Pretty cool and would buy one except I do not wear caps these days and prefer a full brim. Orvis Lite Felt is my current favorite but would consider a woven, cotton scrutchable.

I agree that hats are a personal preference. I've learned that I really like caps and some broad brimmed ones, as long as they are not too stiff.

Gary (and everyone else who won an award or honorable mention in the member photo contest this spring: DO NOT BUY A HAT, unless you want more than one. I'm sending one to each of you at the end of the month, after OR and vacation, as promised.

How do these do with large heads? I have a heck of a time getting adjustable hats to fit comfortably and properly? Have they been tried on someone with a size 7 7/8 or 8 noggin?

Wish I had a smaller head, I'd own a hundred hats...

I'm a hat guy - period! Wide brims? Oh yeah. My Tilly T3 light goes everywhere with me. I also LOVE my original trailspace.com hat. So much in fact, that it is becoming a bit worn. The new ones look lighter, and even more breathable than the first ones.

I have the opposite problem that cleric has though. I have small bean! I have to adjust my hat almost all the way down to keep it from falling off my head. There is a lot of adjustment strap, so I'm guessing it would fit larger sized heads too.

I personally love hats too, though I like some styles better than others.

Cleric, my head is on the larger size, at least for a woman — (7 3/8) — and the Trailspace hats work fit me well. I just tried mine on to compare for you, and there's still plenty of room to go bigger. The strap on the new hats is adjustable via a "hook-and-loop" (i.e. velcro) strap.

For the smaller heads out there, the picture in the blog is of my preschooler wearing the hat, tightened as much as possible. It's still a bit big for her, but it's definitely wearable even for her small noggin. So if your head is bigger than a 2-year-old's, you should be just fine.

Also, f_klock is right that the new hats are lighter and more breathable. I was very happy with my original hat (in my current avatar at left), but I think I'm going to like this one better.
