No need to try others. This is it - it beats all other options and visors. It handles rain, humidity, burning Texas heat, the pool, hanging out, washes, travel, etc. And it has the added benefit of folding down for travel - i can fit this in a purse, small backpack pocket, and even my jacket pocket. I haven't seen the folding option on any other product. For runner comparison: I run hot and have always preferred visors because my head gets too warm, but this hat has changed me - it has enough ventilation to keep me cool, and if I ever do want to take it off (and I generally don't), I can just fold it and stick it in my pocket jogger pockets without discomfort.
- folds, toggle adjustment, handles all weather
- nothing - but I suggest lighter color options that don't have a white sweatband - wearing a dark hat is a bad idea when the sun beats down, but a white sweatband gets visibly yucky.

Best. Hat. Ever.
I've owned a lot of running hats, but this one blows them all away. It fits perfectly and the drawstring in the back adjusts super easily and quickly. The mesh lets a lot of air flow through. Perfect hat to run, hike, or just wear around town. I'll definitely be ordering more of these in different prints.

You. Need. This. Hat
I wear all sorts of hats while running but the dorky nike running hats look soooo bad on my head. I usually run in patigonia tucker hats but those get sweaty and really arent ment for running. I dont know why I hesitated to buy this! It looks great on your head. Love the easy adjustable strap in the back (no need to take it off and adjust it while wearing it-just pull the cord or release it). It doesnt get bogged down with sweat. If you run and you wear hats, do yourself a favor and buy this hat. You can thank me later. Please make this with the classic Oiselle logo with more color options, I will buy ALL the colors.

Runner trucker is a hit with a finicky logo
I bought the runner trucker in marigold with Oiselle emblazoned across the hat. The hat performs well. I LOVE it. Unfortunately, the logo has started to come off after only two (by the book and by the instructions!) washes. Be extra careful.
- Runner trucker is the best!
- Logo is falling off ... very disappointing for $30 and only a couple of wears.
Best. Hat. Ever.
This is the best fitting trucker/baseball hat I've ever owned or tried on. Everything about it is comfortable and it's super cute. It actually fits my head without pushing on my ears or sitting way above my head.
- I love the fit, style, folding bill, mesh and elastic adjustment.

Everything about this hat it great
There is literally nothing to dislike about this hat. I saw the marigold one on a fellow bird at a race and knew I NEEDED to have it. I love the elastic adjustable back. It's just all good!
I love this hat it's my go to for daily life and long runs! It's winter here in Ontario, I just add a headband for my ears. Love the brim and the adjustable cord !
Ordering another !
I love wearing a hat when running in long races because then I don't have to put sunglasses on halfway through. I bought this one because I forgot mine when traveling for a race and I am SO happy that I did. It fits really comfortably without being tight - sometimes hats that fit well end up being too tight. It's easy to adjust and the mesh back is so breathable.
I also love that it folds, which makes it easy to travel with. Thankfully, you can wash it too! I ran an entire marathon and didn't have to adjust it one time. I didn't even feel it on my head, which is exactly what I wanted. This hat is amazing and you should buy it too!

Best hat EVER
I have a smaller head and most hats look silly on me but this hat fits perfect! I love it and because I can fold it up I take it everywhere. I have been wearing it running for a few months now and it holds up well. This is by far my favorite hat I have had, in fact it is better than my running visors too.
- The fit is great, love the bungy cord back and ventilation is great
- Nothing but I’d like to see more prints

This is the perfect hat
I'll be honest—while I love hats, I didn't get the whole trucker hat phenomenon for a long time. Why did people like that style of hat so much? So I asked about it on Twitter, and the hat received so much love that I decided I probably should trust all these runners.
The second I put on my Runner Trucker, I said "Oh I get it now." Because it is a perfect hat. The elastic band ensures the hat stays in place (it didn't move during a 10-mile race) without squeezing your head. I have a small head and often struggle to fit a hat properly, but there is no trouble with this one. The hat dries quickly in the rain. The sweatband worked even when the hat was soaked. And the mesh allows a breeze on my sweaty head. I'm very glad I jumped on the Runner Trucker bandwagon. This is now a staple in my wardrobe for running and everything else.

This is just how my head looks now
I so rarely write reviews for clothing items, but I'm over the moon with this hat. I just took it out for an inaugural run and I'm still marveling over how well-designed every aspect of it is. The drawstring in the back ensures that this hat stays put, even in windy SF. I have a small head, so it can be hard to find a well-fitting hat that stays on my head without being too tight, but this one is beyond comfortable. The panel with the design is somewhat thick, but the mesh ensures that my head stays covered, but not too hot. I really like the way the Foggy Woods looks, but I'll likely be back for other designs, especially given how easy it will be to pack this hat.

This hat is perfect. The foldable brim is really not noticeable when it’s on but it’s genius when you’re throwing it into a bag for a race or after your run. The drawstring means perfect fit and it doesn’t loosen up while you’re moving. It looks good and I forgot it was on even on a super humid day. I don’t often pay full price for running stuff but I am definitely buying more of these before they change or go away. Other hats are ruined for me now, just like other shorts, thanks to Oiselle.
Best. Hat. Ever.
I've tried lots of running hats over the years, this is by far the best. So comfortable, lightweight, sweat-wicking, and cute. I wear it all the time and wash it constantly. It's held up great. It's spoiled me so much that any other trucker hat I try to wear for running or every day just feels wrong.
- The fit, the bungee system, the materials-not too thick in the front, comfy but durable mesh.
- Could do without the foldable bill. It's hardly noticeable, but I just don't use that feature.

Best running hat
I bought this hat at a race Expo and best purchase spent! The hat is lightweight stays put! Love that it folds was perfect when I packed it away in my carry on. Will be purchasing more!!
- Love the big hole mesh on the hat
This is the only hat I will wear.
I don't like hats. They squeeze my head and give me a headache. Not this one. It's so light I can't feel it. Love the adjustable string in the back and the fact that it folds up. Perfect! Going to order another one.
- Lightweight. comfortable, easy to adjust on the fly

The best hat
The only trucker that I will wear...not poofy at all and folds perfectly for travel. I love the black all the women print and regret not picking up some of the older Sarah Attar ones.
- I don't have more!
Best running hat
I have a hard to fit (small) head and find it really tough to find a hat that fits. Not only does this hat adjust to fit perfectly but it is also super functional. Hands down the best hat I’ve tried.

Best Hat, Hands and Heads Down
This hat is amazingly comfortable and light! I usually have a hard time finding comfortable hats, as they often feel heavy and very present while running or exercising. I barely notice this hat is on, and it wicks away sweat like a dream as well. I have the Eastern Sierras version, and want all of them!
- Comfortable, light, sweat-wicking
- I didn't get it sooner!
Love the new closure style, so easy to get the sizing right. It would be great to have this on all hats. Also the mesh is super airy.
- elastic closure
Why didn't I get one sooner?!?
I recently purchased this hat and now I don't know why I waited so long!! The fit is fantastic. I love the mesh back and how flexible it is. It's not at all stiff or hot like some trucker hats (even the running specific ones). I wasn't sure that the collapsible hat would bounce back to its original shape...but it does! I'm hoping for more colors/prints of this hat in the future. I would definitely buy another one...or two...

Love the functional drawstring back and the awesome print (Vashon Island). Also love how easy it is to pack and travel with this hat as someone who is frequently on the go! Way to go, Oiselle!
- Function, fit, breathability
I love the Eastern Sierras, my family and I backpack there and those mountains are truly magical. Of course, I had to have this hat! The fit and the beautiful image make this hat my new favorite!
- Fit, color
Best Trucker EVER
This is the first trucker hat I have found that is actually functional for running! I love the elastic adjustment and how comfortably flexible the material is. The images are also lovely. I hope you continue to keep this item in the line up.
Love this hat! Great fit. I read the review about it fitting larger heads, but I have a small head and it fits great! The hat fits flat against my head and there isn't extra room on top. Can you make the "American Runner" hat in this same style!!??! Please!!!!!
- The fit!!
- Only that I can't get it in the American Runner hat.
game changer for your head
I live in vancouver, and do ALL my running in a cap to keep the rain off my glasses. I have a big forehead too, so most 'running caps' ride up and drive me nuts. For 2yrs i have been using an ugly promo hat i got free at a race expo (thats too hot and decaying from sweat and giving me forehead zits) because its the only thing that fit. Not anymore!
This hat is superlight- the crown is mesh so if you are wearing it cuz its hot and you pour water on your head during a run, it will actually reach your scalp! It has a proper sweatband that does its job! The fastener is a quick easy elastic toggle! It looks friggin' gorgeous! I know its just a hat, but dang, my head is changed!
- it is the perfect running hat for big heads, or regular heads that like trucker hats.

BEST HAT EVER!!!
I, like another reviewer, have been through a TON of "running hats". I wore this hat all weekend on vacation in HOT weather and it was everything I could ever want in a hat. Not only did it fold up so nicely and securely in my suitcase, but it was a dream to wear. I am one that gets headaches when wearing certain hats. NO headaches with this hat. In fact, I forgot I had it on! Amazing fit, amazing looking! PLEASE, PLEASE make more of these in different colors and/or prints!!! Thank you for my new favorite hat!
This hat is JUST RIGHT
I've been through my share of hats: run, trucker, baseball.
Run specific low profile hats are great on the run don't translate well to casual wear. Trucker hats look cool, but they're a bit deep for me and even the "run" specific truckers don't generally perform well on the run for me. Baseball caps have a great shape but rarely work on the run. This hat brilliantly captures everything I love about each hat type and flawlessly melds it into one super-hat. It's lightweight and sweat wicking for a run, stylish like a trucker and has a great easy shape like a baseball cap. The adjustable band provides a perfect and secure fit. The fact that this hat has a beautiful picture screened onto it and that it is collapsible for easy packing on a hike or run seemed like selling points, but in the end, they're gravy on an already superior hat. This hat is an engineering marvel.
- That despite it's hardy construction, I'll probably still outlive it. And it will be devastating to see it go. That it's not office appropriate.

Best gift ever.
If and when I go to the gym- I am an avid hat-wearer. However, frequently my hat either can handle the puddle of sweat I become 20 minutes in, or it just doesn't fit right and I spend too much time adjusting. Not this one. It's flexible, comfortable and can handle the heat. LOVE IT!
- durability, comfort and style
Great Hat, so Durable!
I love this hat! The beautiful design (I have the Vashon Island one) is breathtaking and paired with the mesh back, it is very breathable and lightweight. I also appreciate how durable the hat is. I tend to throw hats into by backpack and forget about them and find them a few days later with the bill flattened. This hat's design allows for it to bounce back after being tossed in a backpack or accidentally sat on, which is a huge plus!

I love this hat SO much. It's super lightweight, so comfortable, flexible, and has great construction. It even looks cool worn backwards. My favorite aspect of this hat though was it's ability to blind me from upcoming hills--when one comes up, I lower the bill so I can't see the rest of it, and then grind without intimidation. I love it.
Please make them in a million different colors. Maybe a solid? Please.
- Lightweight, folds, flexible, comfortable, looks cool backwards, makes hills disappear
- Wish it came in more colors
