Rated 4 out of 5 by bikermamanyc Great sun protection
I bought this hat several years ago and needed another one. It provides great sun protection. This new one is not as nice...much more stiff. There is an improvement though on the strap. The old strap had a bead, which came loose and got lost. Luckily I was able to find a replacement bead. This new strap has a tab, which can't slip off and get lost. The tab allows you to tighten strap, so hat doesn't fly off.

This replaced a straw Panama hat which was advertized as packable. It wasn't. This one has worked in a number of settings where I couldn't use the old one, such as driving with the window open. It should pack well, and it should last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smoothrock Good Hat for summer
I was looking for a summer hat, and I wanted something that offered ventilation. I didn't want a throw away after a couple months, because it had lost it's shape, or got caught in the rain and it fell around my ears, like some that I halve had.. I have worn this hat in about all situations and it looks just like it came out of the box.. Good buy!

With the hair thinning in my old age, visors are no longer an option. Saw this hat and love it so far. Felt the breeze and didn't have to worry about a burnt scalp plus it looks good on...

So far, so good. Brim wide enough to shield the sun from your eyes & most importantly, good ventilation. Not as light weight as a Panama hat but not as apt to blow off in the slightest breeze either. The next real test is to see how well it washes. Thanks for offering a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by onlinebeantime Well ventilated hat
I need a well ventilated hat and this is perfect. I chose a size medium. I'm an average sized woman and it is feels a bit on the tight side. I'm hoping it will stretch over time. I'm happy with my purchase.

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.

Purchased for my husband who fishes, travels and is outside a lot. Sizing, look, comfort...all as expected!

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.
