The sweeping round curved brim and the pinched crown of a cowboy hat was possibly the most defining symbol of the American West. This hat was developed to provide maximum protection from the sun and stand up to daily abuse. At Fishpond we have lived under these hats for decades and wanted to add our own spin to the American tradition with our Eddy River hat, complete with Fishpond’s signature Brown Trout jacquard webbing hat band.
Really like the hat. Seems like really high quality. I ordered an XL. I wear a size: 7-5/8 pre-fit hat. This fits just right for my large melon. Just snug enough.
I have fished with this hat many times it has become not just my fishing hat. Ware it often as a nice comfortable head ware piece that looks great as a casual and as a dressy hat. It is great in the sun, wind, and rain! It has room to ware your sunshade hood under neath without feeling hot or uncomfortable. It is a well made quality addition to your fishing gear. The wide brim is functional and stylish., and the brown trout hat band adds splash of color and allows it to be worn with with so many ward drobe choices.
