Wow!! I adore this hat. I live in South Florida where ball caps just don’t cut it. I have Lupus and cannot be exposed to much sun but just love being outside. This hat allows me to stay healthy while still enjoying an outdoor lifestyle. I can’t say enough good! I love it so much I ordered my toddler and husband one!

I've worn this hat for many years. When hiking in desert heat I wet the entire hat for evaporation cooling. Despite my years of poor treatment: wetting, scrunching, tossing in my pack, it continues to look good and function GREAT.
I love this hat. I take it everywhere I will be in bright sunlight. It has protected my sunburn prone face and neck for years. In fact, it protects your face and neck from downpours. I agree that it can be hot, as I have trouble getting it to fit my small head, hence the air vents are covered by my head. I have several of these hats in other colors and highly recommend the hat. I get compliments on the hat everywhere I go.
I disagree with Sharon's review. I live in Tucson (desert SW), and this is my go-to hat to keep the sun off my head, face, and ESPECIALLY the back of the neck when I go out walking. I passed another guy along the wash who was wearing the same identical hat, so sorry to say, Sharon, that means you are out-voted two to one. If you want a true "vented" hat in the desert SW you pretty much have to go with a straw hat. All other hats will press against your head in some place or another, including this one. I have a long neck and if I am not wearing a collared shirt the back drape of this hat will not reach all the way to a t-shirt collar-line. But could you imagine how much sun would be hitting my neck with a regular 360 degree brim? The problem with brim hats is the sun is not always straight overhead. In the summer it gets hot quick, and in the winter the sun is lower in the sky. So that's why I like this hat - it gives sun protection when the sun is other than directly overhead.
Well, I should have listened to the doctors years ago when they warned that my light skin, light hair, blue eyes don't mix well with the So Cal sunshine. Got treatable skin cancer (thank goodness) and was given the riot act, cover up. The doctor recommended this hat, and I couldn't be more pleased. I looked at other brands, but tried this first. I like it so much I now have a bunch of different colors, and my wife pulls one out when gardening too. This hat provides great protection and is so light I barely know it's on. And when it's windy, cinching the drawstring keeps it secure. And it looks pretty good too. Great product!
