Rated 5 out of 5 by Skywalker from AC on your head This is the best hat that you can ever buy. The best analogy I can come up with is that it feels like you are wearing an AC unit on your head. Your head instantly feels cool when you wear this compared to any other regular hat. Perfect for hot humid weather and hiking outside in the sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mountainMan3 from keeping a coolhead first it is most comfortable ballcap I've worn. second I work nights and the sun is like the enemy sapping my energy after work. This hat helps me sit out on my back porch without shade and keep me cool or doing day errands with out feeling like I'm melting. Columbia is now my go to for temp regulating clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jbruces from An essential for me! I’m a cap snob... this is my “ go to” for caps outside. I love the material as I forget I’m wearing it. Doesn’t overheat my head like the other caps out ther. An added plus is that it fits my larger head size. I buy several at a time in case I lose or forget one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DougBee from Nice cap for hot weather This all synthetic cap breathes nicely in this hot, humid weather we have been having. Fit is one size fits all, but seems roomy even for my large size head. Fabric is a little delicate - can snag and pill up. Good construction overall with a generous bill for sun protection. Columbia logo is kind of cool looking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tuiflies from Functions well Nice, light and comfortable material but the shape doesn't fit my head well. For some reason the material stretches and creates two folds that run from the edge of the brim diagonally up towards the button. Hopefully it fits my wife's head better than mine. Otherwise I really like it. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeBu from BEST CAP EVER!! This cap is the finest cap style warm weather hat I have ever seen. Durable, cool, fits all head sizes, and wicks moisture away in al flash. I use it for golf and when its really warm, I soak the hat and wear wet. Cools like a charm. I've bought several extras so I'll have them if Columbia decides to make a style change or eliminate this cap (which would be insane). MikeBu

Rated 4 out of 5 by BearyB from Great but not quite Tis hat is definitely cooler than your average baseball type hat and you will sweat less. However, the omni cool band is virtually useless. First, it only touches your scalp (if you have hair) in the front. Second, it really doesn't feel any cooler. What does work is it fits great and is a very light material that breathes so your head doesn't get as hot for sure. It's the only hat I've owned that I can turn around backwards for riding across the water at 40+ MPH that doesn't give any effort to coming off. Very comfortable and well made!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rainman177 from Helps keep a cool head. OK, I have more than a few hats. But NONE of them do what this one does: Helps keep me cool. With the added bonus of an SPF of 30+ it does well in keeping the rays off the grays. It's light, comfortable, and even kinda stylish if you are into that. I think this would be a great addition to anyone's collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amote8 from Finally found the perfect hat! I am a woman with a ridiculously large head.... okay maybe not ridiculous but every other hat in every single brand you could think of that I’ve tried on was always way too small! Felt like they would pop off of my head at any moment. But THIS HAT.... this hat is amazing! Finally I’ve found a hat that goes all the way down to my ears and feels snug and like it covers my entire head.... which is the whole point of a hat, right? Anyway, I bought the men’s version to make sure I was getting the largest hat possible, so I don’t know how the women’s version holds up, but this hat is perfect! It’s very lightweight and stretchy, which would probably help it fit heads of all sizes. It also keeps your head cool, which helps in the sweltering Florida summer. I love that it’s low profile, it doesn’t feel or look bulky on my head AT ALL. love that! If you are looking for a hat for large heads, this is it! I am seriously tempted to buy this hat in all colors, but you should see my collection of failed hats....I don’t think I have room for more hats! Another bonus, thank you Columbia for putting this hat on sale! I jumped on that like a spider monkey! :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by sjf13NC from Best ballcap ever made I have (4) of these caps. Two I have had for over 8 years. You can't hurt them! I have worn them for everything from a night out thru work, hiking/camping and fishing. Just throw it in the washer or hand-wash and hang it up. It dries fast and looks like the day you bought it. Great fabric, sun and water repellent won't fade. Also has a thin plastic brim that holds its shape. Very well made with a great design. Keep new and different colors coming! Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by PittKrev from Considering a Second This hat fits the perfect niche I was looking for— functional in that it blocks the sun, dries quick, and perfect weight. It’s heavy enough to feel but not so heavy that it’s constantly being felt. It’s like a part of my body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tmattyc from Great Hat This had fits very well. It is nice and light and allows air to get to my head. It worked great the first day I put it on and was out in the sun all day for my child's school activity. I chose the gray color and with it on it felt great in the direct sun. There was no problem with odor or adjustment. I also wore the had the next day for a 5-mile trail run. It kept the sun out of my eyes and my head nice and cool as if I was not wearing a hat. My head size runs larger than average and it felt snug enough that it did not blow off in a breeze but was not overtight where it left a mark. I would recommend this hat to anyone who wants a nice, lightweight sun protection but also wants to have a breathable material close to their scalp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rie12 from Best Ball Hat I am female but wear the men's version of this hat. I have five in various colours (some duplicate) and I constantly have one with me. We Boat and hike frequently and this hat is perfect for this type of activity. Recently lost my one and only black one and re-ordered immediately - two this time in case I lost one again. These hats are a cool light fabric and easy to wash. I wear the men's version because it comes down over my ears which helps to prevent burning the tips. Good snug fit. You won't regret this purchase. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Witknee from Cool hat I wear this hat on the river on sections that don't require a helmet or when we are taking a break from a day out in the water. I also wear it on the lake and any other time in the sun. Your head will stay extremely cool even in 90+ degree weather for an extended time. There are men and women options. If you have a small head, get a woman's. If you have a larger head, get the men's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillyG from Finally the right hat I've been trying a variety of hats for the last several years trying to find the right one, especially for backpacking. I tried the wide brimmed hats, but found it was too much hat for me. I tried standard baseball caps, but they do a poor job of wicking sweat and staying cool. This hat is a great blend of form and function. It looks sharp enough to wear out and about, but it really comes into its own on the trail wicking sweat away from my brow, and keeping me cool and shaded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kayakid25 from Best Light Weight Sun Hat I have several baseball style sun hats but this is by far the best and most comfortable. Love the oversized brim and the light weight comfort. Added bonus- when it blew off on the water, it floats! Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for comfortable sun protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SPFNY from Excellent hat with a minor weak point Purchased this at a Columbia store. I love it and was very disappointed when one of the back straps broke! It seems that one strap is a velcro strap while the other is a plastic/rubber strap that clinches on the velcro. The plastic/rubber one broke off at the joint with the hat. Even though it broke, I still recommend it as it is really comfortable, light and does the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lory from Great Hat!! I lost my hair permanently due to chemo and radiation. Had the hardest time finding hats that fit my very large head.

Rated 3 out of 5 by txcaley from Weird cut, but great cooling properties The light fabric and terrific headband are exactly what I was looking for in a hot-weather ball cap, this will definitely keep your head as cool as possible while wearing a cap in the sun. But I found the cut of the cap a bit strange...at least for my head. You can adjust the circumference with the back velcro strap, but the hat seems too deep (or tall) for my head. In other words, there is a bunch of fabric left at the top when I put it on...if I pull it down to snug over my head, the sides come down over my ears. I've never had that issue with a ball cap before. Other than that, this is a perfect hot weather ball cap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stepeel from Great cap I was looking for a cap that I could use during backpacking to block out the sun and rain. The bill is a little longer for that purpose. This cap is not bulky/stiff which feels comfortable while wearing and I can pack it easily in my backpack and not worry about weird wrinkles when I put it back on because of the lightweight material. It also has this stylish look as well. My favorite cap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bmh4142 from Best hat ever Super lightweight and breathable. I bought it a few years ago, and after extended use (daily for a couple years) it developed a sweat stain on the top of the hat that would not come out...my only complaint, but I probably should have washed it more often. Because of this I tried buying another, but they were no longer being made. I'm very excited they are back! You will not regret buying this hat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oj11 from Exactly what I wanted I purchased one of your hats several years ago in a retail store, and have not been able to find more. I tried your site with crossed fingers in hope that what I was ordering was the same quality and material of my previous purchase. I am very pleased, not only the material is the same, the colors online were true. Shipping time was very reasonable. Thanks Much!
