Bought them to make Christmas presents, quality is better than I expected. I bought all black hats but the color is great. I have no doubts about using the washing machine to wash these hats as they feel as if they could handle it. I will continue to buy as the sizes are perfect, even the l/xl fits my husband who wears a size bigger and the youth hats fit my 3 year old son and my 7 year old daughter. I would recommend these hats to anyone. Usually spend 30-40 bucks on a hat at the mall because you know it will hold up, but these prices are great for that same kind of quality. I hate leaving reviews because usually there is a bad one for every good. I honestly feel like these hats are great quality for a great price. Ordered 8 of them and not one has a defect or loose thread.
