I understand that it is a straw hat, but the reeds/straw is very fragile and cracked very easily. I now have a hole in the top of the hat and the brim is cracked. I wear a 7 1/2 fitted hat and ordered a L/XL straw hat because I don't like it too snug. It fit comfortable to my taste, but the adjustable chin strap does not lock and the hat blows off in the wind because the bead does not hold and just slides down. I loved the style of the hat and color under the brim...I just wish it was more durable.
