Good fit, attractive, very comfortable, not for extended time in sun as does not have large enough brim in back (but that is what makes it more stylish)
Purchased the hat for canoeing to provide increased protection over standard baseball cap. Its brim is wide and accomplishes this function well. When paddling the back brim can be flexed slightly up and holds position so it doesn't drag on my upper back. Only used it three or four outings so far but I'm very pleased. I felt the price was very good considering the quality of the hat. Size large hats often tend to be a little snug on me. This hat in large fits perfectly. Take care not to crease the brim when packing as it seems to take a permanent set. On my original purchase one of the two hats I purchased, to check for size, was folded over in the shipping box and had a hard crease. Tried pressing it out with stacked books to know avail. We had a little mix up when ACS sent out two replacements immediately instead of one. Liked the hat so much I decided to keep two in large. You know how it is, you find something you like and the next time you try to buy it it's not the same!
