Rated 5 out of 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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.

Rated 2 out of 5áby mamaplanes Runs small. Smells bad.
The hat seemed nice enough but It was too small for my head ( I don't have a particularly large head) and right out of the package it had a chemical smell. Sorry, I had to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby klm01 Nearly perfect
I had the previous version of this hat which I bought from LL Bean a number of years ago and I still wear. However, it is starting to show its age so I ordered a new one. Much to my surprise, I like this one even better, mostly due to the improved strap. My one complaint is that is smells terrible. I am currently trying to take care of that by leaving it out in the sun and wind and hope the smell will go away. It has a decent size brim for sun protection without being so large you can't see. As someone else noted, the brim can be worn either folded up (more attractive) or down (more protection) to give you flexibility. The new strap is very comfortable. If there was no smell, I would give it a five.

Rated 5 out of 5áby swedishtearing Love my hat
This hat betters my previous one, which I rigged up by attaching rawhide to an inexpensive straw hat. The shape of this hat is perfect for me...with a large head and small face, most make me look like the "Cat in the Hat". The shape is unique and the quality unmatched.

Rated 3 out of 5áby MaryZPA Not for Me
I'd purchased a Bean straw sun hat in 2012, and looked forward to receiving a second in a different color this year. I was disappointed, though, by the too-tight fit of the new hat. I also felt that the styling was less attractive for me than last year's edition. It may be a great hat for some, but it neither fits nor flatters me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ILoveToBeOutside Looks good and offers sun protection.
This is my second hat; I have worn the first one for years and it is showing some wear; although I will continue to wear it out on our boat. It fits great, looks good, and packs well. I love that it has a chin strap for windy hikes and boat or car rides. Wearing it out on the water it can shrink up a bit I just stretch it along the band and it fits great again.
