Rated 5 out of 5 by yeehaw Long timer?
I bought this hat partly because it looked just like a hat that I've had for decades and that is now so dirty and disreputable that I only wear it in my backyard. Turns out the key features are the same, so I have hopes for this one outlasting me. The wire-rimmed, stitching-reinforced brim is key and should keep the brim from collapsing. Make sure you like the color if you buy- you may live with it for a long time.

Got this for my husband after he had a pre-cancerous lesion removed from his ear and his doctor told him to start wearing a hat for sun protection. This hat is very nice and my husband is quite pleased, which means he will wear it! We will be ordering the other color as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wfm1 Great hat
While I liked the hat itself, it was too small even though I went by the sizing chart on the web site. According the the chart and my head size the XL size should have fit.

My son likes it so much I bought another one for another son. The one star off is because it requires hand washing and it gets very dusty on our property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SweatinInTexas Fantastic Fit and Comfort. Great Sun Protection!
My husband has been looking for a hat that is comfortable, protection from the sun and something that would let his scalp breath. I saw this hat online and I didn't hesitate ordering it. My husband loves it. No matter what he is doing outside he has this hat on. He even wears it when he goes Trap & Skeet Shooting. Happy Husband, Happy Wife!

I love this hat. It keeps the sun off my ears better that any other type of hat. It's great that it lets my head breath. Just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolCola Look cool while being cool
I bought this hat for several reasons. 1. I spend a lot of time in Florida & even wearing sunglasses, I get a lot of glare from sunlight, so I needed a hat with a fair sized brim to cut the glare. 2. I get a very warm head in the direct sun, so I wanted a hat that did not make my head sweat. 3. It can be very windy where I go, so I needed a hat with chin strap to make sure the hat did not blow away. 4. I like the look of an Aussie style hat, but the last one I bought had a floppy crown, which totally spoiled the 'look', so decided on a stiff crown & brim. Just wore this hat on a 4 hour guided tour of a barrier island off Florida coast... hat worked like a champ, hit all 4 needs perfectly. I did measure my head circumference, so hat fits fine, suggest one do this carefully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Floridapaddler Best hat ever!
This hat was exactly what I expected, as I have been wearing one just like it as part of my state park uniform for over three years---even the same manufacturer. My green uniform hat has "Florida Park Service" on the band, so could only be worn with the uniform.
Now I have a khaki one to wear for my non-work paddling.
This hat is a perfect design for paddling/hiking in the Florida sun. Stays cool in hot weather, dries quickly if caught in the rain, the brim stays stiff even when wet, and it's darned cute, too.
Yes, I have already recommended it to a friend or two.
