Named after the famous Patagonia peak, this trucker-style hat offers a mid-crown fit that works well on larger heads.
Here's the solution for helmet hair. You know, that slept-in look that your hair gets after you've climbed, mountain biked, snowboarded or any other activity that requires a helmet for safety. Pull on Patagonia's Fitz Roy Bear Trucker Hat, adjust the snaps in back to customize the fit and your helmet hair is quickly hidden and forgotten. You'll also pay homage to Fitz Roy, the mountain peak in Argentina that was the inspiration for the Patagonia company logo. The embroidered bear art by Lance Rea speaks volumes about your sense of style. Imported.
The crown, bill and headband on the Fitz Roy Bear Trucker Hat are made of 100% organic cotton canvas. Why does that matter? Farmers have been growing cotton without harmful chemicals for years with methods that support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water. Their yield is high, and the quality of the cotton they grow is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton. Why isn't all cotton grown organically then? Well organic farming is more time consuming, requires more knowledge and skill and (the kicker) costs more. But those of us who are committed to protecting our environment think it’s worth it.
The back four panels on the Fitz Roy Bear Trucker Hat are made of 100% polyester mesh that is fully recyclable with Patagonia's used garment recycling program. Although this hat should last you a long time, once it reaches the end of its useful life it can be recycled so it won't end up in a landfill or an incinerator.
