I love this hat. I had one for 20 years, but it was a bit too small, so I sized up. It's perfect for the Portland rain.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever

Robust hat!
January 09, 2012

This is a great hat. I got this for fly fishing and camping and it is a awesome hat. The material is really stiff so it stays in the shape you want, but then the heat from your head warms up the material to give a perfect fit. It would probably be too hot to wear somewhere like Florida, but for a use in Colorado it is perfect.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Cost, not a hat to wear in high humidity

Tough Hat
July 17, 2011

I like the rugged look and the quality build. I have only used this spring/summer hiking in +8000' elevation with relatively mild temps. I could see that this hat could be hot in very warm climates. Perfect for repelling rain, holds shape and I think will last for a number years with the look getting better. So far very satisfied.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

legndary craftsmanship and character, but heavy
August 10, 2010

As you can see, Filson hats are know for their legndary craftsmanship and character. As for me, it is almost impossible to find this hat of right size fedora and crown. But the oil finish tin cloth is heavy and thick. So it is totally unsuitable for wearing summer hats.
