Champion Ventair Riding Hat Fades!! Anyone else with the same problem??

I am just writing to explain that the champion ventair hat fades a great deal after u have had it for a short while.  I wore mine about 4-5 days a week in rain/sun, after riding i always put it back into the nylon bag you get with it.  About 1 month after having it i noticed it was turning very slightly grey, i took no notice of this however as the months have went on the black has actually turned to a dull lookin red/pink.  Which doesnt look good when you are at competition whit dark black black boots and jacet.  Apart from this i am very happy with the hat as it is comfortable.  However i do find it quite expensive at just over 100 pounds ecspecially as it begins to fade after you wear it for the first month.

I would like anyone else who has had the same problem with either a black or navy champion hat to leave a comment and perhaps champion will create a spray to bring your hat back to its original colour!!

Thanks

hi,

yes I and many people at my yard have had the same problems, but we have noticed it is more noticable with the black hats rather than the navy ones

hey,

I have just typed in google ventair hat fading and i was led to this forum!!! 

I have now had two ventair hats, (the first one i had to take back within a few months of owning due to it fading) The shop changed it for me and gave me a replacement.

My second ventair hat is now doing the exact same thing.....not happy!!! I keep the hat in the little protective bag that comes with it and then i put the hat in a hat bag. I Only ride three times a week at the mo, due to uni work.

I love the fit of the hat, but it is really starting to annoy me, as other folk at the yard think i have now bought a brown hat!!!

Anyone else had this problem more recently??

Unfortunately everything fades which includes my navy blue puffa body warmer which is now a light powder blue, but never have had a hat go a funny colour but I don't spend that much or use a Jockey Skull Cap with cover and always losing the top pimple button on top as does everyone else on the yard.
