Perfect Winter Cap
Only had my waterproof cap a few days and had a few compliments, as a cabbie getting in & out in wet weather it is ideal. Love it 👍

Bad Cut
This was more like a flat cap. There was insufficient fabric in the crown to accommodate my hair, and allow a sideways tilt. Not a bit like the ones I have bought in the past. Opening the snap fasteners produced a somewhat "stormtrooper" vibe - horrible shape.
Customer Services
Good afternoon,
We are sorry you are not happy with the cap. Please note that all styles vary from one another, which also means that not all crowns with have the same depth. You may wish to have a look at our big apple caps, which have an oversized crown and may be closer to what you are after.
Best regards,
The Village Hats Team

Nice One!
First one was a tad on the tight side so sent it back, no problems and got next size up within days, excellent service! New one is just fine and it can roll up so it fits in my pocket when out. Just what the doctor ordered.

Great Cap
Bought as a replacement for a far more expensive one that got lost. This one's way more comfortable and excellent value.

Perfect Fit, Perfect Service
I'm not a big hat wearer and was hesitant about ordering online in case the fit was wrong. But the price was tempting and the sizing advice on the website helped a lot. In the event the fit was spot on, so one more happy customer.

A great cap to carry in case of bad weather.
This cap arrived just in time for a week of typical Finnish spring weather a combination of rain, snow and wind. It was fantastic, kept my head warm and dry as well as keeping a lot of the worst of the weather off my glasses. Well worth having for any month your not expecting loads of sunshine.

Excellent winter/wet weather hat
I have bought a few Jaxon hats as gifts but this was the first for me. A fantastic rainy day hat, particularly if you wear glasses. Great quality, even better price and much envied by many other dog walkers.

Impeccable quality hat for those rainy days.
I have bought both the black and brown version of this cap. Both are consistent in their fit. I wear glasses and the peak keeps them dry. Village Hats are an excellent company with service to match. I even had a telephone call to a ask if I would be agreeable to pack multiple purchases in one box. Outstanding!

Very comfortable hat!
This was my second purchase from H and C and their service is truly outstanding. This 8-Panel Newsboy cap, is beautifully made, extremely lightweight, meaning you forget you have it on and it's waterproof with a nice quilted lining. Fantastic hat and an even better service, Thanks guys!
