    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.

    Order the size Large and it was definately too small. Ordered the extra-large and it is still a little tight. My head is not that big so I would say they have a real sizing issue.

    My mother lost her hat on Saturday and needed a replacement hat with a chin strap. STC was the first place I thought of to look. She was very concerned that I find a hat in size S (one size fits all was out of the question) with a chin strap in a neutral color. This hat is a winner on all three criteria. Unfortunately, she wanted a hat with a somewhat wider brim, but she still likes this one and will use it.

    It's a great hat, although I should have sized my head. I got a size too small, and they didn't have one in the proper size.
