Why did you choose this?
I measure 22.5, that divided X 4 is 5.625. what am i doing wrong?
Best Answer: I don't know why you are doing this calculation. The sizing chart I am looking at, from the Down Under listing says that size M is 21-7/8 to 22-1/4 and size L is 22-5/8 to 23 inches. Your head falls right in between. Look for the chart and decide if you would rather chance it being too large or too small. I ordered my husband the large, and it seemed pretty close to the average, one-size-fits-all hats he has bought at tourist places. Hope this helps.
Is this hat sticky? I am looking at another one and someone said it was sticky. Thank you for any help!!
Best Answer: The hat is not sticky. My fiancÃ© says it was exactly what he wanted for this style of hat. And it looks great on him.
Thank you, Yvonne
does this have a sting?
Best Answer: I think you mean string right...yes it does have a string and I love my hat, very comfortabe too
Does the brim have a wire in it for shaping?
Best Answer: Yes. It is perfect for storing in tight compartments like a motorcycle side bag. I wear my helment while riding and when I get to my destination, I pull out the hat and shape it in seconds then I'm good to go. Great hat!
Is the Oilskin Hat a fold away?
Best Answer: I would say no, it is quite rigid rather than floppy. I think it would want a hat box to travel, or it would be placed upside down in luggage, stuffed and surrounded by other clothing.
do they have adjustable head band insert like the sol air?
Best Answer: to my knowledge, the answer is no. the hat is built to fit said person, which is why they com in a variety of sizes, however, the "chin strap" is able to be used to hold the hat on your head in high wind. I realize this probably doesnt ansew your question, and Im sorry for any inconvience.
Where is it made?
Best Answer: Mine says "Made in Sri Lanka" so I imagine that will be fairly consistent with this hat.
What leather is the hat made with (cowhide, pigskin or something else) ?
Best Answer: It is a heavy oil-skinned canvas. The hat is shapable and waterproof. I have worn it out west on long dreary rides through the mountains and Ive worn it on an ALL DAY rainy event and it kept my head warm and dry. I would definately recommend it for the price!!!!
Does this hat come with the neck string?
Best Answer: Yes it does. The hat stays on in strong winds.
