Practical multi-use; well made and great looking.
I purchased two; black for my twin bother, brown for me. Twin is a computer geek who also works on a farm for excercise, out door environment and stress relief. Needless to say he is generally analytical to the point of annoyance. He talked about getting an outdoor hat for Washington State weather for months-I found the Down Under oilskin hat and had them delivered without his input/knowledge. Well, “Mr. Analytics” raved about it. Used it on the farm in rain, wind and sun. Even protected his head while removing overgrown/invasive blackberries. Great item and Stateline prices, contact and shipping have been excellent.

Good quality hat
Very nice hat. Fits well; true to size. 7-3/8 size for large. I especially like the fact that it’s waterproof. It could be warm in the summer though. We shall see.

I got it for my father for Christmas it was a hit. Was concerned about size, we are known for having large heads, it fit great. Seems to be good for any kind of weather also like the way it was preshaped.

This oilskin hat looks dressier than some others. My husband can do yard work in this, play golf in it or go out to eat wearing it.

I measure 22.5, that divided X 4 is 5.625. what am i doing wrong?
jim c on Feb 3, 2015
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!!
Glory G on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The hat is not sticky. My fiancé says it was exactly what he wanted for this style of hat. And it looks great on him.

Thank you,
what size

Who makes it?
A shopper on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This hat is made by Down Under, size chart link below.
Is the Oilskin Hat a fold away?
rbartonx on Feb 7, 2015
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.
does this have a sting?
Danna D on Jan 19, 2014
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?
A shopper on May 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does.
do they have adjustable head band insert like the sol air?
jim c on Feb 3, 2015
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.
Does it have wire around the brim?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I cannot see it but it sure feels like there is a wire around the brim of the hat!
Very nice hat! JB
Where is it made?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2016
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) ?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2015
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?
GAIL M on Mar 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. The hat stays on in strong winds.
Well I measured and I am 21 3/4. Right in the middle. Should I go small or med?
Bullseye Baldie on Dec 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In my experience, these hats can "grow" with wear, especially daily wear. My first hat I bought bigger, and after a few weeks I added a strip of felt around the inside of the headband. The next 2 hats I bought on the smaller end, and after just a few days the fit perfectly. Adjusting the brim helps, too.
These are thE BEST hats Zi have ever worn, bar none,

A shopper on Jul 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Glued on permanently, not intended to be removable.
how much does the hat weigh?
Glenn Z on Mar 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: about as much as a regular riding helmet? they aren't too heavy. Very comfortable to wear and really keep the rain off. I wear it around town (live in Seattle), great for that too.
