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 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.
“The way the mesh breathes and allows air flow through is fabulous. The brim is wide enough to protect my face, and my head is protected wonderfully against bright sun.”- LFD, Virginia

First hat I feel comfortable wearing!
By Happy Hat Wearer
from Dover, NH
My whole life (I am 68) I have never liked to wear a hat, so I didn't. The day before I ordered this hat, I was attending an airshow on a hot sunny day. The man seated directly in front of me was wearing this style hat. I was wearing a baseball cap only out of necessity. I was sweltering despite the cap, he looked cool and seemed cool. The next day I ordered size XL, the largest offered by HS. The hat was too small. I bought it locally the next day in size 2XL which fits fine,
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The hat does what my hair used to do, keep the sun off my head.
from Central Point OR
I bought this as a gift for my husband. He loves it. Looks great on him, and because he says it is very comfortable, he will actually wear it.

Outstaning hat- perfect fit & function!

Great sun hat
from Glenwood Springs, CO
Fits reasonably well. A little snug but ok. Holds on well in brisk wind but I can also push it up higher for a bit more cooling effect. Love the look and crush ability. Looks like it will last many years.

Bought as a gift for my husband and he likes it better than the other hats he has! This was a winner!

Great hat for being outdoors in sunny, hot southern Arizona. The ventilation keeps it cool, and I think it looks great on. I wear it on walks, hikes, and working outdoors, and I've had it a year, and it's holding up well. It's stiff brimmed, so I don't recommend it if you intend to squash it into a suitcase for travel. I doubt it'd unsquash well. You need room to take it in a car or into a restaurant. But I knew that going in, and I love the hat.
Seems to be just what I ordered.
from Hideaway, Texas
Appears to be what I ordered, that is will keep the sun off of my ears, nose and most of my face. Looks like a good product.
Loving my sun topper!

Great for looking stylish (Aussie) and avoiding the sun.
