Shapeshifter Shapable Stiff Brim Sunhat

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2017-06-29

Protect yourself from the harsh summer sun with the Shapeshifter Shapable Stiff Brim Sunhat. Superior to any other hat you’ve seen, this one ticks all the boxes. The Shapeshifter uses high-quality wire throughout the brim so you can shape and reshape the brim as you need. No matter the conditions (heavy wind, rain, etc.), the size-adjustable hat retains its shape. You can also shape the hat to be out of your way when needed. In addition, the Shapeshifter also features a removable crown. Simply unzip to take it off. It’s perfect for those wanting some extra sun or to protect your hair. The Shapeshifter features a built-in sweatband as well as side mesh for extra ventilation. The waterproof design also sports a built-in back cape. It conceals itself inside the hat and is ready when you need it. The Shapeshifter folds up easily for effortless storage and is even machine washable.

Just wanted to say that I’ve worn my Shape Flexer many times when we go out for walks and other than being the teensiest but tight, it’s amazing. The wide brim keeps me shaded and cool and the flexible brim keeps up in the wind (not to mention any random shapes I would like to make with it). My fiancé is more of a baseball cap guy but I think I’m converting him over to the flexer side of the force. Excellent job Damien - thank-you for your tireless efforts as our mad hatter.

@Albert,
Totally agree!

Review from Kickstarter
I don't understand the complaints. A quality hat with a brim that holds it's shape is not going to be feather light.
I bought this to wear in the sun. I wanted a "wide" brim for shade I need it to hold it's shape.
This is a quality product with quality materials.
Both my wife and I love the hats and they do what was promised.

I received my hats. One is a l/do as ordered however the charcoal hat is a s/m. The bag it was packed in has a l/do sticker in it but the hat has a s/m tag . How do we correct this? Thanks

I like the large brim, but the hat is way too heavy and ends up smashing my ears,. Can't really use it as that hurts quite a bit.

I was looking into hiking to the Bridge to Nowhere and found someone wearing the Shape Flexer: https://www.google.com/maps/@34.2824509,-117.7482187,3a,75y,295.35h,64t/am=t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sAF1QipNoFbc1zu7Bb8hfGp-Hh_z4r0Q0nNKkdCYjsVjc!2e10!3e11!7i2508!8i1254 I've taken it to many hikes and enjoyed every minute using it. I hope this to be my first and last sunhat I'll use for most of my life.

You can't make everyone happy, but great that you try to do it. Most are realy happy with your product and we love our hats. Thank you

@David Sander. I'm sorry the zipper jammed on you. You're the first person who has made that claim. If your zipper is defective, I'll be happy to exchange it for one with a working zipper. As for the size, the point of the hat was to have a WIDE brim. You received the widest brimmed sunhat on the market, AND IN A XXL/XXXL. So, it IS a WIDE one. I always had the specifications and measurements (including brim width) on my campaign page, and I never was out to deceive anyone. Please email me at damien@shapeflexer.com if you're interested in an exchange. I certainly want to keep all my backers happy. :)

Got my hat. Zipper on top of hat gets jammed really easily. I’m afraid to use it again. It’s more like a sombrero... really big around. Too big for me. I’m not impressed.

Hat received in Sweden. Great quality Damien. Thank you for your hard work, honest and frequent updates. I will be looking to expand my collection. If you consider either the strong yellow colour or the purple - you'll definitely sell 1 or 2 to me. Best regards.

My wife & I received our hats today & we love them!! They fit perfect and certainly do not weigh too much as a few others had stated. They both look and feel great! Thank you Damien for an awesome kickstarter experience, you were top notch all the way!!!!!

It may have been a wait, but was worth it, great hat.

Review from Kickstarter
Got mine in Germany and it looks great. Works as advertised and I like the neck protection. But the brim is wider than expected. Just wider than every other hat I own. But I really like the color of mine. Great Job Damien, I like it!

Damien, Got it today....it’s a quality product you brought to the world. to me it’s on heavy side! If it’s without the zip and brim material get lighter and lighter material used will be perfect! Looking forward for version 2.0

Review from Kickstarter
Got my charcoal hat last week in DFW! I love it so far! My size was right on the border of S/M and L/XL and I went with the S/M based on some feedback I had read. It is about as snug as it can be without crossing the line of being uncomfortable so I think I made the right choice. Kinda of wish I would have bought a 2nd one!

Review from Kickstarter
Received the hats I ordered today, and in my opinion, they were definitely worth the wait to make sure they were correct. These are awesome, and I am looking forward to fully testing them on my vacation in June. Huzzah, and Thank you!

Review from Kickstarter
My apologies to Damien and everyone for making an incorrect comment a couple of weeks ago about Damien not checking the comments. In my tired and sick haze I translated the thought of "it's better to email him than post a comment for a question/concern" turned into "he doesn't read comments."

Review from Kickstarter
Got my two L/XL hats in the mail today, one in original adventure mix and one in dark gray, & they are awesome! Great quality, perfect fit when cord is pulled tight, and it slacks enough to wear with a knit cap underneath. The brim is large, as others have stated, but I don’t think it is heavy to wear at all. Well done, Damien!

Review from Kickstarter
Mine came in the mail today. The quality is better than I could have hoped for, this product shows that it's creator went the extra mile to get it right. Great job, thank you!
Meagan Duneman
Review from Kickstarter
I received my hats last week and the S/M fit pretty much just right, possibly a little snug, my L/XL (that I intend to use a beanie with in winter) fits a little large (without a beanie, so it should fit just right with a beanie). Overall I am happy with both of them. I gave my S/M a light test run when I did a litter pick-up. It was a little breezy and trucks were going by and the hat hardly moved. Some people have mentioned the weight and it is definitely heaver than my both my old Columbia hats, but those have a narrower brim and fly off really easy even when tightened, I know the wider brim of the Shape flexer will be great in bright sun and the weight is part of the reason it is more resistant to the wind. The hat is a little less compressible than my usual hat so I will probably use it for planned sun-exposure and keep my old hat in my purse for the unplanned sun exposure.

just got my hat,first time i had one that fit my fat head.extremely happy with product but not so with the "made in china".i would have paid more money to have it "made in usa" even having it made in vietnam or myanmar would be better than giving more money to china

Hello I received hats but one of them came in the wrong color
Ro Naval Bautista
Review from Kickstarter
Just got my hats! I'm backer #3145 from Southern California...I didn't think I would like the hats to be honest... I don't... I freaking LOVE them! They are well made... If you haven't received your hats yet, be patient... you'll love them.
I have heard of complaints of the hat being too heavy. Really? Do you have a bobblehead for a head? This hat is freaking washable and the wire around the brim is fantastic! I dare you to do that to more expensive hats! This sucker is bad ass! I'm so glad I got two! This is not heavy... at least not to me. But you're entitled to how you feel!
I'll buy it off of you! (provided it's the right size...hehe)
Damien... I know you were given grief for how long this might have taken...But thank you man!! I can't wait for future iterations of the Shape Flexer! You done GOOD!!

I really like my hat but like some others one that I ordered came in the wrong size--hopefully Damien can make it right!

Just got my two hats. They look very well made. I did have one problem thou. On the package it says L/XL but when I opened it the tag on the hat said S/M. I ordered to L/XL how do I get the one hat in the size I ordered? The other hat is just right. I really like it. Holly Wymore

Review from Kickstarter
Soooo,
went to the post office to pick up a parcel today. From the shape of it, I could already guess that it had to be my Shape Flexer.
When I left the post office with the parcel, it had startet raining cats and dogs. So I ripped the package open and put the hat to it's very first test.
It maybe looked a little funny, wearing your shaper to my office clothes, but the hat did it's job just perfectly.
Thanks!

@Timothy Giles - Yes! Well, half yes. There's no yellow on the horizon (no pun intended), but I WILL be offering a very cool "Royal Purple"! As of now, I think they'll be available by mid July, even though the website is slated to launch in the beginning of July. I wanted to give the Ladies a choice that was a little more "fun" and a little less "earthy".
Timothy Giles
Review from Kickstarter
Damien. Do you have any plans for producing the purple colour or the yellow colour in future?

Charcoal hat received in Australia today. Fit was perfect and hat looks great. Will need to wait for the weekend to really give it a tryout.
Brandon Porterfield
Review from Kickstarter
I ordered 3 hats, one for me and two friends. We each got a different color: adventure, khaki, and charcoal. They arrived Yesterday in Japan.
DAMIEN! You have outdone yourself!!
The colors are amazing and all have their own charm (SOOO glad you changed the band on the Khaki to the similar color instead of black).
The wire inside the brim is strong and very sturdy, it really holds the shape well.
The hat does have some heft, but that is obviously due to the high quality and not a problem! This hat lived up to everything I expected and more. Already got people asking where I got it and I'm gonna point them to you. @Chris Yeagy,
It was a design change late in the game due to the manufacturing process - changing the images on this page wouldn't matter. If that is enough to make you not like it you are really picky (but to each their own).
