How well this item performed in its intended use, and beyond.
It may not be the most stylish of hats, but it has proven to be very functional for the unshaded trail. The construction of the hat seems very durable and had no problem flopping back to normal after a night folded up in the pack. Although, i have yet to use the hat in conditions of extreme heat, it did a good job of keeping my head cool during some vigorous 80 degree backpacking.
