Rated 3 out of 5 by RockyY Not so hot...
The cap's cloth material is very thin, I worry that this hat won't last very long. We'll have to see. The cloth does have UV protection.
I have a very extra large head, and after maxing out the adjuster, it does fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LongJohnSilver Not Satisfactory
I purchased this hat in the clay color in the middle of May, 2013. By the middle of June, the strap had come unstitched from the hat.
L.L. Bean replaced it with a white one, but the trouble with the hat is simply that it does not come down far enough onto your forehead. Subsequently, it gets blown off very easiy. L. L. Bean used to sell a similar hat that was in an ugly green color. I still own one! The color might not be to most people's liking, but the hat is 100% more functional than this one. It is a better fit and doesn't blow off. It has magnets at the ends of the flaps, which are much easier to deal with, and has a shock cord that runs all the way around the sweatband from corner to corner of the brim. L.L. Bean should go back to this other hat. It is far superior to this present hat!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jagdama Fantastic hat to protect kids / others from sun
We had one of these before and lost it and really couldn't live without it in the summer? Both our three-year-old son and parents use this hat ? it fits both equally well. It's very easy to wash and his durable and light and comfortable to wear. A real summer essential!

Rated 5 out of 5 by biobeanie Perfect for a baseball game!
Best features are the pony tail hole and the button on the front flaps so you can either button it under your chin to not blow away or button it on top of your head if it gets too hot. Plus even with it buttoned on top, it still keeps the sun off the top of my ears. The fabric is lightweight but it does not breathe very well. It was a little warm in the 90+ weather. Overall though a great hat!

I expected better quality since it is LL Bean. Side flaps don't protect neck. I am very disappointed with this purchase. Head gets very hot and sweaty from material of hat. Will return this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Demesmom Good coverage
This is very lightweight and covers the neck and chin quite well. The only complaint is that one of the side seams was not back stitched so as I put it on for the first time, a side seam pulled open about 6". So it is on top of my mending pile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moozie Light weight but great sun protection!
Love this hat! It is my go-to when I am working in my garden. Keeps the sun at bay and also makes me feel secure about getting ticks on my head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by primarycolors Comfortable Sun Protector Hat
This is a great hat and is just what I was looking for to shield me from harmful sun rays. It is light weight, with a long visor which helps shield my sun sensitive eyes. The light weight back flap keeps my neck from getting sunburned. I chose the white hat and I like the bright white. It's very tropical looking. Good price too.
