Functional, but dont love the shape
Nice materials, pretty cool for summer running, but I was disappointed in the look/fit. The photos make it look like a modern rounded crown hat, but mine has a pronounced point to the crown which looks kind of stupidIm not sure if thats the way they allare, or if mine was just poorly sewn. [It might not be an issue if it came in multiple sizes so I... Read More could pull it down a bit lower, but its a pretty deep hat on my medium-sized head.]

The Perfect Hat
So, this is the perfect hat for exercising. It keeps the sun and sweat out of my eyes. I actually wear this to rollerblade. The fact that it's washable is important; I usually destroy other hats with white salty deposits. But you just pop this hat in the washer and it comes completely clean. The white part does yellow over time but it goes ba... Read Moreck to white after washing. The shape of the hat bounces back, too, no matter how you handle it. The only negative part is that this hat isn't the perfect fit for my tall head. I'd like it to sit more like the guy in the picture, but there's quite a bit of room between my ears and the hat. I did say that this hat fits true-to-size, and it does. I have this problem with other hats, too. I just wish they made a larger size for people with bigger, taller heads. It doesn't affect my rating.
good all synthetic trucker hat for running
I was hoping this would be more form fitting on my head but I felt that it was king of sitting on top of my head. I tried it around the house but my head was just to big for it. I used two snaps which made if fit around but it almost didn't feel deep enough for my head. I ended up gifting it to my sister-in-law and she loves it. Just not the r... Read Moreight fit for my head. All synthetic is nice so you don't need to worry about stink as much as a cotton hat.
This hat looks good and I like the soft(ish) bill, but has a few flaws: It is hot. I was hoping for a good warm weather hat, but the front is really warm and makes my head sweat. However, it isn't showing any sweat stains yet. The smaller size and soft structure of the hat makes it so you have to wear it fairly tight, otherwise it kind of cre...

More sizes please
One size fits all is not a great plan for headgear. I like these truckers for running because they are pretty absorbent, do a good job of channeling sweat off of my head, don't get smelly super fast and hold up to washing really well. However, I'm a smallish guy and this hat looks ridiculously huge on my head. The crown swells outward giv... Read Moreing me a bulbous, "Mars Attacks" profile and the basket of the hat is deep enough that the hat sits down on my ears and pushes them outward in a Prince Charles kinda way. C'mon, you're Patagonia for God's sake! Offer S/M/L choices or something.

The details on this had a great call and it is lightweight, Bremmer is very flexible without bending, works sweat very well. The only drawback is that it runs small, specifically from the base of the head above the ears to the crown of the head. I really have to pull it down far and since the back very tight to make it feel like it is not going to ... Read Morefall off. However I do have a large head, typically wear anywhere between 7 3/8to 7 3/4 hat size.
Runs very small
I love the idea behind this hat... the materials and style are great. But... I have a normal sized head (I'm 5'10" and wear a medium everything) and I had to loosen the back strap all the way in order to put the hat on, and it's so shallow that it won't even pull all the way down onto my head. The hat that I received absolu... Read Moretely does not have the same dimensions as the one in the listing (unless the guy in the pics is very small).

Great hat, Wish it was floppy
This hat is incredibly comfortable! It's great for casual wear wicks sweat, and breathes pretty well. It does sit a little tall on you're head just because the foam front is quite large. I also wish it was a little more similar to the traditinal duckbill hat from patagonia, a little more on the floppy side so you could shove it in your po... Read Morecket and not worry about bending/creasing as much. But over all its awesome for running, casual wear, or anytime you need to shield your eyes from that fiery ball in the sky.
Dude, I look awful in trucker hats. But, I love the material of this hat, especially the breath ability of the vented mesh area. So, i removed the trucker padding with a razor blade and scraped any remnants with a butter knife. The hat slouches just a little but on the front panel but I’m so glad I did it. Great fit, so breathable, great fabric for... Read More trail running. Washes well which is good because it takes on sweat. Can’t say enough about this hat. Will purchase another and modify again.
This is the best!
I've been looking for a cap which i can use for running, cycling and just for casual wear. I've spent a lot of time searching in the web and patagonia caught my eyes. I watched 2 youtube reviews of their duckbill and duckbill trucker from their customers. This trucker cap is fashionable and has plain and simple designs. So, crossing my fi... Read Morengers with closed eyes, i punched in my orders on their online shop, this one and 2 duckbills(not trucker) knowing that the sizes of those might not fit my big head haha.. Package arrived in my doorstep in just 3 days here in singapore(amazing!).. Unboxed. Fitted. And yes!! It is a perfect fit for my big head. Actually it is still roomy maybe because im hairless. Just for reference, i am M-L or in some cases L in cap sizing. I think my head size is within 59-61cm if i remember it right. To you reading this. This trucker hat is awesome!
Great hat - very tall on the head
I like this hat. I have the unstructured duckbill running hat and this structured one. It absorbs sweat really well, is light on the head, and keeps its shape well. However, it is crazy tall - I feel like I'm wearing a firefighting helmet. I would love to see a middle ground between the unstructured head-hugging duckbill cap and this tall one.... Read More
Duckbill Trucker Hat
The hat is great, sits up off my head to provide ventilation underneath the non mesh portion. The melon heads complain about it being too small, but I could go a bit smaller. I must be a pea head. I have trucker and regular duckbill, like and use both, depending if I want to put in pocket during run or not. Great for diverting sweat and blocking su... Read Moren on the trail or road.
The best hat so far
I’ve has this hat for many years now, I use it and throw it in the washing machine, air dry and still look and feel as the first day. I have a “big head”, so yes indeed, it runs small, but not crazy small just a little bit tight, mine is adjusted all the way to the end and it still tight. Long story short, I’ve ran many marathons with this hat and ... Read Morestill love it!
Runs too small
Many, many reviews have the same complaint. They run small.
Hello Mike. We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with the fit of this hat. Please don't hesitate to contact our [Customer Service](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html) team if you would like to return it.
Love the hat, not the sizing
I gave the updated version a try for a few days and to my dismay, the sizing was not updated and it still runs too small for anyone with a larger head. At a 7 5/8s hat size this hat creates uncomfortable pressure on the forehead making it too uncomfortable to wear anywhere outside of the water. The elastic band does not stretch far enough to accomm... Read Moreodate the stretch required to fit right. Please make this hat in a S/M, L/XL like so many other hats you offer.........

I've always wanted one of these hat and while i was in NYC i got to grab one for the sweltering summer sun. My only wished there was an additional size (larger) for this design.

Best Active Flat Bill Hat Ever
I've had two of these hats since they first came out and can say they are my go to hats from anything from trail running to whitewater rafting. Breathes and dries incredibly well. Even the bill has wicking material,which is amazing! I would ask the designers to come out with a grey or black mesh. Also a wide range of colors solid earth tones a...
