    My husband loves the different colors so he can coordinate his clothes. During the summer months this is the best coverage for any head. So much so that this recent purchase is really for my brother-in-law who NEVER wears hats! We do find that after years they get misshapen and hard to reshape. Replacements bands don't always work and not easy to insert. Some users can reshape over and over. It was easier to buy new ones and wear the old ones around the house doing chores. However, they don't carry as many colors as years before. People comment, start conversations and remember us where ever we go. We've started carrying Gempler information to give to people!

    The hat band does not fit as well as the one I had in the past that was made in America. This one "made in [*]" does not fit as well.

      Comments about Dorfman Pacific Pith Helmet:

      The sweatband / brow pad will need a wash occasionally but is not easily removed. The headband will warp as it dries. Re-fits each time you wear it.
      Enough sunlight penetrates that your head can blister. (I glued a piece of foil into the crown for protection.
