My hat is whatever hat I can fit on my head... Which isn't many. No company makes a ball style cap that fits my head. The adjustable snap back kind will sometimes fit on the last snap adjustment... But then the hat looks so stretched that it's just weird. My Simms size XL flexfit hat is stretched to oblivion... And the "flex" no longer flexes.

At a trade show two weeks ago, I told the custom hat builder at the booth next to me he didn't have a hat in his booth that would fit me.. He laughed and set one on my head... And set it did... on TOP of my head, not where it should. He said it was the biggest head he had ever tried to put a hat on.

There is my sob story for you.

Default Re: "hat" love

I'm like MB, I think I have a problem, I have a ton of hats golf hats, jeep hats, camo hats, fishing hats, military hats, cowboy hats, beenies, winter hats,

I'm ok though because I don't have one of those with the built in sun shades down the back, and I don't own a buff (yet).

I got myself a free Winston Rod Co. hat back in 2004 at the big tackle show in Denver but never wore it until I got that Winston Spey rod last year. Now I'll have it worn out before summer I would love to have a Hardy cap but after all their reels that I've bought over the past 34 years I can't pay for a hat! All of my favorites were free with a purchase or a dealer gave them to me to get rid of me A couple were gifts.

All except the fur hat, that one cost a bunch.
