Field Hat

Postby Elix » Sun, Jul 10 2011, 01:10 PM

Looking for some headgear that'll protect my ears and neck, but not sure where to shop. I can order online once I know what I like and want. But I need to try styles on plus get an idea what size I need. Any suggestions?

Got mine from Gander Mountain. Any outdoor/hunting store would be a good start.

That's funny, we happened to be near a Gander Mountain and stopped in. Got me something that'll work just fine. =)

Pics please (or a link to the catalog)! I'm sunburned from flying today without a hat despite my SPF 30 sunblock.

Didn't see it on the web site, probly in-store only. This one was about 30 bucks. It has a leather strap for on-the-back carrying and is plenty wide to provide cover to my ears and neck. For cooling, it has mesh around the head which might lead to a sunburn on a day with too much sunshine, but it also allows me to walk in reverse easier. :jester:
