I received my "The Contender" hat in December from Conquest Hockey and it did not disappoint AT ALL !!. I am hockey skills and skating coach and spent a month in Australia teaching Australians the game of hockey during the month of January 2019. Record setting heat temperatures. close to +50 degrees C at times. This hat mastered the heat and the sweat, and the best part is that it NEVER showed the sweat stains that most hats do. I sweat constantly while on I was on the ice and definitely sweat during our off ice programs in the extreme heat. The hat was soaked after every session. Yes the hat smelled after a day of sweating (because sweat does smell), but all I did was rinse it under hot water in the shower and or the sink (never used any soap) and the hat would come out clean and it did not smell. I honestly would be washing it everyday. The hat protected my head from the elements as it has the UV protection. My next hat is a The Contender hat and so will the next. Great product coming from a great company, with a great message. Enjoy this hat everyone.

I always tend to get bad sweat marks and a hot head in most hats. The sweatband inside helps reduce that, and the holes in the back make it breathable. My favorite hat so far
