If your hat is stained, a leather dressing can be applied to the outside of the hat. The leather dressing will darken the hat, mask the stain, and make the hat more waterproof. If you're just removing a small mark on the hat, sometimes rubbing the area firmly with your thumb can erase the mark. Also, you can try chalk that is a similar color to the hat. This can soak up an oil mark. Afterwards, rub the chalk off the hat.
I love the look and durability of leather with the mesh. This is a great hat for outdoor activities in the summer.
I brought this had for doing Flyball (dog relay sport) where I am in the sun all day, as the straw hats I usually buy just don't last that long.
I found the fit is excellent, which I don't say very often because of of my big head and unlike my straw hats, my head, ears and neck didn't get burnt at the two day comp we competed in just after I received my hat.
I just need to come up with a good excuse to purchase another one.
I would highly recommend this hat and company if you are looking to purchase a hat.
I am very pleased with the hat over all fit is good, light weight cool JDS
G'day, I like the hat, but have concerns as to it being shipped from Australia, to America, and then back to Australia again, regards Mark.
