    My perfect hat! - 6/28/2013
    By: from Wales

    I bought this hat for fishing and for work (I work outdoors). I've found it comfortable, regardless of which way I wear it and provides good protection from the sun. It also seems to be well made and reasonably priced for such a quality product.

    Hat as not advertised - 6/27/2013
    By: from Suffolk

    Disappointed in Canoe Hat since on receiving the product it bears little resemblance style wise and colour wise to the photo advertised product on ORVIS website! I have asked agent to investigate discrepancy in product to that as advertised.

    Disappointed - 3/1/2013

    Considering the premium price, I would rate the quality as only average, but my biggest disappointment is the very light yellow khaki colour which is nothing like the nice green colour shown in the photograph.

    Total disappointment - 9/1/2012

    The hat that arrived beared little resemblance to that which is in the catalogue, the proportions and colour were wrong and the quality was poor.

    Canoe/Fishing hat - 7/17/2012
    By: from Cornwall

    Brilliant hat although called a canoe packable, it is arguably an excellent fishing packable. Ideal for hot sunny days for keeping the sun off your eyes or alternatively your neck and ears. Superb quality at an affordable price I look forward to using it for years.

    Summer hat for kayakers - 7/13/2012
    By: from Nottingham, England

    Excellent hat for a hot summers day paddling as the extra large brim provides great shade. It is a very light hat and has a tendancy to blow off. If it had a chin strap I'd have given it 5 stars.

    This hat is excellent for those who want to avoid the sun in their eyes and are also looking for all round cover. I am very pleased with this purchase

    I'm torn with this hat; I bought it for walking the dogs and have it rolled in my pocket but it's shape prevents it being for general use. The hat's extreme shape makes it perfect for sun and rain protection while fishing though. Well made but not for me.

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.
