I purchased the deerskin hat in October 2002 at the Albuquerque Balloon festival. I'm a motorcyclist and the hat goes well with a leather vest. It has traveled tens of thousands of miles with me, on and off the bike. It is great in the bright sunlight and Texas heat. One would think that a black leather hat would be hot in the summer, but it isn't. It folds nicely in a vest pocket, or back part of the pants when not being worn. After nearly 19 years of use, it had to be repaired and is still useable.... but, it will be delegated to the position of 'hat #2' when my new one arrives! A great American product! BTW, the sewn in tag made it possible to track down the company and reorder.... no way I would have remembered who I bought it from.... 19 years ago!
