Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whitney Great hat! Easy fitting, good size, and durable
This hat is awesome. At just the right size bill, it keeps sun out from every overhead angle. it also is true to size and even in windy areas the neck strap can be tightened so it never flies off your head. Also is very durable and doesn't lose shape after getting wet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricG A perfect desert gardening hat
I got this hat for my wife after I bought one for myself 2 years ago. We had moved to the high desert to a property with a large garden and I needed a hat not just to shield my eyes but as much of my body as well, because the sun always shines and it can reach 100.
I tried a cowboy hat but it cast too small a shadow. A sombrero was next, and while its shade was great, so was its weight. And there is now way you can safely wear a sombrero in the high winds we get, unless you want to impersonate a tumbleweed.
This hat is just right. After hundreds of hours of use it still looks great. It is sturdy and even offers some crash protection from low hanging branches, a serious hazard to any hat restricting your view upwards.
The ideal hat for gardeners in my part of the world

One of my hobbies is gardening. My canvas hat was so old and rotted from sun exposure that that the top came off. This hat is great because it has a hold-down string that adjusts readily and holds its setting so that the hat will not blow off in even a pretty brisk wind. The brim is plenty wide to keep the sun off my ears, neck and face to help prevent sunburn as I am fair-skinned and burn easily. The brim tips up and down as needed to allow a better front view when stooping. Being of straw construction, a bit of ventilation is provided to help deal with hot weather.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ben62 Great Brim!
I was looking for a wide brimed hat for working in the sun during the summer months. This hat has a really wide brim that will keep the sun off the back of my neck. The only drawback that I see with this hat is the lack of a headband inside the hat. Your head I'd right up against the wicker. To solve this problem I wear a bandana. When its real hot I can wet the bandana for additional cooling. Good hat for my needs.

This hat is well made and durable. Great hat to use when working in the garden or doing lawn work. Great for blocking the sun and keeping you from getting sun burned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maggieb Love this Hat!
My husband wasn't sure about this hat at first as it wasn't a style he usually favored. One time wearing it made him fall in love with it. In fact I need one too. It is really well made. The brim is wide enough that it shades your neck and face well. And best of all it is cool to wear. Must have for working outside in the heat of a Southern summer!

This hat provides great coverage from the sun. The only thing I will do the next time is get one a size larger.
