Heck, not sure why this hat is gender specific, but I liked the description and ordered it. Will plan to wear it if not using the umbrella I also purchased here - sometimes a hat is preferable. It is wonderful and fits my 23" head and has a removable chin strap. It is very attractive and the brim is stiff which is just what you want on breezy days or on your bicycle. Some sun hats act like a sail under those conditions.
