      Comments about Ventilated Sun Helmet:

      I purchased one of these helmets in 2007 and another in 2008. Both helmets are still functional although the headbands have been repaired because of rough handling. I use them during the spring through fall seasons for mowing and shooting trap and on the not-too-cold winter days for shooting. The helmets are light in weight, cool, comfortable and shade your eyes from several directions. The design allows great air circulation when riding a mower (and a small amount of protection from small limbs).

        Comments about Ventilated Sun Helmet:

        This is my third purchase of this model. I have a big collection of old pith helmets. This is my favorite because of the side vents. 100% plastic including the adjustable band. Regular hats get ripe in one day. With this you clean the band with soap and water, a couple of times a year and your good to go.

          Comments about Ventilated Sun Helmet:

          I was looking for a hat to wear in the sun that was well ventilated, lightweight, adjustable and would reflect the sun's heat. I can not describe how disappointed I was when I opened the box. The hat is well ventilated and lightweight, but the suspension system is almost non existent. I ordered two hats, one came out of the box with the suspension system broken. The support band has sharp edges making it uncomfortable. To top it all off, it does not adjust to fit my head. I am very disappointed in my purchase.

            My favorite hat for the heat

                Comments about Ventilated Sun Helmet:

                I had a white one for 10+ years. Great in the heat down here in Texas. The louvered side vents catch and funnel the air over your head. Coolest hat I've owned and I even re-painted it twice with Krylon Fusion paint. I plan on buying this beige one as soon as my current one wears out. I've been searching for a replacement, and Gempler's is the only place I've found it. The only issue is the adjustable plastic band has no sweat band, but I use it with a wet handkerchief between it and my head anyway to keep me even cooler.
