Boy, am I glad I brought this hat. It's been absolutely invaluable in the high desert winds. When this picture was taken, we were hopelessly lost in the Rub Al Khali Desert. Even the Bedouin didn't know where we were. However, low-tech dead reckoning got us through and the lost city was found! Thanks to you and your staff."
"We wore our hats through India, Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Bali, Australia, and New Zealand, practically lived in them. We just wanted to say that these hats hold up well in severe, frequently filthy, damp, hot, cold, brutal conditions. Great hat!"

"These hats proved to be invaluable while in Africa. Equally adept at keeping the 110 degree sun off our faces while remaining breathable and cool. No matter how wet and squashed these hats get, they still hold their shape. It is the perfect outdoor hat."

"This hat has worked its way into my essential kayaking gear. I spend six months in the northern hemisphere and the other six in Chile each year as a full time paddler and kayaking ambassador. I've got to protect myself, and I like to do it in style. The Osprey travels tight and looks good no matter what I put it through, won't go anywhere without it."
