In the front forehead area that's a thick strip of fabric that's designed to wick sweat. I normally don't like sweat bands because they tend to trap heat and make me hot, but this hat's partial sweat band doesn't seem to contribute to overheating. On really hot days (over 90 F) I simply spray cool water on the sweat band so the wet strip will actively cool my forehead and keep me feel more comfortable when working out in the hot sun. The crown fabric is a bit stiff due to water repellent coating but it's not overly hot and it can double as a rain hat when the rain isn't heavy. The mesh sides provide plenty of ventilation so it's quite comfortable as long as there's some kind of breeze or if you are on the move.
I bought the medium size and it's plenty big for me. The back adjustment as well as the neck cord keep the hat on me even in the wind. there's no velcro to mess up with your hair, and the pony tail hole is rare for hat of this style. I have long hair so I thread my hair into the hole as a loose pony tail. It keeps my neck cool. the brim is wide enough in the front but won't block my view. The problem I have with most sun hats are (1) too big; (2) too deep in the crown area or brim too low that they will block my vision; and (3) too hot because I am a big head-sweater. This hat doesn't have any of these problems. It's a great design with lots of attention to details that make it super practical and still decent looking.
Note that this is a sport hat and not a high fashion statement. I wear it for hiking/running or doing outdoor sports when I need to keep my head cool and vision clear. It goes well with my athletic clothing. More over I can keep it on while driving because there's no back brim to hit my car's headrest, and it's also compatible with high back pack. I bought another SA hat (The Lotus hat) for non-sporty casual occasions as it goes better with my casual dresses. SA makes great sun hats for different occasions.
But, I needed something to wear on a 9-day sailing trip in the sun. This was PERFECT! I didn't get burned, it was completely adjustable, fit perfectly, and it was NOT hot!! The under-chin strap was necessary in the wind and I am now a hat convert (well, sort of).
Others in my group tried it and were surprised at how cool it was in comparison with their hats and I think I might have sold a few along my travels. Being on a sailboat, in full wind and sun, the flap in the back provided fantastic protection for my neck (and ears). Great product!!
