Afterwards I looked up the price on Internet and it was more expensive than any of the Tilley's hats. Yikes! I can't afford to replace it should I loose it, something I'm well known to do.

Anyhow, love the hat and am sold on using it as sun defense for all three weeks a year when the sun shows itself here.
