We are getting ready for our trip to Hawaii, and coming from Alaska I have to take precautions to protect myself from the hot Hawaiian sun. I knew I wanted a sun hat, but could not find one that looked good on me until I found this Croft & Barrow Packable Sun Visor at my local Kohl’s store.
Knowing that we are going to be doing some sight seeing, I didn’t want a plain visor like I wear out on the golf course, I wanted something a little more sophisticated, and that is exactly what I found!
The Croft & Barrow Packable Sun Visor is the same shape of most sun visors, but this one looks like it is woven from natural materials, yet it feels like a soft vinyl (it is actually a polyester blend). It was available in black, natural and white, but I chose the natural. The visor has a thin strap that wraps around the inside edge of the brim, with a dainty buckle on the right side. Just this one accent gives the visor a classy look.
I have tried to wear the visors that have a built in head band, (and clamp against the side of the head), but even when I try to stretch them out they give me a headache. I love the design of the Croft & Barrow Packable Sun Visor, it has a nice wide band that closes with a generously long three inch piece of Velcro.
The inside of the band is lined with a material that matches the color of the visor, and it is as soft as velvet. This acts as a sweatband to wick moisture and sweat away from the face. The wide brim is perfect for shielding my face and eyes from the sun.
When I tried the Croft & Barrow Packable Sun Visor on in the store, (looking in the mirror), I knew this was exactly what I was looking for. While I was carrying it to the checkout stand I showed my husband how I could fold it up and the visor bounced right back to its original shape. I didn’t even read the tag attached that says it’s “packable” until I got home and cut it off!
The Croft & Barrow Packable Sun Visor seems to be a one size fits all, as the tag reads “no size”, and with the extra long Velcro tab, it can easily and quickly be adjusted to fit the size of different individuals heads. I have it so the visor is the smallest possible, and it is extremely comfortable. This will be a pleasure to wear on my vacation, and I plan on taking it to the golf course when we get back home.
The cost of the Croft & Barrow Packable Sun Visor was $20, but was on sale at Kohl’s for only $12, which was a great price. Even though this is made in China, I feel it is of good quality and is a very dressy looking sun visor.
