I bought this hat as an exact replacement for one I've had for six years. With the mesh for ventilation and wide brim for the sun and rain the old hat was great. It is now made in a different country and definitely not as well made. I also had to add a liner to the inside to get it to fit even though it is supposed to be the same size as the old hat. The leather drawstring is stiff and the sliding tab is thin and wimpy. Still, not a bad hat for the money. Just not as good as they once were. I'll probably look around for a different one when it comes time to replace it.
I purchased this excellent hat on-line just three days before my 11 day Sierra Backpacking hike. The hat worked out great and providing excellent shade and protection. I did give it a good ScotchGard treatment before the hike, so no sweat or water stains or other similar problems. The hat retained its shape wonderfully and provided excellent ventilation on even the warmest days travelling the 60 miles from South Lake to North Lake (over 3 Passes - Bishop, Muir and Piute - all nearly at 12,000 ft elevation). I highly recommend this Dorfman product.
