I like having the hat on walks & drop-ins because it instantly IDs me as a Rover dog-walker/sitter to anyone who might wonder what I’m doing at a house or apt. It crazy about the mesh, looks cheaper than the earlier non-mesh adjustable model available awhile back. Wore that one out til it faded badly. Wish more colors were available (tan/canvas, Rover green). A little pricey @ $25 but it does the job.
