Kalgoorlie Wide Brim Soaka Breeze Hat

So far hat is very comfortable and stable in the breeze. I have not been able to test the wet cooling aspect yet as it has not been hot enough.

Light and comfortable

Beautiful hat, with a PVC mesh top to allow air to pass through. Very light and comfortable. Great on hot days. My son fell in love with it right away and he uses it as often as he can to protect himself from the sun

Mostly good

Bought one to replace the previous that I had for 11 years. I measured my head and ordered a size medium Soaka Breeze hat but when it arrived it was too small to fit me. I ordered a size large which I just received and it fits well, however, there is a distinct "line" in the hat, almost like a narrow wheel ran over the whole length of the hat. I didn't buy it to be perfect so it should be ok, I'll see how it looks after some use.


Very satisfied with the hats. Like that they are washable. Thank you!


great hat ,great value ,and prompt delivery
