BULA BULA: Rippin' Rider Review
Reviewed by Rippin' Rider Jesse (108)
I have had my Bula hat for about 3 or 4 weeks now. I have worn it nearly everyday. It is a very soft, lightweight, warm and comfortable hat. I wear it to school, running errands with my mom and, of course, skiing. I love the idea of being able change the letters to make new words. I have worn it with the words "ski", "kids" and "sled" so far.
I wish the hat had a storage pocket or pouch in order to keep the extra letters with the hat when I am wearing it and in the off-season when it is stored away. I also recommend including two of the letters that are used most, like vowels and "s", "t" & "r". I would like to be able to spell "Jess" (my name), but there isn't a second "s" available. A slightly longer Velcro strip would be helpful so you could spell longer words.
I told a few of my friends on the school bus about the hat and showed them how it worked. They said it was "cool". They wondered if it was available in different colors. I didn't know the answer to that question.
I really like this hat because it "stays on" and doesn't make my head itch. It also happens to match very well with my black ski pants and white fleece pullover that I normally wear cross-country skiing. This hat should fit me for a couple more years and will probably be passed down to my little brother afterward. The black color makes it suitable for a boy or girl.
