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.
Own this hat since 2008 for the Florida beachs then relocated to Arizona and it's still going strong. Glad to see you still offer it Definitely getting a extra one.
