Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the wide brim and coverage! I love this hat so much! The wonderful, wide brim is excellent coverage for the face and neck. It is my go-to travel hat because it can be easily folded and put in my suitcase and purse and provides excellent sun protection! The material is nice and sturdy. I especially love the adjustable neck strap which prevents the hat from flying away in windy days. The only very negative thing about this hat is the sewing of the threads between the different sections of the hat. The threads pull apart, especially at the base of the hat and the brim. It needs to be sewn better and tighter at the base. I’ve bought over 5 of these hats and they all seem to pull apart too easily. I had to fix them by sewing it myself for almost all the hats. I hope they will make improvement in this area as that is the only negative about this hat. Otherwise, I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beach statement with amazing protection I bought this to work with a resort outfit, and it was fantastic. I was protected the entire time, but the best part is how easy the brim is to shape and reshape

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted This is exactly what I wanted for sun-safe gardening, love being able to mould the brim to exactly the shape I want and not have it flop into my eyes. Hat fits just a TINY smidge too small on my giant noggin, would be amazing if there were size options for women's hats instead of assuming our heads are all the same size! I like that the bow easily comes off, and the chin strap is helpful for when the wide brim catches the wind!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For me, this hat is perfect! Yes, on vacation some people called me "The lady with the big hat" but Most women loved it asked me where I got it. Either way I don't care since I've had a melanoma lesion I cover up & use sunscreen at all times. This hat does exactly what it is supposed to do & does it well! Thank you for awesome products for sun protection! It's such a plus that it packs perfectly in my suitcase. I may even get another color just for fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fully covers my face It looks a little silly, but this hat does the job and it's reasonably comfortable. It's kind of like an umbrella you can wear. The shapeability is nice too, not least because when I have to pass through a narrow doorway I can just bend it and bend it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage I love this hat. The strap is great for holding it on and the sun protection awesome! I wish I could get it in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful hat! This hat is a beauty, but the brim is too large for my purposes...traveling. It would be perfect for sitting by the pool and doing slow moving activities. I returned it and purchased another style with a slightly smaller brim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite tropical travel accessory I bought this hat for my trip to Thailand. Yes, it is large, but that is the point! It provided me with full coverage of my face, neck, and shoulders. Of you are a person who cares about the longevity of your skin and protecting yourself from sunburn then get this hat! It also it very cute and went along with many of my outfits (I got blue). Considering buying another one in a different color!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit I would like to purchase this Floppy Hat. I Loved the style. Would be perfect for me and my concerns regarding sun protection. Unfortunately the hat is too large by almost 2 inches. I do not always want to wear the chin strap. Any ideas how to make it smaller?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Genius Idea! Having a big hat like this that can fold down to be packed in your luggage or purse is a fantastic idea! However, this specific hat is SO big that it’s not something I would feel comfortable wearing out. Love the color (I got the blue one) and love the bow, would just prefer the brim to be about half the size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So great Bought this last year in blue and have been wanting the black ever since. I love the big brim. It covers my neck, part of my back, my shoulders, and of course my face. The wire is so important with a large hat to keep it from flopping in your face. The quality is excellent. I can fold it down to put in my purse or a large pocket, or just let it hang from my neck with the strap. Can't say enough good things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC HAT I bought this for a trip to Tahiti in the formerly available poppy color. It was fantastic in every way. I wore it daily. I could swim, bike ride, walk, beach comb and do everything in it. I got multiple complaints and a few women said, "I wish I had your hat!" because the wide brim was so important in the intense sun. It because a signature of our Tahiti pictures. You can spot me in my red hat standing in the ocean or sitting on the beach. I could fold it into fours to pack it and then unfold it and use it easily. The tie was really important on windy days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, bright and a little outragious! I bought this for an upcoming Polynesian Cruise. Love it. Fits my rather large head diameter and has a chin strap. The fabric is soft and cottony and it has a wire stabilized brim for styling. The red rocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would love this hat even more ..... Purchased this hat in black for my daughter and liked it so much that I plan to get one for myself since I'm about to start chemo and will need full sun protection. Would love this hat even more in colors...pale green, aqua, salmon, wheat .....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sun protection! It’s hard to find a stylish UPF 50 hat with a 7 inch brim! I love that you can shape the brim of this hat! It’s easy to fold/pack too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from can't see I needed a large brim hat for travel to beaches because I was tired of smooshing my straw hats in luggage. This hat looks great and is of exceptional quality; however, the brim is too floppy/not stiff enough. I am constantly pushing up the brim so I can see. I may try to insert a wire in the hem of the rim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found the perfect hat Received a few days ago and will be ordering another. I have a very large head :). Not easy in the world of hats so I was not really expecting this to be any different. Proved me wrong indeed, this hat adjusts beautifully, looks fabulous, protects against dreaded sun .. all my must haves. I’m as picky as they come & prefer to buy quality over quantity so believe me when I write .. this is a winner

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge Disappointment I was so excited to get this hat because I love taking long walks outside in the sun. However, if there is a moderate breeze from the front or side, the entire brim of the front half of the hat flips all the way up. No adjustment of the brim remedied this. I spent my entire walk holding the brim down, or having the brim flipped up and giving me no protection at all. I was incredibly frustrated. With wind, this hat is more like a giant toupée and offers no sun protection except for the back of your neck. What outdoor space doesn't have wind? This was a huge disappointment and I honestly don't see what purpose I can use this hat for in the future. It doesn't seem like Coolibar tests their products in the real world to a meaningful extent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect hat This hat is perfect to protect the face as well as the neck from sun rays. One can shape it easily according to their need and personal taste. It is also elegant, Despite its "largeness", this hat is not heavy at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protective and glamorous! This hat not only keeps my pale, Irish, skin pale, but I get compliments on it every time I go out. I bought it in blue, black and red.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye catching addition I got this hat in April and I’m in love with it. It’s got great sun coverage and really makes a statement. I can really feel the difference in sin protection compared to other hats I have. I’ve gotten tons of compliments on it as well. I think it’s going to be my go to hat for this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strikingly pretty! Bought this in Red. Very pretty. Very well made. Brim is huge so it will cover face and neck and provide shade for your shoulders too. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this hat! I was unsure about ordering this at first, as one size hats are usually too small for my large head. I went ahead and tried this and it fit perfectly! The fabric stretches just enough that I get a snug but comfortable fit. The chin straps helps in the wind and the shapeable brim is just perfect. It is a VERY big brim but that's exactly why I ordered it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely Huge Brim! Love this Poolside hat! Wanted the biggest brim I could find & this one is perfect. So fun being shapeable too! Nice comfortable material. “One Size” is always too big for my head but the chin strap solves that problem for me at the beach in the wind. 2 thumbs up from me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Concerned about limited color selections I have bought at least 4 of these over the years. Some colors had ties (royal blue) and some did not (black one and the purple one). The tie version is especially great for cruises or trips to the ocean. Negatives: I only wear the black one in my backyard because it looks like a witch hat because of the color and size. Concerned now you only have black, navy, white, and beige. Concerned the navy also might look like a witch hat and the white and beige might show the dirt quicker since also applying and reapplying sunscreen to other exposed skin. Please bring back the royal blue or purple color. Very disappointed of your color selection today when I went to order. Had issue with a couple of the hats with the top seams tearing apart. I mended them. Positives: The hat provides great face protection. The shape ability is the best I have seen in any hats of this brim size but eventually after several months of use it doesn't stay as good as new but still worth it. The ability for shaping helps protect from the sun in the car. Also good for those times when the sun isn't overhead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The drawstring is an awesome feature. Took this to Bora Bora and it was the best decision ever. I can tuck the drawstring under my hair in the back and the hat stays nice and secure. I've worn this on the beach, on the boat, while floating the river, and it's always great. keeps the sun off my neck and shoulders too. It's also been rolled up into a clump in my luggage and rebounds just fine. want to get more colors!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Embarrassing! I so wanted to love this hat. But it looks ridiculous. When I first tried it on, my husband and son both laughed at me. I purchased it in black so I kinda look like a witch. I have a 7"+ sun hat that I love, so I am not sure why this hat looks like it needs its own zip code. I will be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice I am so extra happy with my hat. Best hat I have. Shapable but not to constantly mush it... I take good care of my hat and I had it for few years. If you just trash it around I can see it won't last. I folded to pack for travels, when I open its wide and shady... I HAVE THE WHITE AND still looks new. After having this had I don't see why people have hats that don't keep shade. I joke around saying my hat is saccutally my sun umbrella, I get lots of compliments on it. Looks very fancy. Love it. But I can see how it can be annoying for some...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Functional Hat I love this hat. Whenever I wear it, I get complements. It not only looks good but it provides maximum coverage for my face from the harmful rays of the sun.
