I Received my Garrison Raider today in rabbit; general Raider's look with no turn. I am very happy with it and it fits great. I will try to get some pics and a review up in a day or two. Turn around time was just about five weeks. Thanks Garrison Hatters!

Would love to see some pics if you have some.

I'm looking forward to a couple pics as well, particularly of the guts, if you don't mind taking requests. I haven't an Indy hat in a rabbit now, and Garrison's prices look very reasonable.

Here's some of the details on mine- received a few months ago. The band is a little wrinkled because I put some foam behind it to make the fit a little more snug.

Pretty nice, man!
What's that sweat band made of? Would you care to compare it to another hat, or would you say it's its own thing?

The sweat band is some kind of real soft leather. I'd love to compare it to another hat, but alas it's my only one!

Sorry for the thread hijack, Jedi. Looking forward to seeing your new lid!

Over the weekend I got to examine neutronbomb's AB fedora a bit. My first impression was how similar it felt to my Garrison Raiders--thick and "doughy"--the major difference being that the AB had a smoother surface. My experience with fedoras is very limited, but I have to say that the Garrison felt compared quite favorably. Just my non-expert, off-the-cuff opinion. :)
