              • We offer FREE EXCHANGES/RETURNS in case you order the wrong size, so don't sweat it. We'll make sure you get a hat that fits like a dream, even if we have to send you 3-4 hats 'til we get it right. We'll even pay for all shipping as well.

    • Why Our Hats Are Better

            • Lifetime warranty on all hats. We cover your hat for life. Did the hat stretch/shrink? Did something unravel? We'll make it right. We stand behind all our products and have easy to reach customer service.

            • Built to last. While the other guys cut corners on quality to increase their margins, we don't believe in that. Even if you sweat a lot, it won't hurt the hat. This is thanks to an integrated sweat band that comes with every hat. Rain isn't a problem either. All our hats are also extremely resistant to water; rain will simply run off. Our strictest quality standards is garanteed to last a lifetime.

            • Hat will hold its shape. The Prospector Distressed Outback Felt Leather Fedora Hat is guaranteed to hold its shape, and will not stretch/shrink with everyday wear. Please do not mistreat our hats, however, by leaving them locked in a car on a 90° summer day. But, even in that worst case scenario, the hat shape can be restored by resting it on a coffee can.

            • Perfect fit, guaranteed. Did you accidentally order the wrong size? Don't sweat it. We'll make sure you get a hat that fits like a dream, even if we have to send you 3-4 hats ‘til we get it right. We'll even pay for all shipping charges!

      We offer free exchanges for any reason. We'll send you as many hats until we meet your expectations.

      Amazing

      The distressing really is unique to the hat you receive. Not one prospector will look like another. That is what makes this company amazing. They make each distressed hat a one of a kind. Thanks AHM!
