Rated 5 out of 5 by Practical Active Dad Didn't know it was a woman's hat (says so on the size tag, though) I'm a 36 year old dude and I'm bald. I do not want to have chunks of skin cancer removed from my head, face, or neck, so I keep myself covered, thus the hat. Oh, and I'm a 2x Army combat veteran (Iraq in 2003, 2004-2005)(civilian now). I used to wear my desert tan Army Boonie caps ALL the time, but have worn them out and the brim is getting too short. My family and I like to travel around the world and sometimes places are hot and sunny. We're active, too (parasailing, sailing, zip lining, hot air ballooning, etc.) It's a great fit, gets the job done, offers 30 SPF, and it saves me 10-15 minutes that I would normally spend putting on sunscreen. Did I mention I have 5 kids? We keep covered and spend more time in the pool, rivers, lakes, etc., and can do so without toxic sunscreen poisoning aquatic life/ourselves. Hat is great, wet or dry. Doesn't look girly, either, in my opinion. Color is great, too. well-designed. Dark color (navy blue) on underside of the brim (absorbs albedo, or reflected light from water surface), helps with "glare". Adjustable inside headband, which is great because everyone ISN'T the same dome size. Adjustable chin strap for those windy days on the beach or outside mowing the grass/doing yard work. The wide brim saves my nose and neck from burning as well. I spent 7 hours at the pool with my kids and was NOT burned. That was this hat's true test. We were at the pool and the hat was frequently wet (soaking wet....I swam with it on, even underwater, snorkel style!) It earned my respect. By the way....The display at Dick's where I found this hat was a train wreck. It was a mess of hats. I grabbed it because of its features. I could care less if it's a woman's hat. It will keep me from burning in Costa Rica, Ocean cruises, and when mowing/pulling weeds. It'll keep my face dry in downpours, drizzles, and good old Ohio weather. Wish I had it when I was in Playa del Carmen (Mexico) and Dominican Republic. It's a good hat. See for yourself. July 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by LAXmom protection and style! My skin is very sensitive to the sun. After applying spf 70 to my face every 1-2 hours I still get a burn. i finally gave in and went looking for a hat.I looked at many hats and found them all to be very manly looking. This hat was perfect and i love the wave detail going around it. The brim of the hat isn't as wide as others 3.5in vs 5in which i preferred since i felt it didn't block as much peripheral vision. I will be using this hat while at my son's sporting events and at the beach. I tried it out today at an outdoor party and received many compliments on it. June 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Boatingbetty Keeps the sun off! I didn't know if I would enjoy wearing a sunhat! My husband and I are avid boaters and with aging, my face is showing signs of sun exposure!!! I bought this sunhat mainly because of glowing reviews! I am SO GLAD I chose this!!!!! Very light but enough coverage to cover my entire face!!! Folds up nice and compact without wrinkles!!!! LOVE, LOVE IT!!! June 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimbo in Ahwatukee Perfect Hat I bought this hat to go tubing on the Salt River. Because I would be in the sun and wind all day, I needed a water-resistant, lightweight hat with a neck strap. This hat fit the bill perfectly! It has a cute stitch detail on the brim and is black under the brim. I looked at a lot of hats and am so happy I bought this one! July 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ge Love this hat. Great hat for shading the face. Bought this for a week long paddling trip on a river and it was perfect. I liked the cord around the neck, too. June 21, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by starlight perfect I have a difficult time finding hats that fit and block the sun. This hat is adjustable and blocks the sun on face and neck. May 26, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucky Great product, good looking hat Very comfortable. Wide brim for sun protection, washes well. Love this hat! October 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elle G Sun hat I have a small head and the additional adjustment strap in the headband allows me to "snug-up" the fit, so I seldom need the chin strap adjustment which holds hat on in a wind if needed. Color goes with anything, and the wide brim is a plus in the intense Fla. sun. UPF a must for me as I have had multiple skin cancer events. May 29, 2014
