The Mountain packer hat will repel rain and roll up for travel. It features snaps on the side to keep the brim up if you choose and a secure chin cord for windy days. Also has 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.
Light weight, soft and comfortable, but the brim snaps can't be used. Their positioning pull the top up the hat down making it too tight and unwearable. Also, the black and white chin cord doesn't blend well with the hat...looks cheap. I still like the hat, so I'll make do without the snaps and cord.
