Dorfman Pacific, founded in 1921 in Oakland California, is one of the largest full-line, in-stock headwear companies in the world. Season after season Dorfman Pacific has been expanding their Sun Protection Line and the 2012 season debuts the Scala Collezione, a lightweight, feminine, versatile hat that offers UPF50+ sun protection.
The Sacala Collezione features a 4 inch brim- and an external bow trim that actually is a functional sizing tie–so that the hat is truly one size fits all. I was happy that it adjusted to fit me, Midge – who is 6, and The Tween.
Another great benefit is its pack ability and recovery. It is light weight and bounces back into shape 1-2-3, therefore it can be easily stored in a beach bag or taken away on vacation. This hat is also ideal to wear at home for a walk and other activities like gardening. The styling can be paired with casual wear, beach wear and looks glamorous with a sundress. It is one size fits all and comes in classic and pop color ways including turquoise, lime, fuchsia, white, natural, tan and black.
I asked The Tween to model the hat for the purpose of taking pictures for the review… this is what I got:
I remember a time when I was worried about the child being “shy”….
