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.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Kayaker18409 Great fit very comfortable
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.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HarryDC Nice Summer Hat
The hat is light and has mesh and thus the "Breezer" to let the air in and out! Very nice for summer and keeping the sun off the head! Well made also.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Roglee cool shaded head
Bought this hat to keep hot sun off my head, face and neck. I looked for a hat I could count on being something that would be well made and I remembered that LL Bean was the place. I wear this hat when mowing in a open field in Ky. I think this is the best made hat I have looked at. The air vents let plenty of air to pass thru. My head still sweats some but I tried once without the hat and was looking for my hat in a short time. it also help with keeping the sun out of my eyes which is a great thing since sun in your eyes is the cause of macular degeneration which is a cause of loss of eye sight. Thank L..L..Bean for offering such great products

Rated 5 out of 5áby MachOneCanoe All round rugged reliable--cool
Only had to replace the chin cord...Otherwise flawless and ideal for any outdoorsy dude: boating, canoeing, biking hiking from Colorado to St John to the coast of Maine. Dimples when rained on, then looks normal when dried. Cleans easy with mild soap, or just talc to soak up sunblock or bug spray or sweat/oil. See Henschel Hats for care. Not crushable, but has survived some very snug duffels and suitcases with a t-shirt stuffed in the crown.

Rated 5 out of 5áby davefromontario Aussie Breezer Hat
I live in Ontario Canada between two lakes and near Georgian Bay
We spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun and this hat meets the requirments of keeping the head cool and sun off the face neck and ears and aids with vision
This will also come in handy each October while in Mexico, hiking, horseback ridding through the jungle or relaxing by the pool or on the baech

Rated 5 out of 5áby MaineMomofTwoGirls Purchased to be used with Insect Netting
My daughter got a tick embedded in her eyelashes and became afraid of hikes, so I purchased this hat and netting and she loves them and now feels safe outside. It is great because the top is vented and it can be tightened at the neck so it doesn't fly off. Great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5áby DiggZ Fantastic Cover!
Extremely happy with this purchased. I had a similar hat from Walt Disney World which I loved but was lost along the way. I am extremely happy to have found this one. Fit right out of the box, shades my golden dome, and looks "cute" to boot as my wife says. I prefer the nylon cord versus the leather cord which was a change between the two hats I had. Buy it you won't disappointed.

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.
