Rated 3 out of 5áby Needsahat Dissapointed
I wear a lot of hats. I am bald and I have had a brush with skin cancer so I keep my head covered as much as I can. I appreciate a wide brim and own several. I needed a new one and as always go to LL Bean to see what they have to offer. I read the old reviews and thought this hat was exactly what I was looking for. I also read the new reviews and still thought I would take a chance. Made a mistake. It is a nice hat but too flimsy in the brim for me, It is pretty floppy. Also as others have stated the wind string is kind of cheesy. If you occasionally wear a hat this might work for you. If you are a serious hat person, you had better look elsewhere.

I wanted a wide-brim hat with some style (I don't like the floppy ones) for sun protection while enjoying outdoor spectator sports, the beach and fishing. I wanted a chin strap available for windy situations. And I wanted it to be fairly lightweight with ventilation so my head wouldn't get too sweaty. This hat fills the bill on all accounts.

As always in my experience LL Bean came through with a quality product. This hat is well made of good materials. Unfortunately mine was too small. When you size yourself for this hat (per LL Bean sizing chart), ensure you add at least an inch to your measurement for a good fit. I will be exchanging this hat for a larger size.

I recently left my lower quality safari hat on a tour bus. I needed a quick replacement since I am out in the sun a lot and didn't want to wear a less protective style hat. I ordered this hat since it appeared to be similar to my lost one. When I received the hat I was very pleased with my purchase. My new hat is more comfortable, better constructed, and provides excellent protection from the sun. It also allows for good ventilation on hot days via the fine mesh band above the brim which is appreciated! I think this hat will last a long time if I don't lose it like my last one.

This is the second purchase of this hat for a friend. Lost his last one coming up from Florida in the spring. We, also, own two of them for my husband and myself. So comfortable especially in the hot summer days.

Rated 4 out of 5áby javaperson Great Summer Hat
Just as advertised. High quality in every respect. I only gave 4 stars due to the fact that the size only goes to XL (24" cir.). Many of us with larger heads, which is not that uncommon, need a slightly larger fit, and seemingly most hat companies provide sizes for 24" and larger size heads. Please take this in consideration if in that range. The XL may fit a 24 1/4" head, depending on your comfort level.

Rated 5 out of 5áby KYWildcat18 Excellent Hat!
I ordered this hat in medium, khaki. Fit is true to size, based on the size chart. I got this hat for a Cooperative Extension canoe/kayak program I held on the Kentucky River, focusing on natural resources. It was perfect--comfortable, kept my head cool, kept the sun off my ears and neck. In addition, I had many compliments on the look of it. At first, I was unsure to purchase this hat, thinking it may be too manly, but it's not at all. I absolutely love this hat, and can't wait to wear it again. Great price, too. Thank you, L.L.Bean!

I have been a Tilley hat wearing for years but they do no have one that has the breathable mesh for the whole top, only a strip. This hat allows the breeze in and keeps the sun off my ears, nose and neck.
