This is the second one I've purchased, so now I have this in a pink and green. I also purchased two in the men's sizing for my husband. They are very light and breathable yet the long brim gives good sun protection. I use these mainly for biking but also for hiking up the Santa Rita Mountains in Arizona. Can not say enough about this brand of head gear. Sized for a women's head so no bulky bulge. Love these!

I love this hat! It's comfortable and the visor is solid with a nice curve. I haven't had to wash it yet but I plan to be pretty careful with it so it lasts a long time. It has a good adjustment strap on the back. I wish they'd had more colors, I would've gotten another one.

I sent this hat back for two reasons: the hat was too big for my head (this happens to me often - the hat makes my ears bend out and is uncomfortable), and the green color is a bit brighter than how it appears on my computer. The material seemed nice though.

This hat is so much better than a regular "ball cap". It is very lightweight, breathes well, and dries quickly. I am a petite woman with a oval-shaped (back-to-front) head and the sizing worked great for me.

Colorful, lightweight and truly does wick away moisture from your head. Have worn this cap hiking and exploring the Everglades and forgot I even had it on. Only one tiny suggestion is that the adjusting mechanism on the strap should use a smaller tab so you can fully pull the tab through more for a tighter fit on smaller sized heads. Great product!

Great hat - nice colors, very light, keeps my hair out of the way when I'm running without making me hot. Runs a little big for a woman's hat, though. I have to tighten it all the way, and even then a good gust of wind will take it off. My head is average sized.

This Headsweats "closeout" Race Hat is of inferior quality to the Headsweats Race Hats that I purchased from an online running store. The most noticeable difference between this closeout hat and the first quality hat from the running store is that the closeout hat has the fabric shell headband, compared to the terry headband from the running store. This closeout hat also has irregular top-stitching, which visually indicates that it is cheaply made and would not pass normal quality control. Finally, when I tighten this closeout hat to the smallest setting, it is still loose around my head, whereas the first quality hat fits nicely. (I do not have a small head). Performance wise, I wore the hat on a run and aside from the fit issue, the fabric shell headband does not wick moisture as well as the terry headband. However, it is light weight and the visor protects my eyes from the sun and I appreciate the dark underbill to reduce glare. As a run hat, it serves its purpose, but it loses star ratings because it is of inferior quality to Headsweats usual standards. I am disappointed in the quality of this closeout item and feel that it's a disservice to the image of the the brand.
