KAVU'S Fisherman's Chillba hat does it all. It's collapsible with a drawcord chinstrap with toggle keeps so the cap stays on your head where it belongs, while a stainless steel ring holds it in shape even after being folded and tucked in your pack.
The best rain and sun protector, and a proven conversation starter.
Reversible (to black), collapsible, and made of polyester, don't leave home without your versatile Fishermans Chillba.
Different and Effective
What sets this hat apart is the wind resistance you get COMBINED with 360 sun protection. The required chin strap, attached to a perimeter steel loop means there's wind resistant tension all around the hat. The front is a bit more susceptible to gusts, but only the strongest. Other 360 protection hats aren't like that; the brim will flop around. Also, tell me a hat that gives you that, but also compacts down to the size of a drink coaster? Lastly, like all 360 outdoor hats, it's not the most attractive thing, but it's at least somewhat interesting. Wind resistant, 360 sun protection, collapsible, doesn't look like total crap. This is the holy quadrinity of outdoor hats.
I have had my chillba hat for 5 years. It has held up well. I like it because it doesn't flatten my hair as much as other hats and my head stays cooler that with other hats. I have a somewhat latger head and the one size works well. I use it for gardening. Am buying another cause I love it so much.
