I ordered this cap to ultimately replace one that I have almost worn out. Poor thing's almost on it's last legs and I wanted to have a back up waiting in the wings for the day I have to "retire" the old one. It's my favorite cap and I really don't want to have to do without it. I've worn it almost every day for quite a few years, but alas it's days are numbered. Thanks for building such a great cap, Stormy Kromer!
