Close-Out-Hats are discontinued styles remaining from some of our earliest production batches. They are not defective but we consider them inferior to our more recent stock of folding hats. Only when you compare new and old side by side would you notice that pouch zippers are more robust, brim wires are not as stiff, fabric quality is thicker and new stock includes a plastic neck keeper.
We are posting the last of these stocks here for anyone that might still be interested in them. They are discontinued and being liquidated "AS IS" without warranty and exempt from return.
