Re: Hat recommendations

I really hate hats!

But, I’ve also become a regular at the dermatologist’s and have had one trip to the plastic surgeon and our boat has no bimini, so……….

I now wear a full-brim hat, usually 100% cotton - - - whatever’s on sale at whatever store I happen to be in. I have a somewhat fat head, so I normally try to buy at least one hat in advance of actually needing it.

My current hat is a Dorfman Pacific Co., from West Marine (I think). I have gotten a little too red a few times with sun leaking through the mesh side panels.

I also have a Columbia Sportswear OMNI-SHIELD that I bought at one of those hat stores at an outlet mall. It’s a tad warm and not much good on really windy days because of the brim folding up.

When I was working, I frequently travelled to India and would always pick up a couple of cricket hats.

I agree with CHAMONIX’s suggestion about dipping the crown of a cotton hat in water on really hot days.
