  • Almost my favorite hat

I really like this hat for a few-reasons. - The shorter brim, plaid scheme, and stitching are very modern. - The material that it's made out of is very breathable, and this is one of the few hats that doesn't collect sweat-stains if I work a bunch in it (gross, I know, but this is hard to find in a hat) - The blue that I got is very vibrant The only reason I don't like this hat is because of the material that they put in-place of where you'd find a size-adjustment on your typical hat, it throws off the look of the hat, especially when it's stretched-out around my big head. But as is typical in design criticism, I have no better solution of what they could put there while maintaining the 'one size fits all' aspect that this hat achieves.

  • Too Big!

I really liked the style of this hat. The material & design were what I expected. Unfortunately, it was way too big when I put it on my head (ordered online). I normally wear around a size 7 fitted hat, depending on the brand. If this was a cotton hat it would not be a big deal, a little sweat or plain water & it would shrink to fit. Unless you wear a larger sized hat, this will probably be too big.

Thanks for the review and comments on sizing. We are sorry this style didn't work out for you this time. We hope another hat like the Redwood or the Fletcher (which is cotton) will work for you!
