I LOVE hats (both for workouts, and day to day wear) but am very picky about fit. For the most part, I find a lot of the cloth athletic hats too flimsy and too shallow to fit me the way I want. The SUP Hat is frickin' awesome! I bought it in black, and returned to grab the white printed one, and would buy it in every colour.
It's a great fit, nice and deep and pulls down over the tips of my ears the way I like (I have a big head, and fit can be difficult.) It's an awesome fabric- cool to wear, quick to dry, easy to wash after a workout. The BEST thing about this is the pliable adjustable plastic closure on the back. I HATE velcro closures on my workout hats, because I can't toss them in the washing machine with anything else, since the velcro snags and ruins clothing. With this hat, I was able to machine wash it with other clothes with no problem. (I also find that velcro catches and ruins your luon and other stuff if you toss the hat in your gym bag, for example.) I really enjoy not having to worry or "babysit" this hat the way I do with velcro closure hats. Also, the plastic closure on the back is softer than you'd find on most traditional hats, so it doesn't have that stiffness that can be uncomfortable sometimes to wear, or bothers my hair or ponytail. Finally, one last thing I love about this hat is that since it doesn't have a zipper pocket or reflectivity or anything, it doesn't look so athletic or workout-ish, and I can get away with wearing it day to day. It just had a nicer more casual look when compared to a lot of the running hats, which I can appreciate when I want to throw on something to protect my head from the sun, or just when I can't be bothered to style my hair. :)
All in all, the SUP is a WIN. Thank you so much for this hat and I hope you make many many more colours!

Not the greatest
I bought this hat online apprehensively as it is "final sale". My local store didn't have it so I couldn't try it in person. It is cute, but it fits strangely. I have a pretty big head so I find that most women's hats are too tight on my head. I usually buy unisex or men's. I took a chance on this one, but it is a little too big (even for my head!) The bottom of the hat is long, if that makes sense. So it is either over top of my ears (a weird feeling) or under my ears, pushing them out and making me look a bit like Dopey from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". I had high hopes...and now have a hat that I don't want to wear. It is high quality and cute. Too bad it doesn't work for me.

same name, DIFFERENT hat
The name is the same, but what made the What?s Up Hat a winner was the Velcro adjustable strap. Now it?s just like any other hat with the annoying back closure. Why keep the same name when one of the main features was changed?

Been a lululemon shopper for years but this was my first hat purchase. I bought the crosscourt petal color and it's even prettier in person! I'm petite with a small-ish head, however I find the hat still fits me. The hat is easy to adjust. Like other reviewers have said the hat does come over my ears a little bit if I wear the hat completely on my head. But for me I like the "trucker" style of it, so the hat sits slightly above my head. I've tried other lulu hats before purchasing this one and I liked this hat the best for its nice brim size. Overall, a great lulu purchase, now I'm just waiting for more colors!

Over the last 3 months I have been collecting this hat. I purchased my first one with the prickly pear print (adorable) and have since picked up the nimbus, cross court petal and just scored the blue star crush print on mark down.
I reach for this hat every time I walk out the door whether I am going for a run, walking the dog, running errands or just want to look super cute. It has a great headband feature that really does wick away the moisture. I've washed a couple of my hats in the washing machine using a hat shaper and they have come out great. I can literally throw this over a cute, but unwashed ponytail or when I leave my hair down.
The graphics are super cute and the fit is wonderful. I don't have a problem with it being too big and I love how the hat comes down over your ears and the bill is a tad larger for more face coverage against the sun.
All around great hat and my new favorite!

Perfect for any style
I've had this hat for about a month and can wear it up or down with any style. I can wear it with a JCREW skirt and causal top, athletic attire, you name it. It's comfortable, breathable - oh I should mention I live in Phoenix, AZ and this hat continues to have both comfort and breathability. The price is reasonable too.

I couldn't get this hat in store, so I ordered on line. I was hesitate but I order on a Monday and recvd in on Wednesday. Super fast shipping and no cost for shipping which is wonderful.
I love love the hat, it is airy at the back so your head doesn't sweat, and super chic looking. I ordered the black one
Love love love

Perfect Workout Hat
I needed something to keep my bangs from flopping in my face while teaching a group fitness class. Headbands fall off, bobby pins fall out, and hats make me too hot.. until I tried this one. It is absolutely perfect. I stay nice and cool without my long hair hitting me in the face. Could not be more pleased with this item. I intend on getting multiple designs.

Can't get enough
This hat is a must have! I'm not a runner so I wear mine simply casually to all of my kids sports during those hot summer days! Great large brim but a nice vented mesh so it is not a "hot" hat. I own 3 of these and can't wait for more colors!!

Has potential, needs some tweaking
I love the look of trucker hats, and was intrigued by the concept of a trucker hat designed with running in mind. In that regard, it's a miserable fail! It has a cheap plastic adjustable band on the back, and no matter which hole I use, I can't get a good fit. It's either too loose or too tight. My only choice is to wear it on the loose fit, so when I took it on a test run, the sweat from my forehead made it even more sloppy loose. I do like the wide brim, and I think I will get a lot of use wearing it for casual bad hair days, and to the beach. Don't buy it if you're looking for a run hat! And Lulu, please create an adjustable band on the back that doesn't look and feel like cheap plastic.
