Literally the only hat that doesn't look terrible on my huge head
Despite being a small person, I have a big, round head and literally 99% of hats look terrible on me. As in, my head is wider than the brim of a baseball hat and it just looks bad. The L/XL size of this hat actually fits me, and the nice wide brim gives great sun protection AND looks like a hat is actually supposed to look on one's head. I got... Read More the coriander brown color which is a nice gold-tan color that is pretty neutral. I have been living in this hat during all my outdoor, socially-distanced adventures this summer.
In spite of using my head-measured circumference to order the L/XL size this hat is way too large. There is no way to adjust the size. I tried washing it and drying to attempt to shrink it some, but to no avail. I would advise not buying this hat unless you can try it on firsts.
Hello Robert, we're sorry to hear that the size L/XL ended up being too large. Please note that we do offer this hat in the size S/M as well. You are welcome to return it for a refund or merchandise credit if you remain dissatisfied with how large it is. https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html We would just recommend returning it for a refund before washing it in the future. Thanks for your review!
Super cute and lightweight
Loving my new hat. Currently wearing it in my couch since I cant go anywhere yet to wear it in public but I am really looking forward to it! This hat is lightweight. So comfortable. Love the chin strap- Ill never lost this hat. Also, has a random pocket on the inside of the hat on the very top part??? No idea what this is all about but I love it!...

I have a big head (23 in. circumference). And dislike anything tight or confining. Especially hats. Plus, I live in KeyWest where the sun can cause spontaneous combustion as it did to my previous chapeau. But not this one. Not only is it comfortable and durable, but handsome, as well. It puts steam in the step and Imbues an aura of well being. More... Read More colors - maybe a mellow yellow - would be nice. But, for now, this one is ensconced in my cadre of required gear, right up there with the Model 16 Randall and your five-inch Baggies. OogaBooga. Mark Faris.
Large and floppy
I noticed one of the low star reviews for this hat was that it was too large and floppy. That was actually an endorsement for me. I often have a hard time finding hats that are large enough. I also need something that excels at keeping sun off of my face and neck, I don't want a brim that is excessively large. So, a hat that is large and flopp... Read Morey sound perfect to me. It isn't so floppy that it is going to obstruct your eyes or ears, it's just not a stiff brim hat. I will say, the material it is made out of is pretty hefty, so it may get too warm in the summer.
floppy and too large
The hat looked great on the site and in the video, but when I got it I was dismayed to find out that the brim is completely floppy. It has almost no stiffness at all. They must have spent hours shaping it so it looks so even in the video... Unlike a Tilley hat that has some metal wire in the brim so it holds its shape this one doesn't seem to ... Read Morehave anything. That makes it too annoying to wear for me, perhaps it's great for someone else... The sizing also didn't work for me. I'm right at the boundary between small/med and lg/xl. I have the wayfarer hat and had to exchange a sml/med for a lg/xl, so I ordered the lg/xl forge hat. Well, that turned out to be way too big.
