Frogg Toggs Waterproof Breathable Boonie Hat

Frogg Toggs Boonie Hat is one of those deals that makes one ask why the big name brands charge so much for their products. This hat has kept me dry in heavy downpours and thunderstorms. The 3-inch brim is plenty wide to keep the rain and sun off my face and the back of my neck. The hat crushes down to a flat tortilla in the pack and comes right back into shape (with a few new wrinkles). It's more breathable than any other rain hat I've owned. It only weighs 2.5 ounces. And if I ruin it or lose it,… Full review

Kora Shola 230 Esker Hat

Beanie whose main unique feature is that it is made out of 100 percent yak wool. Very fine knit wool is less coarse than either of my merino wool beanies. Double layer knit wool cap fits snugly, is low profile, provides nice warmth, and wicks moisture really well. A very nice option for being active in cooler weather. After a discussion on Trailspace about Kora, a company that sells layers and other clothing made of yak wool, I decided to try out this hat. Frankly, I was hesitant about buying one… Full review

Norse Projects Lambswool Beanie

A simple stylish hat made from natural fibres which provide very effective, if somewhat itchy, insulation on cold days. I was a bit reluctant to buy a beanie made from lambswool as I remember from my days in the Fire and Rescue Service that wool is very itchy. However, in my determination to buy a garment made from natural fibres as opposed to oil-based ones I thought I'd take the risk. The hat is a good fit for me and l like the style. I mainly wear it with the bottom folded over but in milder… Full review

The North Face Horizon Ball Cap

An excellent hat that is lightweight, dries quickly, and is comfortable on my big noggin. Made of 70D nylon ripstop fabric, this hat is ideal for taking on the summer heat and can be worn for a multitude of high or low energy output activities. Conditions:I bought this hat in the spring of 2019 and have worn it regularly for six month since. It has quickly become my go-to hat, not only for outdoor activities like hiking and biking, but also for everyday casual wear.   Fit and Adjustability:I have… Full review

Tilley LTM2 Airflow Hat

Bought this hat in 2017, after a few too many friends had come down with skin cancer. I think we all started with baseball caps that only offered the bill protection, after being introduced to Boonie Hats in the service, they offer a lot more protection and used those for 30 years until some friends developed skin cancer of various degrees and started to get serious about. I looked at the Tilley and price seemed high but most good things are. I have used on fishing trips, backpacking, and bird hunting… Full review

Tilley LTM2 Airflow Hat

The Tilley LTM2 provides the most sun protection of any hat I have owned, is extremely durable, water resistant, and very light and comfortable. It is expensive, does heat up a bit (Airflo works to a certain extent), and the wide brim doesn't work that well in wind or with a bug net. I expect to be wearing this on sunny trips for many years to come, backed up by the excellent Tilley lifetime guarantee. My Scottish genes mean I burn easily so I can't begin to estimate the amount of sunscreen I have… Full review

Fjallraven Byron Hat Thin

A great looking hat made from natural fibre that is just that little bit thinner for when you need to warm your head without cooking it. Provides just the right amount of warmth and wicks well to keep you from feeling too clammy I have worn my Fjallraven Byron Thin at various times when the temperature has dropped but I am still active and working up a sweat. I run really hot so some hats are actually too warm and I soon feel hot and bothered. Not so with this hat. I can walk comfortably, attend… Full review
