I am a 40 year avid surfer in Florida. With a thinning and receding hairline, four to six hours in the water blisters everything. The round top and strap allows for the wipeouts that always occur. The hat is over four years old and is just now showing wear.

Great product, I would buy two just in case they decide to eliminate this product.


Fabric: Nylon
Price Paid: $28

Bought this hat for field work and it performed great. I was worried about the fleece head band lining around the inside keeping me a little warm but it soaks up sweat and helps.

As far as rain protection, I noticed that it works well for a little while but after long periods in the rain, the hat appears to get soaked with rain and the brim beings to sag and drip water onto your face/collar.

The hat is durable though. I just pulled it out of the closet to do this review and it looks close to the first day I bought it. Sun protection is good. I never noticed a sunburn while wearing the hat.

Price Paid: $30
