Burning Hats

I’ve discovered that the best way to fix your hats after a hard week of sun, dust and being crushed in the back of a u-haul trailer under a cooler and three bikes is to take a shower with it. In fact the best way to deal with playa dust on coats, backpacks and other assorted accoutrements is to take a shower with them on. I mean you just spent a week naked in the desert, might as well spend a few minutes fully clothed in the shower – right?

An additional benefit to showering with your burn hats on is that you can reshape them perfectly to the contours of your noggin, ensuring a perfect fit every time.
