Full-face protection from the sun.
The size of your nose doesn't matter, despite the name of the Patagonia Vented Longbill Cap. When you need to shield your mug from the sun and the felt sombrero from your bachelor party is too heavy, this lightweight cap will deflect solar rays without causing you to overheat. Mesh side panels let you head feel the breeze, and UPF 50+ protects your skin from the sun. The extended bill has a dark underside to reduce glare off the water, off the sand, or off your extremely white legs.
- Supplex nylon
- DWR finish
- Mesh side panels
- UPF 50+

This hat is following the "low profile" trend, sigh. I have 2 of the original Longbill caps and they are wonderful, none of this low profile nonsense. My head has not suddenly gotten "low profile" , so these don't work so great in the wind because you can't pull it down any further. A Patagonia rep on the website suggested a string , how odd, if you made the cap like it used to be you'd need no string ! Strings just get in the way too. With the Originals, You can pull it down just a little bit, to the top of your ears and tighten. It doesn't get blown off very easily like this one does. The quality, albeit subjective, is not like the prior ones either, it feels like any other department store cap now.
To each their own. I returned this.
