Content Blooper #6: Crashable Hat

It's a great hat, I just wish that I could crush it.


During these dreary winter months, it’s easy to get a little distracted at the office. For example: I’ve been planning a vacation for myself. Somewhere outside the Pacific Northwest. Somewhere sunny. And since I don’t like wearing sunglasses (those unfortunate tan lines!), I think I’ll buy myself a hat.

Ideally, I’d like a hat with a large brim for maximum protection from the sun, but I still need to be able to fit it in my suitcase so I can pack light. A hat made out of a soft material would be great, because I could squish it into a smaller space without damaging it.

The above hat looks like an excellent candidate: made of felt, wide-brimmed, and that western style with the leather strap and silver buckle is a look that could really work for me. And now that I look at it, it seems like it could be crushed into itself and lay flat in my carry-on. But alas, there is no indication that this is a crushable hat.

In fact, according to the content, this hat’s only special feature aside from its gun-slingin’ style is that it’s crashable. Crashable? Who ever heard of a crashable hat? And are you even allowed to say “crash” on an airplane? I guess I’ll just keep looking.

Let's work together.
