100% waterproof. Let me say it again, 100% waterproof! This is by far the greatest, 100% waterproof hat you can get for any outdoor venture where you might expect rain, downpours, and the like. I wear glasses, and the brim on this Sombrero is wide enough to keep even your glasses dry in the heaviest of rain storms. The back of the hat extends back far enough to keep the rain from going down your back, hence, longer in the back then in the front and sides. You put this baby on and you will be dry, and stay dry thanks to the gore-tex crown, and the 100% waterproof brim!!! Bottom line, where ever you go and whatever your hobby (hiking, fishing, hunting, etc) if you want a lightweight hat that will keep you dry all day and night, then this is your hat. Buy it and you thank me big time. Oh, by the way, you are quite welcome. One more thing, and this is very important, the inside of the brim has an adjustable Velcro strap, and my size is usually a 7 1/4 so I picked up a medium and it fits perfect after I made a slight tightening of the aforementioned strap. Cheers!

If you need to keep completely dry in calm conditions, this is a perfect hat for you. It's well-made and completely waterproof. The problem arises when it's windy. Because the brim is very lightweight and unstructured, it easily blows up in the wind, allowing rain to hit your face, back of neck, or side of head. It's only if you hold the brim in place that you can manage to stay dry.

I purchased this hat because I thought it would be cooler to wear in the heat mowing. I was right. It really works great. It's light, cooling, comfortable and keeps the sun off you. I haven't owned a hat with a chin strap but I'm glad it has one. The large brim catches so much breeze that the hat often lifts itself off my head. This really has a cooling effect because the breeze goes right under the hat. I keep it loose anyway. I would buy this hat again if I lost it.

Higher quality than any others! One thing I like most in this product is an inner Velcro that can adjust the hat size. Brilliant idea!

color is great. Fit is comfy but moves around a bit in the wind. Thank goodness for the chin strap. Love the soft lining which adds warmth...not for summer!
