Great hat! I purchased it for Preakness and dressed it up to match my dress by sewing on ribbon and an extra large bow. I received many compliments! For Preakness next year, I plan to wear this hat again and change out the ribbon/bow to match my dress for next year.

At last, I found what I was looking for. I went through two other hats. What I like most about the hat is that it holds the shape and doesn't block my view. Completely blocks the sun. I am so glad I bought it.

This is a big hat! It's going to BVI with me and it will come in handy for keeping the UV rays off my head and shoulders. Looks spectacular on and easy to fold and travel, it pops right back into shape. A great big hat with a great low price for what you get. A great look for anyone on a boat, yacht, beach or by the pool. Excellent for any resort!

Big, pretty, healthful hat; a little heavy. Nowhere else but San Diego Hat Co have I found hats that provide so much portable, non-chemical sunblock. This brim is the widest I've found. The shape is a stylish picture hat, but another slightly smaller style slants down and provides a bit more sunblock if facing the sun.

Love this hat! So glamorous! I can't wait to wear it on my vacation while lounging by the pool. Also, I'm glad it can be rolled up for transport.

Clearly a higher quality hat than say the Jessica Simpson line. I loved the Toast color, but the brim is just way too big. My husband said it looked like a floppy tortilla on my head. I searched for the same style/brand with a smaller brim and they don't make one. (The San Diego Hat Company UBL4136 Women's Floppy is close, but a bit stiffer.)

Crazy big, exactly what I needed and wanted. Covers shoulders too. Seems odd, but if you want sun protection (and I do after recent trips to my dermatologist) this is the hat. Just be aware, it is for sitting, not for movement. It's too big to walk with (air flow will blow it off). Unfortunately, my husband is not a fan and after mulling it over, I am returning. :(

Brands I'd also recommend: kangaroo

Really cute hat -- Really big hat! Got it for steeplechase and it was perfect for the event, although I didn't wear it the whole time because it got in the way a bit.

This is the perfect hat for the next Derby or Steeplechase. The only issue I had with it is that the "one size fits all" is a little big for an average head and it's a bit tough to keep on in any type of windy weather. Other than that, it is a great addition to any wardrobe.

I bought this for a Kentucky Derby Fundraiser and the hat is just what I wanted, but the brim is so floppy that it doesn't stand out like the picture, it's like walking in a tunnel you can't see off to the side, and people can't see you.

Definitely shields you from the sun, a little bit floppy have to keep fixing it. Took it to Aruba and this hat helped with the sun but can easier fly off your head with the wind in Aruba.

This is a beautifully-made hat, and it has an unbelievable price. It is perfectly-proportioned and has a great color. The brim is huge, so it can be turned up or down, for different looks. It would make a great Mother's Day present!

Bought hat in white and citron. Returned citron as it was actually not as bright and pastel as the picture, but rather, a mustard color. Very bendable for packing, but creases stay.

Love the way it fits,don't like the color -- more citrine than butter. Brim is too big. Wish Zappos would give the size of the brim in inches so there is something exact to compare.

If you want to feel fabulous -- and a bit like Samantha in the first Sex and The City movie -- then this hat is perfect! I love this hat. It's a little tiny bit big, but that actually helps you not have hat-head at the beach. This hat has presence! It's perfect to read under, flip a bit up to people-watch, or simply sit and relax. You will get compliments!

I bought this hat at the behest of my dermatologist. She actually suggested the San Diego Hat Company. It covers shoulder to shoulder which is also what she recommended to prevent sun exposure. The hat is well made and comes in more than one color. I wore it first at a neighborhood event held outside. Got compliments from some of the women and noticed how many people did not have any kind of sun protection. I noticed that there was also not much shade to sit in and my daughter joked, "we'll just get under there with you." The hat itself is very stylish and reminds me of one worn at the Kentucky Derby. Very nice! I'm very pleased.

This is a great hat! I wore it to the Kentucky Derby and it was perfect. It is very large! You can kind of guide the rim where you want it so its not too in the way.

Perfect hat. Bought this for a spring vacation in the sun and the ability to angle it depending on where I was in the sun was really helpful to shade my face. Would love this in other colors too!

Great hat! Wide brims is what I was looking for making it look so elegant. It easily adjust shape of brims, so that's great. The only downside is that it still contains paper products, so I better not get it wet!

I own many hats from San Diego Hat Company and highly recommend them. This hat is great but the brim is very large. It will be ideal for around the pool or beach. It is UPF 50+ and packable. The colour hot pink is true to the photo.
