When fishing and hunting I often wear a Stetson Mountain Sky hat, very comfortable, keeps the sun out of your eyes, but in windy conditions, it can get blown off quite easily.
I often try to wear it in my garden, orchard, food forest, fields… and if too windy well it just does not hang on tight enough.
I need a good wide brim hat, that will stay in place, be comfortable, perhaps have a way to secure on extra windy days, not too hot, keep the sun off my face, neck… probably 3.5-4" minimum brim.
I am part of the generation that put on nothing…or perhaps baby oil, and coppertone when going to the beach… in my kid years… instead of sun block… well because there was no sun block back then.
I have a history of basil cell skin cancer spots… that so far have all been resolved by my Derm Doc, with ease… well some pain for me, but easy for her. She would like for me to wear sun block all the time, but I hate that stuff and sorry but I am just not going to do that. The large majority of my problem areas would be covered well by a nice wide brim hat. I will do that.
Ok… A good HAT should be all of that above and sort of look COOL too
Do you know of any that fit that description well ?
Ok… even if not COOL looking, I might still buy one, if it does the job well.
