I love this hat! Have it in the purple. It's my second one. It has excellent head, face and neck sun protection. I wear it in the water, hiking, boating, gardening and Pickleball. Doesn't obstruct my view even in PB. Strap is comfortable to use in wind. The purple is vibrant and fun. People recognize me as the lady in the purple hat. I just bought another one as after 3 years of use it did fade but I don't blame it :).
