      Perfect for people who have allergies to synthetic materials, it is hard to find hats made with 100 percent natural cotton. Great UV protection in the hot sun, very breathable.

        Comments about Outdoor Research Transit Sun Hat:

        I have a big head and have a hard time finding hats that fit comfortably. The XL size of this fit me with room to spare. I can wear it loose for comfort, or cinch the shock cord in the headband and/or the chin strap to hold it a little snugger when it's windy. The vents work well. I can feel the tiniest breezes cooling my head.

                  This is my second hat - same size and style. Bought it for the beach, but use if for hiking, camping, fishing (even in the rain) and it works out nicely. I understand the meshing is an issue for side snaps for the brim, but they would be nice. However, the neck cord will hold up the sides.

                                Since UV rating is a function of weave and fabric density, I would have to say that the mesh panels do not offer a rate able UV protection.

                                There is a cinch cord at the back of the hat that will adjust out or tighten. A hat size of 7 5/8 is well within the head size that this hat will accommodate.
