Now I can't decide if I want the broader-brimmed LT6 or LT5. I definitely want the breathable or mesh version. If the "breathable" version is really breathable, then this seems the winner b/c it would repel more water than the mesh version.
Difference in weight aside, my concern with the larger LT6 is that it will obstruct my vision or flop around in the wind. My current hat, an REI Sahara Outback (I think), does this. When the wind blows, the front brim flops in front of my eyes, which is very annoying.
