I'm going on year 4 with this hat. I know it's been out of stock for a while. I'm remaining hopeful that there is another production run coming soon! But for my review, I prefer low crown hats since I have big ears. In general, I wear a hat that is either Medium or a Medium/Large. Trucker hats generally hit the to of my ears and the mesh tends to irritate my ears since it holds they hold the crown up, especially when wearing a beanie over the top. I have worn other 5 panel hats and low profile crown hats of different materials from all different indoor and outdoor brands from Outdoor Research, Patagonia, North Face, REI, Filson, Burberry, Banana Republic, Polo, Nike, but this hat handles sweat, breathability, sweat staining, drying, warmth, flexibility, holds shape, and comfort better than any cap I've ever worn. If you get a hold of one of these, don't lose it!
I bought one of these over a year ago and it is my go to hat. Nothing else rivals the breathability, durability and comfort of this hat. Has not faded or become worn in any way! Only trouble is they aren’t in stock very often and when they go back in stock they sell out quick! Next time they come back I’m snagging three!
Great hat. I wear mine almost daily. It’s my go to hat for all things hunting. I’d really like to see solid colors, hunter orange and earth. I have to wear a different hat for big game season to stay legal. I tried buying another brands five panel that was hunter orange but the quality of that hat was awful.
Goofy-looking but that adds to the charm of it and function>form. I wore it for our very hot bow opener and it was awesome. I finally had a bead of sweat run down my face (missed my eyes), so I took it off for a second. It was crazy how much sweat it had caught in the sweatband. A little gross haha, but it had kept all of that sweat from going in my eyes. And all that sweat was due to the heat and my activity-level, not the hat being too hot. It is water-resistant so it gives you more weather protection than a regular cotton cap but it breathes much better than full-blown Gore-tex hats that I have from other companies. I have a big melon head but it adjusts so it fits great and the tag cuff merino beanie fits great on top of it.
unarguably the absolute best hat that could ever be created. Pairs well with a beanie in the cold. Dries up faster then your girlfriend/wife then she sees you in a hat that’s not in a firstlite 5-panel tech cap
adjustable to fit a wide range of heads. I used to buy kids snowboard helmets for my lil dome because they’re cheaper. This hat fits my tiny head with room to go smaller. When adjusted so small the firstlite 5-panel tech cap still doesn’t bunch up above the adjustment area.
I once took my (at the time only) firstlite 5-panel tech cap off while riding a jetski and buckled it around my wrist to I wouldn’t loose it. Well I was hauling a little too much a because the wind still ripped that B off my wrist. Never saw it again. I did however have a new firstlite 5-panel tech cap ordered before I had the jetski back to the dock. And yes, I never traveled with just one firstlite 5-panel tech cap again. 1 is none and 2 is one.
We need firstlite to make the firstlite 5-panel tech cap in solid colors. NEED!!!
My favorite hat. Would love it in orange and olive!
I ordered the Men’s Corrugate Guide Jacket & Pants for my husband for Christmas. Some may look at the price and shy away from ordering, but the quality is impeccable and is certainly made to last. He absolutely loved it, as did our other Christmas guests.
Love your Camo, solid colors in this hat would be awesome
I wear this hat all of the time, and I’m not generally a hat guy. Such a great hat I want it in another color. Please, make this hat in hunter orange! Please!
Perfect! I want a solid hunter orange version of this, can you help a brother out? Maybe even a solid green or tan too!
