It's interesting, that hat isn't available locally for me. I thought about getting two to just keep aboard, in case guests needed one.

Re: Hat recommendations

My Sunday Afternoons hat just arrived and I have high hopes that I've finally found what I've been pining for. I bought their Offshore Water Hat, which has a wide stiff brim, excellent all-round sun protection, water resistance and side venting. It floats (apparently) and has a large secure chin strap. So thanks for the suggestions Seaduction.

Aesthetically I think the hat looks pretty goofy. I'll be sticking with my hip-looking Tilley while on shore, but I think this new one just may be the perfect sailing hat -- at least for me

Re: Hat recommendations

Practical Sailor reviews some hats in the August 2013 issue.

They like Sunday Afternoons and Tilley hats
