Rated 5 out of 5 by Thank you for offering two sizes! Love that this hat was available in my size (L/XL). It fits sleeker than a one-size adjustable hat would. Nice wide brim, perfect for sunny days. I would not call this hat "packable" as it wouldn't recover from being crushed. This hat is a step dressier from the Booney hats, and would look perfect with a sundress. November 5, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Strap Bleeds It was lightly raining and the strap around the hat- a brown color- bled into the off white of the hat. Also, the hat cannot be spot cleaned. Too bad; it had functioned well. June 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice and fashionable hat I picked up this hat in the cypress color from my local Sport Chalet's closing sale. I have a really wide head and usually wear an XL in hats. I was scared that the L/Xl wouldn't fit, but it fits nicely after all! I am going on my first archaeological dig this summer so I needed something with a wide brim because I have REALLY pale skin and need the coverage. I have only worn it on walks in my neighborhood so far, and it works well. I am not sure of the functionality on a dig yet (with how wide it is), but I am excited to try it out. What I like the most about it is that I can wear it any day for a fashionable look when I don't want to style my hair. Very nice. May 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hat Loved the fit and size of the brim to shade my face in the desert sun. I would recommend this hat for anyone seeking protection for face & neck. May 1, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not packable The hat is not really pack-able as claimed. Even if lightly folded into a big bag it wrinkles badly and the wrinkles do not fall out. Otherwise, it is a great hat. I like the leather neck tie that keeps the hat on in the wind. April 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely, well-made sun hat Love, liove, love this hat. It fits well and truly blocks the hot sun here in FL. Not too heavy, in fact, it is light-weight. Great protection and very fashionable. I ordered 2 in the nocturnal color-one for a friend. At this price, it makes a great gift. My husband thinks I have a big head, so I ordered the L/XL and it really fits well. It maintains its shape as well. Hope this helps! Buy it, you won't be sorry! April 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hat for travel I've owned this hat for about 5 years...Bought it in brown--a color Columbia had then. It is perfect. We travel constantly...to and from the states, and within Europe. When I pack it, I always "stuff" the crown with clothes. I never tried rolling or putting it flat, although it is rarely fully protected. Sometimes the rim gets bent and it stays bent for about a day, then bounces back. I have also carried it with me on the plane or thrown in the back of the car. It travels easily. The strap helps keep it hung to on my back as I board the plane or go inside. In the plane, I stuff it above or below the seat...and it does a good job at keeping the hat on in the wind. Of course, I bought it for the wide rim and sun protection--which I get wherever I go. [I also love the color.] I am now buying one for our daughter who just moved to Florida! April 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really great hat! I really like this hat - Got it in the "nocturnal" color - I haven't previously seen an SPF 50 sun hat in such a great color with a wide brim and chin strap that actually looks stylish - But this hat has all those qualities. I definitely recommend it. March 30, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pretty hat but not durable I bought this because I thought it would be a good travel hat--crushable, rollable, etc. Not so much. It doesn't pop back into shape as hoped, but becomes progressively lumpier. I also liked having an adjustable chin strap to keep the hat from blowing off in a breeze, but it broke after not much use. On the plus side it's light weight and an attractive color. December 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sun hat! Just what I was looking for; a travel-ready hat to take the sting out of the summer sun. Additionally, I love that this hat is offered in multiple sizes and the small/ medium actually fits my small head pretty well. (Columbia, please keep offering multiple size hats, one-size does NOT fit all!) June 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy As Can Be!!! I'm a dog walker and I'm outside come rain or shine, warm or cold. I needed coverage for my precious head and face and I totaly found it. This hat is the real thing! Not only does it provide me with coverage, but it also gives me more visibility from future clients....People don't usually walk the streets with a nice hat like mine! I will most definitley wear it outside of my dog walking hours and recomand it to any one! May 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Feminine, Sun Blocking Must Have! This hat is very well made. It is lined on the inside with an elastic band that fits snug to your head in order to prevent the hat from blowing off. It does a good job staying in place, without feeling too tight. This being said, for people who know they have larger heads, go for the next size up (L/XL). I bought a hat for myself and for my mom thinking that she would fall in the medium category after she told me she has a bigger head than me. I should have listened because, she is going to be giving the hat to another family member and ordering the next size up for herself. I recommend this hat for gardening! April 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great hat for so many reasons! I love that it's packable (flat) but I haven't tried rolling it yet. I needed a somewhat stylish hat that had a chin strap, and could travel the world. The UPF 50 sun protection is great, too. I have a small head and the s/m hat fit is very comfortable ... the sweat-wicking head band is an added bonus. Wide brim offers plenty of shade. I sure hope this lasts a long time! November 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good shade provider I am always looking for the best sun protection. I love that it is 50 spf. I wear it daily during the summer and while gardening. My only complaint is the s/m is a bit big for size small heads. It rests on my ears and eyebrows providing great shade. It is probably better for medium heads. Possibly putting an insert in the top could place it in a better place for smaller heads, but would make it hotter in warm weather. Overall, a terrific sun protection source. The neck tie is wonderful for windy weather and travel. July 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Global Adventure hat The hat fits very well and is seemingly made of quality materials. As I have not yet worn mine out, I am unable to attest to the durability. The design is well thought-out and the string prevents the wind from removing the hat, whether on a boat or trail. The packaging of the white hat I purchased, was poor at best. It was literally thrown in a brown shipping box, without a wrapper. I received my white hat with dirt in several spots. March 23, 2014
