Excellent hat! I am very picky about my hats and this one fit and looks perfect. I like the simplistic design and the quality of the materials used. I never wore a fitted hat before so this was a new experience and a joyful one. I get comments on it all the time about where I got it.

If you are expecting this to be a nice true to size low profile fitted cap, you will be very disappointed as I was. I don't know who Gooring Bros. used as measurements for their caps but its not even close. The small (6 7/8-7) per their specifications is huge and dopey looking. Way too much material that makes the hat sit down over your ears.

This is an excellent fitted hat. I ordered the XL for my large dome and it fit perfectly. It's a stylish, no-nonsense ball-cap and is trimmed with a small embroidered tag on the bill. The bill come pre-curved and the a-flex fitting makes for a perfect fit. The construction is also very good and I expect to wear this cap for a long time to come.

Brands I'd also recommend: Kangol, Ben Sherman

I ordered this hat to wear while I run at the gym, help keep the sweat from my eyes. I ended up buying a different hat for the gym. I love the way this fits and looks. It fits my big head rather well. I hate when hats feel small and do not cover the side of my head very well. I do not have the issue with this hat. I love it.

This is a very well made & comfortable cap, in classic baseball-cap style. That said, it's seriously oversized. I have a 31 1/2 inch head circumference, which is considered extra large by all cap manufacturers. But I read the comments by other buyers, and ordered a large (7 3/8), but on delivery this was still slightly oversized, although improved by the headband inserts that Goorin supplied. I expect (hope) it will shrink slightly on washing, since it's 97% cotton. Prospective buyers should be aware of this issue.

These hats run larger than expected so get the size under your normal fit. It's an okay hat for the style but I'm not a raving fan. I prefer my hats tight on my head vs floppy, and this one has a bit more material in the cap which makes it floppy.

Goorin Slayer caps are great. I purchased the black and dark green (they show it as a lighter color). Fits great with a little stretch to ensure a comfortable fit. The crown is supported by thin cardboard to keep its shape. Looks and feels good. I have an XL head which is hard to shop for.

For those who subscribe to the less-is-more credo, this one is for you. Solid construction and a stretchy headband make it a go-to that will last. Runs a little large so err to smaller if you're not sure.

As a woman in a nontraditional field, I tend to take a fair amount of ribbing about my job. But we still need things that work. I spend my day in houses that have been foreclosed, repossessed and resold. I measure flooring for a living. Cutesy wouldn't last an hour. I have a big head and hate velcro. The "Slayer" is perfect. It also has a big enough brim to support a five light brim clip when I'm in a house with no electricity. It's one of the few 7'5/8" hats I've ever owned without an adjustment on the back. It fits well, and although I've only had it a couple of weeks, it takes a beating and wears well. Thanks for a great product.

This is my first Goorin hat; it will not be my last one. I have a big head and the XL fit great. I ended up buying all colors in this style.

Finally found a hat with the visor that fits my big head. I wear a 7 1/2 and the Large is a perfect fit. It's structured perfectly.

Perfect - I have a rather large cabeza and often have difficulty finding a hat that fits 'right'. This was comfortable and fit perfectly out of the box. Definitely runs a little on the larger size, but in a very good way. Might buy another in a different color.

A well made, good looking hat. Looks exactly as pictured and fits comfortably on my big head. I like the slightly faded/worn look and the side-brim logo gives it a classy touch.

Great hat! Sits nicely on the head and my hubby loves it. Keep in mind that there are no back adjustments; just elastic. We got a medium and it was fine. The visor is shaped great. Didn't need much tweaking. Have fun!

Okay...we finally gave up. After ordering and loving the first hat, we ordered 2 more size meds. Both were too big. So we exchanged them for the size small. One was okay but not much different...but the other had a messed up brim and the manufacturing seemed poorer. Don't know what this company is going through but we will find hats elsewhere. Maybe they are designed for really big heads?

My husband has two of these hats so far, both medium, both fit his head nicely. I decided to order the other two colors, and of course, I ordered them in medium. Both of the hats came and were too large. There was too much extra material at the top of the head area. I was really surprised and am going to return them and try small this time. Hopefully the brim size will not be affected but I have no idea why there was so much extra material at the top of the hat unless there was a badly sewn group? I will let you know how the others end up.

Always wanted a quality cap that fit well and didn't have a logo. Well this is it. Fits great and looks great. No leather or plastic to adjust the size, but there is stretch to the material that provides a good fit.

I bought two of these hats in the same size, one black and one olive. The weird thing is they fit very differently and seem like they were made from different patterns. The olive one fits perfectly. The black one is taller than the olive one and when I pull it down far enough so my head fills up the hat, the brim hits my ears. I don't know why they would be so different. I'd give my olive one a 5 star review and the black one a 4 star review, if I could.

The hat fits well and my wife says it looks good on me. I like the color and fabric. The only downside is that it's not adjustable and doesn't expand and contract well. So I can't tighten it up during fierce winds to keep it on better.

This hat is exactly what I was looking for. It is low-profile and doesn't turn you into a walking billboard. Also seems to be quality material. I wore it once in the shower to form it to my head a bit more. I'd agree with the other reviews that say order a size down than your normal flex fit size. Usually I'm a L/XL and I ordered a M/L and it fits great.

SUPER nice hat. My husband (37 years old) loved it. Very well made & comfortable. Neautral color shade looks good with pretty much anything. As stated in other reviews, it runs quite large. My husband typically wears a M-L. I bought this hat in a M the first time but had to return it for a Small. Overall, great find.
