A hat for every head on 10/09/2012 15:47:01 MDT Print View

Too many options. For me, I like a fairly wide brim. I think the fishing/bucket style hat is perfect. It's a little hard to find i Nylon, but Cabella's has a great Goretex model for $19.95., INc. has the out-in-the-wild nylon bucket hat for $15, and looks great too. Patagonia makes a few nylon/poly bucket hats that are a few dollars more. I also like the Tilley. It's a nice, cool, light hat with good sun protection. I don't think like Ken T. that it's too grandpa. I think it's more nerdy like the pith helmet. I feel like a total dork anywhere but the backcountry in it. That said, I won't wear convertible pants around town either, but that's just me, clothes for the field and clothes for the town, always in running shoes though.
