I am disabled and have to watch out for the heat on my medications. This hat does the job and is washable. When I return to normal work once I am healed, I will remember to go only Carhartt for my manual labor clothing(James 4:13-17).
I own three of these. The tan, the green, and the grey. They fit great and last a long time (going on 2 years of having them). I wear them for all my outdoor work around the house. They do fade, but honestly they look pretty good faded, personally. I would say it fades to about 70% of the original color.
I had a hat like this for almost 15 years before it fell apart on me finally when the wife decided to wash the work off of it. The best part was the bill held its form the whole time. I don’t ever remember having to adjust it at all like some of the newer hats out there with the flimsy bills or the new flat brimmed ones. The hat held up very well in all aspects and they are fairly priced to me as well.
