This is the ventilated wide-brimmed hat that provides sun protection while reducing heat build up. The hat?s nylon mesh sides facilitate cooling venitalation and the solid, cotton twill top and a 21/2"-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.

Fantastic Hat, good quality, good value!
By Ed the Roo

Out in the sun in Florida and just what I needed
We loved the hat. It was small and we sent back to get next size. My husband can not wait until it arrives. Thank you for having a hat that will help keep skin safe from cancer.

Protection from summer sun
Best I could find
from Ottawa, ON
On the first time use, feeling the breeze go right through was great. I was between sizes and went for the larger as mfr. suggested. Wife easily added a band inside rim to fit.
Ventilated Brimmed Hat
from Portland, OR
Durable hat for keeping the sun off the face. Brim is not ventilated and hat feels heavier than it looks. Top of hat is also a solid piece which tends to hold in the heat somewhat.

It is exactly what I wanted.
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.
