I've only used this hat for a few weeks, but I can tell that this hat is well made and I like the weight of it. It keeps the sun off my face and the brim does not cover my view. The pocket is big enough for house and truck keys, id, debit card and a few bucks. It's way better than most to all other bucket hats out there, good for a sunny day and I know it will help during rain. A must buy.
