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 just purchased 10 hats from you and the thinner brim thickness is a problem because it is not the same hat. It does not hold the shape and becomes a hat that will not be used. There is a company that made this change several years ago and their business suffered greatly. I truly hope you do not make this same poor decision. You could double the price on the original white (y-1001-3) and it still would be worth the price. When you have a great product, please do not change it. I am now looking for a place to purchase the original (y-1001-3)
First hat that I bought without trying it out beforehand.... It's a great hat and fits like it should... much better than I thought it would be...well made and a pleasure to wear. I rate it, at minimum, a five star buy!!!!
This has been my power boating and kayaking hat since the '80s. Bought it back then from the Nature Store in Austin. The snap-up aussie-style brim helps keep the hat planted for riding in a power boat, and of course you need a chin strap. Shame you can't post photos on this review, because all my great fishing karma was wearing this old hat. Just last month, the stitching between the brim and crown finally gave up - not a hit against a 35-y-o hard-used hat. Was delighted to find the new like replacement hat available, and will be taking it to the Texas tropics this fall to work up some new fishing karma.
So hard to find a cotton hat that has a higher crown and is well made, I found it here, this hat is well constructed, heavy duty, once I get it treated with Sno-Seal it will last 30 years! Only wish you made this exact hat in different colors.
Very nice hat. Better than I thought.
