Product Review: Kerrits Sun Lid

Product claim: keeps you cool and protected from the sun.

Review: I ordered this hat from SmartPak; it cost $18.

Pros: A very cute hat, this lightweight sun lid does a nice job of keeping the UV rays off the ears and neck. It's long on style and I've gotten some nice complements. The ponytail port is a bonus.

Cons: It runs large so does not stay on snugly especially while riding (though one could argue that I should be wearing a helmet while mounted anyway).

Bottom line: I like it for sun functionality but wish it stayed on more firmly-- a brisk wind can take it right off. For cleverness and sun protection, I recommend it.
