This is an excellent rough country hat. I use it considerably in the back country. It actually stays pretty warm even when I have gotten it soaked in mountain thunderstorms.

It is also very bomber. I generally wear almost anything out. I tend to go hard and long and wear clothes that I really like until they fall apart. This hat is stacking up and fighting this trend. It is good for dipnetting, brushhucking, and climbing. It is the ultimate hat and it is big enough to fit my 7 7/8th melon. I can't find many hats that can do that.
