One "cool" hat,
July 25, 2013
By: Sandyman

"Since I always find reviews from customers to be helpful, I thought I would share my experiences with the Bitterroot Hat. First, it truly is cool. My last trip found me on the Red River in Northern New Mexico on a hot day. The hat allows good air circulation, good perspiration absorbtion with the "cool-max" liner, and the leather cord keeps the hat firmly on my head during those thunderstorm wind gusts.
Finally, the hat is very stylish and construction is outstanding. The Bitterroot Hat is one of my prized fishing kit items.
Good luck to my fellow fishers. Enjoy the waters, trust the journey, and feel the spirit."

Better than the picture,

"I have ordered many an Orvis clothing item and have been sometimes disappointed due to the picture being different than the item.
Received the hat yesterday and was impressed with the packaging and quality of workmanship. I am very fussy when it comes to fit and looks in hats, and found the fit and finish to be perfect. A+ Recommend this hat to anyone looking for style and function on sunny days! Great for boating with strap that keeps you from losing hat in water.

"Tried on several different Orvis sun hats and this was the best fit. A really well made hat with a good wide brim. The chin strap is also very handy for windy conditions."
