It’s a perfect sun protection hat for gardening and around pool! Gabe it a 4 instead of 5 since it’s 44% paper and cannot get wet. Mine blew into pool the other day. I rescued it quickly. Seems to still be okay albeit a bit stiffer and dry.
"One size fits all" doesn't work for my small to medium size head. I was so excited to find a stylish hat that was adjustable, but sadly, the slipknot adjustment doesn't hold. Within 5 minutes it had loosened and the hat was resting on the tops of my ears.
I enjoy this hat other than it is too large for my head and it needs a chin strap. I have asked repeatedly for Sunday afternoons to provide this hat in a smaller size but they refuse. The foam sticky things they can add to your order to adhere inside the hat fall off and your hair gets stuck to them. They don't help.
I wore this hat every sunny moment at the beach and on the boat. Loved the look of the straw and the neutral color. Classic! Wore it until it blew overboard. Could use a pretty chin strap.
I love these hats. I wear them everyday it isn't raining since I have to protect my skin at all costs. They are stylish and pack away with ease. I abuse them quite a bit, crushing, smooshing, wearing them in all sorts of tough situations and they last through the beating. At the end of the year I buy a new one to get a stiffer brim again and then use my old one for truly rough excursions. Living in Oregon water can be tricky with woven hats. I've never worn mine in a true rainstorm, but a quick sprinkle doesn't seem to hurt it. Everyone loves it and can't believe that it is made partially from paper! I love the wide brim so it protects all angles of my face and neck. It is a must have for sunny days.
The only tough thing for me (I have this problem with every hat) is that it is too big. A little foam inside though helps it fit better.
