Well I’ve had my hat for 12 years and it has to be said, it has perhaps, seen better days. Recently it has started to develop a hole in the top of it, at the point were I tend to grab it unsurprisingly. After all these years though, it’s still water proof (fur is a truly amazing thing) and still keeps the sun of me. However, Rachel got me a new one for my birthday which was very exciting. Not only does it fit better (having not shrunk with years of use in the wet British weather), but it looks much better. Just in case anyone is wondering, my hats are made by Akubra.
