The Firebird Sun Hat reviews - Updated from the griffin sun hat Love these Hats!	Mark Spreeman	"This is my second Shelta, I needed a hat to protect my head and face from the Sun. I have had skin cancer removed from my face in the past and am doing everything possible to protect myself from the Sun. One great thing about this hat is the light weight and comfort of it. My head size was right between sizes, M/L a little tight and L/XL little loose. I got the XL and with the size adapter it is comfortable and fits perfect.   I was out at the Colorado river in May this year fishing, it was over 100 degrees. A great week of fishing, my Shelta Hat did its job in protecting me from the intense sun. Another great thing about this hat was that in the wind I didn't have to worry about it blowing off and losing it. Multiple cord systems were awesome. In the wind I use it under my chin, when it's calm I use it military style. The hard brim proved to hold up in the wind, not a floppy hat, and floated when I jumped in the river.   This is a true sportsmans hat!   Mark Spreeman " the-griffin-performance-sun-hat	What a great hat. 	 Bubba Brown	Just received my new Griffin. What a great hat. This'll overcome the only problem this type of hat has ever had.....the front brim folding up against the crown in the wind. Gathering cattle on my quad will never be as bad as it once was with my new Shelta Hat!!! I'll send pics after our branding session next month.  the-griffin-performance-sun-hat	I purchase hat for Hawaii trip. 	Maryann Spreeman	"I purchase hat for Hawaii trip. This is the perfect hat for anyone with adventure in mind! Used for kayaking up river and standup paddle also! When wet bill stayed straight to keep sun off of your face. Hiking in the rain same result! This hat is the best I have found for water sports of any sort, Will buy another!! " the-griffin-performance-sun-hat	This model (Griffin) fits a lot better than the Seahawk for me since I have a smaller head	Bob	"This model (Griffin) fits a lot better than the Seahawk for me since I have a smaller head. I took the strap off (hate them) before sailing in the S.F. Bay. It still never blew off in the 30 knot winds. A friend lost his Tilley almost immediately. And you can't go back in a sailboat and retrieve it. The staff was very easy to work with when I wanted a prepaid label to return the one that didn't fit. Totally helpful.    " the-griffin-performance-sun-hat	Very useful hat. 	 Julius E. Daniels	"Very useful hat. The only problem I have is the rubbing of the back of the hat on my backpack brain when I fill the extension collar of the backpack to the same level as the back of my head. Not a biggy, if you don't move your head on a gimble like I do. heheheh. Good quality and craftsmanship" the-griffin-performance-sun-hat	Fantastic hat	Anthony T	"I ordered the Griffin in both M/L and L/ XL since I am in between sizes. Went with the larger size. Construction is excellent.  Wore it to my son‰Ûªs soccer game and the hat held up great in very windy conditions. Using this summer for hiking, white water rafting, etc.  and I believe this hat will do just fine protecting my head. Also:  Called customer service a couple of times regarding sizing and care and they were professional and helpful. " the-griffin-performance-sun-hat	The yard and beyond....	JASON FLEISHER	"I purchased the Griffin for backpacking and fishing in Arizona. Even in the cool days of winter the sun is brutal in the Superstition wilderness and the Mogollon Rim. I have worn it on numerous trips in AZ, CA and Utah over the last few years and love this hat!! It works great in rain, remains comfortable  and drys quickly when wet. I also wear it through the summer  doing yard work in 100+ temperatures.  My dog has even tried to eat it...twice! Unfortunately I have had to patch it both times but it still looks good! What I am trying to say is that the hat is durable and seems to stay cleaner than is should. This hat is very well build and I love the stiff visor!! it really makes a difference. I know that it has helped keep the sun off of me. I will purchase again and would strongly suggest this hat to my friends! " the-griffin-performance-sun-hat	I love this hat!	Mike	"I coach football outside in Colorados blazing hot summers.  I've tried several different brands of floppy hats, but always went back to my old Army boonie cap, which is heavy and gets soaked in sweat.  The Griffin hat changed all of that.  Here is a VERY lightweight hat with a firm brim that keeps its shape and  keeps my bald head out of the sun.  I‰Ûªll be buying another one in a solid color to wear for other activities.  " the-griffin-performance-sun-hat	Durable equipment with attitude	Jean	"The Griffin has been part of my sport equipment for over a year now. I wear it when swimming in The Caribbean, boating in the Pacific and hiking with my stock dog in the desert.  It keeps the sun out of my eyes and off my neck. I am not a hat person. My dermatologist strongly recommended I embrace a hat after my second skin cancer removal surgery on my face. I went online and found Shelta.  These hats are just what they claim. Hard working equipment with attitude. The pocket on top is perfect for your car key. The strap allows me to hang it down my back when I am not using it and cinch it under my chin when motoring or swimming. And yes I mean swimming. As in diving through waves with my hat firmly on my head. HELL YES!" the-firebird	Love the Hat	Marc Averill	"I have had my Firebird for a week and have taken it on three kayaking trips and a hike in 80‰Ûªs to mid 90‰Ûªs temperatures.  My head has stayed cooler than any other previous had I have worn ‰ÛÒ I often shed my head frequently during warmer weather hikes.  Not with the Firebird.  I must say I love this hat.  The Khaki color is the right shade of Khaki for my taste ‰ÛÒ more of a military khaki.  Good construction and being assembled by hand, there are ‰ÛÏimperfections‰Û to give the hat character.  Having spent time behind a sewing machine reproducing historical garments, I appreciate the lack of uniformity.  Great correspondence with Jurgen at Shelta before I bought and my hat shipped the same day it was ordered.  " the-griffin-performance-sun-hat-in-desert-camo	great hat	Adam	"I had been search for the perfect fishing hat to protect myself from the sun.  Moat of them look silly but settled on one until i found Shelta Hats.  Having the better brim is huge.  All the others where flimsey and would be a pain in windy locations.  This hat fits great, stays put and the brim does not go flying when it is windy.  Only thing is i wish they made the griffin in white.  I went with the camo which is good too " the-griffin-performance-sun-hat-in-desert-camo	Best hat I've ever owned	Steve Day	"I recently purchased a Griffin Performance Hat for a 5 day fishing trip 300 miles into Mexico.  I absolutely love this hat!  I was fishing in full sun 8 hours a day.  The Griffin protected my face, ears and neck from sunburn.  Best hat I've ever owned.  Thanks so much.
