My 20-year-old sun hat, made by a company called Rohan, is at the end of its life, being very frayed, faded and tatty. Consequently, I'm now looking for a replacement, hopefully better than the Rohan veteran, which has a few weaknesses. These include that it's in a "bucket" style, which means it partly obscures my vision while not offering brilliant protection from the sun. However, it is very tough, easy to carry when not being worn and doesn't catch on my rucksack when I'm out on the hills. A wide brimmed hat I've had for a few years does give better sun protection, but gets in the way and is more awkward to pack away. I also own a cap with a neck flap, but find that the latter tends to make my neck feel very hot. I was thinking that a boonie hat might be a reasonable compromise, offering decent protection while being compact, and was wondering if any B&B members have any recommendations for headwear of this sort. I would prefer models available in plain colours, or with fairly subtle patterns, since I don't aspire to the soldier of fortune look, which an any case isn't popular here in the UK. I'm aware that many models available in the US won't be easy to get hold of here, but suggestions would at least giver me a starting point. I look forward to reading your tips.
