Gear Review

I hate to wear it.

It is a great hat for its purpose. I was given mine as an Xmas present a decade and a half ago. I think about bringing it when we go sea kayaking but I always leave it at home because I just can't stand the thought of wearing it. It is like the single most hat that the biggest goobs out there flock to. It is like a badge for REI members and people in the Mountaineers club. It is like one of the ten necessary essentials to being a complete and utter outdoor chode before you drive home in your Prius. Those of you who have seen the people I am talking about understand what I am saying. The dweeb male or female with short shorts and gaiters on, with a backpack filled with the ten essentials along with their trekking poles as they do the simplest of hikes. I laugh when a car load pulls up and they are like little clones wearing the same goob gear.
I bet the guys at OR are happy that they sell a ton of them. I just don't care to look like one of the strange people who wear them.

Wow, insecure much up on your perch? Thanks for not contributing even one useful word.

You are welcome... The truth isn't always nice. I was guessing someone would get their feathers ruffled. I was just wondering who would be the first. I said it was a great hat. For someone who doesn't know any better and doesn't want to look like one of the 'clones '. I would take it into consideration before buying one.

I don't even own this hat, nor am I going to disagree with what you said with your baggy clothes comment. I enjoy reading the reviews on this site because they are usually even marginally informative. What you posted was not a review, but rather a simple bashing of a product you don't like & your own stereotype for it. I appreciate people being brutally honest about things, but only if relevant to a review, which yours was not. I highly doubt people are going to care whatsoever if it hurts your ego if you wear this hat, which is about all I got out of your so-called "review."
