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.

Nice hat, great stetson quality but a cheesy band. Be nice if a choice of bands was offered. LL Bean great shipping as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nonametoday It's a Stetson. The name says it all.
This is a beautifully made fur felt hat from the John B. Stetson company. The fitting guide is spot-on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrBill1 Good hat, well made
I exchanged a 7 5/8 because it was too snug and got a 7 3/4 which is not quite snug enough. The hat is nice looking and well made. Time will tell if it's worth its price. I bought the Silverbelly color and wore it with a black topcoat. My seven year-old grandson said I looked like a detective.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great looking hat!
I have been looking at this hat for years. I decided to put it on my wish list for Christmas this year. The quality truly lives up to the Stetson name. The fit is great. A classic! I look forward to wearing it for many years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MuttMac Good hat
A good hat for all around wear & use. I got the silverbelly which is a nice hat. I wear it outside to work in. Plan on it being a heirloom to leave my grandson. Brim seems a little too flexible but I believe I can stiffen it up. Good hat, wear it as a work hat, wear it as a dress hat. It wears for all situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTBakerStrider Great addition to a outdoor wardrobe
This is my first purchase of a fur-felt hat and I could not be more pleased. The fit is perfect and the size runs true to my historical Military covers. This hat appears to be exceptionally well made and and looks good. The color is a little darker and greener than the photo, and I like it better. It is nice to be able to purchase a product that is made in the USA and is of high quality. If you are looking for a "teardrop crown", "snap-brimmed" fedora for rugged outdoor activities; hiking, hunting, fishing, photography or you just want an improvement in your appearance, this may be the hat for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jlmiaa Love this hat
I could not be more please with this hat. The fit and finish are excellent, the color, material (rabbit fur and wool) and style (crown height, brim width) are exactly what I have been looking for. Stetson has a reputatation for quality that is well-represented in this product. I look forward to many years of use and enjoyment.
