Blocks the midnight sun.

Developed and tested during Lapland's Arctic summer, Fjallraven made the Abisko Summer Hat to shield the always-present sun from cooking your brain like an over-easy egg. The hat's wide brim folds onto the sides of the hat for less flapping when you're hiking, and an adjustable chinstrap secures it to your head. G-1000 Lite fabric isn't too heavy and allows excess sweat to evaporate. A UPF 40 rating ensures your dome won't burn when subjected to intense sunshine.

  • G-1000 Lite (65% polyester, 35% cotton) fabric

For all the times in the sun!

Initially got this for a trip to the Florida Gulf Coast. Good protection and held up after taking a swim.

For all the times in the sun!

Keeps the Sun Off

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm kicking myself for not getting this hat earlier in the summer. I could have saved myself from more than a few instances of sunburned ears and neck. the full brim on the Fjallraven Abisko Summer Hat protects a lot better than the standard ball cap for long days under the sun. The brim has a nice shape, and looks less floppy than some other hats of this type. I ordered acoording to Fjallraven's size chart and the medium size fits my 57cm head nicely.

Only a freshwater hat

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought this hat for saltwater kayaking and on the second outing the snap buttons were already corroded. Great hat, bad accessories. I'm a big fjallraven fan but this makes a little dent on their armour.

That darn salt water is just too corrosive! Bummer.

How wide is the brim?

3 inches

But. . . I do have a big knife and a sweet hat (sans Crocodile teeth) thanks to Fjallraven. The Abisko Summer Hat is perfect head gear for both Walk about and City chillin. Breathable, Snaps, perfect brim, waxable - all elements of what is now my perfect hat.
