I have worn the OR Papyrus brim hat on several occasions now. i live in tropical Okinawa and let me tell you it sure gets hot and humid here. I am typically a ball cap kind of guy, so this is my first wide brim straw hat. My hat size is between 7 3/8 and 7 5/8 and I bought the Large and it fits great. I wore it to my kids last week of school outdoor field day and was in the sun for several hours. The hat kept the sun of my head and face. I did not apply sunscreen to my upper face or ears and did not get even a touch of color. The straw build of the hat allows the air to circulate with any breeze, so I found my head being cooler than if I worn my trusty ball cap. Only having the hat for a couple of weeks I cannot comment on longevity, but it appears to be another solid product from OR.
