I've admired a friend's Wallaroo Hat and decided to order one. It's a delight: light, fits perfectly with an inside adjustment, cool color, comfortable on my head, and will go with me on hikes and foreign travel. So glad I got one.
Light-weight, cool and always elegant. The Sydney is made with subtle colors woven together into a thin, breathable polyester braid that coils into a circular crown. A generous 3 3/4"brim turns up stylishly on the edges.
- 100% poly-braid
- Hidden internal drawstring adjusts fit
- Handwash cold
- One Size Fits All
I had already purchased a Wallaroos hat at REI in green, and loved it, so I ordered one in ivory, assuming I was getting exactly the same thing. Unfortunately the material s somewhat THINNER than my original and does not hold it's shape as well. It seems to need an additional coating of "starch". It's still a good travel hat, but I was a bit disappointed in the lesser quality.
I like a wide brimmed hat for golf and this one is my favorite. The inside string adjusts nicely for keeping the hat tight in the wind or looser for other conditions. The mesh breathes well, making this hat cooler than most in hot weather. I own 5 in different colors!
