    Straw hat - 6/7/2015

    Nice flat brim. Provides great shade. The leather chin strap can be tighten to fine tune hat size. Very well braided straw hat. I like the fine craftsmanship and the deep straw color.

    Mega price, minimal quality - 4/8/2015
    By: from Wv

    Ordered this as a present, but ashame of its quality. Have 2 older hats of this model and very sad that it has changed since this is their replacement. Would return if cost was not a factor but I will probably delete Orvis as a future source of purchases since last two have been a disappointment .

    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
    By: from wisconsin

    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
