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've been looking a long time for a ventilated cotton hat, with a brim that provides coverage without bumping my camera when taking photos. Most "ballcaps" are made of synthetic material that induces sweating, and don't cover the neck and ears. I've resorted to tying on a "do-rag" but was still looking for a nice hat for hiking and backpacking. My first real test of the hat will be during a 5-day backpacking trip in July, but I'm anticipating good results.
Got this hat for dragonfly surveying. Have a hx of skin cancer so wanted more coverage than a baseball hat provides.
I like the material, color, comfortable fit, and style of this hat. It's exactly what I was looking for. This hat will last a long time. I'll buy another one soon. Thanks.
Well made and very comfortable.
I highly recommend buying this hat.. it fits perfect and I can tell it will withstand many years of wear.. I'm looking to purchase another Conner hat very soon.
