Reviewed by Coco from CA on Tuesday, April 16, 2013I ordered both green and white and love both of them. It is light and you don't feel uncomfortable wearing it. This hat is my favorite for hiking or beach activities.
Reviewed by no nickname from midwest on Monday, March 4, 2013Love the hat. Just what I wanted, lightweight, stylish, good sun protection for my big fat head. No idea is the insect repellant works yet.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jim from South Florida on Thursday, January 17, 2013I got this hat because I had two very similar previous Exofficio (No. 3151-0382. They were excellent hats made of 100% nylon. Had a reasonably stiff brim which stayed in place so good for tennis.
This current model which looks the same but is a different model (No. 3151-1370) is a sad, bad imitation. Nylon and cotton and soooo flimsy and light.
When the wind blows a little bit, the brim just goes everywhere (over sunglasses mostly).
I'd return it, but they charge 5.95 to do so and so I'd rather just give it away.
Unfortunately, looks like Exofficio has gone cheap.
Reviewed by oldjim from south Florida on Friday, January 11, 2013I currently owned an Exoficcio "Buzz Off" bucket hat. It is great, fits well, holds up well.
It is all nylon, size L/XL, model 3151-0382. I've had it for several years, playing tennis 3-4 days a week with it (actually have two of them).
This new one is all cotton with nylon shell, size L/XL, model 3151-1370.
It fits too large, is very flimsy and thin, and I don't think it will hold up.
I am returning the hat.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by rwader from S. Calif. on Monday, November 5, 2012OK floppy bucket hat that can be crumpled. The bug repellant is a good thing.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bike/hikeguy from Knoxville,TN on Monday, November 5, 2012Great for keeping mosquitos away
Verified Buyer Reviewed by hiking fool from Bend OR on Sunday, August 12, 2012On backpacking trip in high bug area - hat (with shirt) kept bugs and flies at bay. It was fantastic. Buzzed around but never landed to bite.
- Cons: Warm on a hot day
- Pros: Keeps off bugs and sun, works
