Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lillyowl from British Columbia on Monday, September 8, 2014This hat is fairly stiff and holds it's shape well. It's a bit hot if you are out in full sun but does block all the UV rays. I was between hat sizes (small/med) and I got the medium. This has been good and the hat is comfortable but doesn't blow off too easily in a gust of wind. Having the flex fabric around the rim where the hat touches your forehead is what makes it really comfortable. It hasn't had any problem in light rain and hasn't faded in the sun at all.
As for the styling - it's a mix between a typical Aussie hat and a cowboy/girl hat. Very nice looking on. I hang mine from a hook so I can keep the brim (contoured) shape.
Reviewed by Jim the hat guy from Upstate NY on Thursday, August 14, 2014Ordered my usual hat size and the hat is way too big. Agree with the other review stating that the sizing should be consistent with measured sizes, rather than the generalized S to L.
Quality of the hat seems decent, but can't get past the poor sizing.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Oldschooler from California on Monday, June 30, 2014This is a quality hat and comes as described. My only reservation would be that it does not come in specific hat sizes. Instead it comes in S,M, and L with an inside band that is made out of a stretchy material that is supposed to accommodate multiple hat sizes. Of course, the fit can never be as good as a hat with your specific hat size. I would prefer a leather head band and specific hat size. Otherwise its a fine hat.
Reviewed by Jeanne from Georgia on Saturday, June 14, 2014Very nice hat for a great price.

Question & Answer

It's quite waterproof and I think it would shed rain for a period of time. I've worn mine in light-ish rain and had no issues. If I were to wear this in extended downpours I would use a waterproofing spray/or add wax to the hat. You can tell by the thickness and rigidity of the material that the oil that has been applied to the canvas was a generous amount and has been allowed to permeate it.
This does have weather protection properties, but it is not listed as waterproof.
