Pretty obvious what I consider the best hat,,,,,,,,,,,, not me of course, am uglier,,,,

I’ve never understood the open weave hats like some in this thread, but I’m trying to protect my head, ears, neck from the sun when I wear a hat. I used to be a Tilley advocate, and any wide brim

I pulled the trigger on the Shelta Seahawk (recommended in this thread) my wife is HORRIFIED by how dorky it looks - so I’m pretty sure it’s now my favorite hat.   I chipped around for a few hours i

This thread rocks! I got mild sun sickness after a long round last week (while wearing spf 50 no less). I seem to get zapped once or twice a year and wind up with a pounding headache after the round despite hydrating and wearing spf 50. I was planning on switching from a ball cap to a wide brim style hat as a result, many good recommendations here!

SPF only helps with sun damage to the skin, but not with avoiding heat-related exhaustion or worse. That is a whole body issue. Hat helps, but more look to hydration or to clothing or towels that cool with evaporation. Don’t forget electrolytes when hydration.

I just bought these electrolyte packets called liquid iv from Costco, I'm going to give that a try. The cooling towels are a good tip. I'm trying to be smarter about it.

I'm half considering the rash guard/under armour type fisherman's shirts as well, bit I don't know if that would help or hurt w the heat?

Would be interested to hear your experience with the liquid IV. I've heard of them in use for other sports applications. Summer golf in AZ gets HOT! Electrolyte replacement is crucial.

I've been making my own electrolyte concoction for a while. Played in 112° yesterday and this seemed to keep me mostly balanced. I still have calf and toe cramps though come night time.

1 gallon drinking water
4 T honey
2 T apple cider vinegar
2 T Morton's lite salt (see sodium and potassium)

I've always been just a flat brim cap kinda guy until all this cancer talk! 😱

Seriously though, it's been on my list for a while now to start being a lot safer under the sun. I was, and still am that guy that never wears sunscreen because I don't burn. That's the first thing to change this year. I've been thinking about moving to a bucket hat for a bit more protection. I wanted to try the Greg Norman, but I do not think I can pull that off. 🤣

Here are a couple pics I took yesterday of the Melin hat. These hats are more expensive because of the materials used to make them, and it’s turning-out to be well worth the price!

FYI, they make normal 6 panel caps too. This hat is in the Hydro series that’s built to take sweat, and water. Here’s the link

I pulled the trigger on the Shelta Seahawk (recommended in this thread) my wife is HORRIFIED by how dorky it looks - so I’m pretty sure it’s now my favorite hat.

 

I chipped around for a few hours in 85* weather and the brim has made a big difference for my pasty skin. I think I’m going to do an unofficial review on it!

If SWMBO doesn’t approve then it’s probably what you want
It looks like it will work great and keep the effects of the sun off your head, ears.

I have bought two of the Magellan long sleeve fisherman shirts at academy. They are 30 spf/upf. They are moisture wicking, so you don’t have a soaking wet shirt during your round. I dont feel hotter in them, but playing in long sleeves took some getting used to.

In case anyone is looking for some deals, Outlandusa has Tilley Hats on sale here: https://www.outlandusa.com/m/tilley/shop?sort=best

I picked up a Grey Tilley Paddler for myself.

Also really like this nike dry-fit bucket dri-fit-golf-bucket-hat-mCXDhR.jpg

 

Yup, I have this same hat and it's excellent in the heat. Love the fabric as it feels like it's going to be much easier to soak out salt stains than a normal hat.


I also really like the baseball cap version as well. Found them on nordstrom rack for sub $20

I found that hat in Academy Sports on Saturday for $20.00. Played in it today and it was really comfortable.
