I have purchased hats that are similar to this in the past form Homedepot. I was disappointed that the new model is of cheaper quality. Did the purchasing agent from Home Depot not look at the quality, or was it the case that it was no big deal to the agent. I find it frustrating that the quality of many of the products in several of the Home Depot departments continues to decline. I also find it extremely frustrating that many of the associates in the stores know virtually nothing about the products the sell. They will look it up on their hand held devices, but they know nothing about it. I was told by one of the store associates that the management thinks that because they can access a product on their electronic box, that will suffice.
