Great hat! However, it could use 2 air vents on each side to add additional cooling.

Terrific Hat - my husband loves it!

My husband has the Solar Bucket hat (in multiple colors), but needed a wider brimmed hat. I ordered the Charter Hat and he loves it! The brim is wide, but not too wide and the style is very smart! We love Sunday Afternoons hats!!! Top quality!

Best sun hat ever.

Purchased ten years ago and worn daily throughout the summer months boating, hiking, gardening,, and touring. Very comfortable, cooling, and fantastic sun protection. This is my favorite sun hat and I have a large collection to choose from.

Great Hat from a Responsible Company

Decided on: Sunday Afternoon Charter Hat for these reasons: * Sunday Afternoon is a responsible ethical company * The Charter Hat has a wider brim than the others * They have a better chin strap storage solution * And the style has more shape than a typical bucket-type hat Researched and compared quite a few products: Kookaburra Cricket Sun Hat Tilley LTM6 Airflo Broad Brim Hat Adidas Victory Bucket Hat Duakrs Wide Brim Sun Hat Sunday Afternoon Charter Hat Broner UV Blocker Big Brim Hat Outdoor Research Papyrus Brim Sun Hat Shelta Condor Performance Sun Hat

Good Looking and Tough!

My husband has worn this hat for years now. It always seems to look good and keep its shape no matter what he put it through.  He accidentally splashed some paint on it a few weeks ago. He hand washed it and it all came out! Even so, a replacement is in order, so I’m ordering him a fresh one.

Great Looking and Practical

I bought this hat for a Caribbean vacation. I wanted something that looked great and was also packable and washable.This hat is all that and more. It’s a perfect sun hat, light-weight but with structure (not floppy), has a strap for windy days, and holds your sunglasses. Don’t hesitate!!!

Great quality !

I bought in California and brought it to Chile this summer, amazing hat ! Pay attention: Do not fold it ! (hahahahahahahahaha...) Strategic ventilation doesn't work. Moisture wicking sweatband works really good !
