    The Dermatologist strongly recommended a large brimmed straw hat...I'm off to Orvis and found the perfect hat! Keeping cancer off the face and forehead! Thank You!

    While I have not experienced summer sun yet I am able to confirm that this hat is comfortable and fits well. It is well made and the leather draw straps make it stand out as a quality product. I look forward to many years of service - without sunstroke!

    Color and Shape are Different - 9/24/2014

    While the hat appears to be well constructed, I returned the hat to my local Orvis store due to the color and shape of the hat not matching the catalog picture. The hat brim was more cone shaped then appeared and the color was more orange. I asked the in store sales person for her opinion and she agreed the hat did not match the picture.

    The hat is light and comfortable while providing shade and a flow thru of and breeze stirring. It also holds on your head with stuff wind. In summary it is a great beach hat.

    not what i thought - 6/3/2014

    well made nice wide brim but the depth of the crown is too shallow and does not allow the hat to sit down far enough on your head

    Hat for yard work - 4/29/2014

    The hat fits well,but could be a little deeper.The cord could be back a little,when the wind is at my back the cord won't hold it on my head..I have not tried it in hot weather,it may be hot,or it may need a cool band,for Summer.

    Not impressed... - 4/23/2014
    By: from New Orleans

    I am a huge fan of the Lochsa River Straw Hat by Orvis. While looking to purchase my 4th one, I was disappointed to find out it was no longer offered by orvis, and was replaced by this imposter. It feels "crunchy" and brittle. It just doesn't feel lilke a fishing hat. Please bring back the Lochsa River!!!!!
