The Straw surf hat should probably also get a mention for its breath-ability and wider Brim - but they arent particularly durable or pack-able

And the bigger the brim - the less transportable they get

I think shame is what keeps alot of blokes from wearing the the right hat.

I remember taking some footage of a mate and he whipped his hat off - I asked him why? (after the event), and he said it was too daggy - then he wore a baseball cap for the rest of the trip so he would look cool in photos - even though the wide brim hat offered better protection

I've always worn a broad brimmed hat, like in pic #2. A couple of years back I found a Columbia one that has mesh between the top and the brim. Its amazing how much cooler it is on a hot day and your hair stops you getting burnt in the mesh area.

Yeah when you think about the sun protection provided by Base-ball caps - It seems crazy that they are even considered a good hat for sun protection.

They're good for shading your polaroids so you can spot fish - but they leave so many other bits of the head exposed

Yeah I've tried the columbia ones - theyre great for packing in a bag - super comfy and light weight but but the model I bought didnt have the widest brim -

It wasnt until I tried the cricket hat that I saw the benefits of having a good portion of my shoulders covered as well - but even the cricket hat isnt wide enough for my liking - I think I need a packable Sombrero

Might go searching for the widest brim cricket hat there is

When I know I will be standing in direct sun I use an old Berkley wide brim straw hat that I have had for a number of years. What I particularly like about it is the brim turns down a little all the way round keeping the sun off but allowing any breeze to pass through. Not a fashion statement ... but then again it just might be . Regards HBt.

Definitely no photos of me donning the monstrosity. Im just a little bit more rugged looking than the guy from amazon though.

Yeah I was going through a straw hat a summer for a while before I started looking for something you could shove in a bag
