Perfect hat to have if you live or going somewhere near the beach area. It is super portable and folds very easily without occupying any space at all in your backpack. Decent shade area coverage to protect your eyes from the sun going almost all around your head. The top part offers a well ventilated area as it is open and secures firmly thanks to the velcro straps that it has. It comes included with a drawstring that you can use to secure it even more on your head for windy occassions.
