This hat changed my life. I have become a complete jungle man. Frogs immediately gravitate to me. I’ve started a frog training school. The only part of my old life that I’ve brought with me is my beloved coffee mug. This hat has truly transformed my life and it protects my skin so I’m at my best for frog school every day. Seriously, buy this hat. It's incredible.
I bought this hat to help protect my face while out on the water for a recent trip to French Polynesia. The hat is lightweight, collapses down to a small size for packing, is very breathable and provided the sun protection I was looking for. My head is slightly narrow but long and so I often have a difficult time get a hat to fit right. With the elastic draw string I got just the right fit. I was so pleased with my hat that I bought my father in-law one and he wears his anytime he is out in the yard.
- Light weight
- Collapses to a small size for packing
- Good sun protection
- Adjustable fit with the use of the elastic draw string
- I wish it were somehow more stylish. But as far as sun hats go, this one looks pretty good.
Got this for my husband for Father's Day and he loves it! We spend a lot of time at the pool and the ocean and it does a great job of protecting the sun from his face and neck. Thinking about getting one for myself as well!
I wore this on a 9 hour hike in the Utah desert on a 100-degree windy day. It worked very well and was quite comfortable. I did sweat around the base of the hat (where it's against my skin) and had to let the hat air out frequently, but it was 100 degrees, after all. The brim held its shape pretty well, and wasn't too floppy or too stiff. I've only used it for 3 or 4 hikes, so I can't attest to how long it would hold its shape over time. It's flexible enough that I could bend it in half and stuff it in a mesh outer pocket of a backpack. I probably wouldn't fold it in half in a suitcase - I packed it flat - but it would probably bounce back even if you did. The strap was easy to tighten and loosen. I liked the looks and the color as well.
I've been using a baseball cap to protect my mostly-bald head when doing yard work an extended period of time. After looking at some Tilley hats, I figured I would give this one a shot at a fraction of the cost. I'm glad I did; I think this one meets my needs just fine. Unlike a ball cap, this allows plenty of air to move across my head while walking around, meaning I sweat a whole lot less. The brim seems to be a perfect width to protect my face and peripheral vision, meaning I don't have to worry as much about sunglasses unless it's really bright out. It is easily adjustable to size, and stays on the head very well without being too tight (like, elastic bands can chafe). Can't wait to use this hat for hiking and other activities as well!
