Purchased this hat as a replacement for a "cheapo" version I bought off of Amazon. That other hat had extremely poor workmanship. This Mtn Hardwear hat is outstanding. Great fit with the elastic headband. I was a bit worred about fit, since my head size seemed to fall between sizes, but I went with the upper size (large) and it fits great. Great lightweight material, excellent profile and fit, and overall outstanding MH quality, as usual. If I were to be nitpicky, I could say that I'd like buttons on the side so that I could wear the brim Aussie style, but that's just me.
All in all, a fantastic hat. Highly recommend.
I would recommend this product.

Recently took this on a 50 mile desert hike. The wide brim was perfect, especially the wider backside part really kept my neck out of the sun. The wide part on the back did sometimes brush up against my pack's load lifters but that only occurred once in a while. Not a big deal. I didn't have any problems with the neck cord, at least not as much as I thought I was going to have. The holes for routing the neck strap could be placed farther back to keep them from rubbing against your ear but other than that the hat was great and I look forward to checking out some of the the other colors. I was worried about the fit when I ordered it, because the XL goes right up to 25" and my head is 24". I usually don't wear hats because they squeeze my head and I get headaches from that. This one was perfect. The stretch definitely made a difference.
I would recommend this product.

Practical Long brim

Fits well. Perhaps not the most stylish but in terms of practicality very difficult to beat. Large brim is effective particularly in the rear, protecting the back of one's neck.

Snug fit

For an XL it is not as roomy as I would have wanted. It fits very snug, like a skull cap style ball cap. I like more roominess and breathability. The snug fit causes the front brim to creep up my forehead affecting the eye/face protection and appearance. I did not like the pull snug strap either. It is obnoxiously colored, and did not seem to function comfortably, so I removed it. Still it is a fairly nice functional hat, and I will enjoy wearing it, but could have been better.
