I really wanted to love this hat, and my daughter loved the fit & feel of it. However, since blocking sun was its primary intended purpose, I returned it. The brim has no form at all to it, so it just flops in the child's face. The hat's material is very light weight; seems like it would dry really fast and would be comfortable in hot weather. If the brim had shape, I would have kept it & given it 5 stars. I ordered the purple lotus, and the color is true to the pics here. Very beautiful color. I would LOVE to see a kids' sized version of the women's sun goddess, with the adjustable chin strap for windy days on the lake AND the formed brim to keep the hat's material from flopping in my child's field of vision and stay on its task of blocking the sun.
I do not recommend this product.
