XLRG for sure, but that's what I need
on July 25, 2014
I like the simple style of this hat. I found that the cord is comfortable against my skin and beard. The cord latch is easy to use and holds securely. I wore the hat at the slightly windy Bolsa Chica beach here in southern California and it would have kept the sun off my head if the sun had decided to come out that day. The hat survived the wind no problem. The weave of the straw is not real tight, so a bit of sun does make it through the cracks. I'm not bald so that's ok for me. The top most peak of my hat has a few bits of straw that have cracked and peeled. That's not a big deal, yet, and I hope it never becomes a big deal. The outer perimeter of the underside of the hat has a lot of free straw ends that can catch on things. It hasn't been a problem yet, but I can see how it could be. This hat fits my XLRG head like XLRG hats from Goorin do, so I would say this hat is more of an XLRG than a one size fits most.
