A Real Hat For The Sun
I have bought both the white and the khaki hats for lazily sitting in the Provencial sun this summer. Once again another hat of very good value and once adjusted fits perfectly.

Both My Helmet And Me Are Old And Still Going!
I bought my French pith helmet 15 years ago at a Welsh honey bee museum whilst on holiday. It's still going strong having been used mostly in the garden, at my daughters sports day when she was nine, and having been posted in a sealed bag down to Frimley Park so that I could play "Lofty" singing 'whispering grass' at a skit during the end of course smoker! I've had happy days and lots of laughs with my pith! The liner partially fell out a couple of years ago, which was glued back in with UHU. It's a bit scruffy now but has plenty of life left. I've just bought an Indian pattern pith. My friend is Indian. I'll wear it at his next 'curry garden party'...He'll feel like he's at home!

Great Fun
It is fragile and cheap but it works and for the money I have no complaints.

The hat that started it all
This pith helmet was the first hat in my collection, and it laid the stable foundation of my ongoing friendship with village hats. I was very rough with it, so it fell apart after about a year, but I have since replaced it as I love it so much. Practical, durable and a pleasure to wear. Just don't take it out in the wind, especially if it's raining.

It was a great purchase. I have worn it to my allotment in the hot sunny weather and was able to wear a sweat band as well. It has been very eye catching other events like art exhibitions.

French Pith Helmet
I ordered the standard size since my normal hat size was within the stated range. However, when it arrived it was too small,being not a good head shape, and not having the necessary adjustment. A replacment was ordered in large which does fit ok. The support straps came unstitched within 2 weeks use. But once these little problems were repaired, the helmet does the job well. Only criticsm is the chin strap is of low strength and needs to be improved. In windy conditions it is necessary to use a chin strap but they need improving to be functional rather than decorative.

French Pith Helmet
I ordered recently and it arrived very quickly after only two days, and this time no adaptational measures were necessary. It fits perfectly and comfortably. I had to do some outdoor work on the hottest days of the year and put the helmet to a test. It proved a good and reliable protection from the sun, just like having one's own sunshade around. Unlike as it is the case with the "Indian Pith Helmet", the inner sweatband takes up the sweat and keeps it from running into one's eyes. So the experience is positive, apart from the sight which may be something strange in Germany. But why not do something against the trend.
As this helmet is no high-price article, it wasn't quite unexpected to find that it is a bit poorlier crafted than the Indian Pith Helmet. Apart from loose threads, also the inner lining was loose at several places, even at the borders. So I had to do some re-glueing in order to prevent the fabric from unravelling.
All in all, the French Pith Helmet is a good article.

My second pith helmet
I bought my first pith helmet from Oxfam 20 years ago and wore it constantly until it fell apart at the seams, literally.
Thought I'd never find a replacement so when I spotted this on the website I was over the moon.
Makes me, and everyone else, smile when I wear it!
Thank you, again, Village Hats - the best hat shop I've ever found, on or off line.

For the tropics of the Northumberland Coast
Covetted this hat when I saw it on the doorman of the E and O Hotel in Penang
Now I have my very own and look forward to telling the tale whilst gardening
