This is easily the stupidest hat ever designed for hiking in hot weather or for bird watching (the material, with the flap down is incredibly noisy!) The crown of the hat sits on top of your head, which means the side 'vents' collapse and do nothing. The sweatiest part of my head is always right by the supposed vents. It feels like being wrapped in plastic in the sun. The hat's only redeeming quality is that the flap does prevent sunburn on the neck. I will save it for winter only wear, but have had it with my head baking in this thing in the summer! I live at high elevation in the desert SW - maybe it works in milder climates or where the sun is less fierce, but it's a terrible, terrible hat here.
I really like my adventure hat. I have had it for several years. The front is a huge shade barrier even over your ears. The back protects your neck, but stays out of the way of the headrest when in the car. Recently I dumped over while kayaking and I lost my hat and sunglasses. After pulling the kayak to the side of the creek, I remembered the hat is supposed to float. So I went back closer to where I flipped over, and there was the hat! Floating. Alas the sunglasses were consumed by the water. I have to say, the hat dried quicker than my hair did. LOL.
I bought my Adventure sun hat about five months ago and I couldn't be happier!! I wear it most of the time when I outdoors playing pickleball [similar to tennis} for hours in the hot southern California sun...it gives me all the protection I need and the chin strap keep the hat in place even when I'm running around the court....the material is very light whch allow for good air flow and my face and especially my neck excellent protection from the sun....I only hope to see more colors for men and women......Wonderful hat !!!
Had to pin the ribbon adjustment, won’t stay
Ok. So you really need to be outside doing stuff to wear this hat, I will take to Egypt and look and be cool. The adjustable ribbon won’t stay in place so I used a safety pin. Won’t do for running errands, you will look way over the top.
