Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Usually I will only review items I bought on Amazon. This hat I bought five years ago before Amazon carried the product line. I have a couple of reasons for introducing this now.
But first, women love this hat! Forget about what I might think personally. Women come up to me in places like supermarkets and compliment the hat, just out of the blue. No one ever compliments my other hats like this, not even my much more expensive Indiana Jones hat. But they love his hat. Unfortunately, the interest seems to stop there, and they don't ask me out.
The hat itself has stood up pretty well to five years of use, so for the price it's a good deal. It's not a highly finished hat and doesn't have either a liner or chinstrap, but both would be obtrusive.
My first specific reason for writing has to do with deals. A well-known company whose name rhymes with bats in the belfry is putting these hats on clearance at half what you might see on Amazon. Check these things...
I have had this hat for 2 years now and it has held up remarkably well (it's been all over the world) and still retains it's shape even after rolled up in baggage. The only problem I have with it is the leather braiding; it has come loose from the hat and no amount of glue will hold it in place. Eventually it is going to peel right off and I don't think the hat will look as good then; I did spring for the kangaroo version but as a previous reviewer said the regular leather is probably just as good. I would buy another one (a size smaller this time) but I also hope they find a way to secure the braiding more permanently to the hat!!
This hat rocks! I was heitant to buy a hat "sight unseen" but it had many good reviews, so I took a chance. I'm so glad I did. I love it, I got compliuments, quite literally, from day one. Someone reviewed that the sizing is a little snug, and that is true. If you are on the cusp, opt for the next size. I have a freakishly small head, and their version of small was actually snug on me.
