I purchased this for gardening, moving pasture, and swimming. I have been searching for a hat in this style for a long time. Things I love about this hat are the quality (so far the brim has stayed nice and firm), comfort, portability (rolls up for tucking into a beach bag), and ventilation (I love that the top of my head breathes and that I can wear a top-knot bun). My big complaint is that the velcro attachment is shaped like a bow (a purely aesthetic detail I don't love, but whatever), and as such the middle of the attachment is pinched in, which greatly reduces the available area of velcro for attaching. I have to pay close attention when attaching it and even so, at times it doesn't stick well and I have to fiddle with it several times. I need the hat to fit snugly so it stays on my head in light breezes or when moving around the garden or sheep, but it seems this puts stress on the tiny amount of velcro and it often comes undone. This is disappointing given the price and had I realized this when trying it on, I would have returned it. If a new version of the hat comes out with a better and more secure attachment, it would be the most ideal straw visor!
