The hat itself is wonderful, wide brim, comfortable as advertised. However it is damaged by the packaging.
the seller packages it folded in half, thus destroying the brim with a permanent crease down both sides of the brim. On the Sunday afternoons website the instructions specifically state: Packing Instructions: PACKS FLAT DO NOT FOLD OR CREASE BRIM. So if you want a hat to arrive permanently creased, this is the one for you. However, I suggest you look elsewhere for one that won't be damaged on arrival.
No matter which direction your independent spirit takes you, the Compass will point the way. If the weather heats up on your journeys, flip up the panels of our convertible ventilation system to find the breeze. Smart brim design gives you plenty of shade in the front and a bit extra in the back for your neck. Whether around the yard or around the world, this hat won't steer you wrong.
