Seattle Sombrero GTX


Backpacker® Magazine's 2005 Editor's Choice Gold Award winner--and it's easy to see why. Waterproof but breathable due to the unequalled Gore-Tex membrane, the Seattle Sombrero travels seamlessly with you between sun and shower. The foam-stiffened brim floats in case the weather should carry it away without you, there are hook-loop tabs on the side in case you want to pin the rim up and a removable chin cord.

*At any time we generally carry a selection of wild colours in various sizes of the Seattle Sombrero. We may at any time be out of stock of certain listed colours and sizes, although we may have additional stock not pictured here. We advise that you call us (02 9261 3435) before ordering for an up-to-date stock situation. Thanks.

Sample Facebook Testimonials

Amanda Warriner - 5★ "I spent close to 3 hours in this store today, being fitted for and choosing a pack, and the staff are fantastic. Helpful, knowledgeable, patient and friendly - and I think I'm probably a fussy customer and I have difficulty finding packs that fit comfortably. Has to be my best experience in this kind of store to date."

Tom Brickhill - 5★ "My favourite outdoor shop in Sydney. This is where you go if you want to see gear stocked because of it's quality, not just because it's corporate overload has pumped out another 10,000 puffer jackets that need to be moved before next season. Knowledgeable staff that actually partake in trekking and travelling themselves. Definitely worth dropping in!"

Adam Jude Baus - 5★ "Always friendly, helpful staff with great knowledge. Great range of good quality products (nothing really low end) including Australian/NZ brands e.g. Wilderness Equipment, One Planet and Aarn. Never had a fuss with exchanging unused gear within the 2 week period."
