Re: Hat recommendations

Don't forget about Hat Savers or whatever they're called. Basically short cord with an aligator clip at one or both ends. Clip the hat to your shirt and you'll never need to use the Tilley warranty.

Besides buying the hat clips at west marine there are plenty of low-buck ways to make your own. Radio shack, or office depot should have everything you need...

Re: Hat recommendations

Tilley is, of course, "The One True Hat". But if you're looking for an alternative, Outdoor Research has some nice ones. I have one of their Sombrero models. Columbia, L.L. Bean and other companies have similar styles, but OR is the standard IMHO.

OR hat, high tech long sleeved shirt, zip off pants, and high tech sandals, yep, that's an American tourist.

Re: Hat recommendations

The original Tilley cotton duck hat floats and is guaranteed against loss and to last a lifetime. http://www.tilley.com/The-T3-Cotton-Duck-Hat.aspx

It's been so long, I can't remember when I got mine. It's been through the washing machine quite a few times and lasts a lot longer than any other hat I've used on the water.

Tilley also makes an eye patch. It's only $95, and it has a replacement guarantee and a little pocket to keep the instructions in it.

I agree with Outbound: choice of headgear depends on circumstances and conditions:











And for formal affairs:

Re: Hat recommendations

Tilleys are the gold standard, but more expensive. Since I donate at least one per season to Neptune's fresh water cousin, I opt for the less expensive imitation. Wide brim all around. A chin strap helps. I replaced the nice leather shoe lace that came standard with a longer length of paracord; long enough to clip the lower end of the chin strap into the top buckle of my PFD when the wind is really rocking.

Re: Hat recommendations

I have a 30 year old hat -- Banana Republic Safari Hat

Several things I like about it: a) wide, yet flexible brim b) thick fabric (warm in cold weather and in hot weather I dip it in the lake and keep it cool) c) came with a chin/neck strap.

One of the things I hav found in my later years... they don't make things they used to. I bought the hat for $12.. (which was a lot and I had to pay $2 in p&h), but I can get it on line now for $34....as a collectable...
