I bought the hat for myself, however it was way too big for me, and it was even a little big for my husband who has a larger head.
The fabric and feel of the hat is very good though.
I would recommend this product.

Tamiami Cachalot runs small and does not give adequate face, neck coverage either. Very skimp flaps.

The hat was too small plus the cut of the flaps was skimpy. It did not resemble the hat I had purchased several years ago. For a hat to really block the sun it should have flaps that are loose and longer so as to cover more of the face and the neck.
I retuned the hat and found a larger size in a local store but even though it is larger in size it is still skimpy and not really adequate to protect me from the direct rays of the sun. I am disappointed with the product and if you ever go back to your original hat let me know. I don't want skin cancer and having the proper hat protects the gardener and the fisherman also. It would help if the flaps could meet in the front and could be closed . Good luck....Jordon
I do not recommend this product.

The Coolhead Cachalot is far better at its job than two similar products I own that I'll have to donate somewhere. It also works better than a sweat band and under my bike helmet as well. When I fear I look a bit dorky, I tuck the tail under the cap top and it's -presto- a normal looking cap.
I would recommend this product.

Bought this for my husband who is new into hiking/backpacking. He was looking for a lightweight, breathable hat to shade his face and neck. The concept is great. Very high quality fabric. His only complaint was the neck piece made him feel claustrophobic. We returned it for the version without the neck piece and he loves it. Fantastic customer service when returning the hat.
I would recommend this product.
