I bought this for an upcoming trip to NZ and I haven't had a chance to use it yet. The hat does fit my small head well and is cute. I like the option to have the brim up or down and the strap to keep it on my head in wind.

I had been wearing my husband's OR hat and LOVED it. I saw this one on STP and ordered it. It is wonderful - waterproof, fashionable, fits well (I ordered small) and designed for a woman. I highly recommend this hat and thank STP for offering the hat at an affordable price.

I wear a large and ordered the same size for this hat. It fits perfectly and adjusts nicely.
Super comfortable to wear.
Adjust each side up (to look like a pseudo cowboy hat) if you don't want the side rims down.
Yes, this is breathable. According to the product overview above:
- Ventia Dry waterproof breathable construction
- TransAction moisture-wicking, quick-drying and breathable headband material
- Mesh-lined crown for enhanced breathability

The hat is waterproof and designed for wet weather and probably not the best for hiking in the sun. I don't recall the UPF rating for the hat, but I would guess that it provides reasonably good protection from the sun. I am less certain that it would provide enough ventilation to be comfortable on a hot day. I can honestly say that this is a great hat when you are out in the rain. I hope that this information is helpful.

Truthfully, I'm not sure. I live in the Bay Area so it gets over 85 degrees about three days a year.
I bought it for the waterproof-ness, which again, is great if it isn't too windy. Unfortunately, it's super windy where I live too.
Not super helpful. Sorry :)
