Verified Buyer Reviewed by yogi photographer from Colorado on Tuesday, May 19, 2015I have a very large noggin for a woman; my hair is quite thin, so it's definitely all brains. ;) I would never buy a hat marked O/S (one-sized) because I know it won't fit me. But I took a chance on this one based on the reviews saying it ran on the large size, and the excellent price.
In a fitted cap or cowboy hat, I am usually comfy in a 7 1/2. This hat will fit on my head, low around my brow as I'd like it to, but I'm going to try to soak it to stretch it out just a tad. If I were to put a size on it, I would say it is a 7 1/4 without stretching it. It will easily stretch to a 7 3/8 if you need it to - I just need it to stretch a bit more. ;)
The material and weave pattern are beautiful. I also purchased a similar hat in the same order for comparison (the San Diego Hat Company Straw Fedora Hat) and this one far surpasses the other in quality.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Glenwood Guy from Colorado on Monday, May 4, 2015You need a festival/golf/summer hat. Something you can wear with shorts, slacks, a t-shirt, a button down, a tank. Something that didn't make an appearance on your last hut or river trip. Something that keeps the sun off without making you look like a mushroom, and has more style than a ball cap. This is your hat. Stuffs into a suitcase and regains its shape better than a billed cap. Brim can be shaped in a variety of ways.
Reviewed by JB from Middle Rio Grande Valley New Mexico on Thursday, April 23, 2015I wear an XL in hats, and this one was a bit tight, but an overnight stay with my hat stretcher made it a perfect fit.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Justin from Minneapolis on Wednesday, April 8, 2015This is great summer hat, but the one size is really large or extra large. I wear a medium size hat, so I was able to line the inside rim with felt to make it fit. It's really a cool hat, though. And material seems like a quality grass weave, soft and pliable. It was so inexpensive after the deals offered by STP, so I didn't mind taking the risk with the size. Glad I did.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by WVMNTNRNNR from SOVA on Wednesday, September 24, 2014Fits perfectly (I'm a 7-3/8) and it's totally cool!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by buddhaauthor from Los Angeles on Friday, August 8, 2014Pretty soft construction and a bit dented on arrival, but a little mist and blocking with a balled up towel fixed the shape. Pretty large for a one size hat. Only buy if you're hat size is 7 1/4 or larger.
