Purchased this with a whole bunch of other bike stuff so shipping cost was not an issue. I appreciate Bike Nashbar's sale items even though they are probably for enticing you to buy more stuff (which I would have bought anyway) :)
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The hat is fine, the fit is fine, but it must be handled and shipped by elves. Lightweight, very lightweight, hat...and it costs more to ship than the prodcut? You could probably fit it in a standard envelope with a few stamps. It's definitely a bargain bin price for an easy cycling hat...but why not grab it in a physical bin at the store and save $8 in shipping?
