This hat was purchased to replace a Bailey Wind River Full Wool Crushable that took flight while fly fishing the Taylor in Colorado. That hat was well made, comfortable and very durable. The replacement journey was 4 years. Needless to say it took a good hat to meet my replacement criteria. This hat is my choice and I have no complaints to date.
The one single point causing a 4 star rating instead of a 5 star is a personal preference and nothing more. I would like the hat to hold more dip in the brim as well as a bit more side flare.
A true 4 star rating with a recommendation of you will not be disappointed should you choose to purchase one. Size is as described.
