Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sun hat! I needed a gardening hat and got one here, hoping it will not look like a beachhat so much. This works perfect and looks cute too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Size runs very small. Customer service not helpful at all. I purchased a S/M which I usually wear but it runs so small that it hurts my head when I tried to get in. I called the customer service and hoped they could offer free return shipping because it is the merchant's fault. The customer service representative Charles was not helpful at all. He kept saying that Columbia doesn't offer free return shipping. This is not their fault. It merely means that the size doesn't fit me. He even said feel free to leave a review. It's like they don't care at all. Very bad experience. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for everyday use. Bought this hat for my job as I am outside for 3+ hours eachday with kids and needed additional sun protection. Its easy to throw in my backpack and comes out looking professional. The brim is large enough to effectively cover my face and neck from sun without being overly floppy, blocking my peripherals (we are dealing with kids after all). This is a great hat, just sad I missed out on the grey color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best sun hat I've found I wanted a stylish sun hat for sitting at ball games and at the beach. First, this one is cute (I just don't care for the unisex ones). I have a large head and the L/XL size on this one actually fits me- which is not true of other brands. It packs fairly well, not as "packable" as the nylon fabric booney hats, but when I lay this in a suitcase and try and fill the inside of the hat with things it retains its shape well. I've had no problem gently folding it to fit into a day beach bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's global adventure packable hat In iceberg Very pretty color. I like the fact that it has a drawstring on windy days it will not fly off my head. I am interested to see how well it holds up when I pack it in a suitcase. Great uses for the beach and on hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to find a large size hat that is feminine I have a hard time finding women's hats that are large enough for me, and I usually end up buying one, in XL, from the men's department and adding a ribbon or something to the crown. How happy I was to find this hat in L/XL and I ordered with trepidation ... but it fits perfectly! I chose "Sparrow" which is a lovely lavender / light purple. (Sparrow???) It is soft, not crispy like straw hats, and has a super wide brim that is not floppy. I just have to remember there is a large paper content, so will avoid wearing in the rain. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not large enough Unfortunately this "Large/XLarge" woman's hat is too small...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite hat ever!!! I love this hat!!! I purchased in white and green- great colors and perfect fit. I wear them for home pool use, gardening and will wear for my upcoming cruise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sun hat. Even my teenage daughter loves it! Needed a pretty and functional sun hat for the high desert. I loved it! Protective, pretty, packs well. My teenage daughter stole mine - only hat she'll wear - so had to buy another and yet another (different color). Added bonus, no more comments about my old, worn-out hat looking like a wet sock!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute, durable, and fun colors finally! a hat that's not only durable and quality, but also one that comes in fun colors and doesn't look drab and boring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect color and design My wife loves this hat. It covers both her shoulders and is cool during our very hot summer this year. Would highly recommend it to any woman looking for better shade. Recommend to measure your head prior to getting the hat to ensure proper fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's packable hat I got the white hat. It looks really nice and elegant. The s/m size fits perfect on me. The cord feature helps a lot when windy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat! This hat is flattering and I usually look terrible in a hat. I wanted sun protection with a not-so-wide brim that blows off when sailing. I'll use this hat for water, land, and everyday activities. Thank you for the chin strap. It is perfect!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't get this hat wet or dirty - ever For outdoor wear, this hat doesn't pass the test. I was rained on and now this hat is completely unusable. Droopy, dented, and nonredeemable. The shape completely fell apart when it was rained on. Which is a bit ridiculous since hats are worn outdoors. It also cannot be spot cleaned which again means it should be treated like an Easter bonnet not a travel hat. I really liked this hat until I used it outdoors. Don't get this hat unless you are 100% sure you will be able to keep it completely dry and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit. Very well made, totally packable - pops right back into shape. Well made and I really like the way you can cinch it up for windy days. My new favourite hat! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely summer hat I bought this hat for a beach vacation but I find myself wearing it all the time. I ordered the S/M fits true to size (I typically have a smaller head) and is great at protecting my face from the sun. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooshable hat I haven't been able to get this hat so bent out of shape it didn't bounce right back. The brim is great for keeping sun off my face and back of neck while gardening. It does run a bit big for me, so I'm glad of the strap to hold it in place. That seems plasticky, so I'll likely be replacing that some time with a leather cord. Other than that we'll see how it stands up to time, but great for me now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful hat!! All I can say is that I love this hat. I think is the best hat I've ever owned. Very stylish and protects me from the sun. I was very hesitant when I order it. I thought it might be too much of a hat for me but..all my doubts when away when I tried it. I am so happy I bought it !!! It's perfect for afternoon walks with my dog, for going to the farmers market, for gardening, or for the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hat! Not a hat person, until now could not find one that 'worked'....this one fit the bill. Love the strap, the protection and coverage...now just have to wait for more 'sunny days'! Love the coral! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat for the Florida sun Great hat for out on the canoe in the Florida keys. Keeps the sun off my face and neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Hat I love this hat! It's perfect for everyday wear, and quite comfortable. Keeps my head and face protected from the sun with a brim that isn't too large or cumbersome. I also love that it comes in several colors, and just may purchase a few more!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Floppy hat and now also discolored I loved the way it looked when I purchased it 1 year ago. I've worn it probably 12 times between last summer and this past weekend. It now has floppy sides... so I keep turning it around so I can see. The straw part has discolored as well (I don't mind this) but I do mind that it has not kept it's shape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gift for Mom I bought this hat as a gift for my mom. She is outdoors a lot doing gardening and sitting by the pool. This hat is perfect for keeping the sun off her face. She was so happy with the hat and she really likes the 'Sparrow' color. I may consider buying one for myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-05-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-03-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2015-04-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
