It's best to spot clean all cloth hats with a damp cloth using cold water, or hand-wash in a sink if necessary. We recommend using plant-based soaps because regular detergents can be toxic for our waterways.
Always let your hat dry naturally. If your 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.
Another option to take out wrinkles on the brim is to place a clean rag or old T-shirt over the wrinkled area then iron the area.
I have purchased several safari type hats over the years and I believe that this Conner Hat is the best so far. I ordered a little big but the supplied spacer make it just about right. Thanks
This hat looks and fits great! At first I wore it without the size reducing strips and thought it fit good, then I put the strips in and it fit so much better. The hat is a little stuffing I'm sure it's going to soften up the more I wear and crush it.
I returned this hat for several reasons.
1. I didn't like the material. It was very stiff. I wanted something softer and more flexible.
2. I didn't like the color. I wanted a hat in a light color. I ordered the color loden because in the picture it looked tan. It turned out to be a very dark green, almost black.
3. It was too large. My hat size is 7 7/8. This works out to be 2X or 3X depending on who makes the hat. The last Conner hat I bought was 2X and it fit, but was a little too tight. This time I bought the 3X and it was huge. Even with the sizing strips installed it was too big. My guess is that it was actually a 8 1/4. Buying hats without being able to try them on is always a challenge, but I have no choice since no store stocks hats big enough to fit me. But luckily Conner has a free return policy, so I was able to purchase a different hat that fits right and which I like.
Bought this hat for those coming rainy days here in the Pacific Northwest. I also wanted a hat that could be packed in a suitcase, so it needed to be crushable, per this model info it can be crushed. I think this had looks ok and it recovers just ok after being crushed, thus only 4 stars
Bought the hat for a trip to Europe. Not only looks very handsome but also gives a lot of protection when raining. And also crushable: it goes back to its original shape after being abused inside my luggage.
Really happy with my Indy Jones water resistant hat!
