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.

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.

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.
