Recently received this as a prize and I had my choice of several options; this hat was on my list. Typically when hiking I prefer wearing wider brimmed hats instead of lathering my neck, ears and my face with sunscreen. I've used the old tried-and-true hat with a bandanna.

    Just finished the Texas 200, sailing a small boat from Port Isabel, TX to Magnolia beach in upper Matagorda bay - 200 miles in 5 days of intense sun and nights of voracious mosquitos. I even wore it in my bunk to keep bugs out of my face. Think I will buy a spare, though no danger of it blowing off with its adjustable elastic.

    After sev'l wears in gnatty weather, I haven't noticed any reduction in bug visits to my arms or face. The hat isn't comfortable on hot days (feel too constricting) and the brim is somewhat narrow for a sun protection hat.

    I didn't pay a lot, but I did expect btr from a good brand like Columbia.

    This hat is too cute, for starters. Since I am official bug bait, I hope it to be my salvation. So far, so good. Great price, terrific value.

    I'm going to use this hat for gardening this summer to keep sun off neck and ears. Looks and fits good, but would think it might be a bit small for a man.

    I bought this for high country lakes w/mosquitoes, but the bill is too short as is the neck protector. Main issue is color/general appearance makes it look a bit feminine for my tastes (but it is unisex). I will keep,it a spare if I ever have a woman with me that doesn't have the right gear.
