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.
I got this hat for Christmas but have only been able to wear it over the last few weeks since it started warming up. The hat is nice and lightweight but it's also sturdy and retains its shape in stiff wind. A nice wide brim makes it perfect for keeping the sun off my face on hot days while fishing from my paddleboard. The only thing I don't like is the string. It's a really thick/stiff strip of leather so it doesn't hang naturally and is kind of abrasive. It can easily be replaced and is not a big issue so I still give the hat a five star rating.
Thanks for the kind review and that's certainly a good point about the leather that we'll keep in mind. We do have some synthetic rope chin cords so send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can mail you one for free.
I just received this hat so haven't much to go on, but I like it already. It has good sun protection and snapping the left side up lets me wear the hat when playing my pipes.
You have to tag us in when you play the pipes with your Conner Hat on. We would love to see it!
Just what I was looking for, all cotton stiff brim hat. If I had to change anything it would be to make the crown taller. I have a large head and the XL fits very nice.
Glad you like it. We'll try keep your advice in mind when we decide to bring out another style similar to it. Enjoy!
I got this hat for my husband who had a similar one that he wore out. This one is so much better quality and looks great on him! I originally got one that was too small but Conner Hats' customer service is outstanding. I returned the first one free of charge and ordered him the correct size. We are in Hawaii and he's wearing it right now ♡
Glad we could get him the correct sized hat for him!
It’s a very nice hat. Love it. Little big but one size down would be to tight. Had one I bought in Yellowstone park 30 years ago. Lasted forever. Similar to this hat.
