When the opportunity to review an official Mortal Kombat hat arose to coincide with the newest release, I knew I had to jump on the opportunity, and boy I am glad I did.
I was impressed with the packaging the hat came in. While it is sdmittedly tough to screw up packaging for a hat, the team behind these game tie-in accessories made sure to not screw up the formula.
A simple sticker adorned the flat brim and a simple tag hung from the back. The hat came wrapped in plastic, but I think it is important to note that if you saw this hat in a store, there would be no plastic. For my purposes, though, I was happy to see the wrapping.
I should begin by pointing out that I am not, traditionally, a huge fan of flat-brimmed hats. I think this might be the one to change my mind, though.
The deep red embroidery really pops against the black of the hat. thThis continues past the main logo, and is true of the “Finish Him!!!” on the side of the hat, near the snaps.
Speaking of snaps, the hat is a snapback. I usually like fitted hats, in cases like this, the snap is perfect. With a quick adjustment, it felt like I was wearing a hat built for my head.
It might seem clear by this point, but I really don’t have a bad thing to say about this hat. In the week I have spent wearing it, it has not shown any tendency toward collapse.
The hat is firm, strong and sturdy. Its black-and-red color scheme makes it perfect for people who might be initially put off by the flat brim like I was.
This hat is perfect for fans of classic and contemporary Mortal Kombat alike. The simple, yet sturdy, construction make for a versatile hat, as long as you aren’t put off by a flat brim. The only way these hats would be better is if they came fitted to my head instead of in a snapback.
