Purchased this for backpacking/hiking. Nothing fancy here- just a good casual hat. If the leather is on the stiff side, the application of a little oil will restore suppleness and give the hat a nice, lived-in look, lest you be taken for a greenhorn. Wire in the brim allows it to be shaped; a good feature, but be careful as it will kink readily. Like a previous reviewer, I initially ordered a size XL and it was too small to fit, exchanged it for a XXL and found it almost too large, so sizing appears to be something of an issue in this range.
