I am more of a ball cap guy in the summer but this hat is super comfortable and cool. Have only wore it a few times so far but yesterday it way in the 80’s and this thing was great. Saved my nearly bald head from sunburn and let the breeze blow though enough to keep me cool. Almost too nice to use for yard work but that just may be what it gets used the most for! Cooler than most ball caps plus keeps more of the sun off my ears and back of the neck. I did get this hat free as part of a promotion but it is going to a long term piece of summer work west for me.
