Limited Edition DryHandle Dock Cap

$48.00

In a pinch, these hats could bail water.

More or less worked for Richard Diamond, fly fisherman, conservationist and former Regional President of the Federation of Fly Fishers. Had his dog upon a trail one fur piece from anywhere. The dog got thirsty. Richard had water but nothing to pour it into. Don't you know he flipped that DryHandle cap right over and filled her up… both man and dog survived. Richard's our hero.

Details: 

  • 1995 vintage Dry Handle, 100% cotton weatherproof fabric

  • Dark Olive color
  • Limited Edition of 50, each cap numbered in sequence of order

  • Adjustable leather strap

  • One size fits most

Story

Batten down the galley boys, the ship’s about to roll!

We were on the hunt for an American manufacturer, by that we mean a “genuine manufacturer” one that owns the process, from clay to the galley...not an “importer and marketer of goods” from far away places. We found what we were after in W. Virginia. The Homer Laughlin Company, a family-run, multi-generational family employer that’s been at their craft since 1871 and is today, the last standing American pottery. Our man at the helm was Bill Pickin, himself a 30 yr. veteran at HLC. With Bill's guidance, we built from scratch a darn nice replica of the authentic US Navy coffee cup, which the Navy commissioned in the 1940’s to withstand a ship’s roll in the open oceans. Thus the thick-walled body and girthy profile.

The process starts with what Bill calls “the batter” a concoction of clay, fleldspar, alpha alumina and a few secret ingredients. Each piece is jiggered. The handles are cast and attached by hand, our inscriptions are hand placed in the assigned location, and into the fire they go. After a 12 hour cycle in the kiln, they are ready for inspection...one that rivals that of the US NAvy Sailor’s Uniform Inspection. Mission readiness?...yup, we’re sure of it.

The Perfect Cover for the Cranially Enhance!

I wanted a rainproof hat to go along with my ARC Outlaw Gunner Jacket. I initially ordered a M/L Short-Bill Dock Hat. But alas, my head was too big! A quick conference with Engle pointed me to this longer-billed, adjustable cousin to the Short-Bill Dock Hat. Problem solved! The material and construction are second to none. While I do love the design of the Short-Bill Dock Hat, this more traditional design fits great and works! It is now my daily, go-to head cover.

My New Favorite Shirt

I recently purchased the Bimini short sleeve shirt in olive plaid. I could not be more happy with the quality, fit, and look of this product. It has quickly become my new favorite shirt. I also just got the Limited Edition Dry Handle Dock Cap. Excellent look and quality as well. I’ll definitely be bringing this with me to Montana next month.

Great hat!

I’m a huge fan of baseball hats, and have bought them all my life. When I saw this one I had to have it. So glad I got it. This hat is very comfortable, excellent quality, looks great, and man does water bead up on it! The material is very light, and remains cool on hot days. I was saving it for rainy days. Nah. It’s an everyday hat. Love the color, leather strap, and logo too. And Engle is one heck of a nice guy. I love supporting small US businesses. I’ve book marked their website. I’ll be back for more.

So glad to know we've met your expectations, Tom! We appreciate your support!

One thing I hate are raindrops that keep falling on my head.

This hat is so well designed, I can't wait to try it out in a Northeaster! Rarely have I seen a ballcap that's as waterproof and as well made as this.

A hat where form meets function

I've had this hat for 5 months now and it is my go to whenever I am working outdoors or just enjoying nature. The materials are super durable and the design is classic. It will never go out of style , which is great because I'll be using it for years to come. So if you are looking for a lightweight but reliable cap for any physical activity or just want to upgrade your headwear, this hat has you literally covered!

Wow Ben...thanks for taking time to tell others about your experience! I appreciate that and I am sure other will as well.
