Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sun Hat Ever I love this hat! Even though it has flowers on it I wear it all the time. It only weighs 2.1oz, its white, its cool, and it fits well. The brim holds it shape well. If you fold it up it may be a little wavy for a bit but it springs back to flat fairly quickly. Great hat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend this comfortable hat I wore this hat for many days of hiking in sunny weather. The wide brim shades the face very well and chin strap is comfortable. The hat is very lightweight, with inside venting and small airholes. This design provides medium breathability through the head in hot sunny weather. It folds up nicely for a backpack or suitcase and still retains its shape. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for warm weather. No ventilation so super hot in warm weather. Size is good for sun shade (even on neck if you wear it back on your head). But I need an all-weather hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hat Bought it for a whale watching trip. Cord keeps it securely anchored, brim is wide and shelters your eyes. Can take a lot of abuse

Is this Sahara hat able to be packed flat?  Or will that ruin the brim? Also, is it water repellant if worn in the rain?

Asked by: Daniakk
You can fold the brim but it will maintain some of the folded shape for some time, so we recommend storing the hat flat. The Sahara Hat is not water resistant.
