- Excellent (Review by Birder Guy)
I've been using this hat now for 3 years. Its been with me all over the U.S. doing research from the hot arid high desert region to New England to the Gulf coast. It is excellent sun protection. I always forget to put sunblock on my ears so this hat saves me quite a bit. It is very good about wicking sweat away from your forehead preventing it from dripping down into your eyes or onto the lenses of your sunglasses. Then I leave my chin strap attached and put it up over the top/back of the hat for those days the wind is super strong or riding in a windy car or boat. That way I can pull it down under my chin. It can get hot in humid weather though and it stays wet if you're in the rain. It's definitely not quick dry material.

I've had this hat since 2008, when I took a job in the desert Southwest. It is very comfortable and breathable, and blocks the sun very well. I love dunking it in water in the hot afternoon.I would like to point out that the tag line for this product describes it as "Cotton sun protection for hot, dry climates." Key word is "dry" - the material may be a bit thick for the Midwestern or Southeastern USA heat. It is, however, perfect for the desert Southwest.

I live the south east and the humidity is harsh. This hat is comfortable and great in the spring time but summer humidity with it on is unbearable. I also own the sombriolet, it has it's down sides too (brim has a mind of its own, flimsy). The brims on all there hat except the Seattle cannot be adjusted and are flimsy in the wind. No one that designs outdoor clothes(HATS) must have never been to the south east or tropic jungle. Yes, I have i have traveled to many uncomfortable climates (ARMY). Of all choices out there OR has the best but still need improvment.
