I HAVE BEEN HUNTING FOR THIS HAT FOR OVER FIFTEEN YEARS! I BOUGHT MY FIRST ONE AT A FESTIVAL, AND IT HAS EVENTUALLY LOST ONE OF THE BALLS ,WHERE IT DIDN'T FLARE OUT AT THE END, I FIXED IT;BUT FOR THE LAST 4 OR 5 YEARS, I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR AN EXTRA ONE, JUST IN CASE I COULDN'T REPAIR IT AGAIN. I CAN GRILL IN THE RAIN WITH HANDS FREE TO DO OTHER THINGS, I'VE USED IT IN THE POOL, WHILE FLOATING AROUND--YARD WORK, WHEN ITS SPRINKLING--ITS THE COOLEST AND NO ONE ELSE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS ONE LIKE IT! YES I ADMIT, IT GETS A LOT OF LAUGHS AND SECOND LOOKS, BUT OH WELL I AM ENJOYING IT!
I ENJOY IT SO, MUCH I EVEN GOT A BACK UP, JUST IN CASE IT TAKES, ANOTHER 15 YRS OR MORE TO FIND ANOTHER UMBRELLA HAT.
BE PREPARED FOR THE LAUGHS AND STARES HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THE HAT!

great purchase/good price
I purchased these umbrella hats for our hand bell choir to use with a Noah's ark presentation. They were a hit. I order quite a few times a year for church activities. Great place for good bargains

I bought these to make Jellyfish costumes (goole it). I found that the elastic which holds it on the head was too tight on all of the KIDS that I tried it on. My solution was to remove the elastic and attach the open umbrella to a separate hat/ball cap. That way it was easier to put on and off. Ideally these would have been clear/opaque or a light blue or lavender, so that when lights are attached underneath they show through the outer surface. I ended up having to spray paint the "beach ball" colors on mine and it really wasn't the answer. I ended up finding some elsewhere that were a light blue...they cost a little more, but for MY project, the better choice.

The umbrella hats are cool and lots of fun. Everyone likes them. COOL! BUT, the beany propeller hat is a piece of junk-o-lah... would not suggest anyone purchase one of these hats.

The elastic band is too tight for most adult heads.

Good Hat for Money
Our hats arrived intact and in working order! They will be the final stop on a Treasure Hunt to find the snacks for the party! My son loves them!

I love these umbrella hats! I only needed one, but I bought 4 becase of the great price! I also know, that with repeated wear, they're not going to last forever. Now I've decided to wear them during our city's festival and parade this summer - hoping I can talk everyone else into doing so, as well! Thanks OTC!
