This hat is very well made. It is lined on the inside with an elastic band that fits snug to your head in order to prevent the hat from blowing off. It does a good job staying in place, without feeling too tight. This being said, for people who know they have larger heads, go for the next size up (L/XL). I bought a hat for myself and for my mom thinking that she would fall in the medium category after she told me she has a bigger head than me. I should have listened because, she is going to be giving the hat to another family member and ordering the next size up for herself. I recommend this hat for gardening!
I would recommend this product.

I love that it's packable (flat) but I haven't tried rolling it yet. I needed a somewhat stylish hat that had a chin strap, and could travel the world.
The UPF 50 sun protection is great, too. I have a small head and the s/m hat fit is very comfortable ... the sweat-wicking head band is an added bonus.
Wide brim offers plenty of shade. I sure hope this lasts a long time!
I would recommend this product.

I am always looking for the best sun protection. I love that it is 50 spf. I wear it daily during the summer and while gardening. My only complaint is the s/m is a bit big for size small heads. It rests on my ears and eyebrows providing great shade. It is probably better for medium heads. Possibly putting an insert in the top could place it in a better place for smaller heads, but would make it hotter in warm weather. Overall, a terrific sun protection source. The neck tie is wonderful for windy weather and travel.
I would recommend this product.

The hat fits very well and is seemingly made of quality materials. As I have not yet worn mine out, I am unable to attest to the durability. The design is well thought-out and the string prevents the wind from removing the hat, whether on a boat or trail. The packaging of the white hat I purchased, was poor at best. It was literally thrown in a brown shipping box, without a wrapper. I received my white hat with dirt in several spots.
I would recommend this product.
