Rated 5 out of 5 by PlaidFan Excellent running hat
This hat is lightweight, breathable, quick-drying, and fits snugly - everything I could want in a hat for running!
To address other people's concerns, I have run slowly and I have run quickly, and I have never noticed the strap tail bouncing around. However, for someone with a smaller head, the tail might get long enough to be an issue. Also, the colors in the photo, at least on my computer monitor, are pretty accurate. Whether or not you like the scheme is obviously personal preference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by steve16 Good Hat
Bought it for the light weight and sun protection. Works well for running in the good weather.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hatasaurus Really dislike the rear strap
I should have read the reviews which I now see mention the rear strap flapping around. It's really a poor design, there's a plastic widget on the end of the loose strap and it makes things worse by adding weight, contributing to causing the end to hang down and swing every which way when you move. In addition, the plastic buckle system snags my hair and I keep pulling out hair when I remove the hat. If it was more expensive I'd probably return the hat but with the cost of shipping I'm not sure it's worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JoeTheGeek Disappointing hat
Just received the hat and not happy with the fit. The adjusting strap has a tail that just looks terrible. (I'm a large/xlarge hat size and the tag end of the strap hangs out 1 1/2 inches - not a good look). Otherwise the material is o.k) Being kind of a geek I will probably keep the hat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tomtrout comfortable and annoying
mixed feelings. the hat is light weight, cool, and looks good, however, the "tab" that adjusts the fit of the cap is very annoying. the "tag" end just seems to "flop"---- a design adjustment would be to provide a "tuck" for the "tag" end or use velcro in place of the buckle. will probably return the cap.

I bought this cap in two different colors. My husband loves both; the fit is comfortable (and adjustable) ,is breathable, and the quality is excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by wdesigner Poorly made hat
I bought this hat for my husband but had to return it. It was poorly made and did not fit him right. The strap in the back won't lay flat and sticks out . The colors are strange. Forget it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by blackpoll Not bad
Hat looks good and is comfortable to wear. I'm not convinced, though, that it keeps my head much cooler than a regular baseball cap.
