Rated 5 out of 5 by yardman2 light, keeps sun off
Don't like hats much. But sun damaged skin requires wear one anytime in sun. Wanted a hat with built in backflap. Not many out there. This hat has back flap under headband hidden out of view. Pull it down when needed. Entire hat is light along with back flap. Have used so far cutting grass. Wind did not affect hat. Will use on river fishing later so will know how hat does then in real wind. However, if you are looking for a hat with back flap to keep sun off your neck, I highly recommend this hat. Wish it came in a darker tan. Hat is very light color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bDanny Great Hat!!
Not only is the hat exactly what I wanted and very, very comfortable but it arrived earlier then they estimated it would. And all that with FREE shipping. How can you beat that?

This is an amazing hat. It is so light the wind blew the package from front door to the yard! You can adjust how tight the sweatband snugs your head, which is not a common feature among hats. It offers all around protection. I chose the orange color with some reluctance but it turned out to be a lot nicer than I had thought. I'm very pleased.

by Lucky77 It's awesome
Wow, this is a great hat for outdoor sun protection! I've had so many people ask me where I got it. The brim can be molded to have a slight downward curve if you like and stays in place. The adjustable cord around the crown of head it terrific for windy days. I'm outside on the water and also teach tennis and this is the perfect hat for keeping the sun off my face,ears and neck.
I do wish the neck flap was just tad bit longer in the back

Bought it for kayaking. Lightweight. The chin strap and headband adjustment are not only useful but add a nice touch to the style. It is nice how the neck cover disappears into the brim when not in use. Fit is true to size. Great hat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Victorian Perfect for hot sunny weather
My only initial hesitation for this concerned how hot it would be. As it turns out, the crown is in fact ventilated--air flows through it easily.
And the brim is so wide that I may not ever need the flaps--though they are nice to have.
Finally, despite what one reviewer said, they are not small for their size--the size is perfect. Thanks again to LLB's allowing me to exchange it.

I bought this hat for my brother to go fishing in Maine. He loves it because it keeps the sun off his head and neck in the boat. The string also keeps it from blowing off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rimrock average summer hat
I purchased a similar hat from another company 2 months ago and it had vents around the crown. This hat did not. The piece that is tucked under the back of the brim for protecting the neck is nice and since it is a very light fabric it doesn't get in the way. Easy to wash and air dry.
I like this hat better than the straw hats but they are no fashion statement.
By the way, I only gave it 3 stars because in my estimation all clothing now days is just average.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caseys1Bali nice hat
I was looking for something light for the season that would protect my face, the top of my ears and the back of my neck from sun damage. I'm reading that more skin cancer is showing up in these areas. Received my order last week and used the hat over Memorial Day weekend while camping. A couple of people asked to see it.
The hat, i ordered the clay color, is made of a very light material so my head didn't sweat. The back flap which is also thin fits nicely into the rim of the hat when not in use and you can't tell that its there. There were a couple of comments in other reviews about the chin strap but it worked fine for me. I ordered the XL since I was at the high end of the size L, it was a good decision, I tightened it a bit with the cord that goes around the brim. Thinking of purchasing another in the white,
