Expedition Sombreros are commercial quality with full stainless steel frames, stainless steel hardware, and top of the line Sunbrella canvas in your choice of colors. Expedition Sombreros are suitable for everything you can throw at it, including Grand Canyon trips and commercial fleets. Naturally, Expedition Sombreros provide cool shade for your raft, stability in wind, quick stowing, and easy mounting to decks or frames.
We recommend 6' Sombreros for rafts 14' and under so your Sombrero can comfortably fold onto the back of your raft without overhanging. 8' lengths provide more shade for longer rafts. The folded-down lengths are 64" from the mounting point for 6' Sombreros and 74" for 8' Sombreros. Mounting points are typically 6-8" behind the oar locks. To select the width, measure center point to center point for frame mounting or just inside your oar locks for deck or slide track mounting. Everyone's setup is a little different, so we recommend checking yours to find the size that fits your raft. See Choosing a Sombrero
for more help with sizing.
