Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coverage Newest addition to my skin cancer arsenal! Light and cool, and held-up well through machine washing. Drape tucks away easily if not needed. Chin-strap disconnects unexpectedly, but the size was true and stayed put!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice hat! Great hat; I like it! I have a very small head, so the hat is slightly big on me, but it still looks fine. The color is a pretty shade of gray which goes with a lot of my hiking outfits; great sun protection!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice hat but straps need re-designing Just received this to replace similar style of long term hats I’ve worn for years from different company. Love the hat itself and protection of neck flaps and the air flow openings of hat and fit, but neck attachments could be better quality and hat straps a real pain and don’t stay attached. If you are like me and only buy hats with straps so you don’t lose your hat, this one is not dependable bc straps have a clasp that doesn’t stay attached. They would be better sewn on I believe and I will probably need to alter this hat of which I bought 2. Straps need to be completely re-designed !!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from malfunction issue The hat is of good quality - the neck line will not stay "hooked" and my wife modified it by sewing it to the brim.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent hat, could be larger. Nice hat, with good coverage of ears and neck. The L/XL is just barely large enough for my huge head. I have other Coolibar hats in this L/XL size that fit better. Also, the neck strap and tensioning device feel flimsy compared to some older Coolibar hats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convertible Boating Hat Love this hat. Using the adjustments, the S/M fits my small head perfectly and no “hat headaches.” It has a chin strap to keep it from flying away and the full coverage neck drape blocks the sun from my neck. I hesitated about purchasing it b/c of price, but I’m so happy I did. It’s worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protection from the Sun Perfect for fishing and beach combing. It is a stylish, lightweight, collapsible and comfortable protection for the brutal sunshine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hat The hat is lightweight, provides good coverage and uv protection, also with flap on back to protect neck. The part that needs some improvement is the string that ties under chin for a windy day.The rubber ringlet that allows one to make it looser or tighter fell off and was lost, and one of the “snaps” that attach the string to the hat comes undone regularly. Not a big deal for one that doesn’t use this feature much, but the string for me is necessary! I would love for Coolibar to send me extra ringlets so that I can go back to making the string the length I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Coolibar Hat So Far I work outside and have tried a couple of Coolibar hats. I was not a fan of the fit or fabric of the Lenny sports cap, this hat is by far my favorite of them all. The neck drape is super simple to tuck under the brim of the hat and has a little snap in the back to hold it up. The brim is stiff, although not wired so it doesn't easily fly back causing me to lose all sun protection on my face in windy conditions. The chin strap is easily removable and is held on to the hat securely with fabric loops. I've bought other hats that the loops that hold the chin strap to the hat are elastic and the hat easily flies off my head in any decent wind because of the stretchiness of the elastic loops. The neck drape has two plastic snaps that you can secure around your neck, although I typically let the drape hang loose because snapping it closes the drape too tightly around my neck and I lose any sun protection on most of the back of my neck. I hope Coolibar never stops making this hat because it will be my go-to for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits My Big Noggin My head measures 23 inches around. Most hats are made for 22 inch heads. This size XXL hat fits so comfortably around my big globe of knowledge I’ve ordered both the light gray and the darker woodland gray. It has an elastic toggle at the back to cinch it up if it’s too big. The drape could be a bit longer as it doesn’t cover the back of my neck very well if I snap it closed in the front, but tucking the sewn in drape away and tucking a coolibar bandana underneath as a neck drape solves that problem quite nicely. There is a piece of fabric sewn along the underside of the brim with a snap closure to tuck the flap away if you don’t want/need the drape. The brim gives good coverage without looking oversized, and is stiff, but doesn’t seem to have any cardboard or anything keeping it stiff. My light gray hat arrived in the mail nice and flat, but my woodland gray managed to get folded in half during shipping. I lay it out flat overnight and the creases in the brim came out just fine. I hope Coolibar never stops making this hat because I love it so much!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convertible Boating Hat Blue Harbor S/M Solid Nice coverage with this hat. Makes me feel well-protected. Only problem is that the stated circumference of the brim is the MAXIMUM circumference - can't be made any looser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hat for sun and wind! My husband wears this hat everywhere in FL. I bought him a second one because he wears the first one working and it’s always dirty. I wash it in the washing machine on gentle cycle, even though it says to hand wash. I lay it flat to dry. It keeps him cooler in the Florida heat. So far it’s holding up but I like to be prepared with a back up. I have the same hat and use it to walk the dogs. It keeps the sun off my face and neck. Great for fishing too since it protects from reflection off the water. The chin strap keeps it secure in the wind. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely awesome hat for everything and everyone I loved this hat so much I bought my partner and all our kids one! My partner wears it to work everyday and I wear mine for everything from yoga to dancing to gardening, beach days and sailboat adventures as well as everyday biking to the grocery store. Fully recommend this hat to everyone! My whole family seeks this hat out as top choice for every sunny activity! <3

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great except for slider I bought this hat several months ago and just started wearing it in earnest about a month ago. There is much to love about this hat in terms of features and fit; however, the slider broke after this short time. I have had hats with straps and the same type of slider for several years with no breakage but the slider on this hat seems to be made of silicone rather than a harder rubber. In any case, the fact that it broke so soon was really disappointing. I'm a loyal customer who frequently recommends Coolibar to others so this is a rare moment of disappointment.
