SPF vs. UPF Sun Protection
Love the style and shape of this hat. The flat top is really unique and the brim size walks a line between feminine/chic and farmer/gardener; it works in either scenario. My one gripe is that even with the adjustable inner band, the shallowness of the hat means it’s not very secure on your head. It should come with a drawstring toggle to prevent it from blowing away! I cannibalized one from a bag and now it’s perfect.
I was surprised when I opened my hat to find the adjustable drawstring inside the brim, it is perfect! I love the leather strap, but did add a cord adjuster to keep it from blowing off my head. Very pleased!
I searched high and low for a hat that I could use for both gardening and outings. With my big, curly hair, hat shapes were a concern. This hat feels both practical and stylish.
I was looking for a hat that simulated an old hat. The first hat I ordered from San Diego wasn’t quite it enough. So I chose another hat that much more closely resembled my beloved old hat (which only died because our puppy saw it as a chew toy). San Diego customer service enacted the exchange efficiently and painlessly. Returning the old hat was easy, and I had my new very nice hat in a matter of days. And it even has features my old hat did not have (UV protection for one!). Thank you!!
