Top Customer Reviews
Ball caps are very popular, but they don't shade the back of your neck or sides of your face, and can actually pull hair back that might otherwise cover and protect your ears. There are a host of broad-brimmed solutions, but they each have their drawbacks.
Straw hats, "lifeguard" hats, and Panama hats are woven from a variety of "unprocessed" plant materials (various grass stems, palms fronds and similar plant leaves). Made from renewable resources, light-colored, lightweight, and naturally well-ventilated, straw hats are terrific... while they last. But, there's the rub: longevity. Don't get me wrong, straw hats protect the wearer from summer sun and heat just fine. But, if I may paraphrase the great Yogi Berra's malaprop ("It ain't the heat, it's the humility"); I'd say, with straw hats, "it ain't the heat, it's the humidity." Exposed to sweat or rain, straw hats quickly lose their shape. Add some abrasion from branches passed during a hike, and the hat most exposed edges get ragged looking in a hurry.Read more ›
I wish the ventilation was more like air-conditioning because, in case I didn't mention it, I hate the summer heat and I hate to perspire, but otherwise this hat is perfect.
The brim is pretty flexible and will flop around in the wind. If you don't wear the chinstrap when it's windy out, expect to chase the hat unless you have quick hands. The brim does give you good coverage though.
It is made in China, so if that's an issue you'll want to look elsewhere. Other than that, if you have a need for a good sunhat, this is a good choice.

This hat works really well for blocking the sun and it's not so thick and heavy that it's hot to wear. I discovered this weekend that it works well in the rain, too. Read morePublished 4 days ago by D. Anderson
