Hats

What kind of hat does everyone wear? I just wear the typical baseball cap. Does anyone wear the big brim hats? Are they any better at keeping the sun off your face? Post Pics if you have them!

I used to wear just a baseball cap but last year switched to a big brimed hat. It made a world of difference. The baseball cap didn't allow air to flow over my head but the other did and kept me cooler. It also helps with the sun off the back of my neck.

I like a full brim wicker hat. Everyone makes fun of me and calls me gringo, but it's like having your own personal shade tree that follows you where ever you go. Really helps out on those hot sunny days.

Baseball style hat but, I prefer the brim hat. Only problem is I wear ear muffs and I can't wear them and a brim hat.

Notre Dame baseball cap, where it backwards to keep sun off my neck which usually burns worse than my face. Plus I wear worktunes earmuffs so I wouldn't be able to wear a brim hat.

I wear a desert camo bdu boonie cap. It has a 360 degree rim to help keep sun off face & neck. Also has a draw string for those WINDY days.

I want a brim hat but I didn't think about not being able to wear my Peltors. Guess I won't be getting one after all.
