I saw the hat posted around the time of the album release and did not initially react; although I knew I wanted it. After returning to the site several months later and not seeing it I thought I had missed my opportunity. Going through some old emails I was happy that one email contained the link for the hat, which I immediately purchased. It is a great product, of good quality and I have no regrets on spending the money. My wife shares the same opinion with one reviewer; the plastic sizing strips seems out dated, Yet, I’m not convinenced Velcro is more current.
