The Hunter B hat by Resistol is a part of the "Bison Collection". This collection of Resistol hats are very affordable and durable the blend of furs make this hat water resistant. Whether out for a ride or out for a night on the town you will be looking good in this hat. The ribbon hat band adds a finishing touch for a great classy hat. The X's in the style of the hat determine the quality of the hat. Bison hats are made with a bison fur blend. The percentage of bison is determined by the X quality, but the exact percentages are known only to Resistol, as it is the key secret that keeps Resistol a leading manufacturer of headwear.

Care: Use a soft brush, starting at the left side of the hat, and brush it counterclockwise toward the back of the hat and around again. If your hat gets wet, simply shake off the excess water. If it's a fur felt, you need to turn down the "self-conforming" leather sweatband and stand the hat on the sweatband so it can dry naturally. Never rest your hat on its brim as this could cause it to lose its shape. Store your hat upside down, on its crown, on a clean surface or in a box.

    Comments about Resistol Hats Resistol Hunter B 4X Fur Felt Hat:

    This hat will be used while outdoors, working around the house, general day to day wear. It has my preferred "Old West" style appearance and is lightweight but rugged. I am in between a size 7 1/4 and 7 3/8. My head measures 23 1/8 inches. I have a "wide oval" head shape. This hat comes in a "regular oval". I e-mailed the manufacturer for sizing advice and they recommended ordering a size 7 3/8. It fits perfectly. My ONLY complaint is that all photos I've seen of this hat appear to show a flatter, less upturned brim. The hat I purchased has a significant upturn to the brim sides compared to the photos, but not as much as many other hats one sees (if my description makes sense). Even with this small complaint the hat still has the "Old West" appearance that I prefer.

    Print The Resistol hat company was founded in 1927 producing fur felt hats using the finest furs and leathers. Known for their quality and craftsmanship far and wide, Resistol hats have been worn by everyone from rodeo champions, politicians and celebrities to working hands on ranches across the US. So whether it's a night on the town or a ride into one, know that you'll look your best wearing a Resistol.

    In the early 1920's a young millionaire, E.R. Byer sold his business in Michigan and traveled South to further his fortune and investment. His investment was a brilliant young hat maker, Harry Rolnick, who was operating a small hat factory. E.R. Byer was one of Rolnick's customers and was so impressed by his professionalism, flair for fashion and devotion to quality that in 1927 the firm of Byer-Rolnick was founded in Dallas, Texas. The company produced men's felt hats in Western and Dress stylings, both were marketed under the newly created brand name "Resistol Hats," meaning to resist- all weather. rodeo champions, politicians and celebrities to working hands on ranches across the US. So whether it's a night on the town or a ride into one, know that you'll look your best wearing a Resistol.

    Distribution was limited to Texas and Oklahoma early on, but innovations like the Self-Conforming band and Kitten Finish (an innovation in the finishing process of felt) gained national exposure and in 1938 prompted expansion to a larger facility in Garland, Texas, where Resistol hats are manufactured today.

    Byer-Rolnick's success continued and the Resistol brand became the greatest name in western hats. In an effort to better control the quality and flow of product, Byer-Rolnick acquired a fur cutting plant and built a rough-body plant in Longview, Texas. These acquisitions made Byer-Rolnick the first and only manufacturer to operate the entire felt hat making process, which includes over 200 processes. By operating all phases of production, Byer- Rolnick was able to obtain maximum quality control and thereby produce the most consistent and finest hat known the world over.

    Demand for Resistol hats continued and today "the small hat factory" is the largest manufacturer of headwear in the world, as a part of Hatco, Inc. All phases of production are still operated and controlled to ensure product of the highest quality.
