Bucket Hats

I always my Tilly or my wide brim Panama hat on the course during the summer.   I can drench the Tilly in cold water and then wear it, whereas the Panama couldn't handle all the water.  But it does have a really nice brim that keeps the sun off and is great when there's a nice sea breeze.

My two cents worth. When my doctor of 25 years told me to start wearing a wide brim hat to slow down the cancer spots, i complied. That hits home. Everyone should where them. Sun screen helps some, but no sun is better. i wear my Titleist and Nike Wide brim hats all the time outside, even when i'm not golfing.

to those that think you look dorky, i say, rather look dorky than be dead.

I have several different brands and models. I want to get some like the Titleist bucket worn by Will Zatoris's caddie. They could sell a lot of them.

Seen too many guys with skin cancer on tops of their ears cuz baseball cap doesn’t cover them. I used to wear Hogan / Kangol style hats, but ear skin cancer changed my mind & love my Ping bucket. I like the look of the Titleist bucket too.

Joel dahmen playing good this weekend had to be good for the bucket hat business. I have an Aussie style hat that I wear every know and then. Brim is a touch to big and it hits my arms from time to time with my swings

I never played in a bucket hat. But you guys are making valid points and I think I'm going to try one. I do have a question although this may sound stupid but......... What do you do with those annoying strings that some of the hats have? I don't think I would like anything hanging down or cinching anything up to my chin.

When the wind is blowing, I have to cinch it, or it blows off.  You get used to it.  Even if it doesn't blow off, I am always thinking it will during my swing... not a good idea.

If no wind, they just go into the hat before I put it on.

I usually place it on the back side of my head, running down my back. Now that I've heard @Kenny B mention stuffing it into the hat, I'll have to try that.

I take them off. If it's really windy I wear a baseball hat. The brim on a bucket hat is like one big wing in the wind.

I put them inside the hat when it isn't windy enough to cause the brim to flip up.  My hat has a cinching band around the headband to make it fit snugly enough to stay put in all but the most aggressive gusts.  I tried down the back but that is just too annoying for me.

I do the same.  If I wear a wide brimmed hat, and the wind suddenly comes up, I swap the hat for a baseball type hat.

I have a couple of Tilley bucket hats with the strings that can easily be stuffed anywhere.  My favorite sun hat is a Dorfman Pacific Soaker hat that I keep wet the entire round; it doesn't have strings, but they have models that do.

My dermatologist would usually mention skin protection on just about every visit and said the wide brim was better than regular baseball style hats.  Skin cancer is such a prevalent topic in today's world but he said the topic is not something new and suggested I look up old photos of American railroad workers. 

It was an eye opener.

The chin strap can go in back, cinched up in back, cinched up under chin(tight or loosely), or, tucked inside the hat. Loosely under my chin doesn't seem to bother me, but, I only do that when it is windy, otherwise, the strap is in back, or, tucked into the hat.

There are sun hats with a detachable chin strap.

Living in Key West, we get a lot of sun.  My wife would lightheartedly ridicule me for wearing a wider brim bucket hat or larger brimmed hat when I left for the course or was out on the water.  That's of course until she had several cancerous areas removed.   Now she wears a wide brimmed hat any time she goes outside.

I like the Ahead brand hats.  They have the Nicklaus-branded bucket hat and the larger brimmed Palmer- branded hats.  I tend to swap them out depending on how much wind we are expecting at the course.   Less wind=wider brim.  Unfortunately, we tend to have a constant and often hard blowing wind here, so there are times I have to step back to a standard ball cap to keep it on my head.

Of course "When you buy a hat like that, I bet you get a free bowl of soup!"
