Extremely satisfied with durability and looks.
I drove for 2 hours to get to a western store that had my size (XL) in-stock, and it was well worth it. I've worn this hat almost every day for 8 months, through a 100°+ Summer and a -15° Winter, while frequently hiking and working outdoors. The canvas it's made from doesn't absorb sweat or weigh as much as bullhide, but looks and feels just as good. For the money, I've yet to see anything that compares. And if it matters to you, it's very popular with the ladies.
The canvas is 100% waterproof and weathers the elements like a champ, but it doesn't pack well and doesn't like being crushed. Any time I travel with it, it's on my head or secured where it won't be compacted. The sewn-in wire that secures the edge of the brim is somewhat flimsy, but makes it very easy to shape into the style of your choice, and hasn't developed any stress breaks like the brim wire in my bullhide Stetson.
I can't recommend this brand enough, and have got far more from this hat than I expected to.
