It comes in a poly bag, which is no frills, but also keeps the cost down. So no problem there.
Good ventilation for the head
Would be great for travel--backpacking, or anything where you wanted a hat and you would have to pack it. It does get a little crinkly, and if that bothers you, you could iron it on the lowest setting. They do not tell you to do that,so it would be at your own risk. But I did it and it worked fine with a cool iron.
The size is adjustable, which is nice, as you can never really get an exact fit for your head unless you go get an expensive hat--so this is a good solution.
Seems well made, good materials and well put together. Not a chintzy product.
None really--provided you know what you are buying. It is a lightweight sun hat with a floppy brim.
I am glad I got it and would do so again.
- Light weight
- Collapses to a small size for packing
- Good sun protection
- Adjustable fit with the use of the elastic draw string
- I wish it were somehow more stylish. But as far as sun hats go, this one looks pretty good.
Compared to the Tru-Spec hat, this Columbia hat is more expensive, lighter weight (2.8 ounces vs 3.8 ounces), and more breathable. The Tru-Spec hat uses the same fabric throughout, while Columbia uses a lightweight, part-mesh fabric on the top (more breathable) and a stiff fabric for the brim (less likely to droop over my eyes). The Columbia hat has 3 inch brims (vs 2.5 inches for Tru-Spec) for more sun coverage, though perhaps a little more bulky and more likely to snag tree branches. Tru-Spec is a poly-cotton ripstop, while Columbia is all nylon.
I have a larger head (size 7.5) and both hats fit me with plenty of room to spare. Both hats have a tightening cord in back, which works great. Both hats also have a chin strap, which is very handy in the wind.
Minus one star because the price for the Columbia hat is now $28 (was $18 when I bought it). The Tru-Spec hat is only $12. While the Columbia hat is a little more breathable, it is certainly not twice as good as the Tru-Spec hat.

In all seriousness, very lightweight, breathable, and durable. It's my second of these hats (my first is desert sand coloured in case I need to camouflage myself when fighting off bad guys in Egypt; this one was for mountain camouflage). And the strap is effective without you having to garrote yourself to stop it flying off in the wind. My one gripe is the slightly flimsy rim, which occasionally decided to buckle right over my eyes and blind me. If this is likely to annoy you, a study pith helmet might suit better.
It's lightweight and can be folded small enough to be stuffed into my trouser pocket or you can just let it hang behind your head. It's a hat for life.
