I guess that it is all a matter of opinion, but I think these hats are so cute! I read that someone said they were cheaply made. I did not find that at all with the ones that I received. They were fully adjustable with a velcro closure. The material is firm and not floppy, so the hat keeps it's bonnet shape and does not hang in your face. I loved that part about it, but I think some people would possibly think it should be softer. However, if it were softer it would be in your face! This hat does what it is suppose to do, keep the sun out of your eyes. It feels water resistant and folds up nicely for storage. I really think it is a great hat and would make a very nice gift for a gardener or anyone that needs a perfect sunhat!
