Have a question about this product?
- How does the on size fits all work? Is it an adjustable inner headband ?
- There is an adjustable head band to accommodate for different size heads. The head band adjust similar to a baseball cap with plastic snaps.
I bought the tan version a couple years ago and it is still fantastic at keeping my head cool. I live in an area with hot humid summers and used to wear an Amish straw hat, but the straw pith helmet works better. My granddaughter stood on the helmet and dented it. I pushed the dent out and you can't tell it ever happened.
I am a big fan of sun hats. I have a number of different types--and for me they are quite necessary. I have had several different pith helmets as well during my life of 70+ years and have always liked that type of hat. I like baseball caps but pith helmets and other sun hats keep my head cooler. I have several plastic versions but they can be a bit warm in our hot summers of central California. I discovered the straw versions this year and liked the idea. We don't get very much--if any--rain here in the summer so the straw hats work well out here. I purchased the tan version, received it quickly and really like it. The quality is here, and the straw helmet is quite comfortable to wear. I have a 7-5/8 hat size so not just any of these helmets will work for me. This one from Forestry Suppliers is the best one I have found on line in quality and comfort. I recently ordered a second one as well--in white to go with my tan one. As you can see, I am a big fan!
