Official 5 Panels/ Camp Caps Thread

Hey guys,

This is part of our July drop. Check them out! 
More to come later on at lotsofspirit.com

Cheers,

LOS boys.
cool hats but.. "lots of spirit" is just a little too fruity for me to wear on my head :-/
Not only that but.. they are all leather straps.
leather straps and you just instantly say no? Some of my best hats have leather straps... and @sjknight413 the RipnDip ships worldwide, the store he found them on, active ride doesnt. Obviously RipnDip does though, they are out of LA, a big international distribution hub as well as being an established company now too.

Personally I don't like the leatherstraps when they're fixed with
rivets. It pushes into the back of my head or into the forehead when wearing the caps
backwards. Unfortunately many nice caps have that kinda straps.

About the Rip N Dip, you're right, that's what I meant to say.

Leather straps suck, they dig into your head as described above. End of discussion.

Leather straps look the nicest though, almost all my 5 panels have the synthetic type of nylon & plastic clasp, and while they are comfortable, i dont think they look that nice

Leather straps dig into your head? Just loosen it up a bit...

Not end of discussion really since people are talking about it still... I have had a couple dig into my head yes, but I have had twice as many not atall dig in. My RipnDip Aztec in the burnt orange has a perfect adjuster, my only woolrich has a great strap, 1 of the 2 ripndip vivians I got had an amazing strap too, my decades Mallard camp has a great leather strap too. Sometimes you need to buy 2 to make sure 1 of them fits really comfortable, but you should never count a hat out just because of something like a leather strap. These straps were all riveted too I'm pretty sure so that doesnt mean anything really if I can't feel them on mine, they recede into the sweatband, which protects them from touching my head anyway I would want to wear my hat. I have never worn a camp cap backwards either and think they look ridiculous backwards so the problem of the forehead I don't see as a problem for probably 75-90% of camp cap wearers (just a guess though, do more of you wear them backwards?).

This is mostly opinion though, as is everything on here. I'm just trying to show that stating it has a leather strap so you aren't interested in it is a ridiculous statement.

For sure! My Discrete and Two Faced both have leather straps and they are two of the comfiest hats I own! Plus I love the little bit extra weight they bring to the cap. Don't hate on the leather!

I've got camps with leather straps that dig into my head and some that don't, too. I had the problem only on camps with a metal clasp which you put the strap trough. The ones with a buckle in the middle are no problem and look way better, than the other ones! The LoS-hats look nice and I'm thinking about buying one and if I like a hat that much I would buy it if it has a strap of the other kind, but possibly I think about it twice.

I don't have a camp cap resell website to defend. No paragraphs from me.
July 18, 2013 @ 00:18:18
IMO leather straps suck... Lots of spirt has some dope prints but every hat IS leather strapped.
July 18, 2013 @ 00:42:06
Does anyone have problems with their hats front panel being too big? Anyone know companies who tend to have smaller panels?
July 18, 2013 @ 00:49:02
but you do have a resell instagram that also calls out people for having fakes... and notice only 1 of the camps on the site was mentioned. not defending anything, just saying close-minded people need to start to have an open mind and just because they get 1 bad item with something wrong with it doesnt mean every 1 of that type of hat is like that

i agree with most of the stuff you said, i however wear a few of my camp caps backwards, some of them look really weird, and some of them look pretty good, for example i have a nylon softbill supreme camp and it looks retarded backwards, but my general public supply co camp, although not that great a hat overall, looks great backwards

Any stiff material 5 panel looks good backwards in my opinion. Its when the material above the strap collapses that it looks back.
July 18, 2013 @ 13:22:10
^^^ that makes sense, thanks for the input. i'll still probably never do it myself but respect to you guys who do

yeah i would say the decades too. their hats are just overall smaller. i have an averaged sized head and their camps arent even close to fitting me.

I laugh at any brand with "hype" in it's name. It's almost seems sarcastic how unoriginal it sounds.

Any fit picks or reviews of Lots of Spirit Hat co?

I also just got my Decades hats in from their recent release..

They are really well made! Look great, fit great, feel great. The only thing is they are now made in china too, I always like knowing I am buying from companies who make theirs in the U.S because then the money circulation is staying in the country and replenishing our economy, even if at such a minuscule level.
