My first Western Rise item! Can’t wait get more of your clothes!
The Versa Hat is truly versatile! It is perfect for travel, working in the woods and going for a run. It has become my go-to hat.
The versa is point blank the best hat I have owned. It’s extremely durable, easily washable, and the material is near perfect. The foam bill is structured enough, but still completely flexible and “foldable/pocketable/stuffable?” My only areas that I wish they would improve is mainly the “cut?” Or maybe it’s the length or “depth” in the hat… I have a fairly larger than normal hat size and when I wear the hat is looks “floppy” up too almost like an old man dad hat…. My wife hates it. In a sense, a bigger head like mine should be able to fill the hat so it can look smoother on my head almost like it’s a standard hat. Other similar hats are able to do this even with extremely floppy material because the depth of the hat is more shallow. I really don’t care enough to not wear it, because it’s the only hat that is comfortable enough for me to wear for 10-12 hours a day and durable enough to look almost new even after a year of daily use. I now have three, and will keep buying more if I need too… as long as my wife doesn’t threaten to leave me because of how it looks on my head. Floppy mess, but best hat ever. Also super bonus for the minimal Branding….
I really love the improvement!!! They obviously listened to my comments regarding the waist band. They finally made it stretchable!!! I like the improved material and fit. Good on ya Western Rise !!!
The hat is fine. Nothing special and quite expensive for what it is.
Hello Aaron, Thanks for reaching out to us at Western Rise and sending along your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you feel our Versa Hat is too expensive. There are a few reasons why our products cost what they do: Fabric - This is the number one cost for our products. We always start at the fabric level, and we source the highest quality fabrics available, to create each different style. Many of the fabrics we use are re-purposed from the outdoor industry and originally intended for use in everything from backpack liners to insulation layers. Some of our fabrics are also custom designed by us specifically for the products we create. All of our fabrics are also BlueSign approved and are manufactured with a sustainable model. Manufacturing - Having the best fabric is meaningless if you don't have manufacturing to match, so we take this just as seriously as our fabrics. We use multiple different manufacturing facilities around the world and this allows us to use the facility that can handle the particularity style the best, whether that be old-world, family-owned factories in Portugal, or high-tech laser cutting in Vietnam. Along with using the best factories for each of our pieces, all of our factories are socially and environmentally sustainable as well. They all pay living wages to their employees and provide safe working conditions as well as mitigate their environmental impact. Durability - Along with the fabric and our manufacturing, our products are also designed to be worn more, washed less, and last a very long time. Because the fabrics we use and our manufacturing techniques ensure that we have high-performing extremely durable products, one of our pieces can easily replace 2-3 similar pieces that you already have, which adds to their value. All of these factors do add to the cost of our products but the end result is a better constructed, better performing, and more sustainable (both environmentally and socially) product. Quality costs more but we believe that all Western Rise products provide quality and value that exceeds their price tag, making them all solid investments. With all that being said, our products are still competitively (and generally lower) priced than other companies' products of similar quality, construction, and performance. If you would like to know a bit more about our design philosophy, production methods, or our company in general, I do encourage you to check out the About Us section of our website or reach out with any questions. I hope this information is helpful and please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or if there is anything else we can help you with. Best,
