Rated 5 out of 5 by confusethecats versatile cap
I was warned that during my visit to Ireland this fall, I should prepare to encounter rain pretty much every day. So I bought this cap, hoping it would help me keep dry.
The time we spent there turned out to be two of the most beautiful weeks they've had this year! I needed the waterproof qualities of this cap just one day, and it did indeed keep me dry.
But it also served to shade my eyes on the sunny days! The silver color went with everything, and the cap was completely appropriate for the sunny and cool days we had.
And I appreciated the adjustability -- the cap actually stayed on my head despite the wind at the Cliffs of Moher and the Giants' Causeway!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JIMMY3 Very nice, except ...
There is no place to tuck excess adjust strap in back, just kind of hangs there. But, nice style, fit - very light and waterproof material.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Oldduffer4 Not up to expectations
I was the proud and happy owner of the previous GoreTex version of this ball cap which I tragically left somewhere still unknown. When I ordered a replacement, the new waterproof ball cap was back ordered. After a few weeks, I finally received the new version. It was of less substantial material, did not have the classy embroidered LL Bean logo and came with an adjustable strap on it to fit all sizes. The adjustable strap extension flaps loosely on the back of the head and neck. There is an unattractive sheen on the outer surface of the cap and it's light weight makes it more susceptible to blowing away. Although I am disappointed, I will keep the cap and wear it only in threatening weather conditions. LL Bean is my "go to" source for quality products and I am rarely disappointed.

Light & comfortable. Haven't tried it in the rain yet. Only minor concern is the adjustment strap. It dangles after adjusting to my head size. I could cut it but it has a nice rubber end that would be lost.

Rated 3 out of 5 by geomt One size does NOT fit all
Seemed like a good hat that I would recommend if your head is smaller than mine.
Nice hat, but too small for my head. My hat size is 7 1/2

My husband loved this cap because it fit well, even though it's a one-size fits all and is adjustable. Also, the waterproof fabric will suit him well while on our trip to England! It's also light-weight, an extra plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DerbyWinner Great hat
I'm more than pleased with this hat. It arrived just in time for several heavy rain events in my area and it has been very reliable. It keeps the rain off your head and face, is very comfortable and looks nice. It is suitable for a man or woman as I am female and it fits fine. I've been happy with all the high-quality products I've ordered from L.L. Bean so far.

Great hat. My husband uses it often for rainy days. Please get it in navy so he stops asking me to find a waterproof hat in navy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2ndGenBeanShopper Waterproof, good in rain, not warm
Bought this for my husband, as he moved to a colder climate this year. It is helpful on rainy days, but the bill isn't wide enough to really keep all of the rain off of his glasses. It does keep it off his head though, so it functions. It is adjustable, so fits well, and fits under the hood of his rain coat or snow coat. It isn't lined at all, so it isn't warm, but it doesn't claim to be either. Its a useful item in the right weather conditions.

Excellent product, worked well on recent rainy day outing. Husband likes it, and chooses to wear it any time there is a chance of rain. Good looking and fits well with adjustable back. Lightweight, comfortable, looks like it will be durable. Excellent product.
