Thank you for your feedback.
I originally ordered this for my two-year-old son; who has recently been smitten with hats of all kinds.
The hat is well made, looks just like Gandalf's hat, and fits perfectly with the wig and beard set.
My son used this hat for his Halloween costume and it was perfect.

    Wow delivered in three days. I was skeptical on other Gandalf hats, but this is a good one. The size & shape is right, thick felt material like craft felt at Hobby Lobby or walmart, in fact matches perfectly with the 5 yard bolt of smoke grey felt I bought to make a robe & cloak (since I found out Rubies Gandalf costume was a pathetic thin granny gown). The hat has an official 'Hobbit' movie tag from New Line Cinema/MGM/Warner Bros, an adjustable headband inside the liner, fits adult size head, and a pocket inside the headliner for ?? I don't know yet. The cone has a flexible wire to hold the shape up, despite a few wrinkles from packaging I could have worn this to a party straight from the mailbox. The cone has some batting (stuffing) inside, could use a little more to fill it out but overall it has the right shape to pass for the real thing. See pics. Recommended!

    I have a better opinion of this hat than some reviews who may have stated that it was simply a costume piece, for use, perhaps, once a year or so. I found the construction to be better than that, but perhaps not up to the seamless perfection required by the big G, the most important wizard of Middle Earth. I wanted a hat to proclaim "Middle Earth" and I would have preferred one more suitable to Tom Bombadil, which is a similar shape, but perhaps a stiffer crown, and red, not grey. But except for the ring, this hat is perhaps no more clear evocation of the "Middle Earth" imagery. I looked far and wide, and I could not find a better Gandalf Hat from Amazon or elsewhere. With proper care, this will last for several years. Unlike other "one size fits all" costume ware, this hat has a real size adjustment strip, not just elastic, in the headband.

    The overall quality is adequate but it's far too short in the cone to be a proper "Gandalf hat". Very obvious seams are a small disappointment as it clearly is a low-grade costume piece. The seller's speed of delivery was a bright spot and for most purposes this will do nicely. Would recommend for anyone who needs a medium-quality piece.

    I originally ordered this for my two-year-old son; who has recently been smitten with hats of all kinds. However, after receiving the product I realized that it had a much better purpose, for I could use it while administering examinations to the literature classes that I teach. Students will now know their fate ahead of time as I belt out, "You shall not pass!"

    This is NOT the molded plastic/rubber like a got from another company! With just a bit of Water Repellant Spray, I can wear this in almost any weather. It will add realism to the costume I'm putting together for a couple of costume parties. Just the right amount of "slouch" in the material to make it realistic.

    The quality on this hat was better than I expected (I own a few Elope-brand hats), it was the best price (around $20 USD) I could find on a hat I wanted to "re-work" for a costume project.

    I was NOT a fan of the interior wiring, on mine, it did not seem to hold a "stiffness" pose very well as depicted in the picture. This wasn't a huge deal for me and I just opened it up and removed the wire (the wire itself is actually a decent, insulated piece so if someone DOES have luck with theirs working the way I assume it is intended, it should last for awhile and should not cause any "sharpness" or "poking through" issues). I thought removing the wire would necessitate more stuffing, but this ended up not being the case for me and it holds it shape just fine. Color is good, fabric is good and the exterior of the hat itself is QUITE large.

    My only complaint MIGHT be the interior size for the head. As most Elope hats, there is a good quality Velcro extension, however I don't have a particularly large head and I find I need to leave it open to wear the hat all the way on my head. You might need some experimenting on positioning to wear it for a larger head. The weight of the stuffed part of the hat meant that if I wasn't wearing it pulled down over my forehead, it felt like it could fall off (and this was both before and after removing the wire).

    Because the fabric is a reasonably good quality mix of softness and stiffness to hold a shape, it's not very breathable and will get warm pretty quickly, which is not so bad for an inside, air-conditioned costume event, but less comfortable for an outdoor summer ren-fair, for example. With a wig AND the hat, you are probably going to be sweating a lot.

    Previous to starting my alterations, I have worn the hat in public several times to test it's durability and how it wears, and gotten lots of compliments.

    I think they skimped on the stuffing so the hat will pack flat and cost less to ship. They didn't add enough stuffing in the top of the hat and it flops on the right side. There is no way to get it to stand up because the hat is sewn and you would need to be a tailor to fix it.
    It was also a little small. The only saving point is it's made with quality materials. I guess I need to see a tailor..

    High quality hat! Was excited to find it was made of thick material that is not prone to bending on the brim. It feels like something that could be worn day after day. Not made of felt, more of a wool type material.
