I've worn this hat for boating, hiking, and other outdoor summer adventures and love that it stays on my head without a drawstring. Like it better than Columbia hat I ordered and returned. It is reversible and lightweight.

Favorite OR hat
I prefer to buy OR hats, because they provide different sizes (I have a relatively small head). They have different functions - waterproof, big brim (sombrero), but this is my favorite for everyday use. It's the most comfortable and attractive of the OR hats. It stays on surprisingly well, even though there is no chin strap - probably because of the 'bucket' shape. I also have many non-OR hats (mostly helen kaminski and eric javits), and this Arroyo hat is much less expensive and equally attractive and more functional.

Good sun hat
I've used this hat many times since buying it. It's a good in-between size for people who are looking for something with more protection than the tiny brim a baseball cap or fedora provides, but without the hassle of a bulky wide-brim hat. It's one of the better looking OR hats, but I wouldn't call it a fashionable option, if that's what you're looking for. I think I may have ordered a size too large, since I've had the wind blow this hat right off my head at least 3 times, but aside from that, no complaints here!

Bought hat for someone who gets headaches from the sun - good investment! The hat is not too heavy and the colors do not absorb the sun's rays. The style of hat requires no chin strap - would recommend.
