Rated 5 out of 5áby 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 5áby 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.

This is the very best hat out there. The fit was perfect after careful sizing at home prior. Ventilation is superb.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nahino Cool, attractive hat
I ordered this hat for my husband, who always wears a hat, regardless of the season, and is particular about what type of hat he will wear. This hat fits well and has an attractive shape and color (green) as well as small holes to allow air to flow through.

Rated 5 out of 5áby midlifehiker Perfect Hat
I was looking for a hat to take along on a upcoming sunny vacation. This hat was a perfect fit, and lightweight, looks very packable and came in attractive selection of colors. That was the hardest part, choosing the color I wanted. I wore the hat the next day to climb Mt. Washington in NH. It was a very hot and humid day. The hat kept me in the shade and so lightweight, I hardly knew it was there. It stayed put as well as I summited into the famous Mt. Washington breezes. I love it, and it doesn't look frumpy.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TexasPaddler Excellent hat for the money
Well made, quality construction and mid weight, much lighter than a Tilley and half the price. Mesh indeed lets air move around while still blocking sun.

Rated 5 out of 5áby DanLikeLLBean Great Hat
I usually don't like wearing a hat in the hot summer but my wife thought I should wear one on our beach vacation to limit sun exposure to my face and ears. I liked the description of this hat being cool while offering sun protection, so I purchased it. I wore it often on our beach vacation and found it to be as described -- cool, light weight, while providing shelter from the bright sun. Oh, also it make me look great with an Australian carefree appearance.

Bought this hat to keep the Florida sun off of my ears and head and that what it does. You know the old saying "do not leave home without it" and that is what I do. Great fit and the chin strap comes in handy on those windy days.
