      Comments about Raffia Straw Hat:

      The hat is durable and works well in hot, sunny climate. I got a size 8 head. So I have to stretch the hat a size up to fit well. I have been purchasing these hats since 2003. They last about a year and half before they wear out.

      won't tolerate wind

      By Jack Veggie

      from Bayview Texas

      About Me Practical

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Great shade

      Cons

      • Wears Out Quickly

      Best Uses

      • Indoors away from wind

      Comments about Raffia Straw Hat:

      Within 12 hours of use, 3 out of 3 (one was a warranty replacement) fell apart. A fishig line woven into the brim pokes out and eventually works about a foot out, leaving the brim spineless and floppy. Gemplers was good to replace the first one, however.
