: Hats ordered!

01-11-2001, 11:25 AM
Hey gang, I just ordered the first batch of hats. I went with a good brand near the high end. They are model "summit" - 6 panel premium sanded twill, unstructured, low profile cap. Antique brass side panel eyelets, self-cloth backstrap with antique brass buckle and tuck-in grommet. Featuring a pre-formed visor.

The samples struck me as light enough for all season fishing and good quality workmanship right down to the brass eyelets and cloth / brass buckle. No cheap plastic straps, these are nice hats.

There will also be the words "www.flyfishingforum.com" arched over the back opening.

There will be a mix of khaki w/ forest brim, full khaki, sand with olive brim, and light olive (full).

Juro, they look great... Did you get my e-mail about seeing you at the Show about the Gold Meembership?

Juro - what was the decision on the front logo?

Are these the same "blanks" as the Blue Northern caps? If so, they are VERY good! I'll probably take 2.

In the interest of time and cost, the logo in front will be...


with the arched URL along the back.

Similar but I believe is might be a step up from the BNTC "blank". Very similar in apperance though, nicer fit and fabric. I could be wrong though, we'll see!

Keep in mind things look a lot different stitched. I will get a sample soon.
