Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveMyCorgis Too Tight
This hat is made well and really does spring back to its original shape after being crushed, making it a great travel hat. Being very fair, I can sunburn in minutes. I thought this would be a great hat to wear everyday. But it is too tight around the band. I usually buy x-large women's size. All the colors are nice, especially the pink/coral color. If they came in a larger size, I would keep all three.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirthdayRecipient Straw Sun Hat, Great Summer Head Cover
Love this hat! Great for gardening in the sun or summering on the beach! The leather strap helps to keep it from blowing off on a windy day....I am very pleased with my purchase. Thank you, LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PenEmCay Great hat!
I needed a hat that I could squish into a bag for travel. Scrunched it in a backpack and still retained its shape after. Great at keeping the sun off my face and looked nice at the same time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Larisa Water will distroy it.
I bought this hat in pink,and I was so happy about wearing it , Quality, light weight, natural look. But there is one bad thing happened , I was in Florida , and waives of salt water showered me with my hat on. My hat shrank . Now it is out of shape completaly and small. I wish I could know that I can't let water get on my hat.So it is not waterproof for sure.So be careful, if you want this hat. Water will destroy it.But if you are looking for a hat just for dry areas , it works fantastically

My husband and I travel a great deal. I am fair-skinned, blond haired and blue-eyed so I wear a brimmed-hat all the time. I needed a hat that was packable (when we fly) and this is the only one that really is crushable!!! I have tried many lower priced hats and they do not retain their shape. This is my second one since the first one got soaked on safari in Africa. The only improvement would be if it were waterproof.

Amazing they can't get the sizing right in an otherwise excellent hat. I tried it on in the store today and it didn't fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ALC13 Great hat
I have a small head, and when I saw comments that this hat runs small I knew it was for me. And it does fit well, without slipping down over the tips of my ears. I can see how others might find it too tight. I'm also really happy to have a packable hat, and the rose color is soft and pleasing. It looks and feels like a good quality purchase that will last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thequiltygardener A very nice garden hat
I bought my hat a number of years ago and really like it. It fits well and the weight is light. it offers good protection on those sunny days when working in the garden.

It's a nice looking hat and does the job, but I would have preferred a stiffer hat, that held it's shape better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cottagecountry Finally a sun hat that is cool!
I bought this hat to wear for our Caribbean holidays, and so far have literally worn it every day, and subjected it to packing, crumpling, salt water, and even using it as a pillow - and I love it! This is the first sunhat I have purchased that is not too hot. It stays in place on my head without being too tight, and the chin strap is perfect for windy days. I don't understand the other reviewers indicating that the hat smells. I haven't noticed anything.What are the odds that a straw hat may get blown off, so a strap makes sense.
I also love the pink colour which gives it a more feminine feel.
