Columbia Wrangle Mountain Fishing Hat for Ladies
Great hat for the money..
I purchased the hat for fishing and a volunteer event. The volunteer event was on a very warm and sunny day (i.e. 90+ with little/no breeze). I combined the hat with the PFG hoodie to provide the sunblock. I volunteered for 6 hours in the sun ( traffic control and first aid tent) and did not receive any sun burns or felt over heated. The brim is wide enough to cover my face and ears from the sun.
I have long hair and have a hard time finding hats that fit. The other problem that I have is when I am active the hats do not stay on very long. The fit and the draw string help keep the hat on for protection.
I can not wait until I can use the hat fishing .

Wanted to love this hat, but it just wasn't for me.
I feel like you have to be a certain type of person to pull off this hat, and that just wasn't me.
The hat itself was made well, and sizing was accurate. It could have been a little more comfortable around the forehead, and ears...but I could have had a defective hat too.
I returned mine.

Excellent sun protection
I was searching for a wide-brimmed hat to wear while doing yard work and even just hanging out outdoors when I came across this one. It seemed like a fair price for the item and the reviews showed that most people were pleased with the product, so I purchased it. The color of the fabric is true to what is shown on the website. The only downside is that it is a little big for my head. I measured the way it said to and ordered the size that I fit in. I would purchase the small, not the medium, if I were to order again. It doesn't look bad on my head, but it does fall down on my forehead if I bend over. Does an excellent job at protecting me from the sun though! It's wide enough to get the entire neck, but not so wide that it's obnoxious.
