Are you tired of your ol' hat blowing off in the wind? More than just an inconvenience, my hat blew off under horse, he sat back and pulled the hitching rail apart, hitting me in the head and breaking my neck, fracturing my nose and skull, and separating both shoulders. Needless to say I never wear a hat in the back country without a Stampede String now, for safety and convenience. Designed for durability and comfort. You can attach them under the sweat band with cotter pins we provide, or buy one with your new custom hat and we will install! These will last a lifetime, finished with leather tassels. We so our best to stock, 2-3 weeks production time, if we are out of stock.
