I live in the mountains, and gusty winds can blow a hat right off your head. Had quite a search to find this item that I knew existed, but once I found it, my cap retainer has lived on my hat, so it's always available. Just bought one for each of my hiking buddies.
One of my all-time smartest and best purchases.
Summer's just begun. First days out on the boat...Already saved one $60 hat.
I bought several of the Cap-retainers many years ago (at a Gander Mountain, I think). Ever since that time, one has been on my sun cap (with a very wide brim) ; and has preserved it for me so many times. I’ve given several away, when people have commented on how great mine was.
They’ve also kept grandchildren’s sweaters and jackets from falling off and getting lost; and kept my canvas bags together on outings, as well as lots of other uses. That’s why I just bought a bunch more. They are made well; and are so handy to have around!
