    Default New hat

    I may have found an alternative to Tilley. I've been wearing Tilley hats for the last 10 years or more, but this one looks interesting and is priced at about 1/2 the cost...The removable top is kinda goofy though.

    That zip top is beyond goofy - and it's hard to beat a Tilley for quality!

    Not a bad hat and you don't have to unzip the top.

    I think if you either completely remove the top of have it fully closed, it's a nice hat. I wouldn't walk around with partially unzipped. And think you can wear it as a tricorn.

    I kinda like it, esp the wire in the brim (if it is durable) so you can custom the brim accordingly. The zip off top could be a neat feature in hot weather. You could either unzip it for extra ventilation....OR.....unzip it, dump some ice cubes down in there on top of your noggin and zip it back up.

    Oh...and this is my 600th post. YAY!!!!

    The wire durability is my main concern, but mostly I just wear my hats bush style. However, in my truck the rear brim gets squashed against the headrest, so I can see using the bendable feature for that.

    It's only $40, so...I've lost one Tilley and given another away. I wouldn't feel so bad about losing this one.

    That's exactly what happened to my now signature hat. From rubbing on the seat, it finally wore away and allowed the plastic stiffener to pop out. Now I'm scrambling to find a way to fix it because the hat is no longer made. I wrote to the original manufacturer to see if they had any leftover stock and never got a response, so I guess a repair will have to happen. How to do it without it looking like a patchwork job seems to be more of a problem than I would have imagined.
