Rated 3 out of 5Â by BWeaves 1. I liked this hat, but. . .
2. The neon orange was a bit too intense for me.
3. The hat arrived in a box inside another box, so I was expecting the hat to be perfect. However, the inner box was too small, and the hat was smashed into it. The hat unfolded, but there were several dents in the crown that would not come out. The hat is supposed to be crushproof. It's not quite. Strangely enough, the rim uncrushed better than the crown of the hat.
4. There's an inner grograin ribbon to hold the shape.
5. The rim kept hitting me in the back of the neck funny.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Elenita72 Perfect Summer Hat . . .
. . . with one caveat.
I love the design of this hat. It's simple, classy, and the green band is dope. I particularly love that there is a wire inserted all the way around the outer brim so that whatever shape you put it in, it will stay. I've spent way too much money on "floppy summer hats", only to be constantly frustrated with flaps that flop in my face. Very annoying when you are pushing a stroller and have no hands.
The only little thing that would make this hat perfect, is a tie thing on the inside to make the hat smaller. I use it while riding my bike too, and am afraid it will fly off. Hopefully I can find a hat maker here in Japan who can deal with it. The summer sun is brutal here, and I'm really looking forward to rockin' this hat!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ellan Great sun protector!
Just bought this hat to take with me to a trip to Palm Springs and it was perfect! Just the right size to shade the face and neck, but not big enough to look like you are being swallowed by it. And even in the desert heat, it did not make me sweat as some hats do. I also love the pop of colour the rim adds and yes - you can fold and pack this in to your bag and just "restructure" it when you take it out to wear.
