I own several styles of Kangol's and wish there were more reviews on them. It's tough to know how they're going to fit ahead of time since you usually can't go to the mall and try all the styles on. I own several of the Ventair 504's in size Large. I'm normally a 7 3/8 in New Era 5950 baseball caps for sizing reference.

The Ventair 504 is pretty much the flagship hat of the Kangol brand. If you're looking to buy one and only one Kangol, or need a place to start, this is the one to buy. It's a timeless classic. It can be worn by anyone from hip-hoppers to old-timers on the golf course.

The Ventair 504 is very comfortable, lightweight, and very breath-able. The vent-air holes go around the entire side of the hat so it never gets too stuffy. The hat is made of polyester, so it folds very flat for easy storage if you're taking it on vacation.

I find the hat quite roomy in terms of fit. You can pull it all the down to your eyebrows pretty easily without it looking funny/ stretching badly. Or you can wear it backwards. Or tilted to the side. They all look fine. Plus, they come in a variety of colors so you can always find a color to go with any outfit.

Overall it's the classic Kangol model for good reason.

I recieved my Ventair hat five days sooner than the assumed date that I would receive it. It surprised the heck out of me, that's to be certain. This hat has been very sturdy. Just some tips for new wearers: always handwash the hat and leave it drying on top of a bowl or something so it keeps its shape.

I have this cap in white, it's a great style for summer dress casual. Very comforable and cool, well-ventilated. I wear it all the time.

I live in Texas, so I can't wear my wool Kangols year-round. Most people here wear baseball caps, and there's a lot
to be said for a cap with a big bill on it in the blazing sun of Texas. I wear baseball caps, too, but sometimes you
wish you had a cool version of your winter Kangol. Enter this item, the (relatively) cool Kangol Tropic Ventair cap. It does offer
some protection for the eyes against the bright sunlight, and, true to its name, Ventair, it does vent away some of the
heat. You may recall that Davy Crockett said that, if he lost an election in Tennessee, the voters "may go to hell, and I
will go to Texas." Perhaps Texas is cooler in summer than the other choice, but he probably would have been delighted
to trade in his trademark coonskin cap for the Tropic Ventair Kangol, had it existed then.

This hat is excellent. I wear it all year around. Cool in the summer and yet warm enough for winter

I needed this hat for fast approaching summer. It fits great, is a great weight for warm weather, and it has classic Kangol styling. I'm delighted with my purchase, and I would recommend this hat to others.

Last year I ordered one of these caps in XL, believing it the be the largest size available. I generally look for 7 5/8 or 7 3/4 for a comfortable fit. The XL is smaller than that, but stretchy enough that I could wear it, especially after I gave it some vigorous "enlarging." That one was Grey, which is a very light shade that I'd call "sky blue on an overcast day."

This year I find some colors available in an XXL, and I ordered the Charcoal, which color is exactly what you'd expect. It's a terrific fit, just perfect. These hats are lightweight, well made, extremely well-ventilated, ideal for summer wear.

However, they are not soft and, of course, not lined. As a very bald person, I found it took awhile for the roughness of the fabric to wear off and not be a bit irritating to the scalp. Now I'll have to go through that again with the new one.

Worth it, though.

My husband was looking for a cap to wear golfing. He found it in the Kangol cap. It covers his bald spots and is cool. I don't know if it has improved his game.

The two (colors black & beige) Kangol Ventair 504 summer caps hats were purchased as a gift for my dad. He wears the hats often. The hats are easy to pack for trips and are very stylish and durable. Highly recommended!

I needed a hat that was comfortable and that I could wear for different occasions. The usual wool Kangol was a little too heavy and thick. Fortunately, this summertime style Kangol I found on Amazon was perfect.
