I used this sun hat for marathon. My face is safe from sun burn (I put a lot of sun block on, too). This is the most excellent hat ever! It covers the back of my neck area. It also covers the side of your face. The string in the front is adjustable which is my favorite feature plus is good for running as it will not fall off. I have the white color which does not trap the heat. All in all the hat has everything that I need to save me from my marathon. I truly recommend this to buy!

I recently spent considerable money on cosmetic procedures to remove sun spots and even out skin tone. I was looking for a hat that covered ears, cheeks and neck and did not blow off on breezy days. The toggle in front holds it in place and still allows for good peripheral vision.It comes in different sizes, yes!, I needed a large to be comfortable and I can put my pony tail through the back! I will use it for gardening, dog walking and any activity outside. Thank you Zappos for your great selection and service.

I bought this in the hope that I would be able to wear it instead of putting sunscreen on my face and neck, and I was not disappointed, which is good -- I have been burned (literally) in the past with other hats. It's also somewhat more compact and arguably packable than my other sun hats -- the visor is curved, and I've been packing it next to other soft things so it can stay curved rather than trying to squash it flat (though maybe flattening would be fine?), but the rest of the hat is soft and the visor is much smaller than the brims on wide-brim sunhats, which makes it easier to manage. It's not especially stylish I guess -- maybe if one took off the head towel thing, but it looks like it would take more than 10 seconds to take it off or put it back on, so I haven't been experimenting with that. It can be a bit warm, but that can be an advantage. No trouble in moderate wind so far. Adjustable fit (via velcro) is handy -- I have a big head, XL is working for me without adjustment but nice to know I can loosen it further if needed.

I'd been looking for a replacement for the Rhat Hat I used to have. this one doesn't have the aluminum foil sun reflector, but it's pretty good!

I am a safety official (corner worker/flagger) for motorsports. I bought this hat because I stand in the sun all day. It works excellent for keeping the sun off your neck (front & back), ears and cheek area. Its light-weight, easy to wash, and looks good. I have worn it in the sun for about 50 hours so far with no problems. I recommend this product.

A hat for people with big heads! Fairly comfortable, but you'll look awkward with the skirt on. I prefer it just as a ball cap, but the mesh panels don't provide too much sun protection (although they are very breathable). The bill isn't too shape-able, but it gives a little (which helps if hats tend to dig into your temples, like me). Very light. Overall another outstanding piece of gear from Outdoor Research.

Bill is too short to provide meaningful sun protection. And the flap is either on, or off, no tucking it out of the way. Returned it.
