    The hat fits perfectly. I wish that they did not use Velcro. That increases the material wear in hoodies, neck Gators, and masks, but I still love it. It is breathable, light, and somewhat water resistant. It is well worth the money and will last for a long time.

    This hat is comfortable and dries fast, but the size adjustment is velcro, which means it sticks to any hood you wear. Annoying and unnecessary. Sitka is great at technological gear and I love every other piece I have; they could have picked about any other way to adjust size. Instead, I have a piece of leukotape covering up the hooks on the Velcro.

    This hat is absolutely great. I had ordered several hats from the competition and they never fit right. This one fits like a glove and the material is very comfortable. I have a larger head and this fit very well. While it is a great fot for me, the versatility of the design would fit any size head extremely well.

    It’s a lightweight and comfortable ball cap. Nothing special but an affordable way to camo up your dome. Quick drying when you sweat through it or get it blown into the marsh on accident. Buy one in every pattern you wear because chances are you will have plenty of occasions to wear it.

    My favorite hat, hands down. When put this bad boy on, I knew it was love at first wear. The way it caresses my head in its warm snug embrace brings me back to it daily. But seriously, this hat rocks so much I have two. One in Open Country for hunting, and another in Mud for daily wear. Its lightweight, comfortable, and durable. One thing I did notice, my Open Country feels slightly lighter weight than my Mud.

    Great caps! I usually prefer beanies unless it is raining or the sun is in my eyes, but I like Sitka's caps over any others. They just seem more comfortable to me, and I have several. The only downfall is the Velcro adjustment on the back seems to catch all the hoody items like the Fanatic Hoody. Really get annoying after awhile.

    I'll start by saying I love my Dakota waterfowl gear. Best money can buy period. As far as this hat goes it's great Quality and comfortable but is made for people with large head. I Really wish stika would come out with true fitting hat. My preference would be if they made a hat like what franchise 47. Have sizes small medium large etc. Flexfit hats still don't fit great and sizes very so much. I would spent good money for a true fitted waterfowl hat. They Flexfit they came out with in my opinion is ugly and don't fit well. Just stick with the material used in this hat full Camo and make in 4 or 5 sizes. Hope to see in on the market
    Thanks

    I've had this hat for about two weeks now in optifade open country, and like people have said...Yes, I'ts a hat, but a $30 dollar hat should look and fit better in my opinion. It just does not look so good on and makes me feel like a young kid playing baseball again. My head is a normal size i thought, but my friend put it on and he just laughed. It was like the KUIU hats almost in comparison which kuiu totally messed up on that one. It does feel comfortable on my forehead, and I love the camo, but just wished it fit me better. But again, It's just a hat and Sitka can't knock everything out of the park I guess :)

    Awesome, crazy comfortable hat! This is my go to hat for early archery, and blackpowder here in NC. Also, never leaves my head during spring turkey season either.

    The only con I would say is that when washed, the lining around the headband portion got all knotted up, which may shorten the life of the hat.

    Everyone has that one lucky hat. The hat that has been with you every step of the way. The hat that you wear when checking trail cameras or while pulling back your bow on an old buck. For me this is that lucky hat. I've been wearing it for years, and it has brought me a lot of good luck while remaining comfortable all day long. The Sitka cap is extremely light and breathable making for a perfect combination. I've had the opportunity to test gear for GORE and this is the one hat that I take with on every hunt!

    If you have a big head this hat would fit great but if you have a medium sized head then it isn't for you, pushes my ears down unless I tuck them under the hat, wore the hat once and that's it. Sitka needs to come out with a flexfit hat like everyone else.

    I have a rather large head and one of my biggest frustrations is finding a great cap that sits too high on my head. I was extremely pleased to find this hat, put it on and it actually fit! The elasticity of the material makes this hat extremely comfortable to wear all day. An oft-overlooked feature of this hat is the pliability of the bill. On sunny days, bending the bill more to keep the sun out of my eyes was a huge help. Overcast and rainy days...flatten it out for increased visibility. On cold days, I keep this hat on and pull the Sitka Dakota beanie over the top for added warmth. Another fantastic product I had the opportunity to test for GORE!

    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.
