LRH caps - Tell me your thoughts

For years you guys have asked for caps and t-shirts. T-shirts (and window stickers) are going well. Now it is time to work on a cap selection.

I want it to be of the highest quality and for its color, style, etc. to meet the needs of the majority. Pricing is unknown at this time but would be similar to what other sites might charge for this same quality level.

From earlier discussions with individual members I am zeroing in on the following but want to run it by a larger audience today:
  • Choice of 2 colors, khaki (tan) and black
  • Medium height profile
  • Rear leather strap
  • Rear brass buckle and tuck-in thingy

Some like a structured crown and some like an non-structured crown (soft or stiff). So maybe the khaki color would be non-structured and the black color would be structured. It isn't cost effective to offer both structure choices in both color choices. And the inventory gets to be prohibitive, too.

But, regardless of the above, I would like to hear your thoughts. As much as possible I want to follow your wishes.

Here is what the above could look like:

    I think they look great Len!!!

    Well coming from a guy who gets alot of caps given to him from various vendors. I counted I am up the 18 for this year.

    I do like the velcro strap also. Some of the brass buckle one's I have will loosen up, and in ND the wind never blows so you will be chasing your favorite hat down.

    Here is a picture of the ones our corp. made up for us for deer rifle season.
    This one is from Falkirk, but ours are the same. Ever plan a Blaze orange?

    I really like the design (especially shape/contour of the black one) , but I'd also prefer the Velcro strap. I'd buy it either way though.

    Nice! I really like the black one. Is the top stiff (stands up on its own) or soft? I like the soft ones for my bald head

    That is called "structured or non-structured".

    I prefer non-structured, too. We'll see how many agree. Maybe one color in structured and the other color non-structured?

    Hi Len, the hats look great! However I have to agree that I definately prefer the velcro strap over the brass buckle strap. As for Structured or Non- structured I am indifferent.

    Len,

    I like the design as shown... I would personally lean towards tan/khaki & unstructured, but I'd also like to say that I think a blaze orange version might be nice... what better way to promote 'our' sport than when in the field!
