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.
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!
You have to see it, feel it, and study the fine craftsmanship of this hat. I own leather hats but this is my first Connor and it is far superior to the others I own. I highly recommend this hat for all. The sizing on my hat ran a tad on the generous side, however, this pleased me as well. Bonus: it’s a fine looking lid; the online picture does not do it justice.
We appreciate your kind words. You have a one of a kind hat there good sir. FYI, Bill Conner of BC Hats, whom the hat is branded after, closed his factory near the end of 2020. After making hats since the late 60's he decided he liked retirement. May you have a happy and safe 2021
Great hat I love it I've been looking for a hat like this for a long time very well-made worth the money
