Slack Tide™ Ball Cap is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hat runs really large - did they use men's sizing? I would love this hat if it didn't run so large. I have a big head. All those "one size fits all winter hats"? - Sometimes they pop off my head (no kidding). I wanted something lightweight and packable for hiking. Love the color of this hat and style. But - it keep sliding around on my head. And because it doesn't fit snuggly, the wind whips it right off my head. It's not adjustable, so there doesn't seem to be cure for this. So I can't really recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay - but had to return Overall, I think the material and construction of this hat were great as usual. My problem was that I wasn't sure what size to order. My head circumference fell right in between the sm/md and the lg/xl. I have very thick hair, so I went with the lg/xl. Unfortunately, the hat was very loose on me - but the worst part is that there is no adjustment! I didn't realize this when I placed my order or I would have thought twice about buying it. There is only an elastic band around the inside of the hat - which, even if it did fit at one point, you know that elastic will stretch over time! Too bad, it could have been a nice hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat It's a comfortable ballcap. Well made. Good stretch in the headband and pre bent brim. I wear this hat daily. You won't regret it.
