Small means SMALL!
My go-to hat when hiking. Quality build and I know that it'll last me a long time. Be sure to also pick up a can of Filson wax to keep it water repellent.
Helps block out the sun and little side vents help with cooling. Although, on sunny days, it does get hot and sweaty inside. Good purchase overall.
The good news is: I won’t be wearing this hat out very soon. The bad news is: it’s because I won’t be wearing it much. Why? Two reasons : 1) it’s too stiff. 2) Only a bit of sweating makes the band turn white with salt. “Local sponging” advised for cleaning, means I can’t wear it if I’m gonna sweat. Not what I had in mind.
