Men's Fitz Roy Tarpon LoPro Trucker Hat
Crown & Bill: 100% Organic Cotton Canvas
Back Crown: 100% Polyester Mesh
Named after the famous Patagonia peak, this trucker-style hat features a low profile crown that fits most people except those who have larger head sizes.
If you have a larger head, this hat might look too small on your head. For everyone else, Patagonia's Fitz Roy Tarpon LoPro Trucker Hat is a versatile size that fits closer for many people. This hat is the perfect 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 it on, 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 tarpon art speaks volumes about your sense of style. Imported.
The crown, bill and headband on the Fitz Roy Tarpon LoPro 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 Tarpon LoPro 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.
