    COMMENTS:

    Hat is great the pencil holder is cool what a great idea. If your smart enough to wear saftey glasses you know its hard to hold a pencil behind your ear mine always fell to the ground. People have posted a carpenter pencil was to big not true in my opinion. Get this hat you will be glad you did.

    Great idea! Not actually very useful as implemented

    By Jon

    COMMENTS:

    I like this hat. It fits well, it hasn't bled and discolored with sweat like two previous hats (purchased elsewhere) have, and after half a dozen washings so far it is still a deep black. I like the understated logo.

    I bought it specifically because I like the pencil idea. I usually keep a carpenter's pencil on my ear when I'm working, but if I'm wearing safety glasses and a hat then it gets complicated. Removing the glasses tends to knock the pencil out. (Even worse if I'm also wearing a particle respirator.) So this seemed like a great idea!

    But it seems to be sized for a regular writing pencil (not practical in most field work as it needs to be sharpened far too often), and even when I've tried using a regular pencil when I'm working in the shop it is hard to find the opening to insert it. Trying to use the pencil slot slows me down, when precisely the opposite was the goal. A carpenter's pencil can be pushed in, so it does technically fit, but it's a very tight fit and it only complicates the slow problem.

    Also the pencil makes that part of the hat very stiff, and I feel a lot of pressure on my temple. That's not fun.

    But it is a very good hat. I would give the hat itself 5 stars, and the pencil function 1 star. But its main function is as a hat, not a pencil holder, so 4 stars overall.

      I'm a carpenter and always misplacing my pencil. The pencil sleeve on the cap is a great idea.
