Tin Packer Hat

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Great hat that lasts a lifetime (lifetime meaning until material fails). I have had my hat for about a decade and I have loved it. That is a long time but I have only used it for about ten days every year for my annual fishing trip. I would say that I have used it for about a hundred days in total. The sweatband failed many years ago and the leather trim band was loose after the first week I had it. But who needs sweat and trim bands? I need something that keeps both the sun and rain out of my eyes… Full review

Uplander Boots

rated 5 of 5 stars Nice high top boots. I got these used on e-bay, so paid about half price for a lightly worn pair. Fit is great, lacing works well, and I think they will be good with both light and medium socks. They don't have great arch support, but are still comfortable. I would not use these for any serious hiking as I prefer a European hiking/mountaineering boot for that.   However, knocking around in the summer and fall these keep the cheat grass out of my socks, will last for years. They are also pretty… Full review

Tin Cloth Bush Hat

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an ideal solution for protection from the wind, rain, snow and sun in cold weather. The hat includes a wool flip down that covers the back of your head and your ears. It has kept me warm in temperatures down to 15°F. Here's a pic of my old Packer Hat (L) and the Filson Tin Cloth Bush Hat (R).

Tin Packer Hat

rated 3 of 5 stars A trusty friend that I have put out to pasture. Filson's Tin Cloth Packer Hat is an unusual product in that it has the exceptional construction and quality that Filson is so well known for; yet the materials that give it such a great quality is also what ultimately fails. This is a difficult review to write. I love Filson products, and I do love this hat. However, I won't buy the Tin Cloth Packer hat anymore as I think there are better solutions. If you want something that's for cold weather, waterproof,… Full review

Cover Cloth Crushable Packer Hat

rated 5 of 5 stars I read a review on this site on the Filson Tin Cloth Packer hat and stumbled across the Filson store whilst visiting Portland, Oregon. I tried on the Tin Cloth Packer hat and it didn't appeal to me but then I found this hat and just had to have it! It's comfortable, keeps my head dry in the rain, it rolls up in my pack or suitcase (can be crushed if need be) and keeps my head warm in the cooler weather. It's probably not best used for a summer hat as the rim isn't too big to act as a sunshade and… Full review
