          Comments about Duluth Trading USAAF Mechanic's Cap:

          Really nice brim, now considered "oversized" in light of recent fashion trends. But it's much more effective at keeping bright sunlight out of your eyes than newer styles, so at the end of the day, you need to ask yourself what's more important, looking "cool" or not going blind from sun glare? If you look at pictures of aircraft mechanics from the 1930's and '40's, they're wearing this cap's older brother.

              Comments about Duluth Trading USAAF Mechanic's Cap:

              Retired I wear it a lot and enjoy the larger bill in the summer sun. It's well made like old Army issue used to be and will out-last me. I like the USAAF style of it and it is authentically made compared to another brand that costs several times more and is no better made.
              The bill is a challenge; you have to "train" the bill to your liking. I washed it hot and dried it hot with a rolled up hand towel rubber banded around the bill to help shape it. It might need some starch before I'm done to hold the bill's shape.
              I'll be buying another one, it's that good!

                  This hat would look great on Julia Roberts by accenting her platypus lips.
                  (Line from "Runaway Bride", google it : )

                  At first look I wanted to return both of them, I bought two.
                  It fit too loose & the bill was flat & goofy looking.

                  Then I realized the bill was malleable. Start curling it from the outside to center.
                  Also since it is 100% cotton will likely shrink just the right amount.
                  I got XLG as my head is 7 5/8. So am keeping the hats.
                  I'm sure I'll enjoy them. Aloha!

                  Nice fit and comfortable, not too tight, but might blow off in the wind. Would be fixed with an adjustment, I know most people leave them, but I do use them. I like the long bill, keeps the sun off better than a normal ball cap.

                  This is a great hat, I have several now for every day use guiding in the greater Yellowstone region. Nice long brim and great fit with really large sizes available. I haven't seen a downside to this hat yet, and am hoping it'll stand up to regular washings. I've run one through the washing machine 8 times and it's still in great, like new shape! The design is unusual with a great long brim and the elastic in front, it's got a deep fit.... Great Hat!

                          Not a slave to fashion I wear what works for me. Having to dodge the skin cancer bullet this hat is great protection. The large bill keeps the sun out of my face working or driving my 79 MGB.

                              I'll be honest I'm giving this hat a 4 stars because with the extra wide brim you'll find it hard to avoid the sandlot references, in other words it looks goofy.

                              But I'm a roofer and need some extra coverage, I hate full brim hats so this gives me extra protection from the sun with the familiar feel of nice baseball hat, and it does a good job blocking out the sun, I've noticed its great for driving too and keeping the sun out of your eyes when the visors just dont quite block the sun. Yes I still think it looks a little goofy, but who cares if its helping make your job a little easier.
