Rated 5 out of 5 by Mph2017 Great hot for hot weather airshow
On a sunny,hot day at a vintage plane airshow, this hat shaded my head while keeping me cool. The chinstrap kept the hat firmly on my head when propwash blew other hats off many heads. Summer has a way to go and I will enjoy it wearing my new favorite hat.

I bought this hat because I had one years ago and really liked it. These hats are very good quality. The open mesh design in the sides allows a lot of air circulation to cool my head compared to a baseball cap (which contains the heat ), this makes a huge difference in the hot summer when mowing the lawn. The wide brim is firm and keeps it's shape and does not flop around which I really like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TravelingBiologist cool, rugged, Henschel (it's 50 S.P.F.!)
This hat has been awesome. The tags showed it to be an spf-50 hat (LL Bean lists it as 30+), which was a nice surprise. It's cool, quick drying, comfortable to wear, has a lanyard (nice when working in windy conditions) and pops back into shape after being jammed into a pack. And it looks good to boot.
The brim is wide enough to keep the sun off my ears and nose, and the rain out of my eyes during a few unexpected showers. I'm glad I bought it.

Very good quality. Brim is wide enough to protect ears and neck from sun. Crown is excellent ventilation. Sadly, the XL size was too small, and no larger size was available. Had to return it, but still recommend it!

Keeps the sun off my face and neck while spending many hours on and off the trap line. Does not interfere with sighting of my Krieghoff Shotgun for competitive shooting. Have been looking for the right "hat" for at the very least 5 years. Thank You LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobD727 Very high quality
Had to buy a new one! Old one I bought only lasted 19 years before it had to be relegated to work use only! New one is of the same quality, fits great,and looks great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jjamele Saved my life in Greece!
A week before my tour of Greece I checked the weather forecast and saw that it was going to be in the mid-90s and sunny every day I was there, so I did some online shopping for a good hat with sunscreen protection and a strong adjustable strap. This hat turned out to be an absolutely perfect choice- when in Athens, it protected me from the powerful rays, keeping my head cool despite the intense heat. Later in the week, when in the mountains to the North, the strap kept the hat securely fastened to my head despite high winds. Because I'm forgetful and certainly would have left it in a restaurant or bathroom at some point, the adjustable strap was a must as it allowed me to wear the hat all the time and just loosen it enough to wear the hat hanging off my neck when indoors. I can't say anything good enough for this hat; it certainly saved me from heat exhaustion, sun stroke, and at the least discomfort while never being in the way. GREAT!

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.
