Rated 4 out of 5 by texmex125 Good quality hat
Good hat to keep you from the sun. The featured vents really give you the cool sensation your head needs when you are outdoors. Light weight so its even hard to remember that you have it on. Defenately I would recommend it. It is worth every penny I'd paid for it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WideOpenSpaces Lightweight straw from Resistol
This hat is light and airy with plenty of ventilation in the crown to keep you cool all summer. The foam-backed sweat band is absorbent and makes for a tighter-than-usual fit, so consider adding 1/8 inch to your normal size. The white straw reflects sunlight and the narrower brim width provides shade without being cumbersome.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great hat for the price
The description does contain an error regarding the leather sweatband. Living in Arizona, and given that I only wear straw in the summer, I was pleased to find an absorbent band instead of leather.
The fit is correct for its size. The sweatband provides a nice cushion and does not affect the fit of the hat overall.
I like the quality and shape and the vented weave is so nice in the summer. My other hats have the little grommet holes and that just doesn't cut it in 100+ degree heat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lazlo Not as described.
I returned this item immediately and would strongly advise againgt purchase. The main thing is this, it does not have the leather sweat band as stated but a foam/fabric kind of thing which is so thick and spongy that my normal size sat on top of my head as if it were 3 or 4 sizes smaller. Very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Krank Improper Sized Defective product
I am the owner of 3 Resistol hats, straw and 10x, and very happy with the fit of them. This straw I ordered is the same size as the ones I own, however this hat is way to small. It is so small I can only conclude it has to be improperly sized and therefore defective. Since I had to pay return shipping for a defective hat, I will not order anything else from Sheplers although I have ordered items in the past and was happy with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PatfromOmaha Great Product
The brim is just the right size to keep the sun off without it interferring with any normal outdoor movement. Good venting but the product appears to be last year's model - which has better venting than this year's model. So with the lower price it is a win - win situcation.
The only drawback is the shipping container. My container came very beat up and look like some heavy boxes sat on it. The hat once released from the book sprung back into shape.
