The "Hat n the Pouch" folds up and fits in a bag or back pack. Try not to keep it folded for extended periods of time as the leather may become wrinkled. This is a great hat for travel and will protect you from the elements. Hand made in Byron Bay Australia at the BC hat factory.
If your hat is stained, a leather dressing can be applied to the outside of the hat. The leather dressing will darken the hat, mask the stain, and make the hat more waterproof. If you're just removing a small mark on the hat, sometimes rubbing the area firmly with your thumb can erase the mark. Also, you can try chalk that is a similar colour to the hat. This can soak up an oil mark. Afterwards, rub the chalk off the hat.
