Press studs are usually plasticky, and break far too often.

I would (now that the opportunity has presented itself), remove them, and replace them with Velcro. Just cut Velcro to fit on the straps, and sew it on.

7 year old hat,the snap that fit broke 2 years ago. so 5 years isnt bad for it.

They are also called "press studs" - try that in your search string instead.
