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.
Unique strap system. Packs down easily. Made with sturdy material. Took it out on a hike and it performed well. Liked the hat well enough bought two more models from Conner hats.
Great hats, used both while on vacation in the Bahamas and Oracoke Island, NC - kept the sun off my head, well made and did very well in the washing machine - highly recommended, I've order from these folks in the past and their hats really do stand up to heavy use, the order was delivered promptly and just like advertised.I'll be ordering from this company, in the future, when needed.
I purchased this hat for an upcoming trip to -- you guessed it, Yellowstone and Jackson Hole, WY. This baby is packable / crushable! It's very well made. Love the interior storage pocket. It's lightweight, too. Shipping is super fast and it was well packaged (nicely supported in a box). Measured as Conner Hats instructed and the fit was perfect.
I've been looking a long time for a ventilated cotton hat, with a brim that provides coverage without bumping my camera when taking photos. Most "ballcaps" are made of synthetic material that induces sweating, and don't cover the neck and ears. I've resorted to tying on a "do-rag" but was still looking for a nice hat for hiking and backpacking. My first real test of the hat will be during a 5-day backpacking trip in July, but I'm anticipating good results.
Got this hat for dragonfly surveying. Have a hx of skin cancer so wanted more coverage than a baseball hat provides.
