This hat is made from weathered cotton that repels the rain and features an inside pocket. Can be packed flat for travel and it floats! Features wide metal mesh screen eyelets for extra ventilation.
What is weathered cotton? It's a mixture of cotton and polyester that gives the hat a leather-like look and feel, as well as water resistant capabilities.
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.
Well-made, plenty of sun protection, and looks a bit Indiana Jones while staying practical for kayaking and hiking and farm projects. Only a few weeks in but I can tell I'll be wearing this hat for a long time to come.
Glad the hat is getting in some adventure time with you. If you want to maintain the waterproofing on the hat, look up on our website the NikWax waterproofing spray. Enjoy and stay sun safe this summer!
I spend a lot of time kayak fishing on both lakes and rivers and it can get windy. This hat is well designed to comfortably remain in place but if a tree limb removes it for you, it floats. This is the custom made hat for me no doubt with unmatched quality. I had to return the first one as it was too small....... my new replacement hat arrived four days later! Also, I recently found out from my eye Dr. that most of the world's cataracts are caused by UV exposure. He strongly recommended this type of hat always be worn while outside. Conner Hats, good for your eyes too, who knew?
Glad that the eye doctor even gave his approval for it. Be sure to look up our hat care page to maintain the longevity of the hat. Enjoy!
Always wanted something like this. A buddy bought something similar from Connorhats and he was happy with his, so I tried it. Mine fits great and I’m happy I found it. Quality hat and was delivered just a few days after I ordered. Thank you!
Glad we could get you a hat that ticked those boxes for you. Be sure to look at some of our hat care tips to maintain it's longevity: https://connerhats.com/pages/hat-care
I'm a conservation scientist and i can't wait til I'm free to head out into the field again wearing this hat.....I just know its going to be fantastic. I ordered a small and its ever so slightly too tight....is there a way to loosen?
You can always try to stretch it. Place it on the bend of your knee, put your hands inside the crown and pull it up to you.
If this doesn't work, email firstname.lastname@example.org and the team should help you through the return process and explain how to get a new hat one size up.
I guess I need the small/large instead of the large/medium. Love the hat, but it doesn't fit my round cabeza. Please advise?
If your head circumference is between sizes, we suggest going with the size up. We provide free sizing strips so you can use these to then adjust the size of the hat till it fits.
