We linked up with a 150 year old oilskin maker in Scotland to build the best naturally water repellent cap made. Halley Stevensons' has been waxing the best cotton in the World (with character, in their Baltic Works since 1864) We picked out their superior 8 ounce dry finish oilskin for its light weight, dryness of finish, and the natural beauty of its brown color and patina. Unlike nearly all of the heavyweight and clammy wax cotton hats made these days, the wax on these won't be doubling as your hair pomade.
We designed these hats to both properly repel rain and take full advantage of cotton's breathability in warmer and sunnier weather. Waxed cotton is a natural windstopper, so you may find this a necessity on climbs into the high country or trips to a windswept coast . While made for weather, (its not the hat you'll want to wear in the middle of the day in July) its still light enough to be your go-to cap.
This one is part of our new "22" line...minimal embelishment with premium materials and hand built in the USA. Small 22 leather flag label sewn next to a 3/4 " nylon strap. Plastic center release buckle allows for the most custom fit of any adjustable strapback system one cannot easily break. Finished with a proprietary lightweight sweatband that does not bulky and stays comfy over the long haul.
Patterned with a mid-deep 6 panel, unstructured crown, this is a deeper version of our original Classic cap, but comes with visor flat rather than precurved. It fits deeper when you bend/break in the visor.
