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 a pretty sweet hat. I got mine for golf but wear it all over the place now. It's very low key and casual and doesn't make you look like a walking billboard. The best part is that it is very comfortable. The band that goes around your head is elastic so you are able to pull on the bill of the cap and stretch it away from your head when you are wearing it. It fits just snug enough to stay on. The brim is nice and large and keeps the sun out of your eyes.

Love this hat! Thanks to the other reviewers who recommended to go down one size. My medium in black fits perfectly. The black is a 'lil darker than what's pictured, but I'm sure it will fade a bit in do time.

Great standard baseball cap without all the massive obvious branding. Color looks nice and worn in from the start.

Nice hat. Fits like a well worn glove right out of the box. Cool wearing for hot weather. Size might run just a little large.If you run between sizes i.e. 7 3/8-7 1/2 go with the smaller size it will fit perfectly.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great hat. Was looking for a plain fitted hat for my husband. One he could wear that looked more put together than the freebies he works in. This one fit the bill. Best part is it looks fitted but has a bit of elastic in the band for comfort and a bit of give.

I ordered this product one month ago. I ordered the size large for my uncle because some of the caps he has (from other brands) fit him tightly. But the size large on this product was very wide and ended up too big for him. Other than that, the quality is good.

I ordered this hat in the smallest size they provide and it was huge, really not a uni-sex hat and not adjustable. Unless you have a large head size and enjoy boy looking hats (which is not a bad thing in my view) you will be disappointed. Although I did find the hat to be well made. I ordered a Roxy instead and I love it. It is a true boy hat made especially for a girl with mesh on the back side for better air circulation. I love my new Roxy, I sent this one back thanks to Zappos most awesome return policies and superior customer service. Thanks Zappos, you are always my go to place for cute everything not easily found at my local stores.

Love this hat. I have a large head and normally hats don't fit me well. I will say this hat was the exception. One of the most comfortable hats I own. I will say it runs big so if your between sizes go for the smaller one.

I love this hat! I bought several last year and finally have all the colors. Great construction, durable and fits well. I have a difficult time finding hats that fit and look good but this hat does both. This is absolutely the best cap I have purchased. My only suggestion is to add more colors!

First of all, fast delivery and because my head size doesn't fall in the category of "one-size fits all" the fit, color and fabric are all first class.

I got this for vacation at the lake, and just wanted a plain hat. It does the trick. Sits low on your head, might be an issue depending on where your ears are. Wish it were a bit cheaper...hence 4 stars.
