Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Good looking cap that runs quite small in terms of sizing. I own both the SM/MD, as well as the MD/LG, and while the circumference of the caps is fine (especially thanks to the FlexFit technology, which is AWESOME), the depth of the cap is quite shallow. This is exacerbated by the fact that the front half of the hat is stiff and reinforced, thus not having much flex. While I really like the aesthetics of this hat (black logo on black hat looks awesome), as well as the general materials and construction (quite thick material, good stitching, etc.), I've got a few other problems with the build. For one, my SM/MD copy of this hat has an off centered bill vs body of the cap. The bill sits crooked and slightly tilted to the rest of the hat, which is ultra awkward. It's obviously a factory blemish, as my MD/LG is centered properly. Additionally, the materials used for this hat get sweat stained really easily, and if you aren't careful, you will find all sorts of white and gray...
This is the second hat like this I have purchased. I was disappointed with the first one because at the first signs of sun and sweat it began immediately fading to brown I have worn black hats for decades and have never seen one fade as quickly as the first one did. Given that this was an Arcteryx (AKA extremely high quality and stellar reputation) product I was willing to chalk that hat up as an anomaly due to a bad batch of dye or something. Unfortunately the first time my second hat got the slightest bit of sweat on the material is began to fade just like the first one did. Sad to see. By no means am I abandoning Arcteryx products...just their black hats.
Why the hell is ArcTeryx and Oakley obsessed with freakin SMALL DAMN HEADS! I normally take a medium large to large but thos hat would have needed to be an XXL size to fit me. My hat size is a 7 1/4 if that helps... if you are a small dude then damn you're in luck...
