Bought a Seahawk in August for my big trip to French Polynesia in Sept. Also brought my Tilley. I started with my Shelta hat, and never used anything else on the trip. Took a few dunkings while I was SUPing and it held up great. Dealt like a champ with lots of rain, and with serious wind and sea spray on the zodiac rides. The fixed brim just makes such a positive difference in the feel and performance of the hat. Lots of little features that show you used real world experience to guide the development of this hat. Only thing I haven’t managed to test yet is real high temps and how well the Seahawk vents heat. But regardless, I’m a fan.
