Best hat ever! My go-to hat for hunting of any kind! Very lightweight, adjustable, durable, and packable!

Great hat! Light and super comfortable. My go to hat for bowhunting

Great lightweight warm weather hat. I bought for summer fly fishing and it’s everything it’s advertised to be. So light I forget it’s on, but sturdy enough that I can mount my flip focal eye glasses onto the bill so I can tie on flies. Another solid product from a Sitka great and camo pattern looks great too!

Love this hat for early season elk hunting! Just wish it was also offered in elevated 2, just rename it the ESW.

Great low profile design. Wicks moisture well. My go to warm weather hat.

I’ve never been a fan of the trucker or bass ball style caps but this hat is totally different. With the five panel design the cap sits low and fits very closely to my head. I also like the draw string sinch vs. the Velcro that gets caught and snags everything. The material this is made from doesn't overly trap heat and drys out fast. The underside of the bill is black and helps to absorb any glare when glassing. I liked this cap so much I’ve purchased a second one.

Very comfortable hat. The sides are a mesh material, the top isn't, but the material is very thin and airy. There is no button on top, so using with hearing protection is great!

This is hands down my favorite hat I own. I wish so bad they made these in different patterns and even solid colors. If they did, I'd own one of each. It is the lightest weigh hat i've ever owned, and it is the most breathable.

This hat fits like a second skin. The adjustable cable is awesome and does not interfere with my clothing. All other caps have Velcro that gets stuck to my jackets and shirts, and can cause noise while stalking or at shot time. You should make this adjustment the go to on all your hats. Like all Sitka gear, well constructed and functional.

A Tale of Two Roars

Rustic wooden gates groaned open as our Toyota HiLux rumbled through. We navigated the rutted, winding dirt road; every pothole and washboard negotiated revealing another layer of the towering Andes Mountains. A gin-clear river meandered through the valley floor. Willows on the cusp of fall color shimmered in the cool afternoon breeze. This was the start of the annual breeding season for red deer in northern Patagonia—also known as the roar.
