Diggin' it

    This baby fits better than the one from last season in L/XL which was way too big. The improvement goes nicely in tandem with the colorway.

    P.S., this baby makes a great Frisbee. Think Kung Lao on Mortal Kombat II throwing his hat and you will have fun.

    Way Too Big!

      A product you need to try on in a brick and mortar store before purchasing, unless you like paying $6.95 return shipping. Patagonia needs to get their act together. S/M fits like an XL. Steer clear.

      Runs big

        My hat size is 7 1/4 (22 3/4 inch), I ordered the small/medium thinking it would fit okay and certainly not be too loose. I was wrong, the hat is too large for me and it sits loosely on my head looking a little ridiculous. The hat seems well made and my wife (who has a large head of hair, unlike me) is happy to keep it. A very nice hat but don't go by the sizing guide on this or the Patagonia site, if your hat size is similar to mine then look elsewhere for a hat that fits.

        Timeless elegance

        What can you say about a bucket hat that hasn't already been said? LOTS! There are few inventions that have stood the test of time..... the wheel, computers, the bucket hat. Anyone that is anyone rocks one these days. Do you? Get in the know. Get in the bucket hat! From the moment it was placed upon my dome it was as if I was channeling Hunter S Thomspon and Run DMC at the same time. So much style and grace rolled into one little tiny bucket hat. An experience that should be shared and enjoyed.

        Excellent hat

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I have used this hat during my hikes in the scorching Florida sun. I have had great protection. It is breathable, good quality , comfortable and also have had great compliments. Got the emerald color. I highly recommend it.

        Awesome bucket!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        First day I took this hat out I decided to hit the river. The weather was being erratic as it often is in Utah, a little bit of sun and then a ton of rain. Either way rain or shine this hat came through with flying colors provides shade right where you need it and detours water perfectly off the sides and it was some heavy rain for a good 20 minutes and never once felt any of it penetrate the inside. On top of being a perfect shade and water blocker the look, feel and material is top notch. I often have a hard time choosing hats mainly cause of the size of my big noggin and with dreads it adds to the circumference but the L/XL in this hat was perfect and the interior has a nice little stretch nylon rim that snugs onto your head if a gust of wind happens to catch you by surprise. Overall first day with this hat was amazing on the river pulling in not the biggest guys but quite a few plumb dudes. Definitely going to be ordering the other colors.

        Awesome bucket!

        Wavefarer Bucket Hat

          MY first Wavefarer was directly from Patagonia.
          I liked it so much, that I wanted another. Patagonia must be out of them ( or they are discontinued?)?
          Finally found them here at a fair price.
          They are lightweight, seem durable, comfortable and keep the sun out of my eyes. And just goofy enough to get compliments from my friends.
