I've had this hat for over a year now. I wear it when I'm hiking, backpacking, camping, or even fishing. The brim is nice and wide and keeps the sun or rain off. There is a little bit of wire around the edge of the brim that makes it easy to sort of shape it. The Goretex rain cover over the crown that can fold back and stow away in the pocket at the back of the crown is very nice. I find that the fit does get a little tighter when you stow it away, and that is usually how I end up wearing the hat.The mesh at the front of the crown allows nice air flow and breathability. I've worn this hat in constant rain during a fourteen mile hike and though water did start to get through the hat near the inside band, nothing can stay entirely waterproof through constant rain like I was experiencing. I've also been wearing this hat in very windy conditions, up to 40 mile an hour winds. The drawstring chin cord came in handy keeping the hat from blowing off my head. I got a size large.
These type of hats are usually too floppy, but this one holds it's shape well. The way the rain block folds into the back is clever. It breathes with it folded in and is a very good rain block when folded over.
