This is the leather hat I got at ConQuest. I used the hat stretcher for about 6 hours, it was stretched out nicely but I suspect it'll shrink back without an extended stretch session and possibly some leather softener involved. I have the stretcher in another hat given to me years ago, a leather gambler style hat that is a touch snug. I'll see how much this one shrinks overnight and probably restretch it for a couple of days or longer on the next try. Getting a couple hat stretchers for storage is possible in the future.
