The fantasy is blue skies, blue water and palm-lined points—heatstroke and headaches don’t have to be part of the deal. A secure, fast-drying hat for warm weather or tropical surf travel, the Surf Brim offers lightweight comfort for long hours in unrelenting sun. Made from soft and durable 100% nylon (38% recycled) with 50+ UPF sun protection and a spray-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) finish, it has a 360-degree foam brim that provides full coverage while still allowing clean duck-dives. The dark underbill reduces glare. Two vent/drain holes reduce water and heat build-up. A soft chin strap keeps the hat secure in the water or wind, and can be easily tucked away when not in use. An adjustable, elastic rear buckle customizes the fit.

Water Resistant

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Surf Brim is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great surf hat for those lunchtime sessions I bought this hat to use during those midday summer sessions. I've tried surf baseball style caps in the past and haven't liked how they pulled your head back while duck diving. This soft brim hat does a much better job protecting you from the sun without that uncomfortable feeling while under water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR EVERYTHING OUTDOORS!!! First off, I have never written a review about anything ever.... I bought two of these one in tan and one in black many years ago. I still have them! They have been worn in salt water in pensacola, pool water, fishing, kayaking; hiking in Colorado, Moab and Yellowstone. Worn at backyard pool parties, crawfish boils and biking in my hometown of NOLA along the levee. They are great for everything I have tried them for. Been through the wash, no stains or color fading. I am also a glasses wearer so I use them for sun protection when walking around or driving-- have one of the old ones on the car! The fit is adjustable and I wear a small women's size or sometimes even a youth size hat. No problem snugging the hat down for a tighter fit if the wind is blowing. I usually tuck the chinstrap inside the hat and bring it out when windy. Last year at least 30 hats had blown into the geysers at Yellowstone the day I was there. I just had mine on by the chinstrap....still have it!! Bought a new grey one and a backup black and tan for this season. They are indispensable if you like the outdoors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Over the years I have struggled to find a good hat that served the purpose of keeping the sun off my head while also being breathable. This hat does the trick. It is lightweight, breathable, and offers features that make this hat stick out above others. Besides being very lightweight and breathable, it also offers a chin strap that at first glance seemed like it would be in the way more than help. However, the strap has turned out to be a fantastic addition to this already great hat. There is simply nothing I would change about this hat. From fishing the quite streams in Wyoming, to mission work over seas, this hat is simply awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For Me Thank You for keeping this product available, decent coverage with great securing attachments. My only request beyond continuing to provide the surf brim, would be to provide additional colors if possible?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Hat Nice hat. Definitely fills the niche of "hats that stay on in the water." Fit is odd. Normally I wear large. Medium/Large was too loose. Small/Medium was a touch snug. Accounting for wave action and wet wear stretch I went with the Small/Medium.
