Been looking for something like this for years
September 3, 2016
I've had felt and leather hats, which have their purposes, and a rugged cotton fedora that I had to shoot and bury years ago. (I just couldn't bear to see the kids use it for a Halloween costume any longer.)

In preparation to go riding in Colorado, I shopped for a hat. What I found were country hats that look silly to me - more like costumes for stage performers. (Full disclosure: I have performed Western songs on stage, but do not wish to look like a singing cowboy.) I found Stetsons that were pretty good, but overpriced and not my cup of coffee. There were off-brand wanna-bes that had designs that were too busy or very bad fits. Then there were *cough* baseball caps.

Along with some of the others, I tried on the Trapper, and liked it immediately. At first I thought it was leather, which can get too hot. The eyelets go a long way, but the material of this hat was also much cooler that leather. This hat was great for riding, and I used it elsewhere to shade from the Sun. The strap came in handy, as I often doff the hat to shoot photographs (the brim interferes with the camera, except when I need it to shade the viewscreen!)

I wanted a weather-resistant hat. My leather hat shrinks and hardens after rain, and I don't want my felt to get wet. So here I am.

Great hat.

My only gripe is the "security pocket". Since it is clearly marked, how is it secure? And it is so tight, I can't imagine what might be forced into it. A key or a very crisp bill, I guess.
