    My husband likes it! - 8/2/2011
    By: from Ohio

    Bought it for me and lent it to my husband for a windsurfing event. He said it stayed on his head even when he fell in the water. The only problem was in the wind when the front part of the had folded down in his face. The price is a little high but comparable to other hats like it.

    I was amazed how much this hat helped to keep the deer flies away, I did a test of coming out of the house with and without this hat and the difference was amazing, the only thing I would change would be to have it vented better, the hat is very warm but worth it to not cover myself in bug spray.

    No More Gnats Hat - 7/20/2011
    By: from Levittown, PA

    While working in the garden, I was constantly plagued by these annoying little gnats. They kept flying in my face. I would be swatting at them constantly. Since my bug-repelling shirt was a successful purchase, I did the logical thing and added the hat. No more gnats! I should have gotten it sooner.

    Great Hat! - 8/6/2009
    By: from New York, NY (hat went to the Amazon with me)

    This hat is featherweight, cool, comfortable, and really keeps the bugs away from my face. What an awesome product! Don't need a hat leash either, because it has a strap you can wear under your chin or under your hair to hold it on your head. Brim is wide enough to shade my face, but not so wide it flops down obstructing my view. Thanks for offering such a great product! It's a little expensive.

    I have had this hat for over a year now. I train my dogs outdoors a lot and I am a mosquito magnet. No more flying insects around my face. It is also very cool, does not bother me in the Texas heat. I am a size 8 woman and I ordered the small/medium.

    Really Works - 2/5/2009

    This hat has the perfect combination of sun shield (nice wide brim) and insect repellant. I wore this hat on a trip to Egypt and the Galapagos this year. In both places, my face, neck, and ears were protected. The brim is wide yet can be turned back in front (when using a camera with viewfinder or moving into or out of a Zodiac). The insect repellant was especially useful in Egypt, keeping small and annoying gnats and flies away from my face.

Find your hat size easily!

How to measure for a hatHere’s how you can find your correct hat size quickly and easily: Using a cloth measuring tape, measure around your head at the point at which your hat normally rides (approximately 1” above your ear). Pull the tape tightly enough to get an accurate measurement, but do not pull it too tightly. If your measurement is between two hat sizes, order the larger size.

Your hat should fit securely, but not tightly—if you shake your head back and forth vigorously, the hat should stay put. The same goes for bending forward: if you bend down, your hat shouldn’t slip off. Make sure, though, that your hat doesn’t bind or pinch. If it does, we recommend you exchange it for the next larger size.

Your hat will break in with wear. Over time, your hat will conform to the unique shape of your head, creating a one-of-a-kind fit. With proper care, your hat will provide many years of faithful service.
