I bought this hat as I am an Scout leader in the UK, meaning I’m out in the rain a lot! A leather hat I used previously was too warm for the summer months and had no real shape. I’ve always been a fan of the cowboy style hat and needed something waterproof so I bought this one. It’s put up with some harsh, wet treatment already and has come out very well. It’s a unique product in terms of style and usage, capturing the American cowboy hat look but without the compromises of using a felt hat in the rain. The chin strap can be tucked inside the hat when it isn’t needed, and the waterproofing is perfect even in long storms. I would definitely recommend!
