Columbia Tamiami Cachalot II Hat
Great Durable Protection
I have a lot of skin damage issues from years in the sun. I now wear as much protective clothing as possible. So I use Columbia sun protection shirts and this style hat. I've got one in the tan color I've been using on a landscaping project at the house. It gets hard daily use, sometimes gets really grubby and was with me all summer. It breathes well enough to keep from being unbearable even in the hot Georgia summer. I've managed to work outdoors and not have any sun issues. When it gets dirty, I toss it into the washer and it comes out looking almost new. The bill holds shape just fine. I liked it so well, I decided to get the same hat in a different color.

Excellent Functionality and Comfort
I fish from a boat under intense direct sunlight. This hat is perfectly suited to the conditions of heat and light that I experience. The flap offers additional protection to the back of the head while the extra long peak provides needed eye shade when looking in the direction of the sun.

Tamiami Cachelot II
Have used this particular product for a number of years. The various features are very useful and that is why I keep one or two on hand. I live in a very warm climate and the ultraviolet protection is quite necessary. The collar clip is a nice touch to keep the hat with you in high winds, and the neck protection is the primary reason I buy this product. It is light weight and suits my needs perfectly. I get many inquiries as to where others can get one. I recommend it highly.

Tamiami hat good sun hat
This hat was just what I was looking for to replace an older one that stopped being as sun protective as is used to be. The size fits. The flaps stay down or go back down when the wind slows or stops. This hat does not get blown off my head when the boat is moving.
The one I have is sand or tan in color not the darker onepictured when writing the review.
