Pretty color (I purchased the raspberry), soft knit, and very comfortable to wear. I put it on immediately after it was delivered and I don’t want to take it off. Nicely warm, and soft against the skin. It does have a bit of a peak at the crown but hopefully that will flatten out. The label says that this was made in the USA. Definitely has the USA high quality. If you are looking for a warm and comfortable cap, especially if you have very short hair (or no hair at all), think of trying this one. It is just about perfect.
After I ordered this beanie for my son I read some of the reviews and was concerned about it being a knock off. It came today and it is a Carhartt for sure. The tag on the front was correct. The tag on the inside said made in the USA and also had tags on it with USA. I don't know about the fit because it is a Christmas present. It looks the same size as the blue one he has, made in Canada, so I am sure it will be fit. I ordered it from Amazon, not a third party seller.
I've owned 2 of these beanies for the last 10 years and they are still in good shape. Ordered 2 more of the new color. These are one of the few beanies that are large enough to fit over my head. The 2 that I ordered (black/white & Brown/Sandstone) are labeled Made in the USA on the inside tag. Some other colors are made in Canada which is equally as good. Great price for quality like this.
Carhartt Men's Acrylic Watch Hat in Dark Brown, thats the one that got away for me, folks. It would have fit great on my mellon, kept my head and ears warm. I would have been Made in the USA or maybe Canada. It would have matched my Brown American Giant Classic Zip Hoodie just right. I would have had a special place to put it next to my Carhartt Men's Acrylic Watch Hat in Black, Carhartt Men's Acrylic Watch Hat in Heather Grey, and Carhartt Men's Acrylic Watch Hat in Breen, which, sadly, seems to be discontinued. Sometimes, when I would want to sleep, but it was too bright in the room or outdoors, I would have slipped it over my eyes and had a nap. It would have been great.
But I never received Carhartt Men's Acrylic Watch Hat in Dark Brown. I ordered it and it was on its way, but then, suddenly, it was gone. Cancelled. No explanation, no Dear John letter, no warning. Just...gone. Now I only have it haunting me in my dreams, trapped in future-perfect tense. A faint glimpse into a life with my Carhartt Men's Acrylic Watch Hat in Dark Brown that will never be.
One day, Carhartt Men's Acrylic Watch Hat in Dark Brown, we will meet again. In this life or the next.
It's been a tradition to get this Carhartt cap every year. Yes, sometimes the quality is hit or miss, but I buy multiple colors at a time and don't have a problem with most of them. The standard black hat quality seems to have gone downhill however - material too loose and thin. Many have complained about fakes - i suggest you buy it directly from amazon and not the 3rd party sellers. Overall, great quality hat for the most part. The ones i have received are either made in Canada or the USA.
This is a good, warm hat. It is not scratchy, and is, in fact, soft and comfortable. I needed to replace my old Watch Hat that I lost recently, and this hat was a last-minute purchase before I traveled to upstate New York last weekend where it was cold and snowing. The hat is basic, but Carhartt does basic well. This and my Schott Bothers pea coat are going to be my cold-weather uniform for the foreseeable future. Like the coat, this hat is made in the USA. That is almost as important to me as the article of clothing doing its job well.
The only other thing I will write is that I have not had the hat long, so I do not know how it will stand up over time (washings, rain, snow, etc.), and I have not been out with it on a particularly wet night. Pure wool is scratchy and uncomfortable, but it can still provide warmth when soaked. I will have to see if the acrylic version holds up the same way. For the time I have had it though, this hat has done a fine job.
Good when there's not any wind, but as soon as the wind gets above 10-15mph and temps drop below freezing, any part of my head not also covered by hair and my ears get cold, almost painfully after a while. This is despite the hat being fairly heavy material. Kind of a shame since I know a lot of people who swear by Carhartt.
Since there seems to be some discussion in the reviews about the legitimacy of some of these hats, I'm sure the one I received is genuine. It was sold and shipped directly by Amazon and had several Made In The USA tags on it, with no signs it was made elsewhere.
This acrylic watch hat (cap) has plenty of material to cover one's head and neck. The hat (cap) is offered in bright pastel, and muted colors. The acrylic cap seems to fend off stiff winds and below zero wind chills. Hats offer enough material so that you can turn the opening upward to offer further protection from the elements. I purchased 3 colorful hats for the winters here in Chicago. Thumbs up on these hats!! I certainly would recommend these hats.
love the carhartt stocking hats. warm, soft, made in USA. they do crawl all over my head throughout the work day though. the carhartt logo usually ends up on the back of my head.....i think that's just me though. all other hats do the same...except they don't feel as good as these doing it!
