How to pack a hat

Dec. 22nd, 2014

I have had many a travel experience during which I attempted to pack a hat in my suitcase. Upon arrival I always found my poor hat squashed to oblivion. To mitigate the issue, I decided to wear all my hats stacked up on my head on the plane to avoid the inevitable broken brim. My record is four hats at one time. My hats were intact; my pride however…not so much 🙂

A solution to all our hat-travel worries!
