Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tammy from Alabama on Friday, May 27, 2016This is a great hat! I was afraid that it would be too hot but the vent worked well. I wore it on an outing and it kept the sun off my face and shoulders. Fits great! (I am a small)
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Karen from California on Tuesday, February 9, 2016I 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.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Beth W from Pacific Northwest on Wednesday, January 20, 2016Brim seemed to have some plastic in the edge; wasn't all foam like OR Raindance Sombrero (which I love); we didn't think it would pack as well on backpack trips, so we returned it.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jane from Coos Bay, Oregon on Thursday, January 14, 2016I 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.
Reviewed by Debbie N from Atlanta on Saturday, January 9, 2016I love the way it snaps up (magnetically) into a "cowboy" hat. I'm going to wear the heck out of this!

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 :)
