    I wore the hat on at kayak paddle. It gave me the shade I needed. I could adjust for for comfort and sizing and the chin string kept it in place in a fairly stiff breeze.

    This is my second OR sun hat and it's just what I wanted. The brim keeps its shape but isn't stiff, so it shields my eyes. And underside brim fabric is dark grey, which is easy on the eyes. Fabric is very lightweight, crown fits properly, and the underchin draw cord keeps it from flying off on a windy day. Don't be put off by the color shown in the photo. Olivine is not neon green. It is a bright, spring green color. I've looked but no one makes better designed or more well-constructed sun hats than OR.

    Bought to replace a much loved hat. So far it's all good! Good when travelling to hot and sunny places.

    Smaller brim than some of the other OR hats so it will work well for times when I'm going in and out of buildings/cars instead of being in the sun all day. True to size. Recommend.

    This is my second OR hat, the first was lost in Big Sur. Must say that this particular hat is much lighter and I am hoping that it protects me from the sun. Fits nicely if you got a big head.

    The brim is not floppy. Covers well without being too big. The fabric is light weight and breathable.

    Love everything about this hat. The brim is nice and wide, stays nice and straight to block the sun from face and neck. Very lightweight and dries super quick. Perfect for the beach, morning walks, or whenever you want to keep the sun off your head. I use it in S. Florida where you really need a sun hat, and it's perfect! Love the color as well, it's not neon green, just a bit lighter than that, but it is a bright green.

    the hat itself is great, but we got the "olivine" color, which looked like a neon green in the picture; instead, it was more like a pale/pastel green, so our middle school boy is wearing his dad's olive green one instead.

    The hat is functional overall and I like how the chin strap is removable by untying two simple knots at where the brim of the hat meets the crown. The only major problem is the color of the physical hat is a bit more pastel than that shown on the website.

    I like a hat to keep sun out of my eyes and bugs out of my hair, but I do not like the ring of sweat that accumulates at the edge of most hats.
    Although this hat does not completely solve my sweat issue, it is the best I have ever had. Better than the baseball style caps I usually favor in the summer. The light green is a fair match for the brighter/lighter green foliage, so it makes a good hat for birding. Not my style for wearing around town, but a great hat for the woods.
