I love this brand. These are great as are their straw hats. Affordable and cute and comfortable -- score! My sis-in-law joked that this one was a 'Fresh Prince' 90s throw back, buttheads kind of why I like it.

Love this hat, big enough to keep the Arizona sun off my face and small enough to wear comfortably all day long. Plus, Zappos has the BEST customer service - a lovely buying experience all around!

The reason I chose this hat is because I had what I thought was the same exact one for the last four/five years. I wore it constantly, even in the swimming pool! This one is slightly larger, I tightened it as much as possible, but it doesn't fit as well, and it is 84% paper instead of 100% polyester, so I won't be able to get it wet. I am disappointed, but will keep it because I need a new hat. I have a small head and very short hair, so if you have a full head of hair it would probably fit better. I would give it a B.

I wanted a hat that would be a little more dressy for the water/summer days. Everything about this hat is perfect! It looks great on and the brim stays in place. The gold detailing makes it look expensive but still casual enough to wear with a swimsuit.

One size fits most, not all. This hat is so cute, though. I am going to figure out how to replace the headband inside. It does noit give at all.

My family has nicknamed this hat as the "ridiculously large hat." So if you want a hat with an extra large brim, this is it. It's not great for walking long distances in, but great for reading a book or relaxing in the sun. It's like having your own personal shade tree.

This is an elegant hat, very stylish and I love the fit. The problem with this hat is it extremely thin and see through. I wear these hats to KEEP THE SUN OUT and you can see right through the hat if you hold it up. This is not a UPF 50 hat like the tag states. If you are looking to keep the sun off your skin this is a huge disappointment and it is misleading. San Diego Hat Company use to make their hats with a thicker, more durable paper fiber material that kept the sunlight out when you wore them. This is a very cheap hat, nothing like what I would expect from this company. What a shame, I will be looking elsewhere for my elegant sun protection.

This exceeds expectations! This hat fabric is perfect mid-point between straw (too casual except for farm wear) and fine Panama (too fancy and too expensive). The brim is cut well rendered and turquoise beads give spicy accent. It is a great summer hat.

Love this hat! Very pretty, great material, brim size is excellent, cute ribbon adds charm and my favorite: it's packable! I put it in my suitcase and all I have to do is stretch here and there and it goes back to its original shape! Go for it!

Love, love love this visor! It is very comfortable and a nice light weight. I am able to wear my sunglasses with the visor which is not always the case! The navy color is very classic looking as well.

I bought this hat to protect my head from the sun while doing lawn work. So far, the hat is working great. It fits well and is comfortable. The brim is wider than expected and sometimes I bump into things when wearing the hat (this won't happen once I get used to wearing it). It appears to be made pretty well. If you're looking for a cool summer hat to keep the sun off your face, I would recommend this hat.

I really like this hat! The cream color goes with everything, and the cording strap gives it a sporty look. I adjusted the cording to make it fit my head. It will be a fun hat to take on our trip to New Zealand, or wear it to the beach.

Very nice hat. Shapes easily. The only negative is that it has little yellow dots on the rows of ribbon on the pink, green and tan colors. I ordered a white ribbon crusher first & it was solid white and could easily be dressed up or down. The colored ribbon crusher hats are not same fabric as the white and are much more casual.

These visors are the best for any activity in the sun! It has a wide brim that creates a lot of shade, and rolls up for super easy travel. I love this visor from San Diego Hat co.

After reading the reviews on San Diego hats I decided to try some. I ordered three hats from Zappos. The extra wide brim on this hat is large. The only problem I had is that the left side wanted to lie against my face. The wired brim would not let me reshape it and keep it from touching my face. I turned the front brim back and the shape then felt much better, so I think I will use a hat pin to hold the front brim back. This still leaves plenty of brim for sun protection & makes the hat very classy. I also ordered the gold flecked straw hat Item #ubl41360gld. It is lovely and well made, easily could be dressy enough for church. But I must say of all three the Ribbon Crusher is my favorite. I ordered it in white. This fabric is casual or dressy. The brim is easily shaped, just a perfect hat. I may even order in another color. My order was at the door in two days. Great service! This was my first order from Zappos but will definitely be a returning customer.

This is a really cute hat, but it has a bit of an odor. Hopefully that will go away with time. It is really lightweight and doesn't seem super durable. My big disappointment is that Zappos stuffed it into a shipping box for shoe boxes (too small) and it was crushed when it arrived. There aren't any more in stock, so I think I'm going to try to salvage this one.

Good sun protection beach hat. Keeps sun off face and neck, but not too big. Especially like the SPF. Washable by hand. Wouldn't buy dark color if you plan to sit in hot sun.

I got pink. It is absolutely a gorgeous, spectacular color! And I got my daughter the same color in the child size, so we would have matching mother-daughter hats. I'm not sure what to do though because although I love it, the hat is made for a larger head than mine so it doesn't quite fit.
