I've been upgrading my beach style all summer and started adding hats to my outfits. This hat is a deceptively simple, rustic look perfect for the beach. Blocks your face from the sun and goes well with a laid-back surfer look. I've gotten lots of compliments on this bad boy.
Scala hat is dope. Probably too pricy, but I was willing to splurge since its my lawn mowing hat and having something comfy brings me great joy.
Very soft pliable and easy to wear.
A great hat for protection from the sun! I traveled to Tortola and St. Thomas on a cruise and spent significant hours in the sun. This hat performed flawlessly protecting my head, face, and neck from the sun. Very comfortable, fit was exactly as described. The perfect hat for my purpose. I doubt it will wear out anytime soon, but if it does, I'll be back to buy another.
Fits great, perfect sun protection.
hats were too large. return in progress- hats being shipped back to you for a refund
Wife liked mine so much, she took it. I had to order another for myself! Great coverage, and very comfortable.
I already had a Scala Straw Hat that I purchased several years ago in Hawaii at a Scuba Diving Shop. That was my favorite hat I wore to work, hiking and on the boat. Well it now 2022 it was time to buy a new hat and retire my old hat. I was so happy to find you had the same Scala Lifeguard Straw Hat I just love the fit and the look. Thank you so much!!
Great hat. Added some paracord as a band, now it’s a lifesaver too. Fits all my hair…. Good shade, wide brim.
I just received my Stela Lifeguard hats. I am thrilled to be able to purchase them online. These are my 5th and 6th hats of this brand and style. I purchased the previous ones at Real Goods in Hopland, CA, which now has moved, and no longer have a storefront except for solar goods. I have lived 6 years in the high desert of Sedona, AZ, and in Northern California for the past 15 years. A good straw hat with a wide brim is essential in the Western sun, and can be absolutely life saving. I have had heat exhaustion several times while living in AZ, and it keys the body to panic mode when exposed to too much sun or heat. I also became allergic to sun on my skin, developing an extremely itchy rash with fluid filled blisters. I adore these hats, and I keep one in my car, and in my truck, to always have at the ready when out and about. I use them when hiking, and working in the garden, at the beach, even at restaurants when eating outside and there is not enough sun protection. I like the flexibility of them, the softness and strength of the raffia “straw”, the air movement that passes through, keeping my head much cooler than other hats. The only drawback to them is that there is not a smaller size than the Small/Medium, as I am a petite woman with a small head, 20 1/2” circumference. Thank you so much for my favorite hat in the whole world, and your fast delivery! From Sunny California, RD
