This hat gets two thumbs up
My mid-west mom came out to visit me this past mothers days and I spent some time showing her what Utah has to offer. We went down to Arches and we were going to need to to keep that desert sun out of her eyes and off her cheeks so we I got her this hat. She would have been happy if I got her a hat made out of paper-mache and macaroni but I have to say I was really happy with how this hat performed. First thing I did was ball this hat up and stick it in my pocket to see if any of the straw fibers would snap or come unstiched; as soon as it came out of my pocket it snapped back to shape and was completely unharmed. On top of that, this hat has style, gives you the same performance as a safari hat without looking like a gaper.
