Thank you for your feedback.
The hats fit well, hold up over time and are priced well.
Great cap: comfortable, quality materials, excellent fit, cool to wear.
I now have three of these hats, use them exclusively on the trail, and probably won't switch brands again.

Size: One SizeColor: Black/Dark Grey Verified Purchase
The Pros: This is a well-ventilated, lightweight, sweat-absorbing cap that keeps the sun off your head and out of your eyes. The adjustment strap tucks away nicely out-of-sight; The adjustment is reasonably easy to accomplish, and the plastic adjusting clip holds the strap firmly in place.

The Cons: One very minor one. This hat is advertized to be a one size fits; but not necessarily a one-size-fits-all. This cap seems to favor a larger, hairier head. Since I have a small, folically-challanged head, I wear a size 7 hat, so I have to adjust the sizing strap on this cap so far back that the back of the cap puckers up significantly. At my age I don't need anything else puckering up behind me.

All that said, I'd still recommend this cap to anyone looking for a cap that's so comfortable that you'll probably forget your wearing it.

Size: One SizeColor: Evergreen/Dark Grey Verified Purchase
I purchased this Swift cap in both Evergreen/Dark Grey and Crocus/Dark Grey colors. I had only planned to keep one, but once I started wearing one and found out it was great, I decided to also keep the other color to coordinate with different outfits.

I also purchased the OR Switchback cap and find this Swift cap has many of the same benefits.

* very lightweight nylon material - feels like you are not even wearing a hat
* grey mesh liner/ exposed mesh sides make it very breathable
* adjustable strap with plastic slider, ponytail compatible
* shape fits well
* brim is made of a lightweight stiff plastic covered with the main fabric
* material folds up easily (although brim does not fold in half, hat still folds/scrunches up very small and can be put into a pocket or bag)
* machine washable! came out great out of the washing machine, easy care (I also put it in the dryer (NOT recommended - should line/air dry) intended for a few minutes and forgot to take it out so it was in the dryer a long time - it still came out great/new looking, an unexpectedly durable product)
* protects from the sun (UV blocking)
* available in many colors
* decent looking
* would be good for any outdoor activities or just daily wear
* unisex styling and fit - I cannot speak to how this fits on very large heads (it fits fine on typical female and male heads that I have tried this on)

A couple of comments on appearance... I did not like the somewhat prominent grey color "OR" embroidery on the evergreen cap, so I *carefully* removed the stitching with a seam ripper. I then steamed the area with an iron and machine washed it. You cannot even tell that the embroidery was there.

Size: One SizeColor: 472-Diablo/Dark Grey Verified Purchase
The cap was as described in the product description. The color 'diablo/dark grey" was a little different than I expected. But not game breaker. The cap has an airy mesh base. There is a nylon over layer from the brim to the back of the cap. This layer protects the top of you head as well as forehead from the sun. The mesh and the separate over layer provides a very well ventilated cap. The brim is firm and of adequate length to provide shade from the sun. It fits well and is adjustable.

Just what I was looking for. Protection from the sun. Yet a very light and well ventilated cap. It can also be washed. All in all a great "outdoors" hat for the summer months.

Size: One SizeColor: Khaki/Dark Grey Verified Purchase
Im bald/shaven and I live in Tallahasse, Florida. So needless to say I need to cover my head. The hat provides nice cover and the mesh sides give me plenty of ventilation to keep my head cool and allow the breeze to get in. The hats fit well, hold up over time and are priced well. Shipping was fast.

Size: One SizeColor: Khaki/Dark Grey Verified Purchase
Some of the baseball type hats for the outdoor adventures are the wrong type. Cotton absorbs water and ball caps don't just cut the expectations. This Swift hat is my favorite Go-to hat, I bought 2 of them! Every detail is well thought out. I have a medium sized head and when the hat is on, the bottom edges do not touch my ears and interfere with the sunglass arms already in contact with my ear. I love the colours also! The hat ventilates nicely during the summer and it's TAN panel does not attract and hold the heat in place. As I'm famous for saying about products I love; Don't buy ONE; Buy TWO of them! LOL

Size: One SizeColor: Khaki/Dark Grey
One size does not fit all. I wear a size 7.5 hat (large, but not extra large). This hat is a little too small for me. The width is OK, but the height is short. The rim comes down to half an inch above my ears, while most hats come down to my ears on the sides. I wish they made this hat in small and large sizes, like most other hats in this price range.

Size: One SizeColor: Khaki/Dark Grey Verified Purchase
I like everything about this hat, except looking in the mirror. Mine was purchased Jan 2013, and the brim is misshapen. Its very stiff and impossible, as far as I have been able to figure out, to reshape so its symetrical, rather than lopsided. The hat is comfotable and great for running; the headband absorbs my sweat and the material is great at wicking and evaporating the sweat away. So, functionally, I rate this 5 stars--I really do like it. But the misshapen brim is ridiculous and I should have returned it when it first arrived. I'd buy another one from a store where I can check it out first, but I'm not too anxious to try mail order again for this type of item.
