Care

We recommend weatherizing your leather hat before taking them into the elements, but test a small patch first to check for potential color changes. If scuffs happen, no problem. Grab a leather brush and gently rub stains away with a leather cleaner or a small dab of baby shampoo or gentle soap. Keep your leather hat conditioned with oil.

This is perhaps the greatest hat ever conceived!

I'll just come right out and say it:

I have a big head, and for the longest time, I yearned for a unique lid of my own. Alas, nothing ever seemed to fit...

... then, whilst traveling through South Dakota about four years back, I stumbled across Al's Oasis in Oacoma. I finally discovered two hats that suited me, a leather fedora and Minnetonka Moccasin's "Fold Up" Hat (dark brown). The "Fold Up" just looked too perfect on my honkin' noggin; I had finally found MY hat. Sorry leather fedora of unknown make and model, the "Fold Up" won my vote.

Cut to four years later, by which point I was almost never seen outside the house without "Hatty". It had endured no less than three torrential downpours (and more head sweat than I'd care to admit) in a rather short period of time. Alas, I had unfortunately worn "Hatty" out in the process. Jotting down the information from inside the chapeau, I was able to locate 9523 XL (the dark brown version) on this very website, and my oh my, I don't think I'd ever considered selecting the "Next Day" option so seriously in regard to an online purchase prior to yesterday...

... but I took the leap.

This morning, I woke up to the UPS driver and boom, there it was! Brand new in the box! Now I'll grant you, I'd spent four years breaking in the previous one (which had likely already seen some "breaking in" from folks trying it on at Al's Oasis), so it is admittedly a strange feeling to wear a completely and absolutely brand spanking new model. Nevertheless, I'm so psyched that I have a replacement for "Hatty"!

In conclusion... excellent service, lightning fast delivery, and a reasonable price have made this a more-than-recommended item. An incredible all around experience has made me a continued fan of Minnetonka Moccasin.

God bless you all!

P.S. I actually did a stock check over the phone before I ordered, but it turned out that was entirely unnecessary. According to the lady on the phone, as long as you CAN select a product and size on the website, it should be in stock. :)

Best hat I have owned

Best hat I have owned. Folds up nicely and stows away on my motorcycle and pops back into shape. Fit gets better and better as I wear it as the leather takes the shape of my head. [...]

Most reliable hat I've ever owned

I bought this hat from a store in california about two years ago now, and I've been wearing it ever since. This hat has done everything from keep my head dry in harsh weather, to keeping me cool and shaded in the heat. Im a very active individual, and i have to say this hat has endured more than what i thought it could handle, and it still looks like new. If you have about 55-60$ to your name, do yourself a favor and get this hat. You will not regret it. [...]

Best hat I've ever owned

Found this hat randomly in a store in LA. Have had it for around 10 years now. It's gone through the American southwest, to the Andes and with me on numerous field excavations and archaeological digs. Extremely durable, comfortable, fantastic for sun protection. Really can't say enough about how great this hat is. My absolute favorite. When folded, I wouldn't call it extremely compact (it's bulky in a pocket) but it's a great feature for sticking it in a bag or backpack. And there's something to be said about pulling it out and "flicking" it into shape. Makes me feel like a hat magician. [...]
