This is an excellent hat whether you are working outside in hot, sunny, windy conditions, hiking, or if you need a stylish, casual hat for strolling around a Farmer's Market. The hat is very lightweight to wear and is flexible, which I prefer to the stiffer "hard shell" straw hats. I have worn this style for almost 20 years. It holds up well with heavy use, but as mentioned previously, will probably need to replace in about 2 years. Love it! (Posted on 5/1/15)
Nice fathers day gift for my father who is constantly having skin cancer surgery on his face. Very casual looking. But all in all a nice hat. The stampede strap is a bit awkward. The brim is a great size for wearing around town. (Posted on 6/29/12)
This is my 6th Pantropic fedora. I've been wearing this style for years. I have taken this hat on travels to Africa, Asia and Latin America and rely on it's comfort and durability.
These hats hold up for a couple of years before needing replacement (Posted on 2/14/11)
