perfect for my 5 year old's head, cute (and visible!) color/pattern. packs in a bag real easy, but the wind likes to try and run off with it. could definitely use a chin strap.

I snagged these bucket hats while they were on sale. Lightweight and protection from the sun - great value. Both my daughters (age 6 and 9) love them mostly because I also have an OR Quinn bucket hat that I adore, so now they can be like mom

This hat is perfect for adventure outdoors with little ones. My 8 year old gladly wears it along with my 3 year old. Beach days, hiking or playing outside it's worked well to give great sun protection.

We have 4 kids and ordered a few different hats for them to try. This hat was a winner...even with a picky, 12 year old girl who said “bucket hats are trending” and “I’d wear this hat to school.”

This is a really nice hat. I would’ve given it a 5 star if I wanted it for a winter or Fall hat. However it is lined with felt. I’m returning it bc it is in no way a hat for the beach or warmer weather. Fits exactly by the age.

All three of our kids (ages 2, 6, and 8) have this hat. It provides better sun protection than any other kids hat we've tried. The cord keeps it on in windy conditions, it's not too hot even in extreme heat, and the very wide brim keeps its shape even after washing. Size small was just right from about 12 months up. There is nothing cuter than a toddler in this hat.

Just received this hat so I have not worn it outside yet. I am a petite adult female and the kids size Large fits me fine. I like the adjustable feature. The brim width is nice. Purchasers should know that the color is not exactly the same as the on-line photo for this product. The hat is darker than the photo ... almost bordering on a green/dark sage green (in my opinion). The color seems so different to me that I checked the color on the hat tag, then immediately signed into my Zappos account to verify that I received the color I ordered. Even though the color is not exactly what I want, I will keep this hat.
