Bootlegger Oilskin Hat

I recently got my Bootlegger Hat and pathfinder jacket and I love both these products! It’s treated me very well in the Kodiak terrain and climate. When I received my hat Outback even provided a foam strip that can be applied to the inside of the hat in case it’s to big. A small deal but shows the amount of deal and care they put in the product. Thanks Outback Trading Company.

Exactly what I wanted

Looks great, fits perfect. Follow the directions for measurements exactly. If you're in between or even close to the next size up, order the next size up. Find a good hat hanger for those few moments it's not on your head, the wire brim "remembers" that one time you set it on the table.

I've worn it in cool weather, rain and some high gust winds, still haven't needed that neck cord. Hat band strings were a bit too long for my liking, trimmed them down and added some .22 brass to the ends, fit perfectly.

Get compliments everywhere about it, and I can feel the quality of it. It's going to be my go-to hat for quite a few years.

Good company, very good product and fair price.

I ordered the Bootlegger hat with priority delivery. Outback sent confirmation and shipped item next day and I had the new hat in hand in three days. The fit is correct and the craftsmanship is very good. The hat is waterproof as advertised and comfortable, both are vital since I wear the hat every day while working.

If the hat fits

I bought this because I am a landscaper/gardener and between heat and rain, I really need a quality hat and that much better if it looks nice and is made well.

Pros:

I've been wearing the hat for a couple weeks and with the addition of the foam piece, it fits my head well. I'm grateful for the chin strap; it can get windy where I work (and kayak). Even without the chin strap, I'm surprised how well it stays on when the wind gusts.

It kept my head dry during some rain.

It's gotten some compliments also. :)

I like that I can easily form the brim's shape (the downside is that it gets misshapen just as easily).

Cons:

I wish it came in a brown that actually LOOKS brown instead of black. (Same with the oilskin jacket and pants I bought - they look black unless you're in full blazing daylight.) This is not only for aesthetics, but also to deflect some heat.

The oil is a dirt magnet - it wouldn't keep me from buying it again or recommending it, but it took about 3 minutes to look filthy and feel gritty, which I'm not crazy about.

The name tag thing on the inside is cute, but I'm not sure how anybody is writing on black fabric or on a one inch line.

The number one con is that I wish this wasn't made in China. I am willing to pay more for American materials and products and would have been much happier if this hadn't been made there.
