With pretty sensitive skin, I needed better protection from the sun. All I had were baseball caps and those basically only shade your eyes, but don't really give you any protection at all. Plus my head would always get hot when I'm wearing a cap. The lifeguard hat is a cool option. It looks good, not at all like those stereotypical grandpa beach hats. This is a very cool looking hat and perfect for a day at the beach or whenever you're sitting out in the sun. It provides great coverage because of its size (it's about 17" from side to side), so your entire face and neck will be completely shaded. The underside of the hat is a black cloth, which I think is supposed to prevent glare. And while using it, I have a pretty glare-free experience, so I guess it works. Though I don't know how much glare I'd be getting without the black. Either way, I like it. The drawstring is a nice touch, too, in case you get caught in a windy day.

Like anything made of straw, durability isn't going to be its strong suit. The straw, particularly at the top of the hat, has cracked a bit, though it's still very usable. All the straw on the brim is perfectly intact, though. If and when the hat does wear out, I'll definitely be buying another one of these.

I ordered this hat to wear while gardening, etc. in Phoenix, Arizona's hot summer sun. Awesome hat indeed, & it even fits my generously sized head quite well!

One feature that does not seem to be mentioned however, is that the under-belly of the brim is covered in black fabric. On one hand it would have been nice to know this prior to ordering, on the other it was a nice surprise as the dark underside reduces the fierceness of light reflected by the hat itself. :-)

I hope this puppy holds up well, however I expect as with all grass sun-hats I've owned (as a horticultural professional, and avid vegetable-gardener there have been many) that its presentable lifespan will be somewhat limited.

This is a BIG hat in more ways than one. First of all it is very wide. Great for keeping the sun off your neck, but it is also big in size. One size fits all is not always true if you have a small head. I wear a size 7 1/4 and this hat came down over my ears.

First of all, I did not buy this hat from Amazon, but rather a surf shop that I went to during vacation. This hat lasted through an ENTIRE summer in the California desert. I wore it every single day at my job (landscaping) and it was a true lifesaver (I would have gotten hit in the head with a piece of rebar, but luckily the brim of the hat deflected it). The brim is so large that it protects your head and neck completely from the sun. The top part of the hat is all straw (allowing a breeze to dry your sweaty head off) while the brim is straw with a piece of black fabric underneath. The hat has a slight downward angle and a chinstrap that helps it not blow off when it gets windy. The hat itself is still in perfect shape and I'm about to celebrate its second birthday.

I wish a picture of the inner brim was included but I like it, I suppose it's guaranteed coverage from the sun 😎
The straw weaving on the other hand could be better..

I purchased this for my husband who is a pool guy and he is in love with it!It loves the linear on the inside and said that it keeps the sun off his head while working his long hours.

ok so I read the reviews on this hat and thats what made me choose this..however previously I purchased the quicksilver version of this and was not pleased due to the thinness of the straws(was not durable at all). My head size is 7 5/8 so don't worry about this hat not fitting..fits fine!!! has cloth material on the inner lid of hat. Overall its fits feels and looks good. Definitely not bad at all for the price as well...I highly recommend this hat..JUST IN TIME FOR THE SUMMER!
