Watertight™ Ball Cap is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Online Purchase Risk While typically my online experience with Columbia has been limited to purchasing of caps as well as very positive... hitherto. HOWEVER, these caps represent the risk with online buying. The material appears to be plastic and functions like plastic: NO venting, NO heat dispensation (hot as h*ll), NO moisture absorption nor wicker effect. If I could have seen the real product as oppose to online photo, I would recognize the product quality and potential functional problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat for the rain I love the fit and it works great for the rain. Be aware that this is just like umbrella material so it looks a little weird if you wear it on sunny days. Lol.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hasn't been rained on yet... The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because it hasn't been rained on yet. I still don't know if it will measure up to it's billing. That said, I bought the hat for my wife. She been wanting a black cap a for some time. The ostensible waterproofness was just a bonus. Finding this hat on Columbia's website, she told me she'd like it. We just spent a week in D.C., not exactly the great outdoors. The heat index, however, was up around 115 (And that's no typo) every day; and everyday, we walked to our various destinations, one day clocking 37,000 steps. She wore the hat every one of those steps and every day we were there. Suffice it to say she loves it. Now if it'll only rain...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Water Cap I bought this cap thinking it would be similar to the water wicking shirts that we all love from Columbia. When I received it, the bill of the cap was as expected but the rest of it was covered in something more like a rain jacket. So the function of a watertight ball cap was there, but the look of a slick cap was not as it looked like a rain jacket on your head. Fit was great however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed hat He will designed hat for the downpours that happened in Florida from time to time. I wear a 7 1/2 ball cap and it fits fine. The Velcro in the back is strong. I keep this hat and a rain coat that fonts into its own pocket in a bag when I visit Disney World.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs perfectly We ordered this for my husband. He works outdoors and we're in Florida where rain showers can be frequent. His work doesn't stop just because it's raining, so it's essential that he is geared up to stay dry head to toe! He has done this work for years and so we have had to become "experts" at finding outerwear that's not only waterproof, but durable and comfortable. He loved the waterproof jacket and pants he received, but this ball cap was his absolute favorite. In fact, it works so well that he had me order another right away! Thanks Columbia, you scored a home run with this ball cap!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice at Great hat to wear. Feels good and looks good. Only dislike is it’s not very breathable, but that comes with being water proof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from waterproof This hat is perfect for hiking. It doesn't feel hot, and is very light. The rain just beads off of it. I only wear this or my Columbia visor now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional But Not Much Else Functional but not very cute. I don't feel like it would have been hard to make it a little more fashionable. Also the velcro gets stuck in my hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Hat! I have had this hat for a good while it fits great! I have a large head lol (7.750") is my hat size. Also it seems to breath well for a water proof hat. Price is the same as a hat that would be cotton. Its has a great design and low profile works well for the Cold Rain and Snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to its name I wore this xc skiing when it rained/snowed all day. My head stayed dry, and the brim kept most of the moisture off my glasses. I adjusted the velcro strap at the back to keep it snug and in place.This cap will be in my backpack every time I hike or ski. I like it so much I ordered a second one for my husband.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable & Totally Dry This is the first waterproof hat that performs as advertised without trapping the heat. It is very comfortable and has plenty if adjustment for the right size. It serves me very well here in the Pacific Northwest particularly through our record winter rainfall this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% Waterproof This is why I purchased this hat and it does the trick. Lightweight and feels good. I have a few others bu this is my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My "Go-To" Hat This is my favorite hat! I wear it year round in Oregon and it's seen it's fair share of wet, dry, cold, snowy and blistery hot weather. I'm a runner and wouldn't put anything else on my head for my short or long runs. Keeping my fingers crossed that they never stop making this hat!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Velcro digs into scalp Take a close look at the Velcro adjustment strap at the back of the cap. Note the rough hook side points towards the scalp. This is the opposite of what it should be for comfort. The fit is snug for great weather protection but it also means the Velcro really digs in. If you need a wider adjustment on the strap there will be even more irritating Velcro exposed. Great cap but the strap irritation ruins it. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watertight Cap by Columbia I'm very picky when it comes to finding hats that fit and look great. I originally ordered a gray and a blue hat just to try for size. Once they arrived, I was praying that they fit because they were exactly what I was looking for: comfortable, stylish, great for overcast or wet conditions due to the exterior material and mesh interior and good quality. After trying them on, I fell in love with the hat so much that I'm heading to the embroiderer tomorrow to have our kayak association's logo put on the front. These hats are perfect for the outdoorsman whether hiking, camping or on the water while kayak fishing!! Great product and great fit.....thanks Columbia!!
