    COMMENTS:

    I have purchased three of these. They hold up well and are very helpful in the rain. (Best to spray a little scotch guard). I keep one on the boat for going ashore. I keep one in the house for the casual grab a hat to keep sun/rain off. Great for grabbing to walk the dog or go into the city. Very crushable and reshapeable. Although its probably my lowest cost hat its the hat that has gotten more complements and where did you get that questions from strangers. As it gets older it develops "character".

    Narrow brim, loses shape quickly

      COMMENTS:

      Looks pretty good at first, but I've worn it only half a dozen times and it's losing its shape-- the brim is wrinkled and the crown sags. The brim is also narrower than I prefer for sun protection here in the desert. Not necessarily a bad hat, but a bad choice for me. I'd recommend it, but with reservations.

      COMMENTS:

      This is my third FDR summer hat. Although I ordered the same size each time (s/m), each fit differently. The first one became sweat stained and I thought I would hand wash it to improve the appearance. The hat shrunk considerably, and although I managed to stretch the hat, the brim and crown lost their shape entirely.
      I did not wash the other two.
      The hat is comfortable and lasts several years and at it's relatively inexpensive price, I can replace it.

        COMMENTS:

        This is probably the hat I wear the least of any hat I own. It feels like it has a heating coil wrapped around my head. I prefer a leather fitted sweat band, but cotton canvas works good and I can even tolerate canvas with about 3% spandex. This stretchy nylon stuff in this hat is hot hot hot. I keep trying it in different circumstances and am hoping for a time when it is comfortable but I am about to give up and donate it. Even indoors with AC it is way too hot. Maybe it may work in the winter but I have a bunch of wool and insulated hats that do just fine for that and this is called a SUMMER hat for hot weather and that is what I was hoping for. It would be fine if it had a true fitted sweat band made of a true sweat wicking material. My head feels like I have a heating pad wrapped around it with this hat after about 3 minutes of wearing. I have another so called 'fitted' cap from Duluth that has this same stretchy material just in the front crown area and I also have been fighting to wear that. With it, my forehead just heats up and sweats like crazy. I noticed that Duluth doesn't even carry that cap anymore. My bottom line is I will not be purchasing any more hats from Duluth as I can't trust them anymore. I need a true fitted hat and not one that is designed to be a "one or two sizes will fit most". The elastic involved just doesn't cut it for me. This NOT a true fitted hat and certainly isn't sweat wicking as described. FDR would be ashamed you put his name on this. I would bet his hat was designed somewhat different. I bought into the illusion that this hat was just a modern machine made version of his exact hat. It is absolutely NOT. Rather it is a one size fits most, cheap foreign made imitation of a good hat. Even at this price, it isn't worth it if I can't comfortably wear it. I would rather pay twice the price and actually get a good hat I enjoy wearing. This purchase was definitely a mistake. I kept wanting to like it but I just cannot.
