Protect the ocean so it can protect us
Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.
We do our best to process and ship orders within 1-2 business days (Monday-Friday, excluding holidays). We kindly ask that you choose standard shipping where possible to reduce our environmental impact. If you have any questions about your order, you can reach out to our Customer Service team and we will be happy to help.

LIghtweight, airy hat, although a bit snug
As a "sufferer" of macrocephaly, I find this hat a bit too snug. I was excited because usually hats are one size fits all and this time there was an option for a large/XL size but I still found it a bit snug. That said, I do wear it and enjoy the color and feel. It is a great hat when you want to protect the back of your neck from the sun... Read More and help hide some of the sweat from your forehead! If Patagonia makes this hat again in fun colors, I would purchase it, even if they don't increase the size. That said, please consider making it slightly larger for us who suffer from having a big head! Thank you :-)
I was right on the edge between small and large and went with a small as most people said is runs a bit large. And I'm glad I chose S, because it fits just right. My wife also bought one, but a large as she apparently has a larger head than mine - funny new info to learn about your partner. I tested hers and the L was way to big for me so, i...

As others report, too big
Really appreciate the light weight, overall shape, and discrete logo tag, but as others reported, it's too big. For the price, I think Patagonia should offer S-M-L-XL sizes separately, and if you want to limit SKUs, drop the # of colors. But to be clear, the S/M is clearly bigger than S/Ms I have from other manufacturers. Don't fix it wit... Read Moreh a doofusy drawcord - plenty of other brands offer that option.
We appreciate your detailed feedback and we're sorry to hear that the sizing isn't quite working for you. Please don't hesitate to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it to your local Patagonia-owned store or online. We'll be more than happy to help!
The trail running hat you didn't know you needed!
Great for running to soak up sweat and then wring out. Designers, two suggestions: 1) Add a small snap to front brim and body of hat to allow a quick snap to go Gilligan style (front brim held up); 2) Add a rivet hole on brim on both sides of head so customers can run a cord through to fashion a stampede lariat chin strap for wind.
Cool Looking Hat
I really like the colors and style of this bucket hat. I just wish it would hold up better in a wash without it folding up so much and not being able to keep its shape.
Hi Andrew, we're so sorry to hear that the Wavefarer Bucket Hat didn't keep its form after washing. Please feel free to begin a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at your earliest convenience.
Runs very large.

Hey Jeffrey, thanks for the feedback. We're sorry to hear the hat was big for you. It does come in a small as well which has a 22.83" circumference. If you think a size down could help, you can begin an exchange on [this page](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Great bucket hat for general use
I have a larger head- usually I wear a large in most hats. So initially I ordered the L/XL, but it was too big. So I purchased the small, and although it wasnt quite perfect, it was much better! I bought this hat to wear while walking, hiking, and at the beach. Overall its a very nice bucket hat. It does cost more than cheaper alternatives, but y... Read Moreou get what you pay for. This hat is well made with quality materials. If youre looking for a good summer hat to shield you from the sun, this is it. The only thing that would be nice would be to include clips in the hat to attach a chin strap for windy days.
A small size should not flop over my ears.i have worn size M in the past. I find sizing has changed drastically at Patagonia over the years. Extremely back business model!!!

Nice lightweight hat
Id been trying to find a quick drying bucket hat that was well made and offered some sun protection. Its a nice hat, but does run a bit larger than youd expect. I bought the large, but it was too big, so I bought a small and it fit me a lot better. Only get the large if you have a really head, or a lot of hair! Anyway, great hat.
nice hat, runs really large!
It is a really nice hat that unfortunately runs really large. I have a big hat and wear a 7 1/2 in New Era hats. This one is an 8 at minimum. Currently waiting that the color I originally purchased will be back in stock and then will exchange it for Small.
