This hat breathes!
This hat actually sheds heat. I'm wearing it while working outdoors during summer and finding this cap much cooler than my other caps. The fit is a bit deep for my head - just about touches my ears. It's not a problem for me, but it's close... I hope they use this material to make shirts and pants and shorts. It's lovely to feel... Read More the breeze and have the spf protection :)
Hi Michael, thank you for submitting this review! We're so happy to see you're pleased with the breathability of this hat! If you're interested in related products, we have a number of Airshed items [here](https://www.patagonia.com/search/?q=airshed&lang=en_US). Please reach out if we can be of any help at all!
Great hat, but a little big
Based on the reviews, I thought this hat would fit great. I am a smaller framed female but apparently I have a big head because I generally need to buy larger hats. This hat covered my ears and the bulk part in front was raised pretty high off my head. It fits my 11-year-old son great though so I gave it to him. I love the overall weight and materi...

The best hat they have ever made. Hands down.
Used this hat for my PCT Thru hike and it was breathable, light, and dryed super fast. I've used a bunch of their trucker hats but this one was hands down the most comfortable. After 2700 miles its starting to degrade but that much sun and 2 or 3 washes I guess I would expect that. Will be getting another if they continue to make them for the ... Read MoreCDT.
Practical sports hat looks great too
This hat is great for sports such as running or mountain biking because it is very light and wicking. As it dries so quick it can also be used for paddle boarding and other water activities. Very functional but looks great too for casual wear - I would definitely recommend!
Light, breathable but color fades
I love wearing this on long runs to keep the sun off my face and absorb sweat. It looks and feels great. My only complaint is the black dye quickly fades in the sun, resulting in a dark rust color that is very noticeable when I wear it with other black clothing. I have dye issues with all of my Patagonia hats, whether its permanent discoloration fr... Read Moreom sweat lines or exposure to sunlight.

Hi Tim, it's a bummer, but sweat will bleach out darker colors. We understand this is problem and we'll work to find a solution. In the meantime, please feel free to begin a [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) or exchange under our Ironclad Guarantee.
Great Cap with One Disappointing Design Flaw
I really like this cap. It wicks very well and is so light that I forget I'm wearing it. Seriously, I was wearing it under a sun hoody and put a climbing helmet on top of that and wore it all day without noticing until I took the helmet off hours later. But the one thing that actually really bothers me about the cap is the velcro. Velcro on a... Read More hat is, I think, generally not a good choice. The hard side can snag hair if it faces in towards the head, or it can snag hoods if the hard side faces out. On this cap, the hard side faces out and it constantly snags the inside of my hoods. I often hike in a sun hoody so this happens a lot for me. I can see some damage on the hoody too from where the velcro catches it. While I think this is a great cap, and I'll continue wearing it for now, I think it would be a lot better if Patagonia gets rid of the velcro altogether and changes the adjustment method to either a more basic snap closure or slider and buckle.
Good cap just sizing - one size isn’t quite right
The cap is great. Light and keeps its shape without too much rigidity and stiffness which is quite a bonus. Usual ethical principles which is great. The size is kind of ok - not bad enough to return but doesn’t quite fit around the top of it because this is not adjustable so has to fit everyone. The adjustable part is the Velcro at the bottom and b... Read Moreack which kind of works to make it stay on but it’s just not an ideal fit across the entire hat. Could be better but good enough.
The best hat I've ever owned
I searched high and low for a light, moisture wicking, athletic hat that didn't stain or fade. I purchased one from Lulu L*m*n and the shape was awful and generally very uncomfortable.

I will buy this hat for as long as they make it.
Love this hat
I bought the Airshed hat for the color. Most of my backpacking gear is gray to blend in with the Sierra granite but some time you might want or need to be found, so I needed something bright. But I am loving the hat in general too and I am not a hat person at all, preferring visors. Air just seems to flow through this hat and it is light, almost u... Read Morennoticeable, to wear. It's a one-size-fits-all and so a little loose on the smallest setting but it stays put anyway and there is no constriction. I'd definitely recommend it and might even have to buy another in the blue.
The best hat I've ever worn. It looks awesome, it feels comfortable, and it stays in place. I initially purchased to use as a running hat but I've adopted it for daily wear. Head never gets itchy with it on and I can wear it all day with no discomfort. More colors and patterns would be cool!
Air shed Cap
Really nice cap love the colour, I have a small head so strap has to be pulled really tight, could do with strap being a little closer to cap for better fit.

Fantastic daily cap
Other than the logo being too small and to high on the front substrate of the cap, it fits well, breaths well, and cleans well. I bought it because of its use of recycled plastics and I dont know if I will ever buy another cap other than this one again. Recommendation: make a five panel version and you would have a ton of orders for this fantastic ... Read Morecap material line.
This hat has worked great for running, keeping the sun and my hair out my eyes, it is breathable comfortable and light, the only improvement I can think of is to somehow make it more washable, with sweat it get mucked up after 6-mos or so and it does not come out of the washing machine well, or maybe I just need better instructions for washing
Great fit, fades fast
The lightweight material and appearance are as good as advertised. This hat will keep the sun off your face, let your head breathe, and make you look cool.

Nice Fit, Breathable, but Color Fades Fast
I purchased this cap in black. It was great for long runs. I noticed the black began to fade after only a couple of weeks of sun exposure. After hand washing a few times with mild soap, I have noticed the black has faded into a dark brown hue. It is fine for running but will not match other garmets that are closer to true black. For the price, I wa... Read Mores hoping the aesthetics would last longer. I still love Patagonia, but this product wasnt a win for me.

I love everything about these hats (I bought all the colors), but the cinch tab in back is about 1 too short. Great material, solid color choices, well constructed.

Limited circumference adjustment
Overall this is decent hat. It's volume is somewhere between the full on trucker and the low profile options. As others have mentioned, the available circumference adjustment is quite limited towards the larger size. I've had to extend the velcro closure to the last few strands to get the thing on, and at that, it's still a tight fit... Read More. Thanks.
This is the first Patagonia hat I have purchased from the website. The hat breathes well and dries quick. It is very light, and I cant wait to take it on more adventures.

Not for larger heads
Was a nice enough hat, but didn't fit. I wear 7 5/8 size hats and like them slightly loose. Hat barely fit even with the strap all the way loosened.

Thanks for the feedback on sizing; we'll definitely pass this along to our product designers, Mike! As this Airshed Cap is a "low crown" fit, you may prefer the slightly roomier "mid crown" fit of some of our other [hats](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-accessories?prefn1=fit&prefv1=mid-crown). Please reach out to our Customer Service if you'd like assistance to return your cap.
As soon as I saw this online I purchased it. I have to wear hats that do not have mesh in the back as I shave my head and get sunburn. But my other hats are heavier material and I sweat like a pig.

Tried this cap after being impressed by the utility of Patagonia's Airshed pull-over and found it also to be a valuable addition to my gear inventory.

I've never written a review before but am very impressed with this hat. I bought it to replace a cotton ballcap for running... the cotton hat was a stinky mess, not matter how it was "cleaned."

Extremely comfy and big plus for able to fit smaller head
I used to wear my trucker all day everyday and love it (Casual, hiking..). However, the crown is still a bit too big for my small head and it is not the most breathable when my head is heating up.

This cap killed my airshed pro pullover
This is a cool cap. Easy fitting, good looking and super breathable. I pair it up with my airshed pro pullover for my everyday wear and running. They work so well together at the first week.

A Trail Runners dream hat
Patagonia once again blows me away. Ran with this hat during my first 100 miler this past weekend. From the light material yet sturdy fit, this is the best hat I have ever ran with. Patagonia takes pride in their products and it shows. Incredibly functional. Dont waste your money on other hats, this is all you need.
Great stretch fit cap replacement
I was very bummed that Patagonia discontinued the P-6 Stretch Fit Cap a couple of years ago. I’ve been looking for a replacement since then and I think I’ve found it!
