I've been wearing a safari style hat on the golf course for the past 5 years or so. My ears just can't take the sun.

Don't have a photo of wearing a baseball type hat this past Monday because of it being a tournament and my foursome was a sponsored Veteran group so felt wearing one of the organization hats would be more appreciated than my Stick & Hack club full brim hat (don't know who coined "bucket" hat because it is not a good term for what is closer to a Boonie hat I wore in uniform deployed in Iraq).  Despite using SPF50 aloe was my best friend for the rest of the night.  If sun is any issue, there is no better option than shade and taking it with you between other sources of shade is not an option.

I just need a 55 gallon drum hat for my humongous head.  I hate trying to put on baseball caps cause they never fit unless it is fitted for my head and not one with straps.🎩

So I'll be looking for the guy with the ginormous head... got it 😆.

I needed a hat the size of a 55 gal drum with a built in A/C the last two days. I played both days here in Ga. with temps around 96-97 along with this crazy humidity.

I played early Monday and it was fine. I played late Wednesday and it was HOT here in GA. I usually walk my home course, but Wednesday I took a cart. I figured out last year 90 degrees is my limit for walking. I wet my hat when I could and it helps keep me cool.

As a fashion statement no,

 

... I am starting to see a lot of high school players, especially girls wearing sun hats and it is indeed a fashion statement perched on top of their heads and they look really good. Times they are achangin'.

I'm a golfer, about to hit the 40's, out of shape... you think I care about fashion? 😄

 

... I like to look nice was much as the next guy but pay little attention to fashion. Take pants alone in the last 60 years and cuffs were in, then out, then back in, then out again, and back in and now they are out.  I guess I just don't understand how something can look good and then not look good and then look good again. It's almost like clothing manufacturers just want you to buy new stuff. 🤑

Tips of my ears sunburn quickly so once the UV index starts getting into my danger zone I use bucket hats.  Mostly use a Field and Stream hat from the fishing section at Dick's; in high heat I use a Mission Cooling bucket hat.

Personally I really Like the Titleist Aussie hats and have worn them for a number of years with good results.  The white ones do get a little dirty, but I just spray a little shout on them and put them in the top of the dishwasher and as they say, "shout it away".  Place them on a towel and let them dry.  Have them in grey, khaki, white/blue, white/aqua, white/black.  Picked up two of the new Charleston Aussie hats from this years line which are much lighter white/black and white/grey.  They also fit those who have a larger head better than the regular Aussie hats.  Here in Charleston, SC the heat index is already hitting over 110 these are a must.  Makes my dermatologist very happy and me too.  Here are the new ones I recently picked up.

I bought a couple of "bucket" hats and, unless they're vented, I find them much too hot. I found a "boonie/bucket" hat and it's well ventilated and very comfortable. If anyone out there knows of a good quality vented bucket hat please let me know where you got it/them.

When it's real hot I use the Imperial Watershed hat, $50, because you can wet it down under a faucet and it stays cool for quite a while. Just add water every 5-6 holes. It's great. When It's not that hot I use a Palmer hat. Check Fanatics as they usually have them on sale after a PGA/USGA/PGA Tour event. They are around $35. Neither are Spaulding hats! LOL!

I picked this one up on Amazon a while back, Einskey Sun Hat. They have an adjustable elastic cord around the headband so it is easy to get a custom fit. They are $16.99 today, I think I paid $24.  Lots of colors available, I went with the color shown below since lighter equals cooler.  I like it for keeping the sun off my ears and neck.  The vents are nice, but nothing will fix the humidity here in Georgia!  I wore it Thursday for league golf.  I give it 👍 👍 for the functionally and price.

I loved my Boonie hats! I had to toss my last one I had from the early 80's. I think I still have a pair of OG-107s that I was issued!  The odds of me ever fitting in them is astronomically small! 

Thank you for your service,  Easy!

I’ve contemplated this as well. The larger brim almost seems like a necessity on the hot sunny days. I look at them almost every time I’m in a sporting goods store but have yet to find one that tickles my fancy. 

I have used a hat from Dorfman for years. It is a heavy canvas fedora hat. The entire hat including the brim is stiff enough that it doesn't droop nor get in the way even in the wind. It protects my ears and neck as well as my face and eyes. The stiff brim is wider than on a bucket hat.

I also live in AZ. Love buckets during the summer. Mine has cooling mesh above the brim built in which I have found to be a necessity to get the heat dissipated from the top of the head. Can throw in to a cooler of ice water and really keeps the head cool. I don't give much thought to fashion.

... Exactly. I never really understood the appeal of bucket hats. Brim is too short to protect your skin or shield your eyes from the sun. But sun hats with wide brims are an absolute necessity in very sunny and hot locations. If I am in bright sunlight with temps above 100 and I remove my hat to wipe my brow, it seems instantly about 10* hotter since it works like a mini umbrella. 

Bucket hats are good in the rain. Me I wear the wide brim floppy ones like you have in your avatar. I have been using them since a friend of mine got skin cancer. From what some say my chances are nill on skin cancer since I am Native American heritage and have somewhat dark skin and still have a full head of long thick dark hair. I am not taking chances. I have came to relish them and today I am rocking my wide brimmed straw Tabasco Hat. LOL it has my exact feelings on life in general on the back of the band as in "Bite Me". It goes along with my persona of long hair shades and a cigar and I have came to relish it. Besides do not tell my wife the ladies love it!!!

... With virtually everyday full sun and hot here in Phoenix, I went down a rabbit hole and have 10 sun hats  🤪  (2 still have tags on them). Once I found the Walter Hagen hats in white and light gray with a very wide brim that you see in my avatar, I stoped using the others. When winter rolls around and temps get back in the 60/70's I will wear the darker colored sun hats again.

Exactly--- LOL one of my course owners gets on my butt since I wear a couple with my old course logo. They have some in the Pro Shop in black and dark blue. I told him the other day who in the heck wants to wear a dark hat when it is 100* outside. Plus mine have the chin strap which you need here in the wind and theirs don't
