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.
My South African safari hat from 1997 finally died and I wanted to replace it with another waterproof, cotton safari hat for about 3 years. The company went out of business and I wasn't planning a trip back to South Africa anytime in the near future. Conner He acts popped up on my occasional search and had not one, but many to choose from. The style, color and fitting guide got me what I wanted first try. I was on the cusp of sizes, went a little big and was happy to find the inserts to install. One more from a quick customer service response gave me a perfect fit. Could not be happier.

Thank you!Conner Hats,Well got to enjoy my Hats. Pierre
I had been looking for something like this for a while. It feels like a trusted old go-to right out of the box, and the more I wear it, the better it gets! Thank you!
I love everything about this hat. It is attractive, comfortable, packs well and is water resistant to boot! I got a medium as per sizing on the website and it fits perfectly. I would highly recommend this hat.
The hat looks good, we’ll made but feels a little tight. I followed the size instructions online. I guess I just need to wear it more often.
