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.
LOVE this hat. I have had one for13 years. Use it on the boat all summer. Get it wet, no problem. Very light which I like. Very breathable. I do not wear a hat normally. Take it on vacation. Just put it on top of my clothes, smash it flat, looks fine when I pull it out. The only reason I am buying another one is this is starting to get discolored around the brim. I suppose because I leave it on the boat in the summer. Hope this one last another 13 years.
Appears as if it will do what I need (trip to the tropics in a couple of months). Very light. Can't comment yet on breathability. Only slight quibble is that the material is a bit crinkly.
Bought this hat right before a trip to Colorado. We were outside in the sun being very active. Went four wheeling and the draw sting kept it from blowing off. My wife loves the look of it also! This hat is great.
It breathes and protects. I am happy with it.
Like the style and great sun block. Only negative it is a little floppy , front blows up when windy. Otherwise happy with the hat.
They're mostly for a good breeze but I do appreciate the honest review.
Enjoy and stay sun safe!
