I bought this hat for my sister whose head is a little smaller than mine. Based on the size chart, the LARGE size should have been too small for my head. I also contacted the company to see if they had a XL, but they assured me that this hat did not come in that size. Image my surprise when the hat arrived and the size inside the band was L/XL and was more than large enough to fit my head. I love the look. The only thing that saddens me is that this hat must not get wet; it is 90% paper. Now I will need to get another hat for my sister because I am keeping this one for myself.
I just fell in love with this hat at REI. I measured my head to make sure i bought the correct and I was right in between a M and L...I decided to go with the L. Sometimes hats give me headaches and I figured with the adjustable band inside, it would be perfect....it was! I've gotten so many compliments on it.
I just came back from Mexico City. While there I toured Teotihuacan, the ancient pyramids nearby. There you are at 7000 feet and exposed to significant UV light. This hat was perfect. I shaded my head, face, and neck. It was also well ventilated in the heat there. My group climbed all 3 major pyramids and walked almost 8 miles. This was the perfect hat for this tour. I'm a big fan now.
I found this hat at REI and love it.... only down side is my head gets cold on the winter...
Now looking for a warmer hat that is very similar.
Great Products for protective yourself from the UV rays of the Sun. I got normal hats but would not work with me but with Sunday afternoon's hats totally different and worth a bit extra money. And i trust it because from here
