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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 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 5 by 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.
