I have to admit that the moment after I ordered this hat, I was a bit worried. And a bit skeptical. I remained skeptical from the time I ordered it until the day it arrived. Then I opened the package, read the nice thank you note inside and had a look at the hat. Well, from the moment I saw it, felt it, and tried it on, I immediately knew this would be my favorite hat for years to come.
It is pretty tough for a hat to impress me, but this one absolutely does. The DryHandle fabric is substantial and tough, and the five-panel construction allows the hat to form to your head. It is hard to put into words how nifty this particular hat truly is. All I can recommend is that you pull the trigger on one.
There are 'caps' and there are 'hats.' I have a lot of ball caps, and this is no ball cap. It feels like it will prove to be essential gear on countless fishing trips. I'll be swinging for steelhead in WA's Olympic Peninsula next month and my Camper Hat is definitely coming with me. Just for the heck of it, I placed my hat in the kitchen sink and poured water over it. It was a thing of beauty - the water beaded up and ran off that sucker faster than Usain Bolt. Spending two weeks next month fishing in the middle of a rainforest, I have zero doubt it will rain. Probably a lot. I have little doubt this hat will do its job for me.
Oh, and as an added bonus? It is about the coolest-looking hat you can imagine. Photos don’t do it justice. And I can't guarantee you'll look as cool as I do wearing yours. LOL!
I strongly suggest you stop reading this drivel and buy one!
