Absolutely the best hat out there
I’m on my third hat... every one better than the last. I’m not done. Quality is great, fit is great, service is great.
Fits well. Feels good. Lots of compliments.
It is a wonderful hat. The Brim smaller than it looks in the photos and didn't give the projection from the sun that I needed so I sent it back for a Gatsby.
Incidentally the size is about a perfect for a 71/2 so you don't have to worry about needing a 75/8 if sometime 71/2 is too small in some hats.
I bought this hat for a summer trip to Rome and have used it for two other warm weather trips. Because it is packable, not crushable, I made sure to stuff clothing inside and to insure the brim was flat in my pack. Having done this, I had absolutely no problem with packing the hat inside soft-sided, checked luggage,
My one concern was getting caught in a shower with the hat so, following the advise of the Ultrafino people, I sprayed the hat with Scotchguard. But it never rained, so I don't know how the hat would have fared.
In summary--completely satisfied!
