Rated 5 out of 5 by NYgal Excellent Hat
Very good outdoor hat, USA-made, Henschel Hat. Co. I wanted a hat for summer wear, something not too heavy with a wide brim (this could be a bit wider), with a chin strap, SPF protection, etc. This one fits the bill perfectly. I got the size "S", using the sizing chart and previous purchases of hats that fit - being a female I need a smaller size, and usually get a man's small, as many women's hats are "one size fits all". This one is just tight enough to stay on my head in windy conditions without being uncomfortable. Some of my other men's small size hats, I have had to put in an extra "filler band" to make them stay on, not with this one. Hope it lasts a long time. And the bug net I bought here fits around it with plenty of room to reach my shoulders.

Nice loose fit for my hat size.
It is very comfortable, with a good chin strap.
Mesh on the sides reduces sweating.

This hat is a bargain at the price. I tested it on a float trip this past weekend. The fit (extra large) was perfect, the brim stiff enough to withstand the wind. The chin strap, contrary to some complaints is perfectly adequate. Not to mention that my wife thinks I look great in it. You should know that this is a Henschel hat, a company with an old and respected reputation for making great hats. I have two others and love all of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mobymelville Great hat, size small
This is an outstanding hat, so light and airy, and finally one that fits a pin head! I accidentally left it in a restaurant - horrified, I immediately turned around to retrieve it before it was snatched away. Am thinking about another in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by texasmesquite In the TX hot sun this is one great hat
I first bought this hat for my husband. We have over four acres and he is constantly mowing. We live in Coastal South Texas and it is hot here for many months. My husband loves his hat given for his birthday. He told me - he was looking for one like this and stay on with the tropical winds we get here, too. My husband loves his hat thatI recently bought another Aussie green hat for my son, in Sugarland, TX. My son stated he also wanted a hat like this for a long time and was looking for one. He was accusing me of reading his mind when he received his hat. My son loves this hat, too.

I looked many places to find a hat like this and glad I found it at LLBean. I plan on using it for kayaking and hiking. It's very comfortable and looks great on! It may seem a little pricey, but I know it will last forever. Very Good Quality.

The sizing is small so you will need to order up a size. The medium, my normal size, would not even fit on the head so ordered a large. This one the crown just seemed huge so ultimately sent back. I wanted this to work but ultimately the styling just not for me.

Great hat. Large brim blocks sun well. Ventilation is good. Great for all outdoor activities. Kinda funky looking, I like that. It's not for driving or sitting in your zero gravity recliner since the large brim in back gets into the way for that. Made in USA. It's the grooviest!

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.
