Rated 4 out of 5 by A must for long, sunny hikes I wore this hat while hiking Mt. Whitney last month. The extra long bill definitely helps save your eyes from too much squinting, though I still wore sunglasses, too. The flap is nice and works fairly well, but we had mild winds and I found myself holding it in place to keep my neck protected. There's gotta be a better way to keep it in place, maybe another small strap that you could snap across, or out of the way when not in use. The bungee clip at the back certainly served its purpose when a large gust of wind blew the hat clean off with no time to react. I have a smaller head and was able to cinch down enough to fit. Of course properly-sized hats are always preferred, this was great for the price. September 9, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by best hat for working in the sun I have an earlier version of this cap SPF +30. It is the best cap I ever bought for working in the sun. I can spend all day working in the sun and the long bill and neck flap keep me from getting burnt. I have had the cap for 4 to 5 years. I just throw it in the washer when it gets dirty, hang it up to dry and it just keeps on protecting my head. So glad to see a newer version but all the same extras. Please never stop making this cap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A good fishing hat This hat runs true to size. It offers good protection to the back of your neck and ears. No sun burning => less risk of skin cancer. I like the adjustable cord inside the hat. When the wind picks up you can cinch it down tight so it won't blow off. The extended bill really helps keep the sun out of your eyes. A good fishing hat at a reasonable price. May 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better Than Sun Block For some apparent reason I am very sensitive to the sun, especially my extremities such as my head, arms and legs. This particular head gear is great when I am working in the sun. It prevents my forehead and neck from blistering. I just love it. April 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Needs improvement. I really like the hat. However, I would make the following modifications: First-make it slightly larger to fit folks with a larger head - like me! Second-redesign the cap so the flap can be stowed if the wearer doesn't want it hanging down (maybe a Velcro pouch). February 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Functionality and Comfort I fish from a boat under intense direct sunlight. This hat is perfectly suited to the conditions of heat and light that I experience. The flap offers additional protection to the back of the head while the extra long peak provides needed eye shade when looking in the direction of the sun. November 19, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by VERY HOT Looks good, fits well, very comfortable until I get outside. It doesn't breathe. Outside in the sun it gets very hot and is very uncomfortable to wear. Should have spend the extra money and gotten the coolhead ballcap III. June 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Durable Protection I have a lot of skin damage issues from years in the sun. I now wear as much protective clothing as possible. So I use Columbia sun protection shirts and this style hat. I've got one in the tan color I've been using on a landscaping project at the house. It gets hard daily use, sometimes gets really grubby and was with me all summer. It breathes well enough to keep from being unbearable even in the hot Georgia summer. I've managed to work outdoors and not have any sun issues. When it gets dirty, I toss it into the washer and it comes out looking almost new. The bill holds shape just fine. I liked it so well, I decided to get the same hat in a different color. January 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It... Great head protection So I have been using this cap for almost 6 months now. waited til it has gotten warmer to write my review. It has been great at keeping me cool and protecting my head, face and neck from the Florida sun for 4 hours plus. This material is "cooler" than my old pfg hat. I like the longer bill to protect the face. Am planning on getting another one soon. May 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tamiami hats The service was informative with prompt delivery. I already had one of the hats and it has served me well. I only wish there were more colors from which to select. May 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hat with great shading features I use this hat while shooting in outdoor competitions. The extended bill & neck flap provide excellent coverage from the hot sun. extended also reduces glare significantly. The hat is very light. Neck flap material is soft & smooth. I just wish it had more color selections. December 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tamiami Cachelot II Have used this particular product for a number of years. The various features are very useful and that is why I keep one or two on hand. I live in a very warm climate and the ultraviolet protection is quite necessary. The collar clip is a nice touch to keep the hat with you in high winds, and the neck protection is the primary reason I buy this product. It is light weight and suits my needs perfectly. I get many inquiries as to where others can get one. I recommend it highly. November 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatest hat for sun and fun!!!!! I use my hats mainly for golf and fishing and they are just great. They are so light and form fitting that you don't realize they are on. My friends all want one. August 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tamiami hat good sun hat This hat was just what I was looking for to replace an older one that stopped being as sun protective as is used to be. The size fits. The flaps stay down or go back down when the wind slows or stops. This hat does not get blown off my head when the boat is moving. The one I have is sand or tan in color not the darker onepictured when writing the review. July 17, 2012
