Rated 5 out of 5 by Limestone from A great hat for rain showers! Full disclosure: I look terrible in hats, any hat, all hats, so, yes, I Iook pretty goofy in this one, but I don't care because it really, really does what it says it will. I live in FL where the frequent rain showers are accompanied by humidity, so a hot and sticky raincoat is no fun, and an umbrella is cumbersome if I have other things to carry. This hat keeps my hair and makeup dry and is great for dog walking and birding when I may encounter intermittent raindrops, Otherwise, it is hung by its strap on the key hook, at the ready. Glamour notwithstanding, I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by R0adRunner from Disappointing size issue So disappointed! I normally need a hat to be a *little* larger than average, but the size L is so tight I can barely jam it over part of my head. It looks silly (like I'm wearing a child's hat) and feels useless. The same style & size in store was perfect but the available color wasn't right for me. So I ordered online this "deep rose" color which is really pretty-- but the sizing inconsistency makes me think it should've been called it "plum crazy" instead. It seems to be a decent quality hat, with the excellent "rollability" feature for easy packing/stowing away, but due to the sizing issue it is going back. I'm sad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rhubarb737 from Great little hat, would be improved with strap I ordered this hat in the khaki print version in size medium on a markdown. I got this for practicality and wasn't thinking of it being any kind of fashion item, simply something convenient for a sudden shower or times when I'm walking the dogs or camping or caught in rain on the way into work etc. I feel a little silly when I put it on, but it is sort of cute and certainly useful. Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised-it is a handy/packable and functional little rain hat and it fits my head well in this size. That being said, it is pretty light weight and in any real wind, the option of a string to hold it on would be nice, though of course there are many days when you don't need it so it could be tucked up inside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by capecod537 from Sew in a chin strap I wrote a review this morning, and I gave it a bad review, as in this rainstorm the hat just kept blowing off my head, and I had to mash it down with my hand. So when I came home I wrote to LLBean that it would be good with a chin strap. So I put one in, and the hat is now OK. And Ive added a picture. My previous review has not shown up yet, perhaps as it was not a good one, but this one solves the problem with this hat. So hopefully this one will get published, see photo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Loftyshoe from Does the job I bought this hat to match a black LLB 3/4 length H2O raincoat that is a couple of years old. Matches far better than expected despite the age of the coat...which tells me that LLB clearly uses good material that doesn't fade as much as others. The hat is true to size and doesn't make my head sweat even when it's a rainy day loaded with humidity. Bonus points for that. Gotta be honest and say that I could do without the snap fastener (not removable) that allows you to roll it up neatly, but that's minor compared to the comfort and 'breathability' of the hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DMDBean from Great hat I ordered this hat to go with my new raincoat, which doesn't have a hood. It arrived today and I'm loving it! I sewed a ribbon tie on it per other reviewers' recommendations. Water runs right off it completely. I was surprised at how light weight and flexible the fabric is, yet still pretty and nicely shaped when on my head. I folded the crown down toward the brim before rolling it up and it collapsed into an even smaller bundle than the photo shows. It's perfect for what I wanted.

Rated 2 out of 5 by capecod537 from Wont stay on your head, I will sew a chin strap on This is a pretty hat, but the very first, and only, time I wore it in a rainstorm, it blew right off my head before I had even left our yard! The entire walk, I had to be ready to clamp down on it with my hand, so that it wouldn't take off and fly away. It needs a chin strap, so I will sew one onto it today, easily done, will take me about 5 minutes, as that will be the only way it can be worn outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogwalker2 from Great hat! I wear hats a lot year round and I am very picky about how they look. This hat looks so cute that my husband [who often teases me about my hats] commented that it looked really good. It packs beautifully. It serves two very important functions for me. First, I walk four miles every morning, regardless of the weather, listening to my IPhone using my Bang and Olafson earbuds. Any water in my earbuds would ruinn this expensive product. The hat keps them completely dry even in heavy rain. Second, although the hat fits perfectly, it is sufficiently thin and flexible that it fits over my favorite summer small straw hats. Thus, I can go out wearing a fashionable hat but cover it safely if it begins to rain and then remove it when the rain stops. I just ordered two more on sale in different colors.
