This is a good hat to keep the sun and rain off on days that are not too hot. It's similar to the Coastal Sombrero I've used for several years (that model seems no longer available). The brim is stiffened in front and back, but less stiff on the side, so it can fold up. It has a sturdy strap system to hold it on your head in the wind. In a stiff wind, the side brim will blow around, I expect. It's nylon and Goretex, so it will breathe some, but it's not the best hat for dry and sunny days. It's a good compromise for areas that aren't too hot, and where it may well rain, and the wind may blow.
Feels true to size

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
