    Just what I wanted - 7/3/2015
    By: from Ga

    After returning from Okinawa I wanted to find a hat similar to what I saw used by those working in the heat/humidity. This hat does the job. Lightweight, shields my face & neck from the sun, plus it is bug repellent. All good things! I may look a bit dorky in it but will not be sunburned. Laugh on folks.

    Bugs away OMG - 9/29/2014
    By: from Fort Myers area, FL

    Living on an island in SW FL, we live with gnats and mosquitoes. The BugsAway Hat with Cape makes walking my dog at night very comfortable without smelly sprays. The fabric is strong and I expect that it will last a long time. BTW the cape stores away nicely on the back of the hat and the hat looks good for normal wear. Thanks Orvis.

    Fight bugs with your hat - 8/6/2014

    This hat keeps bugs away. After spending several days on or near a lake in Quebec I can say that it works. Too well as I briefly had it before my wife saw it's effects and insisted that it was her hat I was wearing. Worked equally well on her.

    Safari Cap - 7/15/2014
    By: from Bryn Mawr, PA

    In preparing for an African safari in Kruger Park later in 2014, needed some appropriate clothing to protect head and neck from sun and insects. Purchased the safari cap with roll down neck protector and tie straps which should be perfect for travel in Africa as well as any other trip where tropical conditions prevail.

    Best fitting hat ever purchased - 5/21/2014
    By: from Oklahoma

    This was bought for my husband and he loves the hat. He fishes a lot of rivers and lakes where we live so the cape is great protection against the elements, plus he can "pack" the Cape away when not needed. He will be fly fishing in Wyoming in September and will be using it then for certain. He is a big man, is head is large so it is great to get one to fit.

    fits the bill - 9/5/2013

    This hat helps me while I'm out picking blackberries and fretting about ticks and avoiding mosquitoes. It keeps the sun off and (I hope) will keep the ticks off. It was what I needed to go with my insect shield pants and shirt.

    Great hat for sun protection and keeping bugs off your neck. Sides fold up nicely so it doesn't look goofy like some hats. Looks like a normal baseball cap when sides are not in use. Very light and keeps head cook in hot weather.

    Hat - 7/24/2012

    I picked one up today and I totally agree with the previous review. It is versatile and the cape folds nicely up into the cap when not needed. Light weight and breathable. The Small/Medium is a large hat and the pull string helps adjust the hat nicely. Unless you have a really big head go with the S/M version.
