I have been buying this had for the past three years in various colors. It meets our needs perfectly. The hat material is durable, but not too stiff. The brim is flexible so a child can wear it while leaning his/her head back in a stroller/jogger or wheelchair. The chin strap is soft and doesn't rub. The soft suede piece attached to the chin strap is easy to adjust, yet stays in place. I always do lots of research before buying an item on-line, and checked out several other hats on-line before purchasing this one.
