We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

Okay Coverage but wish it had more brim
Dries quick, fits comfortably. Strap is reasonably secure, but it did come off my head a couple times. You must strap it pretty tightly which can be a bit uncomfortable. I like that the straps are not bulky and can be tucked away so you can wear the hat out of the water too. For surfing and being exposed all day I would have liked a wider brim. Thi...

Lightweight & Comfy
Ive gone through a couple of surf hats and this is my favorite so far. The material is lightweight. The hat has the perfect length of brim for sun protection and peripheral vision for paddling for and dropping in on waves. I love that it isnt floppy so you can easily see surfers around you. The ear holes are also open making it easier to hear your ... Read Morefriends while youre in the line up. Best of all, water goes through and doesnt pool in your ear pockets. Super stoked on the hat for surfing.
Wear while surfing
This hat is amazing. I wear it every time I go surfing (ordered because my hairline kept getting sunburnt). I've had it for a few months and still looks brand new. It really protects my face and eyes from the sun. While surfing, I use the strap under my chin and it has never fallen off, even when I have gotten absolutely destroyed by waves. W...

Brim has been changed
The Surf Brim I purchased last year has replaced all my other water sports hats - I give it a full five-star rating. Its uniform 2 3/4 inch brim is just about perfect, giving me enough sun protection and yet not trying to always blow off when running in the boat. The stiffness is just about right as well, keeping its shape when coming out of a wave... Read More, the chin strap always holding it in place. Unfortunately the brim size has changed this year. My new L/XL Surf Brim measures just 2 inches in front, 2 1/4 inches in back, and 2 1/2 inches on the sides. I suspect that some will prefer the smaller brim, but the I find the loss of sun protection quite noticeable, especially for the eyes. With sunglasses on, you cannot just pull the hat down further. Because the brim is not uniform all the way around, I actually believe that they might have miss-sewn it. Unfortunately I will be returning this one - again, others may like this size of brim. Hopefully future Surf Brims will be made with the previous 2 3/4 inch uniform width brim.
Hi Robert! Thanks for your feedback on this item. We're sorry to hear the revised brim was a bit short for your liking! We might recommend checking out the [Baggies Brimmer Hat](https://www.patagonia.com/product/baggies-brimmer-hat/33340.html?dwvar_33340_color=FGE&cgid=mens-hats-accessories#tile-8=&start=1&sz=24), as the brim is wider on this waterproof/sun protective style.
Perfect for windy days at beach
This is a cute hat that won't fly off your head during windy days. I volunteer out at the beach protecting shorebirds and it is often windy. This hat is great because I don't have to juggle my equipment while trying to avoid losing a hat--this hat stays put! Highly recommended!
