Should have listened to the reviews. Wasn't expecting too much at the closeout price, but the pix looked pretty good. Before I ordered it, I discovered thru close-op pix that what looked like a chain band was not real chain, but that could always be fixed, so I went ahead and ordered the hat as a gift. The leather in this hat is not only thin, it is extremely poor quality. The real "kicker" was the discovery that the vent holes looked as tho' they were just poked thru with an odd pair of scissors. Can't believe any company would want to put their name on such a product. Okay for a few dollars for a kids play hat or costume, but to actually wear? A disappointment & another Christmas return.

Ultralight leather is great for warmer days especially with the brim to block off any sun. Mine came in the wrong size (xxl instead of the xl I ordered), and the woven leather hat band on both of my Fitzroys is too large for the hat- giving a cheap look. From a distance the hat looks okay.

Pro - It's a light weight hat .
Cons - It's a light weight hat.
Great comfort, looks, shade. I really like the styling and crown depth. However, do need to hold on tight at slightest wind. Needs a draw cord and I attached one of my own. It's a little larger in sizing but not greatly. I'm not usually a hat kinda guy but I needed the sun protection this hat provides. I'd buy this hat again. Can't beat Sierra Traders price on this one.
