Hat Review: Union Jack

Hello! Pbjms here with another hat review. After a nice little weekend long vacation, I guess I must have missed another BLOXcon - this time held in London, England. With the BLOXcon of course came some England themed hats, one of them being the Union Jack;

Union Jack
Mesh: 10/10

This hat's mesh has the normal top hat look to it, a bottom base with a larger "top" part sticking out from it. It looks great on your ROBLOXian's character. The bottom base is bent, along with the very top of the hat. All together, it looks very nice, and goes great with tons of hats, including headphones and shades. The mesh defiantly deserves the 10/10

Texture: 8/10

The texture really isn't the best. The main hat is a darker shade of blue, and an England flag is just plopped on the center of the larger top area. At the bottom of the flag looks like an orange/brown stain that is really ugly. The hat itself looks really plain, and rushed. The shadows near the center of the base part really aren't enough to make the texture pop. Some design of flags on the top hat (similar to hats like this) would make the hat a lot more appealing. I'm giving it a 8/10.

Price: 7/10

The worst part about most okay looking hats is usually the price. Once again, ROBLOX overpriced an item, making this 500 Robux500 Robux is a lot for members without builders club, but not that expensive for builders club members. It's not severely expensive, but with the unappealing texture, it really isn't worth it. 

Compared to... (6/10)

Phoenix (Better)

Phoenix is a gear made about a year ago, it flies around you shooting fire at your enemies. It is very powerful, and worth the robux a lot more than Union Jack.

Telamon's Other Chicken Suit (Better)
Telamon's Other Chicken Suit
Telamon's Other Chicken Suit is a great looking hat made for LOL Day (July 7th, 7/07, LOL upside-down). It looks amazing and goes great with most hats, once again worth the robux more than Union Jack.

Skeleton (Better)
Skeleton is a Halloween package made a few years ago in 2010. It's great for a Halloween costume, and great for role-playing. It is worth the robux, thus better than Union Jack.

Overall: 8/10

Overall, Union Jack is an okay hat. It has a great mesh, though a poor texture. It's price is a bit more than I would expect it to be (about 250 Robux). Compared to other items priced at the same price, it is probably one of the worst. This is really not worth your money, unless you have tons of it.
