    Nice hat, not my style

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    Got this hat to replace my favorite hiking hat which was lost on a cross country trip last Spring. Wanted something water resistant and warm so picked this one out. The smallest size offered is a small, which is what I got, but it was still a bit big for my tiny lady noggin. Style-wise it felt like a bucket hat on, a little floppy with the soft shell, which is not the look I am going for so. I think it would be perfect for water sports, fishing, etc...needless to say, I am still on the hunt for the perfect hiking hat.

    Best Shelter for your head

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I loved it so much I bought it twice! Only because I lost the first one. I love this hat, it is long lasting and durable. Withstands me accidentally crushing it with the back seat of my car, to going backpacking on the coast. My head size is 21 cm and I purchased the size small. It fits like a glove I can wear it straight on my head or a little lifted depending on how Indiana Jones I'm feeling that day.

    We both have one, and always will!

    These hats are fantastic for any activity from backpacking trips, to fishing, canoeing, or just out and about. They're cool and classic and do the job. My guy has a tin cloth hat that he never uses because its so heavy - if he ever needed it bc of weather, a warmer hat would've been the better choice. We like this hat much much better. The shelter cloth is lighter while still shedding water and not being too stiff or hot. It keeps sun off of your face, provides respite from black flies and mosquitos, and holds up better than any other hat that either of us have had. I only wish they made it in another color so we weren't matching hat geeks out on the river.

    -These do lose their color in the sun fairly quickly if you don't put anything on them to 'protect' them. Still a nice color, just be aware that it won't be dark green forever.
    -If you wear this constantly and it gets sweaty and funky, you can gently wash it with some lukewarm water and woolite by hand, then hang it to dry.
    -It will stretch just a bit, so consider opting for the smaller size if your noggin is between sizes.

    For reference - I'm a 5' 1" female with very thick hair and the medium fits me wonderfully. My guy is 6'1" and the XL is the perfect brain bucket for him.

    Great gift

    Bought this hat as a gift for my husband who had been looking for something to wear kayaking. Fit perfectly based on size chart. Great quality piece. Now I'm considering ordering one for myself!

    I bought this hat for my husband as he has had his eye on it for a little while now. It's everything he'd hoped it'd be. It looks very nice. Great quality. Could probably last a lifetime.

    My great aunt and uncle ran gas station and plumbing service in a small town in eastern Nebraska from 1946 till they both retired in 1981. Every year they entrusted the shop to a family friend and headed to Wyoming for two weeks of fly fishing on the Big Horn River. The black and white photographs of them loading up 1946 Ford Super De Luxe convertible fly rods sticking out of the back seat. My great uncle had a Filson crusher.. the ancestor of this timeless outdoorsman's fashion statement. The fit and feel is wonderful, and this is an excellent hat for the price. Why I focus more on nostalgia than the article itself is because it speaks for itself. Filson has been making high quality clothing items since 1897, that is why you buy this hat vs some wool blend indiana jones knockoff from Amazon.

    Unanswered Question

    Does this hat have a brown band or black? I've seen both. Thanks!
