Hat recommendations
Being unfortunately a regular attender at my local dermatologist's office, I am curious what type of headgear folks are finding effective for keeping the sun off? Thanks.

A cheap old canvas wide brimmed hat. I can loose it 20 times over and it'll still be cheaper than a Tilley :)

I have tried several Tilly hats, and cotton duck with not too wide a brim seems best. Artificial fiber and/or a wide brim bend back in the wind.

Re: Hat recommendations
never being a fan of hats I wear cheap straw hats. They last 6 to 12 months before falling apart and float long enough to retrive them if they go over-board. you can also mold them into shape. The latest is one that was givin to me by 92 yr young Capt Jack at Boot Key.

Re: Hat recommendations
Does Tilley make a hat that floats?
