To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The hat has good stretch, is lightweight and breathes well, making it good for even heavy workouts.
The "venting weave" on top was puckered from day one and has just gotten more and more unruly with use. What it looks like (in black) is that the hat is fraying apart, even though it's still attached as it was made. You're not going to look smooth and sleek in this, you'll look like you dug it out of a clothes hamper or garbage can. I'll update further after it's been washed a dozen times.
This hat is the fastest drying hat I have ever owned. It has had multiple soakings and it’s ready for wear almost immediately. The ventilation is superb. The only issue was the slippage of the adjustable strap, which is quite common with nylon. Doubling the strap through the buckle solves this.
