    MOA Hat

    Ok, so nothing major here, but I kept looking for a good spot for the MOA patch that comes with a membership. Today I found a great patagonia hat - very comfortable, clip / adjustable sizing, and very lightweight.

    I took off the Patagonia Ironworks patch and replaced it with the MOA patch - came out great. Maybe MOA should consider this hat as an option.

    You mean they don't already have a hat?

    Your "sew to a hat" beats my option of using sewing glue to attach it to my codura nylon Klim Jacket. It (the patch) is somewhere in a ditch between Havre and Kalispell MT if anyone wants to go look for it.

    What patch? I received nothing when I renewed, except a new card..they said they'd send a sticker, at least, but no dice. Oh, well, I still have the old logos and patches...

    My head is around a 7 5/8 size, so typical baseball caps look like kids hats. I also like to have quick adjustment - loose for just hanging around, tight when I'm on a boat. The patagonia has a very nice plastic clip with a strap tightener. I'm headed to Africa this week - will be interesting to see if anyone there recognizes MOA. Hardly anyone does in West Michigan.

    Rhonda just got some of the MOA merchandise back online this morning. Only a few items at the moment, but she is working to get more merchandise online and available. There is a black version available as well.

    MOA Hat;

    I bought one in Salem this year and already nearly destroyed it. Fit is nice, color I like in grey, but dirt is attracted to it big time. My GSA life and my camping all the time, the hat is so dirty, just got ugly! Of course some in GSA world would consider this a positive. Me, I like my hat relatively clean looking. I don't know if anything is possible to keep hats decent looking, but its an idea interesting to me. I found washing hats usually kills them. Somebody needs to make a washable hat OR one that repells dirt better. Randy
