Looks as it appears - light and floppy brim. Fits my larger size head and offers sun protection well. Soft enough not to crush too badly re-shape crown.

Love this hat! It's so flexible, packs easily and regained it's shape beautifully upon unpacking. Cleaned up easily with a quick hand rinsing after being soiled from sweat under the hot sun. Love that it can be styled in almost any brim style and it's comfortable. Incredible value.

I love these hats/visors because they are sturdy yet flexible. I am prone to skin cancer, plus I have a lot of hair, so a wide, flexible brim and an open top are perfect for me.

Wow, this hat was a life saver in Asia for me. I had this stashed in my luggage as a spare and it is a good thing since I left my regular straw hat in the luggage bin on the plane trip over. I have a small head so the fact that it was adjustable with the Velcro in the back really helped it stay on during some pretty significant weather. Hello humidity! Those same Velcro tabs enabled me to strap it on to the back of my backpack. By the end of 12 days the hat was still holding together well, not really showing the dirt and sweat but it was pretty droopy. I am not sure if I will ever get it back to its fresh look but I do feel I got my money's worth.

Very nice hat in rust color! It goes with any color since it has several colors going through the hat to make it look like rust. I have a big head size & most hats fit me pretty snug. This is the first one that has slight bit of room but not enough to fall off my head. When wind blows, it has to blow really hard to make it move. Would be great if inside was adjustable.

I love this hat/visor! I have a rather large head and the velcro adjustable closure id perfect for me. It's colorful in a subtle way and is comfortable to wear. Very happy with this purchase!

I got this hat for my mom, she loves it from the very first time that she put it on, it is very light and the brim is very easy to shape to cover the sun and also to frame your face. It is very easy to fold and pack for a trip, she loves it, I have several of this Crushable Ribbon hats myself, that I had been using them over the years for many of travels, they are the best travel hats!

This is a super hat. It is feminine but not girly. The cotton crochet makes it nice and cool but it still offers shade for your face.I feel like a girlish Al Capone in this! I'm glad I bought it as it will serve me well in the sun. Although it looked a bit mashed when I pulled it out of the box, it sprang to life once it was out of the plastic bag.

My first hat had some of the braid coming loose, but returning to Zappos was super easy. The replacement hat is perfect and fits wonderfully!

I love this hat, already have it in black. Looked for ages for a nice looking hat with a tie, something more than a yard hat and found these. Very windy and hot here in the desert so needed coverage and a tie. The hat was smashed in a small box when it arrived and still had dents in the crown, very disappointed about the packaging. These hats are somewhat crushable, but you can just do it any way. Should have been shipped in a large flat box.

I like it a lot. Fits well, comfortable, shades my face and neck, and I like the neutral color of this; goes well with anything.

I was looking for a combination hiking/beach hat and a friend suggested this one. I was surprised (although maybe I shouldn't have been) by the size of the brim on this hat! Some of my hallways are a bit narrow and I kept walking into walls with the hat, so it most definitely wouldn't have worked for hiking. It was also a bit too big for my head.

This sun hat is just lovely. I was a little unsure when I ordered it as one of the comments said it was sized small, but I have found that it fits perfectly and I would say my head is average size. Another thing it keeps its shape. You can pack it and it pops up. It is just great a really practical buy and a bargain. Thanks!

Was really excited to receive this hat - great quality and style, but was extremely small. Only one size was available. I have never had problems with hats fitting on my head - but I could barely get this onto my head and had trouble even taking it off it was so tight. Only purchase this if you have a much smaller than average head. Should be noted in product details that it runs small. Very sad to be returning.

The brim is medium size and does a good job of shading the face in the sun. It's comfortable and it works for me because it doesn't flatten my hair like hats and goes with e everything. I've only worn it a few weeks but it seems well made.

What a great hat. I bought it to keep the sun out of my face while at the park and kids' sports games. It does just that, without being heavy or bulky. I love that it's cotton and not plastic or straw.

Took this hat on a recent trip to Puerto Rico. Loved it - very chic, comfortable, and has excellent sun protection. It was very windy one day, and the hat blew off into the pool. I don't fault the construction of the closure, as the wind was crazy, but I mention it because the hat seemed none the worse for wear after having gotten soaked in the pool. Dried quickly and had no issues with reshaping. Love that it can be rolled up for travel.

I love it. I got the blue one and it looks just like the picture and offers the best sun protection. Absolutely no pin pricks of light get through the tight weave, and the fabric is nice and thick and strong. Some of the flimsy, but more expensive, big-brimmed hats I was looking at elsewhere on-line needed a wire to shape them, and some people complained the plastic wires used to shape the rim would break and then their hats couldn't hold a shape and the rim would just flop down in their faces, or there'd be a hole in the fabric after a year. You can bend and shape this hat without a wire and it holds. I think they got the hat size (23 1/2 in) wrong though. I tried a different hat on last week that was a size 22 1/2 and it was snug but not tight. This one is a bit tight around my head, but that will keep it from blowing off in strong wind - but I wouldn't want it any tighter. The 5" rim is true to size.

I have a small head so have trouble with hats. They are either not adjustble so too big, or if adjustable, I wind up looking like a pin head. This one is adjustable and does not make me look like a pin head. As others have said, it's lightweight, rolls up easily for traveling, and the open crown means it's cool and comfortable. Coffee color is great ... goes with so many things. I'll be ordering some as gifts for friends and family for beach, gardening, and trips to sunny locations.
