Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have rocked several Coal Frena classics in the past and have considered myself a Coal customer. The Frena's stood up to some incredible winters overseas and were really great hats, I still have them and wear them. I'm a fan of Coal.
THIS HAT, however, is a piece of crap. I'd try to be more descriptive, but I don't know how. It lasted one week before massive holes appeared on the top of the hat and the stitches running down the side started ripping apart.
No, I wasn't climbing with it, or wearing it on the mountain, or doing anything. I was just wearing it. It lasted one week and literally fell apart. I sent Coal pictures, a description, etc. Coal refused to send me a different type of hat for free unless I paid the price difference between the new hat and the Frena Light. They have basically lost me as a customer, not that it's a big deal as I buy a Coal hat once every two years.
Stay away from this piece of junk - buy the regular Frena or buy something from another brand.
Attached is a picture of the hat after two or three days of wear around a city.
