I have 2 other DPC hats, and they have held up well. (They are different styles than this one.) This hat is comfortable and reasonably well made for the price. Has a sweat band and a wire running through the brim for maintaining its shape. I would not call it packable/crushable. I have the size Large and I would say it is more like extra large. The hat would repel water in a light rain, but is not water proof.
