  • GLIDER II Strapback

    GLIDER II Strapback -  $ 44.00

    I've always loved Pelicans - they have an ugly grace as they effortlessly ride updrafts along unbreaking swell for miles.  As I started riding 11'+ gliders, boards designed for ultimate trim, and connecting unbreaking sections of waves, it was the closest one could come to experience gliding like a pelican. Pelicans are also good signs for fishermen. Diving birds mean there is bait in the water and probably fish as well.  Any seafaring enthusiast has to at least respect them.

    The lightweight cotton ripstop unstructured upper is perfect of a day on the streams.  The waxed canvas underbrim was chosen to as a dull neutral to blend in with mountain/stream background, allowing all focus to be pointed toward the water and has an ultra dull finish to not reflect any light.

    Better than expected.

    I was hesitant to order this hat for two specific reasons. 1. My head is pretty big, longer than most (front to back) and 2. The no return policy. After reading a few reviews about people loving the fit, I decided to take the chance. First impression: the quality and craftsmanship is flawless. The bay is very appealing. The stitched graphic is clean and stands out. The ripstop material is nice and light. The best part of all, it fit my head. With a little steam to bend the bill how I like, this is the best bay purchase I’ve made in a while. Just ordered another in a different design. Two thumbs up.

    Awesome hats

    Just ordered on Wednesday and got them from California to Maryland by Friday. Phenomenal fit and great quality. The pelican is such a cool design, and I got it in this version along with the flannel one. Can not wait to buy more in the future!

    Above and beyond my expectations

    I own a bunch of hats but this one is the best quality hands down, very well made. I will definitely be purchasing some more!

    Replacement purchase

    I lost this hat last year and I had to buy it again! This is my favorite hat ever. Partially because it has a pelican on it. Pelicans are super cool. I also just love the material and the fit. Not a lot of hats fit my weird head very well and this thing fits like a glove. Except that it’s a hat. I absolutely love this company’s hats! I also got a super rad one with a tiger on it. It kind of reminds me of the sucky panther tattoos. These hats are the best.
