Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Looking Hat I purchased this hat for my husband, for a northeast garden tour, we recently took. He loved it! It kept the sun off his face, and was appropriate for sightseeing in the cities. Looks very dapper!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good protection, but ... I bought this because I wanted a wide-brimmed hat I could pack (not easy to find). The hat is too large (I had to pad it), though of course I have no way of knowing if a smaller size would have fit. And it didn't completely return to its original shape after it came out of the suitcase. It does offer good protection from the sun, though, which is why people buy these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional I bought this hat for a trip to Central America. It is bulky and takes a lot of space in your carry on. Pro's, It is very effective at sun protection Cons. Its heavy to wear over a period of time and the "sweat band/elastic insert becomes itchy and I imagine will need to be cleaned if used frequently. Not sure how to accomplish that. It is a lot of money, and not really suitable (like a panama) to go to sit in an outdoor restaurant, makes you feel quite conspicuous. Because this is not a versatile (multifunctional hat ) I rated it low

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Was Looking For As an avid gardener with low tolerance for sun exposure, this is everything I was looking for in a hat--wide brim, nice natural color, fits nicely, and just feels righ.! I have four other hats, but this has quickly become my favorite "go-to" whenever I head outside for a day's work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and sun safe! Even though my fair-skinned senior husband has been carved up like a steak numerous times for skin cancer, I had a difficult time getting him to wear a hat at all. When he did, it was a baseball cap, exposing his neck and ears to more cancer opportunities. When this hat came in, stylish and with a little wider brim, he liked it and wears it constantly - for casual and other occasions as well. Awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking and practical hat. I recently purchased 3 hats from Coolibar, two were a size too large due to my measurements. I returned them and got smaller sizes quickly. They fit great, are of superb quality, and my wife especially likes the look of this hat. I looked for months for anything similar but Coolibar is the only company I found with a huge selection of sun hats, and that also look great. My wife has just ordered 4 hats.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Hat I ordered this hat online. the pictures did reveal how floppy the brim is. The sizes are undersized . Generally it you don't care how you look in this hat it will keep the sun off your head
