Wavefarer™ Bucket Hat

Kinda Large
April 23, 2023

Great print!!

LOVE the print of this hat. Bought the shorts in this print too. Ladies, just be aware that this hat runs a little bit big. Generally, my head is big for a woman, but bought the hat in Small, and is still a bit big, but will keep it. It is darn cute on!!

Cool Looking Hat

I really like the colors and style of this bucket hat. I just wish it would hold up better in a wash without it folding up so much and not being able to keep its shape.

Nice Hat!

I ordered the "Wavefarer Clean Currents" bucket hat, and am very happy with it. I ordered the size small, which I would think would fit most women of average size. Comfortable to wear and easy care.

Actually took this with me on a vacation and it was perfect. It was a perfect size and I could get wet easily by the pool and it would barely show and dries very quickly. Ended up getting this in two colors and wore them both non stop.

Bucket Hat

Solid bucket hat for summer. If its in your cart just buy it, Patagonia is hands down my favorite brand. From customer service to their iron clad guarantee, no one tops them.

Hey Jeffrey, thanks for the feedback. We're sorry to hear the hat was big for you. It does come in a small as well which has a 22.83" circumference. If you think a size down could help, you can begin an exchange on [this page](

Great bucket hat for general use

I have a larger head- usually I wear a large in most hats. So initially I ordered the L/XL, but it was too big. So I purchased the small, and although it wasnt quite perfect, it was much better! I bought this hat to wear while walking, hiking, and at the beach. Overall its a very nice bucket hat. It does cost more than cheaper alternatives, but y... Read Moreou get what you pay for. This hat is well made with quality materials. If youre looking for a good summer hat to shield you from the sun, this is it. The only thing that would be nice would be to include clips in the hat to attach a chin strap for windy days.

Too large

A small size should not flop over my ears.i have worn size M in the past. I find sizing has changed drastically at Patagonia over the years. Extremely back business model!!!

Nice lightweight hat

Id been trying to find a quick drying bucket hat that was well made and offered some sun protection. Its a nice hat, but does run a bit larger than youd expect. I bought the large, but it was too big, so I bought a small and it fit me a lot better. Only get the large if you have a really head, or a lot of hair! Anyway, great hat.

Great Little Hat!

I have a large head. This and your wide-brimmed sun hat are the only ones that fit! The strap is handy during strong winds. This one makes me feel like a cartoon character à la Porky Pig but I love it! The yellow one is terrific!

nice hat, runs really large!

It is a really nice hat that unfortunately runs really large. I have a big hat and wear a 7 1/2 in New Era hats. This one is an 8 at minimum. Currently waiting that the color I originally purchased will be back in stock and then will exchange it for Small.
