The Cancer Council Australia (on a continent where skin cancer rates are amongst the highest on the planet) recommends wearing wide-brimmed hats like ours to reduce the risks of injury from UV-exposure. While most brimmed hats are stifling, ours has nylon mesh on the sides to reduce heat buildup, so it combines superior sun protection with cool ventilation. Solid, cotton twill top and a 3" brim protect your head and face, and an adjustable chin cord makes for a secure fit or easy hanging. A 1" band circumscribes the hat just above the brim. Lightweight and crushable for packing and storage. Made in the U.S. Khaki. If in between sizes, order the next size up. 3" Brim. 4 1/2" H x 12" W x 14 1/2" L. (6 oz.)
To get the proper fit in a hat, we recommend that you measure your head to determine your proper hat size.

By Debera bought hat for husband
from Chandler, AZ
This hat protects my husband's head from the sun really well. It is great in HOT weather because it stays cooler than other hats he has had.
from Vienna, VA
My husband has had many instances of Melanoma. The fact that the Cancer Society recommended this hat was definitely the main reason for the purchase. It protects him while looking stylish and it travels well. He lives in it on the golf course!!
The combination of sun protection and ventilation make this hat a useful and comfortable item.
By Farmer Ben
from Pendleton, NC
I've tried a lot of hats. Been wearing this one for two years on the farm and on the boat. It's still in great shape, just a little stained from exposure to tough conditions. Chin strap's nice on the boat, tucks away when I don't need it. Breathes well, shades well.
from South Bend, IN
The hat feels pretty good -- I would like it even more if it had a bit of elasticity to make the fit even better. I bought it primarily for sun protection while golfing or doing other things outside, so the wide brim is really nice.

I use this hat for outside work, it holds up, it breaths, my God, it's alive! No, just kidding. It's a well made hat that will last a long time. The color is great. I feel like I'm on Safari in my back yard.
good looking hat

Cooler than my dad's brim hat
from miami, fl
good looking hat. It should be good for travel boating and the beach.
Suitable for beach, garden or fishing.
from Saskatchewan, Canada
Even though head measurements were in between L and XL, I sized down and it fits comfortably.
