Thank you for your feedback.
The hat fit perfectly and was great as it protected him from the sun and dried quickly.
He likes it a lot and the strong chin strap does not bother him (I was worried it would!)
My son is 4, the medium cinched down just a little and fits great.

Verified Purchase
I bought this for my almost 4year old. He likes it and it has a wide brim. I bought the small which barely fit. There is a size guide which came with the hat and says small is ages 1-3, medium is 3 -6, so I am exchanging it.

The chin strap is removable and even in the 2 seconds he tried it on, my son removed it a few times.

I like that it will be cool in the heat as opposed to the heavy cotton bucket hats for kids.

Best available hat I could find of its kind reasonably priced. The photos showed 2 different hats , one checkered and one solid. My pewter hat is checkered.

Size Large is a little big for my 7 year old but certainly wearable using the adjustment straps. It's a decent hat and I'd likely buy it again.

Here is the official Sizing Chart from the tag which was attached to the hat: (sorry for the blurry photo)
Kids XS = Age 1 18.5 Inches 47 CM
Kids S = Age 1-3 20 Inches 51 CM
Kids M = Age 3-6 21 Inches 53 CM
Kids L = Age 6-12 22.5 Inches 57 CM

bought this after losing an awesome REI hat we had for about a year. this one looked the closest in pics. very difficult to find a lightweight, sun hat in November. even in san diego, CA. this is great. good size brim. nice that it is adjustable. i got the large for my large-headed 3 yo (he's the size of a 4-5 year old). it has a little room to grow and i can tighten it to keep it on. he still needs the chin strap at this age but doesn't like it tightened to the chin. it's pretty neutral. i got the sandstone color which fortunately wasn't as light in color as it looked on-line. very satisfied. hoping we don't lose it, contemplating getting a back up in case.

Size: MediumColor: 913-Sandstone Verified Purchase
This hat is GREAT! My 18-month old son has a large head - he is in the 99th percentile for head size and I always have a hard time finding hats that fit him. The medium fits his head perfectly when the elastic is tightened a bit around his head. With plenty of room to expand, I am sure he will be wearing this for a long time to come!
The stone color is just that - a light beige which we found kept cool in the hot sun. The material is very light, breathes well, and dries quickly. The brim holds up well so it never sags into his eyes and is durable enough to stand up to crumpling and stuffing into beach bags. Overall I would highly recommend this hat!

Bought this hat for my 2-year-old son. He loves it, and so do I. Got the 3-to-6 years size because his head is large and because I hate spending money on something he can only wear a short time. In addition to SPF, this hat also features an adjustsble yet comfortable hidden band around the head and another cord under the chin, so it should fit him for at least a few years and not blow off when we visit the beach. Great for sun protection and absolutely adorable!

The medium fits my 2 year old well and with room to grow. There is an adjuster to make the part around the head tighter. We wear this when we go hiking and it does great to keep the sun out of his eyes and the ticks out of his hair. Great product!

If you have a smaller head you can be an adult and use this...I can even fit a medium on but the large is great for a 7 1/8 size head....lightwieght....love the two different mechanisms to keep the hat on my head during adventures. all synthetic fibers so drys quickly....keeps the sun off the right places!
