Was disappointed in the hat when it arrived. The cap part was crushed and wrinkled. Spent over 30 minutes with a steamer trying to reshape it. Then I applied fabric starch and stuffed the cap with tissue paper. Also did some work on the brim's shaping to make it appear more of a classic style. After the starch dried, the cap looks better and the hat looks more stylish. Plan to apply a camou orange band where the cap meets the brim. I am not sure how the cap will hold up on a humid day of hunting in SC. It may wilt and look crushed again. I also have a small head and purchased the smallest size. It is a little too snug.

I like that you are supposed to be able to dunk the hat in water for coolness (haven't tried that out yet). Seems like bad engineering to have the chin cord run around the inside of the crown where you can feel it against your head. Fabric seems durable. It's OK, but I didn't love it.
