I developed a treatable skin cancer, and now must wear full protection whenever I am out in the So Cal sun. My go-to has been the Adventure Hat, and I do love it. But I also wanted something different on the hat rack. This hat is super comfortable (light and cool) as well as versatile. Great for driving too as the smaller bill works better in the car. They really thought of everything here, with the options for the neck cape, flaps for the vents, and foldable bill. Love it. Because the brim isn't as large as the Adventure Hat, I do get more sun on the lower part of my face, but closing the cape is always an option. Great hat.

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 😎
