I had this had and when there were bugs the built in bug net was amazing. All that additional fabric was incredibly hot though. You could find relief from the heat by opening up the bug net "pocket" and having the bug net out and draped back sort of like a habit but it looked stupid and created a lot of drag along your pack as you looked around. The construction seemed really solid though. Overall it was a good enough had I wasn't looking to replace it until I lost it on a back packing trip. (it was too hot that day so I took it off and just used a bandanna) I had strapped it to my pack but not well enough. I guess a hat that is too hot to keep on during a hot day is problematic. If you don't generally run hot it may be a good hat for you. Personally I just keep a separate bug net that I can toss over my hat if need be these days.

This hat has everything! The bug net tucks away on the outside of the hat and the strap keeps the hat securely on my head. Goof for rain or shine.
