Finally a hat that fits, love the wire in the rim, wash it all the time, handles it. Great hat. Nice touch, will not have to cut off the stupid string for holding it on. It has little loops you can remove it from.
This hat was my second Carhartt purchase for a trip to Glacier National Park in Montana. The first was a zippered vest which I wore almost every day and held my zoom lens on hikes. The hat was fantastic. It was very windy at times and I definitely used the strap to keep it on. It was cool and very lightweight and comfortable. In fact, I had purchased a "high end" hat which was three times the price a few weeks earlier and returned it right before our trip. I liked the fact it could be packed into my pack or suitcase but the brim could still be adjusted.
I purchased this hat for my husband and son for their fishing trip to Alaska. They reported that it was comfortable, lightweight, proved protection from the sun and dried quickly. It launders well and fits my husbands big head!
