So I'm a tree planter working in Golden, B.C. I bought the chillba hat after seeing my sister's. This is the best rain-sun hat I've ever had. It has unmatched ventilation which is awesome on hot days and it's basically like an umbrella that you wear on your head. I've only had one day thus far where the wind was a bit too strong for it, but it seemed that if I tightened the chin strap it stayed in place pretty well. Even with the shipping charges to Canada I still payed roughly what a store what charge at retail value (roughly $60 Canadian). Best outdoor hat in existence (in my opinion..).
I got this hat to use at the beach when I go surfing. When I show up in California at Dana Point every year, the guys say, hey, the rice merchant is here again this year. The hat floats and has plenty of ventilation. As already said, it is a conversation piece; however, I don't know if it is a bird puller.
This hat is not for everyone because its a bit different looking. What it does is great shade for the head. The hat is super light weight and super comfy. It works fine even in wind. The adjustable headband and neck cord keep it on no matter what. I love it for anything i do outside.
When I go on the river I never forget this hat, perfect for keeping the sun off my neck and hell, its a great conversation piece! I really think that anyone who is comfortable with themselves should own one if they kayak, suhch a good deal!
I work and play around the water everyday, and this beauty keeps the rays off my melon. Thanks for the killer deals!
Great hat, good fit to my big head, well built.. Just buy it!
This is hat is clearly kind of crazy looking, but as the last reviewer stated, it does its job. I use mine the most when working outside, and occasionally while just relaxing creek side. Tried it out on a few paddling adventures, and unfortunately due to the chance of wind, it just gets left at home now.
Pro: Water does not get through to your noggin, nor does the harsh sun
Con: If its even a bit breezy out youll be wishing you had something else on, sits pretty high on the head
