Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable This is the most comfortable hat I have ever owned. It is light but provides great sun protection. I will buy in other colours. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept me cool I went on a 10 mile run yesterday wearing this hat. The sun was very bright and I was obviously hot and sweaty. This hat kept me cool and dried quickly. Definitely moisture wicking and fast drying, perfect for hot summer days, intense workouts or long hikes. I plan to bring this throughout the summer for long runs and hikes. Great hat!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waste of money for intended purpose I bought two of these hats because I live outdoors in the summer months, hiking, fishing etc...and these do not keep anything cool. I bought them because I really like the other omni freeze things I have. Disappointed for sure and out money. As a regular hat it's fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job at Machu Picchu My husband and I each bought one of these hats for our trip to Peru, where the sun can be intense at high altitudes. We couldn't be happier with the performance! No sunburn, heads stayed cool, and the construction is lightweight and comfortable. Will definitely be putting these hats to good use here in the states! Definitely spring for the Omni Freeze, it's worth it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice hat The hat serves it's purpose. It's lightweight and fits nicely. I didn't notice a cooling effect, but I wasn't sweating very much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looks & UV protection- just a tiny complaint I love the cap. It is a one size fits all (for women). It definitely runs large with this criteria and is easy to adjust, but it would be excellent if you could tuck the long end of the adjusted band into the seam band of the cap as other of my baseball caps do. Other than that it is awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but the velcro?! Love it, but I had to take off a star for the adjustable strap, my hair keeps getting caught in the velcro!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love my hat!!! I love to walk the beaches, parks and my neighnorhood. I live in Florida with intense heat, sun rays, high humidy so my new hat helps protect me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Liked it I like the way this hat is simple and doesn't detract from what I'm wearing. But I didn't like that the sweat stains were hard to remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Just a cap" You may think this is "just a cap" but I find it very comfortable and feminine -- and I RARELY wear a "baseball cap!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cool head cap This may be the best outdoor adventure hat ever! Really fits well and it is very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Very comfortable hat that will keep you cool and keep the sun off your face. Thin material helps you forget it's even on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from satisfied These hats are just what I have been looking for for a decade, They fit so well. They are light on my head, not bulky. The sizing is such a great thing, for I have a small head and fine thin hair. Difficult to fit with normal hats, Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it - looks nice and cool I have to wear a hat due to sun sensitivity, but they get hot and itchy - not this one. It looks good with summer outfits as well. A bit more feminine than most baseball caps. I want a couple more in other colors.
