NICK The only time I ever had to replace it was when i out grew it. Now I've had the same one for 5 years and it's still in great condition! MATT Have had the hat for about 12 years and still looks great. Best hat money I have ever spent...Looking to get another one as wife complains it is looking a little "worn". RUSS SEUFFERT Great hat! Extremely well made. Have had mine for many years and still get compliments. GUS Found one in an old cabin, fits perfect I have been looking for a hat just like this on for years. I Love it and best of all it was free I will totally buy another if this one ever wears out. KAT I had my "Adventure Hat" for over 8 years when it ran away from me. I look forward to the arrival of my new favorite hat!
