Re: Hat recommendations

I have one of those visors with green transparent plastic in the brim like the old ladies in Chinatown wear. It goes good with gray beards or tattoos.

Re: Hat recommendations

A Tilley-style will give your ears more protection than a boonie or kibbutznik, but any of those will do. There's a secret stash pocket in the top of a Tilley (great place to keep a couple of bills for the launch or lunch) and a piece of closed cell foam in there can ensure it floats very nicely.

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.

Re: Hat recommendations

Don't take this lightly - like I did before I developed a bunch of skin cancers. They cut on me again three days ago for yet another biopsy. Wear a good hat. Pay attention to sun exposure. Use top-notch sun screen. Do more sailing in the evenings.

These hats are approved by dermatologists. They're not expensive. I bought one of them to wear walking. I'm usually under the bimini when sailing.

Re: Hat recommendations

Hubs has a Tilley that is UV & BUG protected, with the neck shield. I have a Bronner bucket hat that is UV protected, with the neck shield.

These look interesting. How stiff are the brims? Do they buckle under moderate winds as most wide-brim hats do?

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Re: Hat recommendations

I am confident I would set the bar high here for skin cancer. Sad. Oh well . I am going sailing anyway. A bimini is planned. And screen is a daily thing for me sailing or not. Next MOHS is Wednesday .oh well. Thanks for all the input here. Doubt I will spring for a Twilley... Too prone to losing stuff. But ear and neck cover is essential. Thanks all. Oh and I wear a fishing shirt with the uv stuff init so aalways in long sleeves. Beyond all that I have an excellent dermatologist. I blame it all on my light skinned ancestors. I :-)
