Rated 4 out of 5 by TrueJoe Pricey but good
This item is terrific as all-weather hat, although Gore-Tex can be hot, very effective for rainy weather. Runs large so best to order one size smaller. I ordered extra large and had to return for a large size. Also very high price compared to other similar hats, may be over-priced but is good quality.

Love it! Very comfortable, breathes and is not sweaty; stays on in the wind with chinstrap, and rainproof. Brim is wide enough to be a good sunshade.
If there's only room in your bag for 1 hat, pack this one!

Great at keeping the sun off you head and face. When it rains
the hat keeps your head dry. I like the fact of easy storage and
it is light in weight. Looking forward to using this hat when we
travel to the north west U.S. this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hiddenacres A must have!
I had purchased one of these for myself and finally convinced my husband that he needed one. Excellent for keeping you dry while doing chores even in the pouring rain. Very light weight and comfortable. Runs true to size. Definitely worth the cost.

I was shocked at how light weight the hat was upon arriving. I have used it several times and love the hat. It is large enough to wear a headband for warmth and it keeps my head and shoulders dry after hours of work at the stables in the cold rain. Dries quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DCMc Gore-Tex hat is a "no sweat" decision
I use this hat mostly as a sun hat, but it also works well in the rain. Due to my northern European (as in pasty white) ancestry, I need a hat when outside for any period of time in Florida where I live. Most hats cause my head to sweat. Most hats don't have a large enough brim to cover my neck and face. After a couple of failed hat experiments, I have found this Gore-Tex hat to work for me. I still get a little sun on my nose, but it is infinitely better than any other hat I have ever owned. No more dripping wet hair when I take it off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PWCLover Chin strap is not secure
I purchased this rain hat because I need a good waterproof rain hat that will stay on my head in windy conditions when I'm out walking my dog. The Gore-Tex fabric is certainly waterproof and I like the wide brim. However, the "removable" chin strap is poorly designed in that the straps are merely secured by knotting them to loops that are sewn into the hat's rim. I called LL Bean customer service to find out if this was how the strap was designed and the Rep told me there was supposed to be a slit at the end of the strap to help secure it. [Too much to explain.] LL Bean actually replaced my original hat but the second one did not have these slits and just secured the strap by knotting them [exactly like my original hat].
I think a better alternative would be to have snaps. Or, just don't make the straps removable and sew them into the hat itself. I have another Gore-Tex hat like this and it has served me well over the years.
