5 Stars What a Beauty
by Stephen Giannotti from Portland, OR on Aug 26, 2016
  This is an exceptionally well-made, good looking hat! I've owned a Sunbody Mexican Fine Palm Gus for several years now, and though the two hats are very similar in most respects, their differences are more apparent now that I own both. What a difference between the pressed Golden Gus and the extremely stiff Mexican Fine Palm Gus. Akin to the difference between the feel of a cotton Oxford shirt out of the dryer and the same shirt after being heavily starched and pressed. The Golden Gus is so much softer and to my head, more comfortable than the MexFPG. Interestingly, the MexFPG weighs in at 9 7/8 oz. vs. the 8 1/4 oz. for the Golden Gus. The bound edge on the Golden Gus and the lack thereof on the Mexican FPG is another visual difference between the two. Perhaps a dressier look to the bound edge. In all honesty, for me it'll be hard to go back to wearing the Mexican Fine Palm Gus now that I've own this Golden Gus. IMHO, and my HO only, the Golden Gus is the clear winner between the two GUS' in terms of comfort and ease of use, i.e. how it fits on your noggin. Both styles are equally attractive as well, with the Golden Gus being the dressier of the two.

5 Stars Excellent Sun Protection
by a member from Arizona on Jun 9, 2014
  I bought this hat from a dealer in Prescott, AZ on a very hot summer day. It was soft and pliable but keeps it shape very well. It is not still like other straw hats with stiffener. I like it just like this. I wear it out all the time in the hot Southwest sun. Even with shorts and flip flops. Great in a garden and outdoor work with a western flare that a western native can only pull off. The dealer on ly had 7 5/8 (I wear typically a 7 3/4 or 62 Euro). It was a little snug but I had a hat stretcher and let it sit under mild expansion tension with the stretcher and now it sits perfect. I love this hat. The reason I am on the site writing this review is that I looking for my next hat. I may get a wider brim one this time! Great product for not too much money.
