Living in Florida, a hat is essential! I have many ballcaps but they do not protect my neck and ears. Rather than buy yet another hat, this gives me the protection I need using what I already own!
I plan to use the hat for spending long hot days in the Philippines & here in Virginia , and the Charter is definitely going to help. The look of it is just perfect. I like the adjustable size and the comfort. Great fit.
This is my favorite hat from Sunday Afternoons. Its got a really nice shape that seems to be built into the hat, so the crown is never floppy and always looks great. I also like the brim because it is wide and has good sun protection, but not so wide that it looks dorky. Overall its just a great hat for looking good and staying out of the sun. Highly Recommended.
PS: I noticed that the brim looks better if I give it front to back right before I put it on. Also, this hat seems to run kind big so you might want to order a size down if you are on the border.
This is a great looking hat which is very light and cool. I use it to protect me from the sun as much as possible when I run on these warm Texas Spring days (I'll use the Adventure Hat with the coming devastating hot July/August months). My problem was the sizing. I have a medium head size 7-1/8, but the Charter hat begins at M/L 7-1/2. And though adjustable it wasn't enough to quit feeling like someone whose pants are too big and uses a belt too make it fit -it is too large to be adjusted. I was going to return the hat for a smaller size, but there is no S/M size. I kept it, but do not recommend anyone to buy this hat if your hat size is Medium; this is really a Large adjustable Charter hat.
I bought this hat because of an upcoming vacation during which I will be out in the sun a lot. I am very folliclely challenged and needed something beside a baseball cap to protect my head. This hat is perfect. It is lightweight enough to be comfortable and wide enough to protect my face and ears. I am between a medium and large and found that the medium was perfect with just a little adjustment on the adjustable inside. While my adult children think it's silly, I think it's perfect.
