Review: Pocket Hat GTX review 02/01/14

What's in a hat..? There are so many types to choose from, different materials to try and a vast range in price, that it can be a bit of a minefield. Of course, weather conditions and pack size do come into the equation and with these in mind, I trialled a Pocket Hat GTX® during a trip to Mt. Kenya.


Any alpinist will tell you that weight is everything. The removal of every last inch of spare strap and trinket explains this to a tee. The Pocket Hat GTX® comes in at a tiny 45g, and as it's name suggests, it's small enough to pack into a pocket. The brim folds into three and with a little careful origami, you can get the entire hat down to much less than pocket size. I regularly slid it into a variety of pockets during the trip and occasionally even lost it under my gloves etc..!


I suffered some quite adverse weather conditions during my trip, including pouring rain and driving snow. I must say that the Pocket Hat GTX® kept my head dry at all times and I found the brim an excellent water shed. It dried in no time and then went back into my pocket. The breathable material performed well and I was surprised how cool I felt when wearing the hat.


Price wise, coming in at £30 is reasonable, but I can hear many voices saying 'I can get a cap for a fiver'. Yes you can, but it's what you want from it that matters. Do you want something cheap, cotton and cold, or something that works well and packs up into a tiny parcel..? The choice is yours...
