How about Tolman Skiff hats?
« on: January 04, 2010, 08:20:27 PM »
Five years ago I bought a hat from Oiseau Bay Resort, an off-the-grid rustic place with a few cabins down the river from our camp.  This is a high quality, waxed cotton (oilskin) hat that is waterproof and wears like iron.

Now that the stickers are finished, I'm thinking I'd love to have a Tolman Skiff hat like this one.  These hats are two-toned with a brown brim and green body, and the red, yellow and blue Tolman logo embroidered onto them would look great.

I tracked down the guy who made these for Oiseau Bay, and he quoted about $18.00 per hat plus 5% general sales tax and 8% provincial sales tax if I order at least a dozen.  With shipping and handling, they'd be between $25 and $30 apiece.  That's a lot for a hat, but these are rugged, seaworthy hats.

Counting one for me and one I'll give to Renn, I'd need ten more people interested to make the minimum quantity.  Any takers out there?

These are perfect hats. I own several oilskin type from Filson ($30+) and they wear like iron and are water proof, especially with a coat of epoxy.

I would be delighted to have a couple of "Tolman" versions.

Hell I can always use another hat... specially a Tolman cap... I'll put it right up there next to the one I bought from SteveOh.
Does it come all crusty and and gnarly like the one in the pic? Are these actually Filsons? That would be cool!
Put me down for one.  Hey it's a cult thing... so my friends say  :o
