    Best hat for the job! - 11/13/2014
    By: from Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria also Sunderland UK

    Here in Pto. Rico, Gran Canaria it is hot and has kind of powerful sun in a cloudless sky, found in few places. As a keen walker, but vulnerable to the sun's rays, I find my hat so light to wear and I am happy that the wide rim is protecting my facial features and ears. Still applying sun cream, I confidently strike out walking every morning for a couple of hours. I would not venture out without my hat on, but initially I often forgot and left it in our apartment... I never got more than 50m before I realised and returned for it. So is it the best hat for the job, Certainly is! The fit, band, lightness and room above your scalp is just right! I would recommend this hat to anyone without reservation.

    Favorite golf hat - 10/22/2014
    By: from CT

    My husband had to have another of these after the inside band stretched and began to irritate his forehead. He was not interested in any other hat. When returned to the local Orvis, one was sent to our home, but came damaged. We returned that one, and another came in perfect condition and was very welcomed. The sales help were very accommodating and efficient.

    One flaw hat - 9/9/2014
    By: from Glenwood Springs, Colorado

    Great summer hat with one flaw: the crown isn't high enough. I like the hat a lot but the crown literally rubs the top of my head. I've owned a lot of straw hats and never had a fit just like this. Love the color, love the look, the brim, the weave, coolness, etc. but it's not a decent fit.

    Wanted a hat for summer that would be substantially made, nice appearance, fit comfortably. Love it. Have added a few self tied flies for embellishment to make it my own.

    I don't normally wear hats but have been looking for this style for years. Now I wear it every time I leave the house. I am blond and have light skin so this hat is PERFECT for my face and ears. Great Product !!!

    Great hat!! - 8/8/2014
    By: from Athens, Georgia

    I purchase this hat for myself often but this one was a repeat gift for my good friend - UGA head coach. He loves the hat and always lets me know when his is wearing out. I have done this for him for many years. He wears it for all practices and has been photographed in it often. Great hat for me and coach..

    Perfect Hat - 8/8/2014
    By: from Tampa, FL

    This is a great hat. Classy yet casual. The brim is the perfect width to keep your face out of the hot sun. Hat runs true to size. I can wear it with shorts, slacks or even a sports coat. Goes well with everything. Very comfortable to wear and looks great in every occasion. It's now my favorite hat.

How to measure for a hatFind your hat size easily! Here’s how you can find your correct hat size quickly and easily: Using a cloth measuring tape, measure around your head at the point at which your hat normally rides (approximately 1” above your ear). Pull the tape tightly enough to get an accurate measurement, but do not pull it too tightly. If your measurement is between two hat sizes, order the larger size.

Your hat should fit securely, but not tightly—if you shake your head back and forth vigorously, the hat should stay put. The same goes for bending forward: if you bend down, your hat shouldn’t slip off. Make sure, though, that your hat doesn’t bind or pinch. If it does, we recommend you exchange it for the next larger size.

Your hat will break in with wear. Over time, your hat will conform to the unique shape of your head, creating a one-of-a-kind fit. With proper care, your hat will provide many years of faithful service.
