Sun hat, not rain hat
June 9, 2013
Just finished two weeks of rain and wind. It was *supposed* to be hot and sunny, so this was one of the hats I packed. Then it rained for two weeks, with an hour of sun here and there. It worked fine as a sun hat, but in hard rain it soaked through quickly. Probably a spray coat of Thompson's Water Seal would have made it into a reasonable rain hat. The hidden pocket inside held a Coleman mosquito head net which would fit nicely over all. But instead, it kept my skull from crushing when the jeep bounced on a pothole. Nice. I kept changing the morale patches on my hat to keep my team amused. Overall, very happy, but if you need to pack a rain hat - think twice.
