I have the dallas bark cowboy hat and I’m curious if water(lots of rain) will ruin it. I’m going to Peru next week and think it might be the perfect hat to keep the high altitude sun off, but I don’t want to ruin it in the rain. Also, I presume I shouldn’t squish this hat, right?
I would not worry about the rain. If it soaks water, let it dry naturally in the shape you like. Hav Give it a good brushing with stiff nylon bristle brush to take out any spots. 120 grit sandpaper used lightly also works if spots are stubborn. And no, I would not quish the Dallas.
Have a good trip
