I picked up a similar hat at a fishing store and really liked how much cooler it stayed than the typical all cotton hat in the sun. Decided to give the Columbia PFG hats a try since I love the shirts and have found this hat is considerably more comfortable to wear for long periods of time in the sun than any of my other hats. Haven't had a chance to test the stain resistance yet but am otherwise quite satisfied.
I would recommend this product.

Seemed like it made my head hotter, heavier, the older style Columbia hats I've been using for years seemed cooler. Bulkier looking around the rim, didn't like the way it looked. Sorry Columbia, love your stuff but this didn't work for me. Have been wearing your hats working in a hot kitchen for years and expected more reading the reviews.
I do not recommend this product.

Lightweight & great sun protection for a balding head! I've had a touch of skin cancer on my forehead and don't want any more. This hat does it's job, and it's lightweight fabric is cooling as you wear it. I wear it at the beach (when doing tai chi), while hunting, and anytime I'm in the sun.
I would recommend this product.

I love this hat. Thae fabric is stretchy but not too much. Feels great on my head. Wish the hook and loop closure was a little softer since some of it is exposed against my head when wearing. OVerall great hat.
I would recommend this product.

This hat is very cool, and wicks moisture away from your head. You hardly realize you have it on, and does a great job of shading the sun.
I would recommend this product.

I visited the Columbia factory outlet in Vegas and checked out sun block and moisture wicking hat models. The black Coolhead Ball Cap was my favorite: comfortable, great fit on my medium bean and an uncluttered design reminiscent of a tactical squad cap. There were several similar ball cap designs but this one stood out because "Columbia" was not emblazon across the front. A tiny offset graphic logo was used instead. The micro fiber fabric is ultra soft and stretches for a slim and fitted look. It's so lightweight it's easy to forget you're wearing a hat. For my 7.25 hat size the Velcro adjustment strip needed to be adjusted slightly larger than the smallest position, so plenty of adjustment for larger heads.
I put the Coolhead to the test during several days of wandering around the Vegas Strip in triple digit summer heat. I figured the claim of using moisture from your head to cool the cap was corporate chuck 'n jive. Amazingly, the cooling feature worked extremely well and despite it being black. My head was cool but the rest of my body was really hot! I should check into Columbia's Omni-Freeze ZERO shirts... And, yes, no sunburn on my bean, plenty of glare cutting bill coverage and hands down the lightest and coolest hat I've owned, whipping heat grabbing cotton caps silly.
The Coolhead is a wonderful hat for summer travel, hiking and yard work.
I would recommend this product.

This hat truly does keep you cool! Highly recommend for anyone who spends time outdoors. When I get hot, I simply put it in the cooler for a few minutes then put it back on. It keeps me cool for hours!

I love this hat. It is very light weight, and the fabric is breathable. But the best part is that it fits/molds to your head right away, and doesn't leave the crowned look of traditional caps.
I would recommend this product.

Very lightweight cap. Has worked excellent for spending 8+hour days out in the sun. Can hardly even tell the hat is on your head. Color has hardly faded after one year of use for work and running.
I would recommend this product.

We have not gotten to the real heat of our Texas summer, but the couple times I have worn the cap, it has kept my head much cooler.
I would recommend this product.
