A fishing essential.
Stand in the lake all day with a fishing rod in hand and Columbia's Carl Peak Booney Hat overhead. Omni-Shade equips this hat with sufficient UV protection for long days under the sun. Columbia made the Carl Peak out of stretchy canvas for a balance between comfort and durability, and an Omni-Shield treatment sheds any splashes that those fish cause when you get your catch.

- Q & A
One of the best
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I went to several outdoor stores over the course of 3 months looking for a well ventilated sun hat that fits right and has a somewhat stiff brim. I tried north face, Patagonia, Columbia. What I found is that most have a floppy brim which to me gets annoying. I own a north face from a few years ago, love it and still use it. Almost all of north face now has a floppy brim. Anyway, this Carl Peak hat which I couldn't find in a store, is fantastic. The ventilation is great (I live in Austin TX) and the brim was firm enough to not get in the way. It's one size, but has adjustment pulley. My head size is around 7 3/8, fits great.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
The brim on this hat was crooked, and couldn't get it to straighten out, so it didn't look dorky. Returned item.
