Rated 1 out of 5 by imageman Disappointed Packer Hat
My head gets warm and sometimes sweaty when hiking, even on cool days in the fall. This hat, I think because it is oil coated, contains the moisture even with the side air holes. You take it off and there are beads of sweat on its roof. Not what I like or had expected. Now searching for another make.

A hat you fold up and put in your pocket . . . who'd have thunk it. It's crazy but it works. I wondered what a " waxed" hat would be like. It has a different feel but it unfolds into a nice looking and very functional rain protector ( which is what I purchased it for). You can wear it all the time too if you'd like. The brim can snap up to the sides. Sturdy construction. It will last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ronnie50 good functional hat
My husband and I both purchased these hats for our trip to Estes Park this month. We needed hats that would protect us from the rain and sun during long hikes in the unpredictable weather of the Rockies. The hats are comfortable, light in weight, and have cute styling options. My husband got the loden green which is a nice dark color. I got the chocolate brown (which looked black in the picture) and is a nice dark chocolate brown.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jholmes7405 Not as expected
I like the hat, but it is not as I expected. It has no structure, is thin ... can almost see through it, and is oilier than I expected. But it does fold up nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeffreySB Best foul weather hat ever
I think this is the best foul weather hat I've ever owned. Rain, Snow, Sleet... nothing stops it. Keeps my head and neck dry, and fits well enough that the wind doesn't take it. Excellent product, and easy to maintain with Filson wax products.

This was a gift and was well-received. The adjustable band gives it a personalized fit. The quality is also good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ludville waxed cotton hat
I am a big fan of LL Bean but I did not like the look or fit of the hat. I appreciate the return policy . I returned the hat the same day . I also will continue to buy most of my clothes from LL Bean.

Love the look and feel of this hat. Nice touches and features and has that that great waxed hat - camping smell. Very comfortable and nothing that can irritate a person that shaves their head. Well done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by violinviolapiano Men's and Women's Waxed Cotton Packer Hat
I ordered this hat to match my new loden green down jacket, and they are a perfect pqir! Alone, my Packer Hat will be an all-year friend. Instead of a chin strap, there is a drawstring around the crown which tightens to fit the head. As the crown is quite deep, this drawstring is sufficient to keep the Packer Hat well on my head! I really like the deep shade of loden, and the hat is so very light is weight and comfortable to wear. The waxed cotton canvas is great insulation and the wide brim is great protection. The brim may be snapped up on the sides for brighter days. Highly recommended!
