No, I've sent a couple e-mails with questions and never got a response.  I was gonna ask about his e-mail but I'm going senile and forgot....

Got a response from him two weeks ago so it's still current.

I sent him an e-mail and a FB message yesterday.  I have a couple buddy's who want hats and I want to get another one.

Give him time. He's pretty much a one man operation. There's a lot of guys on here ordering from him. Add to that the FB and EBay orders he gets.

 

He'll get back to you.

I'm just in the process of ordering another hat from him.  It takes a while, especially when he is traveling or otherwise busy, but once you get the order/funds in he ships fast and to my mind the hats are worth the wait.

Dave responded pretty quick.  I ordered yet another hat from him...  I sent him the funds right away and look forward to his new "Tri-Point" hats.  When I had a problem with another company who makes similar style boonie hats, I began the search for the perfect hat.  I ran across some reviews for these hats from Slangvel and took a chance.  I'm damn glad that I did as these are of the best quality.  AND, it's a Veteran owned business. 

 

The quality and fit are the best.  If I had to find one negative about them, it would only be to suggest an additional row of strapping (for lack of a betters description) along the crown for a total of two.  This would better aid in attaching vegetation to the hats.  Other than that, these things are awesome!

Just wanted to drop a line that these boonies are phenomenal. Having a 8" hat size I've never had a boonie that didn't give me a headache until I bought a MC one from Dave back in May 2010. It's still rocking strong but now I'm ready to get a few other colors/patterns and maybe some mesh....

 

Dave, what is your current stock of fabric colors?

Can you post a FB link, I'm having a shitty time with auto correct on FB.

I paid for hats on 8/29 and received them 9/10.  They would have been here sooner but I had issues with my spam folder and didn't get a email from Slangvel for several days.  Once that was straightened out, the hats were on their way very quickly.  

I just got my M43 Tropic Multicam hat this afternoon. I think total time was maybe a week?

 

Very well made hat. That being said, the M43 style just doesn't look right on my noggin.

 

So, if anyone is looking for an M43 in tropic multicam, I'm putting mine up for sale for $37 shipped CONUS (which is what I paid for it).

Fellow Lightfighters, I will be not be able to make any custom recce boonie hats for about 2 weeks, I have a family emergency, need to go be with my daughter in Arizona, she had a cancer operation several months ago, thought it was gone, but looks like a possibility its back in her adrenal glands with the kidneys, I pray that it is not.  Thanks for the support in the past and understanding.    Dave

Family is everything.  I hope she recovers fast!

  Ditto.   I have a giant peach as well and dave's boonie is the best and most comfy hat I have ever had.   

 

Prayers out out to your daughter, Dave.   

 

Salngvel...worth the wait.

Brother Slangvel... Thoughts out to your daughter, as well as you and your family.
Please keep us advised... I'm not one for prayers and such but I know we can generate a hell of a prayer circle here on LF when it is needed.

What Tac450 said, except I came around to the prayer thing a lot more when the HH6 got cancer. I'll be streaming good vibes and prayers on a behalf of your daughter (who happens to be the same age as mine).

I want to thank everyone for their support for my daughter, Mayo Clinic wants to operate in May.

 

If anyone needs a hat,let me know I will be undergoing shoulder surgery in 2 weeks and will be out of action for awhile.  Have a bad rotator cuff tear, not sure if they can repair it or just replace the shoulder.

Good luck to both of you. Prayers will continue to go out.

I've been falling so long it's like gravity's gone & I'm just floating...

Not only is Slangvel a stud when it comes to tailoring, but he's also a pretty cool dude who has turned out to be a big help to me on a project.  He's done as much for the veteran community as anyone I've met, and I've met a lot of dudes.

 

Had my short-brimmed woodland BDU boonie (AKA the MARSOC Raider RECCE, with requested modified brim) within a few days of the order.  Perfect work.  HH6 grabbed it out of my hand and modeled it - looks better on her than me, so we'll have to do a couple/few more here soon for her and the kiddo.
