I bought this as a warm weather hat with sun protection (the small brim) because it gets cold enough in Florida when I'm doing fieldwork that I need a warm hat but it's always sunny so I prefer hats with a visor. It is very cute but not quite as think and warm as I expected. Also, although I bought the small size, it was still too big so I need to send it back. I really wish it had fit because although it wasn't quite as warm as I expected, it's still a really nice hat and I would love to have one that fits. I wish they offered an extra small for those of us with small heads who can never find a hat that fits!
