Rated 5 out of 5 by LaFrance A Classic Hat
When I visited the L.L. Bean store in Maine in June I was looking for a hat. I bought a grey Moose River hat. Liked it so much I ordered this one as soon as it was in stock. Best two hats I have ever owned. The felt is sturdy, the fit is perfect. The style is perfect for both casual and formal wear.

I am loving this hat. It is packaged with great care and attention. The fit was slightly too big (using the measurement guidelines), so I had it replaced with the next smaller size. Perfect fit and no hassle with LL Bean. The felt quality is impressive and luxurious. I really like the brim width and stiffness....allows me to turn the brim up or down to look smart.

Ordered a silver belly size 7 1/2 and had to return it for next larger size. The first one was excellent except for size, the 7 5/8 arrived today and doesn't seem to be the same quality, liner seems to be falling out, a few crimps in the felt, and no LL Bean name in the hat band as was in the first one.
Guess I'll give it a try in the light Oregon rain tonight -

I ordered the silverbelly in a 7-5/8. It fits well, and I get compliments from colleagues who think of themselves as sharp dressers. I put the hat on the hatjack for a few hours to fix the shape a bit (my skull is XL and oblong). Two days it arrived, it was spattered by several drops of spaghetti sauce as a waitress packed up the remnants of my wife's meal. The hat cleaned up wonderfully after being dabbed with abundant seltzer water. Good hat.

I bought this hat as a replacement for one just like it I have worn for 20+ years. Still love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 Moose Creek Hat
I love the hat, but I expected it to have a slightly smaller brim. I have two Stetson Statoliners. These are hats that were originally produced and named to honor to Boeing Stratoliner, unfortunately for the airplane WWII brought an end to production and the existing planes went to the Army Air Corp. The only difference in this hat and the Stratoliner is the airplane hat pin verses the Stetson hat pin. Otherwise it is the same price, same hat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RichardP Nice hat, with reservations
Love the shape of this hat, fits well. I bought the silver...good color. But I regret that the hat band is wimpy. And the stitching of the lining to the hat, which should be covered by the band, is sewn both erratically and in places too far toward the brim. It is therefore visibly protruding in spots. I have ordered a better band to attempt a cover up. If that doesn't work, back the hat will go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luthier One great hat . . .
I've been wearing my two Moose River Hats in Khaki Green and Silverbelly for probably 20 years now. I typically wear the Silverbelly hat in the summer and for dressier occasions, and the Khaki Green hat when it's cold, and for daily use and informal occasions. They both still fit and look just great. As I have moved and worked around the country, they have handled the Kansas wind, the Mohave desert sun, and the Washington rain just fine. Highly, highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by realindy No hat box/imperfections
I returned the first hat because of an imperfection. The second hat also has a slight imperfection but I decided I was done trading hats with LLBean. However, I must note that the quality of this hat is not to the standard of a Stetson Open Road (price similar), AND, no hat box. A brown corrugated shipping box is not the kind of hat box you want to put on your closet shelf. Why no real hat box? I would gladly put an LLBean hat box in my closet.
