Something I love about this hat is the skull detail on the back. It's not in your face, but it lifts it from being a run of the mill "kiddy" style hat. Something that is very useful if a hat is likely to be used for a couple of years or more. What a child likes at 3 will no doubt be very different at age 6, but there is little that will put them off using this hat for several years.
The material is hard wearing and easy to wipe clean. Khaki may not be the most exciting colour in the world, but it goes with all colours really, which is essential for a hat, it needs to be able to go with as many things as possible!
I have to be honest. Ethan didn't take to this hat as quickly as I did. However, with some persuasion, he is now happy to wear it. He told me it was uncomfortable when he first wore it, but I think that was because he wasn't used to the feeling of a hat with poppers at the back of it. He quickly got used to this and hasn't mentioned it since. The only other issue is that he insists on wearing it back to front (Fresh Prince style) which means that I can't used the detachable flap - because obviously he'd be rendered blind and look pretty silly!! I don't know why he insists on wearing it like this, maybe he thinks he's living in 1989.. I don't know. It's not really that much of a big issue I suppose, and by next summer, he may well have grown out of it!
I'd recommend this hat to anyone wanting a stylish practical hat with the added reassurance of the equivalent of factor 50+ sun protection.
