Rated 5 out of 5 by Pokeyclown No Brainer
I bought his hat because it came in Small. My forehead measures 21 1/4 inches, right over my eyebrows (no brain?). The measurement for Small is 21 1/8- 21 1/2, so I'm right in between. Of course there are Medium 21 7/8 -22 1/4 and Large 22 5/8 -23 also.
The shell is 60/40 cotton/poly. The lining is all nylon. It has a flat top to go with my flat head (no brain!).
Instructions say it's machine washable and dryable, but I hand -washed mine with Woolite and air dried it. Mine's black and black fades in the dryer.
You might need to base the size you buy with how you plan to wear your hair, as any extra bulk might mean you need two sizes. An updo, braids, dreads, barrettes, scarves, and headbands can add bulk, which is actually good if your hat is not snug enough with flat hair.
If you've been chemo'd, my I suggest a stretchy-knit headband first, followed by a scarf tied in back, then this hat. This works equally well, whether you have "baby-chicky fluff" or "nude with 'tude" - attitude, that is. Been there, had both. If it's windy wear a scarf that isn't slippery, because the nylon lining might be. Try a cotton or wool challis scarf.
My favorite features are that it's offered in Small, it's washable, and the button adornment. I love buttons as adornment. Just wish it came in Dark Cranberry to go with my trench coat of the same color - TA284580.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vika2 Great hat
Cute hat, fits well. Someone complained it came out wrinkled out of the bag. Just sprinkle some water all over it, stuff it with plastic bags and give it some shape. It will be just fine when it dries out!

Rated 1 out of 5 by CanuckShopper007 Poor Quality, Not Worth the Price
I received the hat today, it was shipped in a plastic bag, and it came all wrinkly. The care tag on the inside says 'do not iron', so I don't know how this can be worn with all these wrinkles.
The hat might look nice on the website (maybe it's a result of perfect photoshop work), but in real life it's out of shape (even if without the wrinkles caused by shipping).
The hat was made of thin material that looks very cheap. If I saw it in a store I wouldn't want to buy it even if it was for $9.99. If $4.99 maybe - and that's what seems to be fair price for a hat of such quality.
Definitely not worth the price they're selling. I shipped it back right away. A few dollars' loss for the return shipping but it's still better than keeping something so dissatisfactory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ErnaL Great Fit!
I ordered the Women's Commuter Hat because it was available in my size, and because I usually look ridiculous in "one size fits almost all". This hat suits my small face and stature, and it actually fit my head size. I ordered red, and it just matches a red raincoat that I already have. I'm thrilled with this... it is truly water-resistant, and is flattering. I'm ready to order a second in the beige/stone color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rugby267 Just a great little hat!
This rain hat is really nifty. Light weight and packable yet with a nice structure when it is on your head. I love the button on the side. It does its job really well and is cute as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dudos This is a great hat!
Finally, a hat that comes in Small size, as well as Medium and Large. I have a small head, and living in Oregon, I need to wear a hat often. I have had to buy so many hats that are "one size fits all," and have the inner band altered so they would stay on, and then they are not all that secure. This hat also has a nice brim that keeps my glasses dry. I have four of them, two in tan and two in black, and I keep one each in my car. I have had so many compliments on these hats while I'm wearing them, and I always tell them where I bought them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BlueprintB Useful everyday hat
I like to wear a hat when I go out, to keep the sun off my face and to keep my head warm. This hat, in stone color, fills my needs, folds when not in use, and goes with everything. It arrived wrinkled, but I washed it and the wrinkles came out. Medium size is a bit snug on my rather large head, but large size would be too big.

I liked the color,Blue. I found the large to be much too loose, and there is no way to tighten it. It will be good if you do not want to mess up a hairdo. I am keeping it for that reason

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanagram2 Looks good
While I still have my 25 year old black LLBean rain hat I wanted a back up hat. This new commuter hat in blue fits the bill. I ordered a small for a snug fit so the wind would not blow it away. Fit and look are great. I expect this new one will last a long time too as its very well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UmpteenthBeanShopper Too small and could blow off in a storm
This hat is well made and comes in very limited colors (I ordered a black). There is no way to make sure it does not blow off, so getting a proper fit is important. The small is way too tight. I found a hat in this style, but with a draw string from another vendor, so this one went back.
