A year ago, I bought the Sunday Afternoons Sun Guide Cap in sandstone to wear for AverXise: The art of flying, training, and tropical birds. I train macaws & moluccan cockatoos. Great! Does everything I ever wanted a sun hat to and looks handsome! I recently use the same hat to go shark fishing with.
I look so good wearing it! Handwash nicely! For fear that it will stain & odor, I decided to buy three more for styling: one in white, olive, and sandstone for backup.
I've had this hat for a few years — love its lightness and style, and sun protection as far as it goes. What's missing is a cape large enough, with a couple more snaps, for better nose and mouth protection. I've had skin cancer on my nose, so it's an issue for me. I know I'm not alone. Other hats/scarves/neck gaiters are dumb-looking or too hot. This hat is so cute and has such potential if only the designer would design in an option for more lower-face protection!.
the best hat in the world!

Bought this for hiking two years ago after moving to Arizona. Absolutely the best 🌞 coverage out there. Oh, and did I mention how nice and light it is 😎
I bought an original guide hat from a flea market many years ago and it finally wore out with holes on the top maybe due to washing it the washing machine. A few years ago I bought this newer version and like it also although I wish the neck covering would not hang down so low. The original did not hang this low. I'm buying another one now because I like the style and the removable snap covering. I also like the snap style closing around your face when wearing it. Thus you are pretty much covered up without extra material as in some other brands with a 360 degree covering around your head.
