Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly light I have a Columbia Global Adventure Packable Hat in a straw color that I love for camping/hiking, but it doesn't feel quite as at home in a major urban city when I take a walk at lunchtime. I went to REI to get the same hat in a darker color, hoping that would steer it towards feeling a little more stylish, but chose the Scala Ribbon Sun Hat (in black) instead. It's a little more whimsical, but looked quite at home with my business-appropriate blacks and grays. What really sealed the deal was how seriously light it is -- the Colombia Packable Hat has enough heft I can feel the difference in my bag when I've packed it, but the Scala Ribbon Hat weighs a fraction of it. They both have nearly identical brim widths, so I'm getting the same amount of shade with a lot less weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful. Great coverage I purchased this hat for an upcoming trip. The moment I tried it on, I knew it was perfect. The 4" brim - great coverage. The look is casual, but polished. The hat is semi-crushable. There's a fine wire in the outer rim to keep it from flopping. The hat can be rolled, but not packed flat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good looking hat I like this sun hat. It's sturdy and relatively stylish for sun-protection wear. The color is good because makeup and sunscreen stains don't show.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect travel hat I bought this hat to take to Brazil because it easily folds into my suitcase and pops right back into shape when I need to use it. It's cool in warm weather yet provided some heat on the overly cool airplane. Also shaded my eyes and face well.

Is there an adjustable feature inside the hat to accommodate head sizes?

Asked by: Franny
I don't know why REI said that, but there is a tightening string on the inside. Source: I just got mine today.
