Using a lint brush or the adhesive side of tape will remove dust and dirt on wool hats. If your wool 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. Always place a hat upside down on its crown if you do not have a hat rack for storage.
I have the Norcal open road hat in both putty and black and wouldn't say no to the brown. It's just a really good hat, comfortable and attractive and functional. I've worn the putty through multiple fire seasons in Northern California, working hard on hot days to support evacuated horses, and it's kept its shape and attractiveness through a lot of abuse. The black is newer and my "looking good" hat, which is supported by multiple folks (including a stone cold hottie in a grocery store) complimenting me on it. I also have a Boulder Beach hiking hat, which I also love, so I'm developing some strong loyalty to Conner hats. I have a medium-to-large head and prefer looser hats, and have added a leather slide to the chin strap of my Norcal hats to keep them on in windy conditions.
I love my new hat I don’t usually look good in hats but it’s one I love taking it to Alaska with me

I own two Norcal Open Road hats and will buy more if/when additional colors are offered. They are beautifully made, comfortable, durable, and good looking. They are perfect for a hike and beautiful for the evening. The quality is just as good - if not better - than hats I have paid 4 times a much for. The brim in the perfect size for shielding the sun and rain without being obtrusive. Love them, thank you Conner Hats!!
The NorCal and the Bird and Feather are two of my favorite hats! Thank you for your kind review!
great hat. I wear while winter hiking -- much better than the synthetic Tilley that makes my head sweat. Perfect brim to mostly shade my face so I hardly have to wear sunglasses. love it. oh, and did I mention stylish? Also, I checked to be sure that Conner's "handmade in china" wool hats are not made by enslaved people, which is a concern about anything made in Asia, especially right now in China. Conner responded very positively to my query about this.
It's one of my favorite hats!
Enjoy and stay sun safe!
