Re: Stylish and effective sailing hat

A stylish and effective hat, eh? To my eyes the two qualities are just about mutually exclusive. I got one of these nicely discounted at a local boat show:

Amazon.com: Men's Outback Trading Company Leather Kodiak Hat: Clothing Amazon.com: Men's Outback Trading Company Leather Kodiak Hat: Clothing



It is a bit pricey but but it is rugged, waterproof, crushable, and shades my whole head. It simply laughs at the abuse I put it through. I had the local cobbler put in a couple of small grommets and threaded a leather thong through it to keep it on my head. Works great, except with foulies. I switch to a ballcap then.

Regards,

Tom
