When the lovely & charming Mrs. Gerlach gently suggested I might find a better
use for my $80 than a Smokey, I went an Army surplus store & bought a
"Campain" brand hat - $24, minus a 10% Scout discount. Even after adding the
BSA band & windcord, I got off at almost half off. It looks great, & has held
up fine under regular wear with only a modicum of care - rain cover & hat
press. A Scout is thrifty.
