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 color to the hat. This can soak up an oil mark. Afterwards, rub the chalk off the hat.
My fiance loves this hat so much, his is wore out but says his size is out of stock..when will it be back in stock???
We're sorry the hat is out of stock. In fact this is the last of BC hats stock for the Bushwalker. Bill Conner (BC) closed down his factory after 50 years of making handmade leather hats. He is now enjoying his retirement trying to catch that perfect wave.
I liked my other (3) BC Hats so much that I bought this one. I wanted a different color (brown), or leather (suede), but they are sold out. OK, I'll take it. It's too outdoorsey for me to wear in town for running errands. But for walks, hikes, camping, out in the sun, it's awesome.
The Bush Walker is my go to hiking and camping hat out in the desert. The fit is amazing and the brim keeps the sun off my face and neck during the day. It keeps the head warm at night. The customer service at Connerhats and BC is amazing. You have a lifetime customer.
Glad you're liking the hat. Be sure to look at our hat care page for maintenance tips. https://connerhats.com/pages/hat-care
Also, you now are the owner of the last of its kind. Bill Conner (BC) closed his factory down last year after 50 years of making handmade leather hats.
Best Hat, Best Customer Service and Best shipping time! Will be ordering another soon!
Glad you like the hat! And we're glad it got to you in time despite USPS putting a shipping alert on their website!
I have many high quality hats from both Tilley and Filson. I just received the BC Bushwalker as a Christmas gift. I have to say, the quality is just as good if not better than the other two brands mentioned. Leather and stitching are both first rate. I will further review after some wear time. I am now interested in getting a BC waxed cotton hat to try as well.
We look forward to your review!
