PROS:

Re­tains the clas­sic look and ben­e­fi­cial prop­er­ties of wool felt, but in a soft pack­able form

Sev­eral col­ors avail­able, rang­ing from bright to sub­dued

NOTES:

This hat is made in the USA from

100-per­cent wool LiteFelt, a ma­te­rial that’s soft and flex­i­ble enough to be crushed or packed in a suit­case without dam­age. If you read our wool base­layer guide last is­sue, you’ll re­call it ex­cels at mois­ture man­age­ment, re­pelling wa­ter from its sur­face and in­su­lat­ing your skin — the Pantropic Lo­gan of­fers those same ben­e­fits. Its pantropic.biz 3-inch brim can be steamed into a slight con­tour, but re­mains floppy when worn. The high-qual­ity leather chin cord con­tin­ues up to wrap around the crown, form­ing a sim­ple but el­e­gant band. It’s topped off with a slider made from tagua, the hard white “veg­etable ivory” pro­duced by South-Amer­i­can palm trees.

CONS:

The 1/8-inch-thick felt ma­te­rial is comfy in fall, win­ter, and spring, but may feel a bit sti­fling in warm sum­mer months.

While steam­ing the hat can add a slight con­tour to the brim, it’s too soft to hold it for long.
