Do you worry about getting sun on your face, neck, ears? Well, this hat is for you. I'm an avid hiker and outdoor person and this hat is perfect for keeping all areas of the face including cheeks from the sun. Having a small head it's great that it's adjustable.The shade can be removed for days you don't need it. Hope you enjoy this hat as much as I do!

I work as a gardener and was looking for a hat that would not blow off in the wind, would not get knocked off by branches, and would not fall off when I leaned forward. Most importantly, I needed sun protection for my head and neck. This one fits all those needs, and is light weight and well ventilated. The black underside of the bill minimizes glare, and there is a sweatband. Plus it's SPF 30, adding to the sun protection I need.

I purchased this cap to keep the sun off my head. Not only does it keep the sun off my head but it keeps the sun off my neck. The material the cap is made from is awesome. It is cool to your head and lightweight. As always thank you, Zappos, for the fast shipping and great customer service.

Just got back from a 5-day backpacking trip in the sunny central Sierra Nevada with this hat, and it worked great! I loved not having to pile sunscreen on my neck and ears - just a dollop on my nose and cheeks and I was ready to go. The hat seemed to help keep mosquitoes away too. I chose this particular hat because it looks slightly better than others in this category, and I wasn't disappointed - although we both looked a bit crazy in our sun hats, I did indeed look (a bit) more stylish on the trail than my hiking partner.

This hat is fantastic. I live in the Bahamas and do a lot of boating. I bought four (one for everyone in the family). It is comfortable and adjustable. The coverage is great and the brim isn't too long so you can see clearly. It stays on in the wind so I can use it when the boat in under way. I'm ordering a couple more just in case.

My husband does a lot of landscape work and as a result has a lot of sun damage on his skin. I finally got him this hat and he's really happy with it. Great product! Machine washable and it looks like it will stand up to the kind of beating he will no doubt give it.

Love Outdoor Research products...part of hat was lost so the hat was "unusable" according to my husband. This was my husband's favorite hat so we ended up finding it here and gave it to him for Father's Day. He was so happy to get his favorite hat back.

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 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.
