Worth The Price

Good looking, nice quality hat that fits very well. Sounds like a description of everything that Patagonia makes! The hat is generously sized but then can be cinched tighter using the rear cord. My hat size is 7 5/8, but I still ended up tightening it slightly. The brim is firm not floppy, and the crown is soft, so it collapses perfectly flat for packing. However, you will need at least a 14” wide suitcase IF you want to keep it flat so as not to crease the brim, which means an overhead and not an under seat carry-on. Patagonia calls this hat ‘Quandary’ and not ‘Baggies’, because that was the name on the bag label, but I believe it is one and the same hat.
