Excellent Sun Hat
I've purchased sun hats from three other companies that specialize in them over the years but this hat is by far the best one I own. My head measures 21 2/8 and I purchased a size small. Not only does the hat fit perfectly, it has an easily adjustable drawstring across the forehead for a custom fit, an adjustable drawstring around the chin, a wide brim to shade you from the sun, and its comfortable. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great sun hat!

I am super sun sensitive these days, and this hat is really great at keeping it off my face. It is super well made and folds down pretty well for a hat with such a wide brim.

My most favorite hat!!!
This was my first Outdoor Research hat, and it remains my favorite. I love all of the ones I have bought (especially because I can buy them large enough!) but this one has everything I could want in a hat. I bought it for the huge brim because I sunburn so easily, and I wanted my ears and neck covered as well. This does the job. The top part fits really nicely and comfortable, and the brim is nice and big. I really love that you can adjust how tight the band fits. When it is windy I tighten it, when I am hot, I loosen it. The chin strap has gotten me hooked - now I always look for a chin strap. I love the little flower detail on the back too. The only times I have gotten a sunburn since I bought the hat was when I left it behind - I won't do that again! Great hat, highly recommended!

Great hat for running
I am always on the lookout for a running hat and this fit the 'bill'. It needs to protect on all sides from the sun, be lightweight, not fall off when windy (without having to use the under chin strap), and be sturdy enough to wash frequently. This one is great on all fronts (except I haven't washed it yet). I have a small head and the medium fits fine and it's flattering to boot!
