This is the ventilated wide-brimmed hat that provides sun protection while reducing heat build up. The hat's nylon mesh sides facilitate cooling ventilation and the solid, cotton twill top and a 2 1/2"-3" brim protect the head, face, and neck from sun exposure. The Cancer Council Australia (on a continent where skin cancer rates are amongst the highest on the planet) recommends wearing wide-brimmed hats to reduce the risks of injury from UV-exposure. An adjustable chin cord makes for a secure fit or easy hanging, the 1" band circumscribes the hat just above the brim, and the hat is lightweight and crushable for packing and storage. Made in the U.S. Khaki. If in between sizes, order the next size up.
To get the proper fit in a hat, we recommend that you measure your head to determine your proper hat size.

does the job
By sun in moderation
from Brooklyn, NY
I need a hat that I can carry in a bag without worrying about it, and this works.It's a little odd walking around NYC with it (styling suggests the australian outback) but it does a good job of blocking sunlight without too much extra heat.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fits my Needs Perfectly
By Walking Texan
from Killingworth, CT
I have looked for a breathable, classy, brimmed hat for a while. This is perfect! I am paying a mint for anti-aging skincare products, so it's ridiculous to walk for an hour daily without a brimmed hat. But all of my other brimmed hats do not breathe well and I get so hot that I often take off my hat after working up a sweat. This one solves that problem!
ONE OF MY FINEST
By Bobby the Hat
from Woburn, MA
One remarkable aspect of the hat is its travel worthiness. It folds down for packing in travel unlike any hat I've had. I'm real happy with its style and comfort. It is a great product.
By Gary the gardner
from Canton , Illinois
I've tried many hats but this one by far exceeds my expectations. It feels great on and looks very stylish. It is also very comfortable. Love it!
The Ventilated Brimmed Hat
from Northern Illinois
I purchased this hat for my husband as he was having a difficult time finding one that was appropriate for golf. The brim shields his ears and back of the neck from sun exposure, yet is not too large to play in. It is ventilated well, and keeps its shape.
I was disappointed with the sizing.
By The Golfer
from Estes Park, CO
We had previously ordered this product from HS and loved it. When we reordered the same product it was not the same in quality or sizing. I sent it back and was disappointed. The first one was fabulous.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
