Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fishing Hat This is a Great fishing hat. I like how it keeps my Head, face and neck out of the sun. Being out in the sun all day, you don't have to worry about applying sunscreen all day long with this hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for extra sun protections I've used this hat for years. It's a great addition for those who want the extra sun protection for a day fishing on the lake. it's not the coolest looking hat but i'm more concerned with sun protection than looking cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sexy, but works wonderfully!!! So the brim is extra long which is not super attractive, but it does exactly what it's supposed to do... keeps you covered! Lightweight material and moisture wicking... keeps you cool and covered on a hike. Love this hat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping it cool The PFG Tamiani Cachalot II has an easy adjustable fit which I think is great! I purchased this product because I wanted a hat to shade my neck and keep me from getting sunburned - the Cacholot II does the job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features I work outside all summer in the hottest part of the day and I love the long brim on the hat. It protects my face and eyes from the sun. The cloth that drapes down in the back of the cap and on the side also protects my neck and ears from the sun. The cap has helped in keeping off mosquitos also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fishing essential I do not go out for a day on the water in the summer without my "floppy hat"! It is very cool and the long bill helps to keep the sun of your face and the cape keeps it off of your neck just as designed. The only thing that I would change is to maybe put a small piece of Velcro at bottom of the cape so it could attach to a shirt that completed the set because if it is windy it can sometimes cause the cape to blow up and around to much allowing the sun to get to your neck so it defeats the purpose. Perhaps have a small piece of sister Velcro hidden underneath the collar of your shirt so you could flip up collar if windy and attach hat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waiting to go fishing The only reason I got this was because it was 1/2 off the price and I had a coupon, I've kinda always wanted a hat like this for fishing, but am so cheap I wouldn't buy one till now. Try and get it on sale now as the price will go up just before Spring, then you'll end up like me, wishing for it, but not willing to pay that much for it. Can't wait to try it out(even though I know how it will do), it's kinda just something you need here in New Mexico because of how high we are above sea level. I got plans and now this hat is a welcomed addition to prevent the UV stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
