Using a lint brush or the adhesive side of tape will remove dust and dirt on wool hats. If your wool hat gets out of shape, you can use steam from a tea kettle to reshape it. Hold the hat in the steam and allow it to soften. You can then reshape your hat to its original shape and then let it cool down before wearing. Always place a hat upside down on its crown if you do not have a hat rack for storage.
Ordered the black version, color darker than pictured. Perfect! Fits great and looks better. Construction top notch. Very happy with purchase.
I'm so pleased with my hat. It fits perfectly and looks great. Will be buying more hard soon!
Fits perfect and very well made! Going to buy a black one also. Just a very sharp looking hat!
Great hat! Excellent quality and great customer service and warranty!
So I did a bunch of tests for hours in direct sun to see which was cooler, a wool hat or a straw hat (Montecristi-style Panama Hat) and I was surprised that the WOOL hat seemed to keep you cooler, especially if there is not much breeze. My guess is that the thickness of the wool acts as insulation and doesn't allow the heat of the sun to penetrate to your head, while the lighter hat had better ventilation but the heat goes right through to your brain. Wool is also known to keep you cool as the Bedouins and other desert dwellers have learned: In hot temperatures, wool absorbs moisture from skin and helps to dissipate heat more rapidly.
I bought the this hat along with a Bowler hat for my girlfriend. I got it to replace my trail hat that served well for many years. The hat fits perfectly it’s soft the shape is nice I was looking for subtle curves. I need it to keep the sun off my neck and face as we hike the lost coast It does that very well And when the time comes she’s the rain I’m very excited to see how it will preform in cool weather.
