This is a nice hat. It does what is advertised. I have gotten several compliments on it. Plus, I tell people I won it arm wrestling a Navy SEAL. I don't think they believe me. The first time I wore it, I was sitting in a stadium watching my son's track meet. A seagull loosed a load that splattered right on the top. A direct hit. The hat washed up fine. If it can survive that, it can survive anything.
