Great Hat For Railroaders!
on March 23, 2011
(PICS, PICS, PICS: Please be sure to take a look at the two pics I've posted of my husband wearing the Carhartt Hat during a recent snow storm, Saturday, April 9-2011. The wind was blowin' pretty good that day).
My husband is a railroader... been ridin' those rails for 33-years now; and he says this is the BEST hat he's ever worn. So much so, that now he won't wear anything else.
He says it keeps his head WARM, as well as STAYING in place. He used to wear baseball caps, but they would fly off his head all the time in a strong gust. Not so with the Carhartt. As well, it's SOFT to the touch. He likes the 'feel' of the material because the knit is NOT SCRATCHY at all, (like some cheaper knits are).
He also likes that it has a VISOR. He says it makes him feel like he's actually wearing a hat for work, not a cap for skiing. Not only that, but he also says it SHIELDS his eyes from the sun, from glare, and from snow. And that's a good thing.
For me, it's EASY to wash; I just use one of those baseball-cap washer contraptions, (available here at Amazon too), and throw it in the washing machine. I let it air-dry. It dries quickly.
Since he uses this Carhartt hat exclusively for work, I always have a couple I keep in the drawer, for when they wear-out, so he'll always have at least one on-hand, (it's a good idea, like keeping a spare set of shoelaces). The problem is, he's yet to wear one out! *lol*... he's been wearing the Black one and the Brown one for, I don't know, about 2-years now. So you really get your MONEY'S-WORTH out of them. He does like that they come in DIFFERENT COLOURS, so he can change them up that way.
You can't go wrong with this Carhartt Hat... wonderful WARMTH, STAYS put, SOFT to the touch, SHIELDS one's eyes, COVERS the top of one's ears, comes in different COLOURS, EASY to wash, DURABLE- (lasting a long time), and a great PRICE-point.
What's not to like?
