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 wear this hat daily to play golf in Florida. The hat is light weight, comfortable and provides excellent protection from the sun. However, the feature I like most is that the wide brim is stiff enough to allow me to put my golf ball marker and magnet holder on the side of the brim without weighing it down and causing it to droop.
Best part is its washable and keeps its shape. Just bought my second one of the same type, just a different size. Just took it to a Water Park and I had people compliment and ask where I got it from. I wear it Ron "Pigpen" McKernan style by tightening the strap on the back to push up the sides. If there is any other way to wear this cool hat, I don't know of it!!!
We moved from Australia to live in France 7 years ago. My sons, husband and I learnt the importance of sun protection in our years in Australia. (As Brits it wasnt something we'd previously had to worry about!). Now we all love wearing hats, all purchased from your store. I have 3, my family each have 2, the first bought last year (the Aussie Golf Soakable Mesh hats, very much alike in style to these hats).
These hats are lightweight and cool to wear, very well made and beautiful to look at. A very good price too. My adult sons love their latest hats, and look great in them, so much smarter, and more protective in the sun, than the cheap caps we see around. We will continue to purchase 1 each every year. The fact you plant 12 trees per every hat sold is also wonderful, and will ensure I remain a yearly , loyal customer of Connahs Hats.
Delivery to France was also seamless and efficient!
Thank you for your great service
I bought my 1st hat in 1998 in Karratha,WA. I wore it in the sun for almost 30 years, when it got chewed up in my mower. This new one is somewhat sturdier so I am hoping for many more years of wear.
Thanks for your kind review and here's to many more years! Enjoy and stay sun safe!
