To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Don’t buy. First order came in a box and had three creases that we steamed and wouldn’t come out. Sent back and received hat in a vanilla envelope🤦🏼♀️ Only had two creases to our surprise. Wasn’t at a discount price from what Sitka was selling then so didn’t expect bad quality. Lesson learned!!!
Couple things with this hat...first being that it IS large. Many of the reviews I read previous to buying the hat mentioned this, so I would like to echo those sentiments. I am 6’4” tall and typically wear 7 5/8 - 7 3/4” fitted hats. There are seven holes in the SnapBack and I have five to spare; usually, I am on the last or second last hole. It reminds me of when I was young and I would put my Dad’s hats on! Second, the mesh is quite coarse and not sure how it will wear. Last, the brim and fabric are wonderful...really soft and nice to touch. I like the Gore Optifade because I have other Sitka stuff in that pattern.
Ordered this hat and had to send it back. Sizing for this particular hat is way different then the supposed identical hat at my local cabelas. As for the fit it is extremely to large and when tightened up the mesh wrinkled. Speaking of the mesh back half of the hat is very very stiff almost crunchy. Never had a mesh back hat feel this way before. The cami pattern on the front had on two tiny 1/4” spots of green and didn’t really match any of my other Sitka subalpine Camo. Mine also arrived in new packing with the cardboard inside the hat but missing tags. Good luck
i'm so sick of buying camo hunting hats that don't fit. I have a 7 3/4 fitted hat size (can make due with 7 5/8 when hair is short) and this hat is the best i have ever purchased. sick of buying the fleet farm/cabelas camo that lasts 1 season before it is stretched out. this won't shrink, fully adjustable snap back that is deep enough. looks great and will last a long time. i wear them everyday. in the bow stand (elevated II) and when hunting small game (Blaze). they are worth every penny and i will probably buy 5 more just so they don't decide to change them up or discontinue them and they'll be lost and gone forever. Buy it. you will be happy you did!
Love this hat!!! I’ve sweat in it tons of times and it’s never shown any sweat lines. Why are there bad reviews? Seriously don’t understand them. This is one of my favorite hats (and I have A lOT). Looks great, wears great!
I have dozens of Sitka gear items. This is the only one I had to send back. It was very large on my average sized male head. Unless you have a really large head, be aware this could be on the large side. I had to tighten it three settings in and even then, it looked ridiculous on me from the side.
Listen to the other reviews. Unless you have a problem with hats not fitting because your head is too big, this hat will be too big for your head. I will need to get the women's hat for an appropriate fit i guess. Package arrived fast and undamaged. The people it worked for either have huge heads or low standards.
