Ratings and Reviews

Breathable Sou'wester
Breathable Sou'wester is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from very disappointed Dreadful bit of kit. Souwesters are designed to cope with sailing square riggers in the storms of the southern ocean and the back flap is supposed to channel sea water and rain off your neck and down the back of your oilies. The fabric of this is so thin that anything over the gentlest breeze twitches the flap aside sending the water straight down your neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product I wanted this sou'wester because I find hoods on rain gear irritating, but neither do I like my hair getting wet, so when I found this while searching on the net I was pleased. I liked the feature of a chin cord which keeps securely on my head and having worn it several times since purchase, in heavy rain and wind, its waterproof properties are very good. When returning indoors, a good shake removes excess water, making it OK to hang to dry. No wet hair or having to manage a hood, brilliant. Will be buying another in blue as finances allow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 100% waterproof Bought this recently and apart from being told I look like Captain Birdseye (ha ha) I love it. It came up a bit big but that ended up being an advantage as I wore a thin fleece hat under it keeping me warm and dry. The colour matches my jacket (red) and I'm ignoring the other comment "red 'at no drawers". Delightful friends I have. But seriously if you need a waterproof comfortable hat that you can fold easily into pocket or backpack, this is the one, definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very functional hat Great hat for dog walking in the rain , the cord keeps the hat on in windy weather and the the back of the hat stops water going down the back of your neck .
