Quality has declined

This was to replace the same model hat that was too small that I purchased a few years ago. There was a noticeable difference and not in a good way. Don't know if it's solely because of the change from "Genuine Steer Hide" to "Genuine Leather", but the newer version has a much less lustrous finish and just feels cheap. Returned it and the search for quality continues. Why do companies chose to make products worse instead of better?

Hat for Life

I purchased my first BC hat at a small western store. I loved the hat from the beginning because of its durability to be crushed and retain its shape. On one occasion while crossing a busy highway my hat flew off my head and was hit by a semi and it’s trailer. I recovered the hat and other than some minor damage around the brim. I was able to wear the hat for another two years before it was stolen. When I found the BC website, I was very excited to know that I could have another one of these amazingly durable hats. I know I will have this hat for my lifetime and more.

Great Company

I was at the Festival Flea Market in South Florida, and they had a few Connor Hats, but the salesperson didn’t know anything about the company. I was interested in the Sun Shield but had no idea about its quality. I looked up the company when I got home and saw the various hats that Connor Hats made.

I bought 3 Hats over the Labor Day weekend. It’s hard to know what you are getting via the internet, but I emailed with customer service multiple times. One of the people who explained the company was Will, the president of the company. That made me feel very comfortable.

The BC Hats Bac Pac Traveller Oily Australian Leather Hat was hand made in Australia by Will’s father, Bill. Bill is retired now, but they still have some of his creations. When they are gone, they are gone. This hat is very well made with a firm brim that holds up to the wind. Unfortunately, I have only worn this beautiful hat once because it’s so hot down here. I wish I would have found this hat when I lived up north, but I will wear this hat a lot if it ever cools down a little. The BC brand are the hats made by Bill Conner.

The customer service has been great. I had to return one of the hats because the crown height was too low and the leather was touching my head. Will said some people are ok with it but if I felt uncomfortable, I could just return it. I exchanged it for a BC Cool as a Breeze Leather hat with mesh. The mesh allows air to get through so it is cooler than the other hat and I am wearing it now as I type.

disappointed

I'be been looking for a new BC Hat in replacement of my 15 year old companion (leather on the front was so cooked by sweat that it finaly disjointed). I bought 4 others "BC HAT BAC PACK traveller" across europe with the same default: the leather is really thin, so the hat is shapeless and too soft... Even in hat shops in town! Such an obstination because this Hat is part of my identity now, I love it! And I wear it every day in every situation. So I decided to order in the US, ready to pay 270$ instead of 110€ in the local shop (185$ for the hat, 60$ for shipment, and 25€ of custom duty ) to get my dreamed hat.
The leather of the top of the hat is strong and perfect. But the leather of he edges is too thin, an with clumsy sewing/assembling there is some waves/bumps on it, it can't keep an appropriate sharp. It looks as if someone bought the rights foc BC hats and tryed to do the Job like the Old Man (Thank you Mister Conner for all these years, I've been proud to wear our hat! I'm a Fan!).
So I'm desperate now because I don't know if I'll find my BC again.
The packaging was perfect, some little scratches on the hat (but I didn't care beause if It had been the good hat, he would have seen others in the forest!).
The size was perfect too.
I'm interested in an exchange If I can get an "old school one", but if your shop can't provide me a better hat for the 15 next years I'll politely ask a refund.

Hi Joseph, leather being a natural material changes with each order and can’t be compared with hats we made decades ago… the waves in the leather will change with time and can be smoothed if you apply pressure on both sides of them … BC has retired and won’t be making any more hats so what you have is a collectors item, more importantly if you or any other customer does not like the hat they received, you can return it for a full refund. You can go to the returns link found at the bottom/footer of our website.

Been through it all

This is the best hat I've ever owned. It's been rained on, uv'ed on by the sun, hung in a closet and forgotten for an extended period of time, and still looks damn good.
