A bit tight, but maybe I purchased one size too small. It appears to be well made (in China) and has a nice interior pocket to hold something lightweight. Not sure how it will hold up, but I am looking forward to using this to hike Big Sur.

Nice hat. the XL size fits mt 7 5/8 head well, not too snug but a firm fit. Construction quality appears to be good, and it looks like it should hold up well. It has a slight, odd, smell which I can't identify (possible due to the oil treatment or sun protection coating) but it seems like something that should disappear after a day or two outside.
Special Extra Feature: in the top of the crown there is a small velcro-secured pocket that could carry a small thin wallet or card case, or some folding money. Clever feature!
